Before the bad news.
We went out to dinner with our friends tonight, and I love them so much, but their fear of Covid has reached an alarming (and annoying) level. I get that this is a serious situation, but…fuck, dude.
I’m so bored and over this fucking quarantine bullshit that I just cleaned a toilet for fun.
There is a DMB concert on right now, and I don’t even care. I’m tired of everything.
D and I have decided we’re both going into our offices tomorrow and spending the day away from home. Then we will meet up on the evening and go get dinner.
I need a break from this house. It’s starting to feel like a prison.
My ex-husband’s gf might have Covid, so Jackson will be staying here until we know.
I’m really nervous about school starting in the fall, and I’m not sure I’m going to send him back with things as they are. I wish Parkway would announce their plan so that I could make a decision. I’d prefer online with limited in-person instruction. If they don’t offer online learning, I’m seriously considering signing him up for a private online school. I’ve started looking into options.
I wish we had good leadership. This would have been hard regardless, but we’re stuck with an incompetent, narcissistic man child as our president, and cases surging in the US. I don’t know what to do, but I know I’m not sending him back with things as they are now.
Freya has been going to marching band practice every day for the last week, and I hate that too. From what I’ve observed, social distancing is not being taken seriously. I know our kids need a social outlet, but I have a bad feeling about this. If it were my decision, it wouldn’t be happening. Her safety (and ours) is more important than her social life.
Ugh. What a shitty year. Fuck you, 2020.
D and I got our Covid-19 testing done earlier at the CVS drive-thru near out house. It was a weird experience. They pass you a nasal swab kit through the drawer and you administer the test yourself. You have to put it straight back about an inch and then twirl it around for 15 seconds – then repeat on the other side. It’s unpleasant. My nose bled a bit, and is sore now. Then you package it up, wipe off the container, place the package inside, and wipe off the container again. It was a weird experience.
I’m feeling mostly the same as I have been. D is feeling pretty shitty. He’s relaxing right now. I’m still working. Business owners don’t really get sick days. Sigh.
We should have the results in two to four days. We already told Matt & Jen about it – so they know to be careful and watch for symptoms. The kids are staying here with us until we know the results – which isn’t much of a schedule change since we were already scheduled to have them this weekend.
In other news, due to this turn of events, we used Shipt for the first time this afternoon, and I am really impressed. I may never go to the grocery store again. I fucking HATE the grocery store – especially nowadays.
D and I woke up feeling bad again – especially him. He’s added chills, body aches, and swollen lymph nodes to his list of symptoms. I always have body aches so it’s hard to say with me. We are going to get tested for Covid-19 in about an hour.
I almost hope we have it so we can stop obsessing. Either way, it will be a relief to know. If it’s just allergies then this is the worst case of allergies I’ve had in my entire life.
Anyway…about the shirt. I’ve wanted this shirt forever but it’s always sold out. I finally found it in an xl, which is the size i wanted because the dmb women’s shirts run extremely small. It feels good, but it’s def still fitted. Crazy. I’m pumped to have it finally. ❤️
My grandmother, who lives in a local nursing home, has Covid-19, and isn’t doing well. I don’t have a good feeling about this.
Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.
