Time is so important.
It has been so long since I have been online. We have had some rainy weather with lots of thunder and lightening storms. The last time I used my computer was when I posted last. I shut it down and unplugged it.
It is still dreary, drizzly and gloomy. This has been the gloomiest Spring I can recall in a long time.
I have been too sick to even have the energy to turn it back on and so I just left it.
So I have been sick again. I am so sure that you are all tired of hearing about my sickness. And I can assure you that I am tired of being sick.
This bug was really hard but not near as hard as the Covid-19. At one point I sneezed so hard and so many times I burst another vessel in the back of my eye. This time in the right eye and thankfully not as bad as the other time. It is lower in my vision so it is easier to deal with.
I have been self isolating and I am thankful that no one else has picked this up but 3 of my family members have a different type of bug. They are throwing up and I was so worried about Laurie that I was tempted to have her go to Urgent Care but she wouldn't have gone in fear of bringing home a different bug.
My doctors took care of me over telemedicine. At one point they were going to send me to be tested for Covid-19 but since I was only running a low grade fever I chose not to get out. I am feeling better but not a 100% just yet. I still don't have my voice back completely.
Nothing much has been going on in my neck of the woods. I keep my can of Lysol close by and I made some wipes from my little bottle of brown Lysol to wipe down the bathroom when I enter and exit. I was really lucky that when I ordered things online I was able to get both and a small quart of bleach. Most all cleaning supplies are depleted at this time. I have a half roll of paper towels and I don't know when we will be able to get anymore of that either. Kleenex and other tissues are also non-existent but we have been fairly lucky on food.
The first couple of weeks of Shelter In Place we were a bit worried because all shelfs were empty but our local supermarket is getting a truck every night. They just do not know what will be on them.
The kids are trying to get things with a good shelf life in case things get scarce again. I don't complain much because I am just grateful but we have plenty of food for the moment and plenty of water on hand.
I bow my head when ever I hear a siren going past our home. I pray for all those fighting this illness and all of those that are responding to those sick or hurt.
Last night a town over from us, three policemen were ambushed by a suspect who killed one of the officers and 2 others are in critical condition. This breaks my heart. Our Governor is supposed to have a conference later on today. I pray that the other two will recover from their injuries.
Karyn's roommate Tina made me a face mask. She is making everyone a mask so I want to give her some money so she can order more material.
Cathy has roosters on her mask, Karyn has puppy paws and mine is colored flames.
Karyn's roommate is such a nice lady. And she is good to Karyn as well.
Right before Karyn moved in Tina went to our supermarket, HEB and found a stray dog. She named him Heb. Obviously on the last visit Foxy had she and Heb got along great. Karyn took her home with her so we shall see how she reacts this visit.
I will close for now. I am getting tired and I think I will have some lunch and rest. Take care everyone... BB
