A Brave New World

Do you have any idea what is going to happen? I know I don’t! I do think that fear is playing a huge part. I think there are many of us living each day like it might be our last before a quarantine.

The Boy came home from work last night and stated ” the manager on duty told me to fill out unemployment papers.” He works as a dishwasher and all Ohio restaurants are now carry out only. Not much need for more than one dishwasher when they are only cleaning up after the cooks. Yes, it’s scary but like I told him….he still lives at home….yes he has a car payment, and insurance, and cell phone but at least he is not supporting himself. That would be me….I could be next. If they shut us down, there is no guarantee that I will be paid…I might be filling out the same paperwork. I wish there was a way that they could set it up so I could work from home?

My favorite coffee shop ran a special on their bags of coffee. I saved $10.00 by purchasing 5 bags. It won’t last as long as it should since the Girl has started drinking it more. Ever since I donated the Keurig and changed to a simple pour over, the Girl seems to be drinking more coffee? If we get shut down tomorrow I will still have the best coffee for the duration.

I also stopped at Target. I thought maybe I could get the stuff they recommend to have on hand ….in case…. Target had nothing. I bought the dog a back up bag of food, some tissues, and they had a bag of hoagie sandwich buns so I grabbed it for the kids since you can’t find bread anywhere.

I drove to my aunt and uncle’s where I left a jar of vegi broth on their doorstep and then headed to Walgreen’s.  I spent $30.00 on the stuff they recommend. I don’t use any of it so I had to buy all of it.

I forgot to buy a thermometer. I never used one when the kids were little, I only used my lips to their forehead and I was spot on every time. If I get sick…the mommy-meter won’t work and to be honest…it’s rusty….I’m not sure how accurate I could be? Hopefully we won’t need any of these products? Fingers crossed…

My Chewy order was set to ship on Saturday, I added some cat litter and changed the date to “ship now”….again, in case things get shut down. If the cat doesn’t get his special food, then his hair falls out above his tail….the two of us and our food reactions. (insert eye roll).

Speaking of reactions….have you ever used Bai products? I bought their antioxidant water because there were no more water choices at Sam’s Club and I thought the antioxidants might help. I drank 8….maybe 12 ounces of the stuff before I felt the reaction on my chin grow. So what else is in this stuff? Something is in there because I don’t react that fast unless it’s a chemical I am sensitive to…. Now the kids get fancy water to drink. If it keeps them healthy than I can’t regret the purchase.

I was surprised at how many patients showed up today, especially since the phone rang all day with cancellations and “are you still open” calls. I found out through patients that all dentist offices are closed….I guess I don’t have that appointment on Wednesday….

Like I said…a brave new world. Who knows what will happen next? Please be safe out there and check in once in a while so we know you are safe….Zia
