WOD Challenge 3-30-20 Undeserved Isolation

Word of the Day Challenge

 

Through this undeserved isolation, things are getting done and there’s a bit of news on the horizon, a light at the end of the tunnel. I have a couple of new projects to get done, and I’m looking forward to the weekend for reasons I can’t share here. I am anxious for life to return to what it was before, because this feels like a punishment, even if we know it’s not. A wake up call, for sure, but not what any of us deserve, in my opinion.

At least I have projects, crafts, and tv, plus my family is around and not scared to share meals together several times a week. So far we are all healthy, if that changes, I’ll stay my butt at home completely. The only person that’s been ill in my family is keeping his distance, which may be the right call considering everything that’s going on. I do hope he finds a new job soon, it’s weird that we are all supposed to be “sheltering in place” yet plenty of stores are hiring right now. Please say a prayer he finds something soon.

I hope you all have a fabulous, productive, yet restful week. Stay well and stay connected everyone!

WOD Challenge & SOCS 3-21-20 Unwelcome Isolation

How’s everyone holding up this sunny Saturday?

Well, I just wanted to participate in today’s Word of the Day challenge as well as Linda G Hill’s SOCS challenge by combining both prompt words. This unwelcome isolation is for the birds, and frankly, people around here aren’t paying it too much attention yet. I will continue to visit my dad or have my family over for Sunday dinner as long as everyone is well until I am forced to stay home. We went out today to the packed grocery stores, gathering supplies that we may need if it does indeed come to that. We have heard rumors of such things as the National Guard being brought in, yet I don’t have any proof that is true. The constant barrage of fake news and rumor is causing my anxiety to rise, so I shut off the TV and ignore the crap on Facebook until local officials tell me otherwise. Let’s pray it does not get to that point. They tell us we can’t gather in groups as small as ten people, yet the stores are all busy. I don’t get it.

In the meantime, like I have said already, I can find plenty to do at home, but I miss hanging out with my friends at our monthly social events and my big concert I was going to for my birthday has been rescheduled to October 11th. No movies, no going out to eat, yet so far, I can still go for a walk in the park if I care to. Which I should while the weather is nice, or I’m gonna get fat from all this sitting around and eating home cooked meals, lol. We have to keep exercising and making healthy food choices, we are in control of that at least!

I hope you all have a great weekend, join your churches in their livestream services and FaceTime your friends and family!
