8:29am W

I’ve just gotten washed and dressed and starting to blow the cobwebs out of my mind. This period of sheltering at home is just weird. I’ve never experienced anything like this aside from recovering from chemo and the stem cell transplant. I am very grateful my family and close friends are all healthy, we have a bountiful supply of food, a nice cozy little house in a nice community, very good health insurance, a comfy bed to sleep in each night. I should never want for anything or complain.






I was reading an article this morning that the Covid-19 virus doesn’t go away but stays in your system and can keep coming back ( that may be bullshit but it’s still scary) and also there supposedly is some coverup that this virus was actually created as a biological weapon by the Chinese and an accident occurred where it somehow got released and started spreading rapidly ( probably also bullshit but again scary). There are too many things out there to read now and too many people, like me, with the time to read them.  



BEST EYE CREAM





I have three Zoom first private lessons this afternoon starting at 1:30 and going until 3:00, all good kids I normally had in weekly group lessons at school. 



The ground is covered with snow this morning. It snowed hard a couple times yesterday but then melted. Evidently it snowed a bunch during the night and it didn’t melt. I brought in all my potted plants yesterday. They’re probably going to wither and try to die on me now from the cold exposure. SOB. It just figures. I always get excited about spring coming and put my plants out too soon.

Staying on the right path

As you already know, I love my still morning times. I love the peacefulness and the slow sunrise. I get my best ideas in the morning perhaps because there are fewer distractions. I indulge in my silent alone time. I have been sleeping very well lately on my comfie gel-infused memory foam therapedic super squishy mattress topper, my foam wedge pillow with my dog-bone-shaped neck pillow and my vaporizer going misting eucalyptus essential oil and my Bill Maher Real Time podcasts playing on low. Good sleeping in that big super dark bedroom.
My nightly routine includes a whirlpool tub bath or warm steamy shower, exfoliating with a nubby washcloth, retinol & vitamin C facial cream rubbed in really well, flushing my sinuses with warm salt water with the water pik on gentle, using my Flonase spray, flossing my teeth, brushing with whitening tooth paste, rinsing my teeth with minty fluoride rinse, putting dry skin cream on my neck, chest, arms, legs, feet, putting on fluffy socks and soft stretchy pajamas, pulling my hair back in a big thick soft hair crunchy and lastly putting on a spritz or two of lemon balm essential oil. I’m pretty high maintenance but that all helps me sleep better. I also will use my nebulizer before bed if I remember. 

Today Casey is coming over to watch the last Bears game with Mike. We’re going to the store in a while to buy stuff to make sub sandwiches. I don’t think I’m going to hang around and watch it with them. The Bears suck and I can’t stand it. I’m thinking I’ll go to the lodge and work out and swim. That sounds good.
