Careless People

Yesterday we picked up Jameson from an extended visit with his father, whom had plotted and planned this long weekend after he was informed that Jameson would be going to preschool 5 day per week after the first of the year. His father very quickly hatched the plan to have the long weekend fearing lost time with his son. On the ride home he asked us twice if we felt good....

HFS

Jost got news today that a friend of mine is on a ventilator. She has covid. My ex-mother-in-law sent me a message this morning, informing me of this sad, sad news. I’ve known this woman since high school. They took her to the hospital in a helicopter. Admittedly I haven’t spent much time with her, or her husband, who is also a good friend, since the pandemic started. I’ve been a homebody, cautious....

An Historic Day

Usually you don’t know you’re living through a day that will make history. Although some exceptions do exist, like September 11, 2001. But today is one of those days. Two life-altering things happened today. First, American health care workers started to receive the Covid vaccine, and that is truly amazing. From pandemic to vaccine in less than a year is just miraculous! And second, the Electoral College affirmed Joseph R Biden as the President-Elect of the United States of America....

When it Hits Home

So my ex-wife took my son golfing yesterday with her bestie, then they went to dinner and went to her bestie’s house. She then dropped him back off last night. This morning (on my birthday) her bestie called me and told me her sister, brother-in-law, and nephew were all confirmed positive for COVID and they were together the previous night, with her nephew sleeping over. So now my son was to quarantine, I’m on vacation this week and will have to quarantine, and we will go for tests later this week....

So Close

The election is so close I can almost taste it! One week from tomorrow. 5 days before my birthday. The single, greatest gift I ever hope to be given. A loss for tRump. ‌ It’s true, I was a Bernie guy. But Biden will do. He has 8 years experience in the White House. He’s got some decent plans for his term. And this country won’t survive another 4 years of a reality TV show with no direction other than self-dealing and corruption....

2020 Just Keeps on Giving

So in other news besides 200,000 dead: Mason is slumping in baseball. Ford is actively dying. We’re very shorthanded at work and I’m pulling extra shifts. And now Mason will be staying with me indefinitely because Amanda’s neighbor is mentally ill and threatened to kill her, basically. Neat! Oh! And my axle boot is torn and leaking grease. Groovy! Best news I have right now is that Simon is finally going to day shift on September 14th!...

Same Ole, Same Ole

So, 51 days later and we’re still fucked. Still rocking masks, still coveting hand sanitizer, and still dying from COVID. Schools are about to open. Jesus H. Christ. Baseball is about to start back up, even as MLB shut down after 3 days. But I did score a brand new Mi Band 5 fitness tracker. Sweet. It’ll be good for the bike rides Susie and I are doing now. Scared as hell for school to start in a month!...

Bye Bye Hazard Pay!

And just like that, it’s all over. 2 weeks in and back to regular schedules at work. Haven’t seen a penny in unemployment either. I stand by my original statement that the company is run by morons. Was kind of excited to get out Sunday at noon for Memorial day, even without a cookout to go to. But, alas, it’s not meant to be. I will, however, get 4 days off this week....
