Today we should be in a state of lifting restrictions, possibly sitting on a bench in public? Personally, I was gearing up to give good vibes to my friend on his first day of chemo. Now I'm f'ing petrified!! I don't watch TV or news during the day, part of that is for my own … Continue reading It gets worse!!
On my last blog, was shocked and so upset - still am. J and his W came over for a social distancing brunch, outside, with my boys. This is going to royally suck, my boys are in their 20's and they just don't really comprehend what J is about to undergo. He's optimistic, he's always … Continue reading Devastated
The Bay Area is opening up, we've been in it the longest. A lot is still closed, gyms & salons are still closed. Supposedly retail opens up for curbside only, which will be interesting. Walnut Creek is kind of shopping central, we have a lot of high end shops here including a Neiman Marcus with … Continue reading Day 65: So ends my COVID chapter blog
Empty Cannery Row pics & the fly by as profile pic Besides the crazy hotel night where my neighbors were continually knocking on my door, starting at 10p and scaring the crap out of me, this has been a nice mini-trip. Would I say it's safe to travel? I don't know about commercial airline travel … Continue reading Day 60: Putting my big toe in the water
My mom is fine, we got out a little just to get her out of the house she's been locked into for the past 2 mos. with this squirrel as her BFF. The grocery stores have calmed down, the beaches are still all closed. It was Cinco de Mayo when I flew down there, was … Continue reading Day 54: Mom’s OK
Perfect flying day, it was now or never to fly down to L.A. solo. I kept checking the forecast for Friday and it kept switching up on me from sunny to cloudy. This beach fog is impossible to time, it'll be a few sunny days and then fog forevermore. It's easier to visually time it … Continue reading Day 50: In L.A., @ my mom’s
One more week, some tough decisions to make. Gearing up to fly myself down in a small plane to L.A. on Friday for Mother's Day weekend with my 83 year old mom who I haven't seen since this all started, she's been in isolation this whole time. She's already survived her 1st cousins on her … Continue reading Day 48: Do I see my mom for Mother’s Day?
Getting a little worried that there was no plan until after the elections in November the way things are going They alerted us that shelter in place was until the end of May now, then last night they laid out a plan in 4 stages. I'll admit to completely freaking out when they said the … Continue reading Day 44: California has a plan!!
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
