Besides the 3 of us (4 if you include the dog) in an ever shrinking house, I finally found a quarantined, long term goal of the 30th Anniversary of the Bisbee stair climb in Oct. I've done this quite a few times, my back has prevented me the last couple of years - either that … Continue reading Day 23: Always look @ the bright side of life
Just going to wing it here, certainly not a professional anything. I do have a pilots license and sailing certifications that train you mostly on how to handle an emergency. We got our phone alert notifications yesterday that it is indeed extended until May 3rd at least. I never do the lame top 10 stuff … Continue reading Day 16: Handling a crisis tips
Yesterday was just ugly for me, usually I'm one who goes into action in a crisis and then falls apart when it's all good. With everyone home and good, it was my turn to finally fall apart and lose hope for all of mankind. There have been a few instances where I went into "Heller" … Continue reading Day 11: Are we there yet?
If this has taught me anything it's that as unsocial as I can be at times, the internet isn't a good replacement for human interaction. I got our piano group set up on Zoom, just to see if it was a viable replacement for our cancelled meeting. Besides the video freezing up, the sound worked … Continue reading Day 8: Zoom meetings
They spent 2 nights in the truck away from other people, then I can relax about family since we'll all be together. I'm starting to form an opinion about how this is going to go down, granted I'm nowhere near being a Dr. of anything. We'll all get this, like we've all gotten the flu, … Continue reading Day 6: Family is almost home
It's only the beginning, not sure when the end will be? Supposedly April 7th, everyone here is scrambling to keep their jobs/businesses (in our case). This is not a popular blog, there's a limited tracker on it from wordpress that just tells me what country is viewing. When I did my first blog before the … Continue reading Day 3 of Bay Area Shelter in Place
Of "Shelter In Place." Tick tock My family is all set up with food and TP for 3 weeks, we'll have to deal with business and job fallout another day. So far, no one in my family has been laid off...yet. Already people can kiss both of those goodbye indefinitely. Gavin Newsome said to not … Continue reading Only Day 2???
Of the whole Bay Area being on "Shelter in place." We got the notifications on our cell phones yesterday, can't say that was a big surprise. As I understand it, we can go battle the hoarders at grocery stores & pharmacies yet stay 6' away from anyone if we want to go for a run. … Continue reading Captains Log – Day One
Panic is over for me, for now. There's a game plan for my mom, called her brother to make sure he's got some groceries in case Bisbee gets hit with the grocery stores (store) clearing out. He said all good. It's eerie walking around here on a Sunday when downtown is usually bustling? My Sun … Continue reading Mellow Monday
Seems as if the world's gone mad, I'm so upset over all this! Friday I grabbed a few weeks worth of food, no problem. Yesterday the grocery stores were cleaned out, the girl who stayed with us not even a week ago that works at Trader Joes said they might actually have to close. In … Continue reading Insanity
