Sleep drunk

8:13am

I fell asleep on the couch last night and slept for hours. When I woke I was uncomfortable and felt groggy as I staggered to the bathroom then climbed in bed then cuddled up to soundly sleeping Michael. We’ve been watching the TV series Ozark on Netflix. It’s kind of dark, funny, creepy. There are three seasons and we fell asleep on the first episode. I have five Zoom lessons this afternoon if they show up and remember. 

8:49 pm

I went to two stores and the post office today. It felt good to get out and drive. I had five Zoom private lessons.I made salsa verde.

Getting through it

9:52 am Sunday

It get occasional waves of anxiety about this pandemic situation. I try to not be a total swamp bitch to my husband but sometimes I daydream about punching him in the mouth. I don’t think I could run fast enough to realistically ever actually do that. Well, maybe if he was sleeping. It is nice to have someone to cuddle up with and rub my feet at night though. I’m on my fourth cup of coffee so that may be adding to my being a little more cranked up.

Mike is, of course, watching the news. I’m so sick of the news I want to smash them all in the teeth with a hammer too. Of course I never actually act on these violent thoughts but at least I can visualize it. It’s starting to get to me how insensate and oblivious my spouse is. Our twenty two years together have been sweetly seasoned with me going away for a few days at least once a month. It has given our marriage breathing room.i did actually get out alone and go grocery shopping alone the other day and I was gone a couple hours. I really like driving especially in my new car. It’s so nice. 







We’re going to go over and see Mike’s mom today. We haven’t been over to visit her in over a month. Mike has been taking her to her immune therapy infusion treatments and there’s one coming up Tuesday. We video chat with her and keep in touch that way.

I got pictures of my puppy’s parents yesterday.

Just stay calm and breathe



The chicken I roasted turned out very so-so. I cooked it in my new stoneware pot. I’ll have to get used to it. I’ll turn the leftover chicken meat into something else. I’m looking forward to the debate tonight. I don’t know what else Bernie could possibly say at this point. It will do him no good to try to cut down Biden or boast about his platform. The horse has left the barn. It also will be weird with no spectators. I’m just intrigued enough to watch it. I have a bunch of work assessment tests to grade and calculate. I’m not looking forward to doing that. Next week will be better for that. Mike’s newspaper company has them all working from home for now. He’s head of sports but there are no games being played so his department is scrambling to come up with interesting stories. On Tuesday, election day-night, he’ll be going in to the office though.

It’s so weird how things have changed so quickly- the state, the country, the world. 










I cleaned the kitchen up and scrubbed my stoneware pot. The sun is shining out after yesterday’s snow. Now the snow is all gone. I have a bunch of flower seeds and flower roots to plant when the danger of frost is gone. It will be good to get out there and dig.

 I keep fighting the heartache. I keep pushing it back and tucking it under the bed. Theres so much going on right now with family and friends. Things I can’t fix but still need to live with. Give it to God. I have to be grateful and count my blessings.
