Just poppin’ in. We have been sailing along in our work week and now all the focus is getting things done before headed off to vacay – both at work and the home front. I think this makes us very boring people. lol
My work. I am chomping down on getting the quarter end accomplished amidst weekly payrolls and all the normal duties that come with paying the payroll taxes and garnishments each week. I’ve come in early, stayed late, and on some days didn’t take lunch. But, I usually needed some kind of break so yesterday I drove to get Taco Bell, to give my spirits a boost and actually see that other parts of the world still exists – more than just home and work. I’m closing in on the quarter end. Most of it done but then there is a new month end now and all that has to be done as well. So I’m a little nervous considering there is a lot I need to do in the next 3 days before the payroll toots it horn again – and then we are gone as I won’t have the end of the next week to do anything. It really has to all be done this week or close to it. I will need my week next week after work to prep for leaving so I’m trying to get everything done this week.
George’s Work. As for George, what a horrible thing – his boss had given notice and is no longer there. George’s assistant is no longer there as of this week and George goes on vacay next week. His days has been extremely busy since his department has gone from 3 to 1. And we leave for vacay next week which unless they find someone to step in, there will be 0. So quite interesting. However, it is understood by all that we leave when we do. After all, his vacay was turned in well in advance, as was mine, and all approved.
Disappearing things. It’s funny because this week – my planning, shopping, and “doing things” is broken down into “before Texas” and “after Texas”. And as I reached for my black dry erase markers and the pack of colors from which that came – I find it no where. Now where did my dry erase markers walk off to? The mysteries of life. How can I plan w/o my dry erase markers? lol I’ll have to order those “after Texas” now. But I’ve looked everywhere for these in my office here. No where to be found. It’s like there is a ghost in this house making all the mysteries happen. A favorite lotion I reached for – now an empty container. Maybe it all dried up somehow? I usually throw things away when it’s empty though. And there is the conditioner. The one I put in the shower but saving it to use until all the other conditioners are gone, but yet this new one is almost empty now? How does that happen? Is someone using my shower when I’m not there? Unlikely as George has his own shower. Weird and odd. So maybe conditioners evaporate over time? lol So yeah, that favorite conditioner will be on the list to buy after Texas. Petty but yet perplexing. I’m pretty big on things being a certain way and in a certain place and left alone. The result of being an only child until the age of 10. Became permanently settled at that point that I didn’t want my stuff touched. I don’t like for anything to be moved or touched. And I can usually tell when it’s misplaced or moved. I guess we’ll toss this up there with the other unsolved mysteries of life. And life goes on and on. Mysteries unsolved. Yet.
The next video. I have been working on it but not happy with it. And I’m not really inspired and in a creative mood to deal with it, having the pressures of work and prepping for a trip. It’s hard to make it interesting when there is just not much going on. As I say during this pandemic its trying to make something out of nothing. I like parts of it, but some parts have to go. And there’s not enough happening to replace it with. And I’ve had problems with the best clip of the video – something happened to damage the video when I sent it over to iMovie and it’s all black. Another picture is all green. So I think I deleted and reinstalled the video clip in the time line and think it is working now. But I think I’ve about decided that this one will be tossed. The only thing that will save it will be if I can add some more interesting things to it. I’m trying but I’m not going to put something out there that I’m not happy with.
Suspicious minds. And I’m just really suspicious of the virus stuff again. What is weird is that media seems to be cutting away anything that remotely suggests that the virus can be cured/controlled. Is someone afraid of not being the one to get that vaccine money? Even I got in trouble for having a certain company in the same paragraph with the virus and I wasn’t even talking about a cure but what to eat (shakes/nutrition) if we couldn’t get to the store or restaurants on our girls trip in March. Is someone getting paid to remove this stuff? Or the media getting paid to announce or denounce certain things? So if you mention a possible cure or treatment it gets removed quickly as false news. But if I were to mention that water cured cancer, and did a video on that – no one would remove it would they? So why is not everything else being censored? People post things all the time that are not true or speculation or opinion and it’s not removed. This whole thing is just suspicious. So I believe the virus is real – well I guess. Although I don’t know anyone close to me that has had it even with the numbers as high as they are, but apparently it is real. But they are so dead set against anyone having a cure and just saying it’s false information. And even people who haven’t been tested have been called and said their test was positive, lol. What??? They are also heatedly, fervently, purposely, and quickly removing information that people swear heatedly as truth – but not as much fervor on ANY other subject of questionable posting. I can post that the stars will fall out of the sky tomorrow and they would leave that one alone. This is just highly suspect to me.
