From that phone call to now has been 2.5 months, like a freight train. Maybe more like a sledge hammer into my heart. I'm in utter shock and so sad. Have to pull myself together for the boys, he went to their graduations and all our family events. Devastating 🙁
Really, the state of humanity is just taking a nose dive 🙁 The only way I'm keeping sane is by not watching news until the end of the day, then follow it up with Seinfeld reruns. It's my version of hiding under the covers until this is all over. My friend J goes for his … Continue reading Rain storms & riots
Because my flight to L.A. went so well, door to door to see my mom without interacting with anyone, after Mothers Day I really needed some personal isolation. There are a few places that are my favs for just hanging out and long walks, Monterey is a place I come quite a few times a … Continue reading Day 58: NOT time to travel yet!!

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
Nothing like everyones life on hold indefinitely for a virus/government shutdown. In Northern California the hardest hit are the nursing homes and then a homeless shelter in San Francisco that has a ton of cases as of yesterday. As I go about my new routine, trying to get out of this funk again, it occurs … Continue reading Day 26: Corona-coaster
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
