The original goal to get me through this was the Bisbee stair climb in Oct. to see my family. I've spent this whole shelter in place time training for that, until last week when my back went out. It's OK, still planning it - it just might be a slow walk with a lot of … Continue reading Day 42: Dreaming & planning
Switched up my long term goal to getting instrument rated (IFR), I can fly still. For some reason I thought we were limited to essential flying, turns out they limited the ATC hours but we can still fly. I might surprise my mom and fly down to L.A. for mother's day, will have to work … Continue reading Day 41: Moving on with my life
My back is a ton better, no relaxers yesterday or last night. These episodes usually last a lot longer, I think the swimming and slow jogging strengthened it enough to not take me to the ground. There will be no more sprinting for me! I wish I could write out my day, let's just say … Continue reading Day 40: Semi normal day
To walk to the mailbox with!! Yay!! Tomorrow is 40 F'ing days. I'm learning a lot about myself, that I'm not a homesteader or a homemaker & I'm pretty close to going INSANE!!! At least my back is doing a lot better, haven't taken any pain stuff today. The Bay Area has been in this … Continue reading Day 39: New sandals!!
Still bed ridden, a lot better than yesterday at least. More sore from laying in bed than my actual back at this point. 2 things I love most, darting off places and actually getting out and doing stuff - gone in a second with that sprint the other day & this COVID lock down. My … Continue reading Day 38: Or 380?
AHHHHHHHHH!!! This always comes out of nowhere, takes me completely out of the game. As sucky as this whole shelter in place thing has been, at least I've been running and getting in shape. I've lost 5 lbs through all this, was going to come out the other side ready for a bikini in Hawaii. … Continue reading Day 37: Back’s out, I’m out
Last night there was another note from a friend saying the company is folding, jobless. Two messages in one day about job loss where businesses are folding. Lives and livelihoods, no wonder once a week I'm having a NBD! On the to-do list today is the drive through vet, gives me something to do while … Continue reading Day 36: Get my shit back together
There are aspects of this where we're in a good spot, namely our age of being close to retirement. It's hard to say what's going to happen? It looks like they're going to extend it in CA, SoCal is May 15th with no updates here in the Bay Area. They got the go-ahead to put … Continue reading Day 35: The start of yet another week
Much needed day on the Bay, felt so nice to forget about everything and sail. The docks were re-done, we were asked to move the boat back to the new docks and by the time we got it started it looked like perfect winds. OMG, I hope everyone has some way to escape just … Continue reading Day 34: Mental Health day
Spent the morning reading blogs from different parts of the world, we all seem to share the same parts of this. Stay home orders, can't go to work, crappy Gov't responses. When I was in Paris a few months ago, the sales clerk and I chatted about Trump & Macron. Neither of us were thrilled … Continue reading Day 33: Suck it up people, this is worldwide !!
