My Adventures in Spark Land...Day 2 of Wisconsin shut down is over!

Friday, March 27, 2020

"I choose to be happy"

emoticon Yesterday I went to the drug store. I went to call in for refills last week and noticed my BP meds needed to be renewed which means they want me in to check my BP. I talked to the druggest who said she would try to over ride that knowing going in just for a BP test was not the safest right now. The renewal just came for a 3 month supply. My thyroid meds need renewed in 3 weeks so I talked to the druggest yesterday. She agreed going in for a thyroid test is not the safest either so she sent in a request for a renewal yesterday!

emoticon I ate lunch and watched Robin Hood on Disney Plus from 1951. I had never seen it before. I did enjoy it. It was in colored.

emoticon My son's GF came flying in. In the past, they have came together and brought food only for themselves. I have felt like a outsider in my own house. Yesterday she brought me food also. It was nice.

emoticon She brought some stuff he had ordered on amazon that finally came. He was like a kid Christmas morning. I went with them to my parent's so he could change her oil in her car. I did notice she was very clingy to my son but like I saw at Christmas very confident and content as if she and my son were married. She seemed very confident in the world around her because she has a job when lots of people do not. She seemed clueless to how I feel about my son returning back to college and me being alone. When I spoke my fears of being alone, she said -well you can go for walks! As if a daily walk will help that lost of human contact?

emoticon I have been without cheese for several weeks. It hasn't helped my IBS however his GF got me taco bell and pizza and ice cream. I woke today with sore legs. It maybe the cheese or the grease food, etc.

That was my 2nd day of the shut down in WI. I am totally not looking forward to being alone after my son leaves. They feel as long as my son got me food, I will not leave the house and I will be OK. (well I can't eat any of it! He can have it all back! I've been on a low salt intake since I was in grade school. I have learned thanks to SP I've cut my salt more, With high BP already, it's best I keep away from those foods) The sad thing for me is how this virus is effecting everyone but my son and his 3 housemates seem clueless. They all 3 have their jobs and carry on like they are rich while people suffer around them. My son's father was in service so his schooling has been paid for by the VA. My son's father was discharged from the service for mental reasons so my son receives a check for his living every month from the VA. My son has used that money to furnished the college house they live in and he has put some away as well as the money he has earned the past 5 summers. So all 4 don't seem to worry at this point like millions Americans are. It's really sad! They don't practice social distancing and have no fear of this virus!

On to day 3 of Wisconsin shut down.

    It's good that you got your meds. It's the clueless people who refuse to practice social distancing that spread it everywhere. Last night a Sparker posted a video from a doctor on the proper way to bring groceries into the house, clean them, and put them away. He discussed the proper way a person should handle their clothing after they return from shopping.

    Have a healthy weekend. Stay safe. Be well. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I agree that many people, especially young, do not fear anything. I am sorry that he is returning to his house. At his age, we think we know what we want. He is thinking about his freedom.

    Princess it is the age old story that youth believe they are invincible ! And yes they are foolish . But no amount of words or suggestions seem to phase them at this age . I am thankful despite the fact that you are unable to eat the food that the GF included you in their food purchase . emoticon emoticon Still praying !

    Kids your son's age really are clueless, because they have this mentality of invincibility. **SIGH** BUT right now it's time to lose that!

    Ummmm . . . yes, the GF is definitely clueless about what it's like, especially in these times, to be alone. **Sigh**

    HUGS and do stay safe and well.

    Well per your moniker; CHOOSING TO BE HAPPY will help get you through this! Actually I can use a little bit of that wisdom too :-)

    I'm also afraid there's a lot more "clueless" folks out there in the population as well. So prayers and my faith in Yahweh are helping mitigate the worry of the clueless people that are roaming around the countryside here in southern WV.
