Quarantines Day 8-9

Lets start with a State of Kentucky report:

The governor has ordered all non essential retail businesses to close. People are rejoicing that liquor stores count as essential. I am a little sad that Hobby Lobby does not count as essential. I think Lowes counts as essential I have several projects I want to finish while I am home.

People started a fb group so people can make and share memes about what a great job our governor is doing. Its not often Kentucky makes the news for doing something right. You may remember several years ago when the county clerk in my town made international news for not doing her job. You may have also seen our previous governor in the news for being a dumbass. I have designed some shirts for my shop showing my love for our leadership.

We have over a hundred cases of the virus so far, thankfully none in my town yet.

Now on to the State of Holly report:

I am mildly embarrassed at how well the McDonalds drive thru staff knows me know. Its just so convenient because its right across the road from my house. I don't even have to get out of my post apocalyptic wardrobe of sweats and a tshirt with no bra. Also I haven't exercised in days and have eaten my weight in food everyday.

Non essential businesses apparently include cell phone repair stores. I had a massive freak out when my phone started having vertical lines through it and fading so much I couldn't see the screen. Thankfully I was able to call in a favor from a friend that does phone repairs and he hooked me up with a new screen. It did have a weird glitch tonight and kept typing q in a message like it was possessed and it doesn't want to go to a black screen when you are talking on the phone. Thankfully, I rarely actually talk on the phone so it should be fine.

I am trying to keep busy. Today I tackled the huge task of cleaning out my filing cabinet and purging stuff I didn't need to keep. I've been dreading that job for months.

I've also started rewatching Greek on Hulu. I forgot how good that show was. Team Cappie all the way.

Quarantined Day 1-7

Lets revive this old blog and  hopefully while I am off work for the foreseeable future I'll be more regular about posting.

So, what do I hope to accomplish here? Nothing lol. I just want a place to journal what is going on possibly share some tips, maybe make you laugh. Basically, how am I spending my time now that I am working from home, and home schooling an honors/AP student. Imagine the good old days of journal blogging. That's me right now.  

So lets call it day 7 of quarantine. Really that just means day 7 since all the schools closed.

What you have missed days 1-6 obviously I mean Kentucky Specifically. Schools closed, restaurants are drive thru only or delivery. Basically, any business that faces the public is closed. Exceptions to that are stores, utilities, banks, factories, post office and hospitals. The doctors offices aren't doing anything elective. Emmy (in case you're new here she is my almost 16  year old.) had her last orthodontist appointment but it was canceled. We aren't stressing it because it was basically just to check that her retainer still fits and is working. It is so we're all good.

We had tickets to see Wicked on Broadway. That isn't happening now. We are really bummed it was Emmy's epic 16th birthday adventure in New York. Our tickets were 6 freakin' rows back from the stage. I'm dying inside. But I do agree the right decisions have been made. We will get tickets for another time and who knows maybe be will be closer than 6 rows. (Fingers Crossed)

I mean people we have to laugh around here. I spend a lot of money on those tickets, it was canceled (but we've been told a refund is coming) I had paid for our rooms and for 10 more I could have gotten insurance but I literally thought what in the world would keep us from going? Aside from an apocalypse. Oh yeah an actual apocalypse.  So that money is gone. I had paid a few hundred for Em to go to a School trip. I don't know if your state has this but ours has a mock government complete with elected officials and people passing laws. She had worked so hard on her Sex Trafficking bill and was ready to present it. She had a bill pass into law in 8th grade and was hoping to repeat it.   Nope the whole thing was canceled I'll only get a partial refund on that. She was invited to prom for two different schools. I thankfully did not buy a dress yet because it looks like school may be online for the rest of the school year.

On day 7 Em started talking in a Russian accent. She read about Rasputin and that did it. She has a really good accent. One of her best friends is from Russian. But its a little annoying.

My phone also decided that today would be a good day to slowly start its death spiral. It has lines through it and slowly fades so you can't see what you are looking at.....and yes I am wearing my reading glasses, thanks for asking. 

So that's pretty much the last 7 days. Where are you and what are you doing to keep occupied in this crazy time?
