Been Missing for a Minute

Tuesday, March 24, 2020

I can't believe that it's been 42 days since my last blog. There's a heck of a lot of changes that have happened, both for me and the world.

Got hella sick, got tested for Covid19 and the flu at the same time, that was a fun ER visit. Negative for bat soup croup, but positive for Influenza A. Survived that at home, just some lingering bronchitis. Not only did I not get either position I was hoping for, I am currently unemployed; BLD is stoked to have me around all day. I've got family to fall back on, so we are going to be fine money wise for a while, at least for the duration of the lockdown.

So we have plenty of food, and I'm slowly regaining my energy. Trying to improve the organization of the apartment,occasionally doing vintage Leslie Sansone walking videos, doing jigsaw puzzles and trying to not lose my inhaler. Or my sense of humor, because the world isn't being very funny right now.

BLD is doing his part to keep me laughing. The little jerk decided he was going to pee upon a stack of canned vegetables that I have sitting on the floor, waiting to be put away. I caught him right as he was lifting his leg and managed to scoop him up and deposit him on his pee pads in the corner just in time. I stared him right in the eye and hosed the pile of tins down with Lysol spray. That's MY territory, bucko! Bless his heart, he never does things like that, but things have been weird and it was a lot of new stuff, piled up in the middle of everything. I'm not angry at him, I'm just hoping he doesn't turn into the Mad Micturator out of anxiety or something.

Weight loss is still proceeding, albeit slowly. It's all diet related, though; haven't had the oomph necessary for doing much exercise. Who knows, by the end of this lockdown I might have discovered a waistline and lost the bingo wings!

I hope everyone is well and well taken care of out there. I'm really glad that the Spark community is here for us.

    Wow, you had a lot going on.

    Glad you are feeling better. While probably better than the corona virus, having the flu isn't a party.
    My sister had Influenza A and it took several weeks to get her strength back and feel more like herself.

    Sounds like BLD was being ornery and wanting your attention.

    Have a great rest of your week!

    What a time. Glad to hear you are feeling better finally. Influenza can really put you down for longer than many people realize! Can take weeks to feel better. emoticon emoticon
