Yesterday with Ty gone to basketball, Jag at Lexi’s (he wasn’t feeling up to a 6 hour bus ride and playing in the game), and Lori in Denver getting her hair done, I started to pack some stuff in my room for the Great Move. Fyi, that’s what I’m calling our upcoming move to the new house.
I only packed four boxes but it took a while as I went through stuff before packing them. No point in packing stuff I don’t want. I ended up with three boxes for my office and one for my closet. Lots more to do but you have to start somewhere.
Jag stayed at Zach’s as Harmon, their friend from 10th grade, is visiting from the east coast and Ty stayed with one of his friends, Mason, who is on his basketball team. Lori and I are headed to the gym and then will go down to the house to check things out. I think we’re changing the hardwood (engineered) floors after walking through Jennifer Ebner’s house yesterday which is about a month ahead of us. Our floor sample now looks kind of orange which we don’t want of course.
Another case of conorvirus was found in California and now 56 million people are quarantined. That’s a big number but as I said yesterday, if this is the big one, a pandemic like the Spanish Flu in the early 1900’s, it’s already too late. The mortality rate of this virus is already higher than the Spanish Flu. Celebrations have been cancelled across the Globe and one medic says more than 100,000 people are infected, not the 4000 as reported. I tend to believe the medic as when has any government told the truth. Can you imagine what will happen to the World’s economy if all air travel is stopped? Most governments are more concerned with their economy than some, according to them, small flu like outbreak where a few people die. This is exactly how things spread. By the way, those surgical masks do little to no good. Everyone has to decide what kind of threat this is on their own and act accordingly. I’m not to the point where we’re on lock down from travel but we could get there in a couple of weeks. I will be watching any Chinese person I see in public closer though. I’m sure I’d be considered racist by some liberals for even suggesting that, ha. I’m only mentioning this to document it in case this is “the one”. God help us if it is.
Lori has her other PA out with the flu so that’s both PA’s and both nurses. She’s busy cancelling patients for tomorrow. They switched the team to Tamiflu from Z Paks. I’m taking my Z Pak just in case. I have an appointment tomorrow at 11 am for my hernia or should I say hernias! Robi commented yesterday about when I was a kid and yes I do remember having a double hernia when I was like 2 or 3! Surprised you remember, maybe I was 5 or 6. I’m feeling ok though.
Both boys just walked in at 8 am. Time to get moving so we can get to the gym and the house. Enjoy the day and stay vigilant. Without sounding too paranoid, if you’re going to the grocery store, buy a few extra bags of rice or pasta or whatever you buy, just in case. There’s an old saying in the military which is a good mantra to live by, 2 is 1 and 1 is none. This means if you plan on having something you need whether food, spare car parts, extra dog food, toiletries, anything, always buy two! I even do this with some shoes. When I find a new pair I really like, I buy two pairs, not one. Oh well, to each their own, just a suggestion. God Bless.
