That was actually me around day 14 - I was waiting to cut my hair around my birthday (March 27) as I might have had jury duty and wanted to look semi decent. Then covid shut the world down and I missed my hair cut, which was last done in December. It. Is. Touching. My. Neck. (I hate that)
I am actually surprised I haven't cut it myself - yet.
It looks like things are starting to slowly reopen this weekend. I saw that Hobby Lobby was open yesterday - HOBBY LOBBY! I cannot wait to get in there for the smell of the store alone. I cannot describe it but it is one of my favorite smells. Like a bookstore smells of ALLTHEBOOKS - Hobby Lobby smells of ALLTHECRAFTS. I have missed it greatly.
I used to whine a lot about having to go grocery shopping and now I miss the easiness of how it used to be. Shopping now requires a mask and planning LOL Although, some changes I absolutely love - the curbside pickups are fabulous. Drive up, pop the trunk, drive away. That needs to stick around!
Amazon has more things available for Prime free delivery now too. During the first weeks it was impossible to find puzzles and paint by numbers kits at all and if they had them there was at least a $10 shipping charge and you might get it in June. I was able to get stuff here in a few days last week and for that I am grateful as I am running out of puzzles.
I mean, really? How perfect is that? I have been amusing myself with Disney's Emoji Blitz - mostly to collect the emoji because they made everything else either too complicated to do or impossible unless you spend real money. But you can still collect coins and emoji. And apparently the number of the beast too :)
I am not kidding about that. I have lost all track of time and I know I am not the only one. Every day melts into the next and I hate that. It probably doesn't help that I never bought a wall calendar this year and while I have a daily planner I don't see it unless I go look at it and right now, who needs a planner?!
Look at computer
Stare at things
Puzzle, craft, paint stuff
Fight depression from news
Sleep not sleep because wtf is happening in the world
Still - my current planner ends in June so I spent some time looking for a new one. I decided I needed to work a bit more with my highs and lows and the moon. Since I have always been so in tune with the Moon, I want to track daily, how I am feeling and what is going on etc. So, I got a Moon journal and Moonology and am hoping that will help me stay grounded in whatever fucking day it happens to be and I stop thinking its Friday when it is actually Sunday.
I watched a birthday/graduation parade yesterday in front of my house. A ton of cars decorated their windows and tied balloons to their bits and drove up and down the streets honking and playing music and celebrating their people. Because we are still being isolated and it can be so sucky. So watching that made me all teary eyed. I am blaming my period but still. There is often too much negative news and not enough stuff to make me smile and that made me smile.
This is a not so brave new world happening and cabin fever is making me itchy to see what happens next. Also, I really hope toilet paper and paper towels are more available soon. I am pretty sure the people who hoarded it back in March will have enough til 2050 at this point. Save some for the rest of us, huh?
73 says between blogs. 73 days of staying indoors and watching the world via computer screens. 73 days of watching covid change everything. 73 days of not cutting my own hair off. 73 days of wondering what comes next.
