Thursday Thoughts

It's been 2 weeks since SP's company told employees to work from home. Since he was sick before that, it's more like 3-4 weeks that I've had company during the day (he took several sick days and worked from home a few days while he was sick). We've settled into a new routine, one that is not much different from the previous routine. He works from his office, I do my usual things, sometimes I hear his conference calls, sometimes he goes for a walk, dinner is still after 7 pm, we still don't go to bed until nearly 1 am, but we do sleep in until 8:30-9 am. It's amazing how much extra time there is without a 40 minute commute each way!

Like everyone (or like everyone should be), we are staying home except for grocery trips. Our plumber visits did not end last Friday. Turns out a pipe under the garage/driveway was leaking, so this past Monday the plumbers jackhammered up a corner of the garage to replace a section of pipe.  Four plumber visits, thousands of dollars, gallons of bleach, and cans of bleach wipes later, everything is OK (as far as anyone can tell).

I'm still suffering from allergies which means my mind still goes to horrible places when I sneeze, ache, or feel it in my chest. I guess that's the "new normal" for me for the next 18 months. I worry what this stress/anxiety is doing to everyone's health. I know we're both very worried because we both have pre-existing conditions that put us in the high-risk category. We try to stay informed but sometimes, we have to turn off the news.

What We're Eating:

What We're Watching:

  • The Outsider (HBO). Really good. We watched all ten episodes last weekend. I liked it more than I expected.
  • Abominable (movie). Cute animated movie.
  • Where'd You Go, Bernadette (movie with Cate Blanchett). I enjoyed this more than I expected based on reviews. I have not read the book, but now I might.
  • Survivor. I haven't watched for years but started again this season. Interesting how the tribal council votes have gone.

What I'm Reading:
I finished The Body Outside the Kremlin by James L. May. Very good read. I have a lot of thoughts about the book and what's going on in the world right now but I'm going to to keep my thoughts to myself!
