Life Continues No Matter What

It has been a while since I have written in my diary. Time goes by most days seems to be getting faster on the good days and very slow on the not so good days. Today has been a reasonable day, although I have gotten a little restless around 2 PM this afternoon. I watched Diagnosis Murder from 10:30 AM to 2 PM, and then I decided to watch one hour of Magnum P. I. before I decided to go camp in my bedroom for the rest of the afternoon and evening before sundown. I have decided to take it easy and get some rest before going to bed. Writing in my diary/journal is the first time since May 4, 2020. It has been one of those months of comings and goings to the dialysis center and back home.

We are still in shutdown, shut-in mode in Rock County thanks to our Mayor. We still have closures of some restaurants, bars, and other places that do not qualify as essential. Some restaurants are open for delivery through some app or have curbside service. The number of people affected by or have died from the Coronavirus is still climbing instead of declining. Rock County is NOT ready to reopen hairstyling shops, manicure and pedicure shops, and allow non-essential employees back to work. Rock County is a sad place to be living right now. The only three things I can do right now are going to and from dialysis, ordering lunch and dinner in from essential places, and practicing social distancing. I can do also is order my groceries ahead of time and pick them up at a time that the grocery store has a time slot for me to fill. I have been socially distancing myself for the past two and a half years now, so I don’t see many people/other tenants anymore. I am not the type of person who likes to socialize like I once did a few years ago. Times have changed, and trust has been misplaced more than once. Even my social media sites have found me less sociable. Facebook has become more political these days.

I am not always in my political mind. Right now, I am feeling the pull and hatred of the Democratic party, the Republican party having their powerplays against one another. Politics has become, truthfully, a circus of some sort. I cannot turn on the news because people are upset with President Trump, Nancy Pelosi, and other governing officials. It has gotten pretty sad—it all about power and wealth in politics these days. UUGGHH

Now, I haven’t been working on this diary/journal since 3 PM. I have been doing other things that matter to me. I am just getting my thoughts to write, and that takes a little bit of time.

    It’s funny, some of the things I used to follow closely on line are just exhausting to me now. I am trying to focus on ‘analog’ living. Doing real things instead of virtual ones. I think it’s helping. Let’s hope this madness ends soon. Hug….

      Thanks for your reply, Yetzirah. I am exhausted with some of the things that air on TV now. I watch a lot of marathons, Netflix, Hulu, and Roku channel programming now. There is so much political stuff going on now that I am doing everything I can to stay sane and the Christian woman I profess to be. I focus on other things outside my computer stuff, dialysis, and writing when I have the chance. Some days I find it difficult to put down an electronic, so my cat Bing Crosby helps me with that. When he wants my attention, my phone, computer, iPad, and whatever I am doing gets put aside, and I focus on him.
