I woke up at 1:14 in the middle of the night as my damn cell phone went through an automatic update that made it chime. Then it took me at least 45 minutes to go back to sleep. When I woke at 6:30, for a moment it seemed like a normal day. Then our “new normal” instinct kicked in. Staying away from all people, not being able to go to the gym, etc. Good news is we’ve saved a ton on eating out and haven’t been to the dry cleaner in weeks. We have nowhere to wear nice clothes. Need to keep at it so hopefully this thing will go away.
Yesterday after running down to the house, Lori wanted to bring up the table from downstairs so we can all sit and eat together as a family. It was a good call as it was nice to hang out together. We also now have a place to play board games! The national news just came on and of course they’ve titled their newscast, The Coronavirus Newscast, give me a break. It’s as if they don’t think we all (everyone in the world) doesn’t know we’re in the middle of the Coronavirus?
Dr. C is negative too which is good news as Lori has him scheduled for surgeries on Wednesday and Friday. We stopped and gave Diana, her lead nurse, four bottles of wine when we went to the house. Our bathtub arrived scratched and cracked at the house so it needs to go back. We have plenty of time so no worries.
They say a little snow today but they said that yesterday too and we had none. The boys are doing really well working from home. One of Jag’s friend was accepted to Cornell but there’s a catch. He can’t enroll until Fall 2021 and has to go to another four year college and get a 3.3 average this coming year. Lori and I have never heard of such a thing. What if the guy does that and doesn’t get a 3.3? What if Cornell changes it’s rules by next year? What if the kid decides he wants to do something different in a year? Plus on top of it all, it takes away a spot from a kid who wants to go to the four year school Jag’s buddy would only go to for a year. Stupid if you ask me. Anyhow the boys Mom and I talked about it and New York probably won’t even be open this Fall. Jag was hoping to get into Columbia but didn’t. CU is looking really good which makes Lori and I happy. Plus as I said, what if some shit like this happens again? It’d sure be good for him to be 90 minutes away from home instead of thousands of miles. Last, it’s the cheapest option there is which is a major part of the decision.
We’d love to load up the car and go somewhere warm like Arizona but all the hotels are closed too. I told Lori we just need to ride it out. If we do go out, it’s to the house or grocery shopping over in Frisco. Summit County has only like 15 cases while here in Eagle we have 187. So we’re basically staying away from everyone, no exceptions.
Time to go, hope everyone is well, do not go out if you don’t have to. If you’re over 60 and need groceries, go when the store first opens as they reserve an hour for, wait for it, senior citizens. Damn, I cannot believe or accept that I am a senior citizen, just won’t do it, ha. God Bless.