Everyone keeps saying when the election is over, there will be cures suddenly for the disease and such – and it’ll all start getting back to normal. This whole thing has just been crazy and suspect they way it’s all going down and everything political surrounding it.
Ok, I’ll quit with my suspicions now. But like a lot of others I’m concerned and mad about free speech being messed with. And now I’m starting to believe that much of the hoopla is just an overgrown political mess. I hate hate hate election years. It used to be because of the media and I could just avoid it. It’s still a media issue and I’m still trying to avoid it but don’t mess with my life too. If there is a cure and patients are getting well and over it by numerous doctors who are treating with the three famous and cheap drugs and no one dying from it, then why the fervor to knock that down? They would prefer we all lived in fear and paid for the vaccine? Or lived in fear and stayed home and the economy tanked to Trump wouldn’t be reelected? I guess we’ll see how it shakes out.
Ok I will get off and go to work now, but if we’ve worn masks, not seen friends and family because this is a political ploy there’s gonna be some bad show down going on out there when this is over as it will make so many people mad. Geez Louise? What are your thoughts on all this? And again I’m not saying the virus is not real. I’m just mad about the things I mentioned above.
Ya’ll have a good day.

I. Just. Can’t.
Hi Sonya, from a beautiful warm sunny day here in the lovely village of Box….
Like most folks I think we are all getting a bit tired of all the political questions and answers, one party says one thing the other the opposite, you don’t know who to believe,,,,.so me ? I just follow my instincts , no matter who says what. I wash my hands, use my mask if amongst others, not for my sake but for others…if they don’t believe in wearing them ok by me, but don’t invade my space……….end offff..
I’m so happy that each day brings you nearer to Kate as no doubt she is longing to see her Mom….take care. God Bless you George the dogs and Little Bit xxx
The drugs that work are older and no longer under patient so they are not making enough money on them. Ha, did we not know the pharacutial companies toss out workable drugs when they are out of patient and cannot demand the larger prices. If a the swamp wins the problem will end
I would make sure there is no window open or unlocked door at your house. It could be someone who is sneaking in while you and your husband are at work. This reminds me of a movie where there was a man living in a woman’s attic that they did not know about. He would slip down while they were sleeping and sneak food. And just make himself home while they were working. Eventually, he got caught.
This virus is very real. Be safe and very careful. I know one person who has had it and they were in the rehab center for months. The family could only see them through the window.
I read that hospitals are running out of drugs, beds, ventilators, and even staff in Texas. (read in The Texas Tribune.) This virus is a dire situation. And is going to be around for a good while longer. Texas has become a hot spot for the global pandemic. Since July 1st 50,599 cases were in Texas.
I had to zoom call with my family Doctor. He said to wear a mask, wash hands, social distance 6 feet, Everyone here is wearing a mask with the exception of a few. We have had 117000 that have tested positive for COVID-19. 1,889 dead.
I am a regular reader but have not commented before. My daughter is an infectious disease pharmacist at our local hospital. We have had people ill and dying. Although there is much misinformation about, the best outcomes among the seriously ill have been in patients treated with the antiviral Remdesivir. I can only hope that we all take time and effort to seek out credible, data driven, unbiased scientific sources for medical information. The vast majority of our medical professionals train for many years and work diligently to provide the best treatments possible. The science says that we need to mask and social distance to control this virus until we have a vaccine.
I am old enough to have seen people crippled from polio, which is now prevented by a vaccine.
My daughter’s wedding has been postponed for a year due to the virus. She does not get any benefit from using one treatment versus another in the hospital. She strictly uses the medication that gets the best results. This is all to say that this is a medical problem, and all politicians need to be supporting the science that will bring it under control. I hope that we all remain safe and healthy, and send best wishes to you and your family.
I agree ☝️- never questioned that.
Never questioned our medical profession is what I meant 🙂
