|So, I've been MIA for a few weeks now, but it feels like a year almost, and I need to vent. |
While most of the world has been quarantined to their homes, our state is one of the few that hasn't done a complete shut down, which means you're still free to roam around and go out. This wouldn't really affect me since I'm a homebody and with a little child at home, but even though I quit my job a year ago, I'm back at work. With my in-laws, because they can't keep up with work. I'm telling you, it's the end of the world! The cooler is packed with beef and hogs for processing and we can't keep the butcher shop stocked up enough because of the high demand. So here I am, jumping in, rather unwillingly, to help out, driving an hour each way to work just to please the stupid masses.
I swear, I've witnessed idiocy at its best. Gloves are useless, people. Wearing them to protect yourself but touching everything like everyone else, you'll eventually take them off at home and touch the same things with your bare hands.Sanitizing gloves during this entire process is laughable. Masks? Yes. Wear those, but the only way to protect yourself and those around you is to stay home! Just stay home! No, you don't need that PlayStation game right now. One person, one cart, essentials only.
I went shopping yesterday, because my little one needs food and I'm amazed at the amount of people roaming around for sheer enjoyment. Go home! Stop touching everything. Wash your hands! Ugh. I and many others put ourselves in harms way for idiots like that.
To top it off, my laptop quit on me. My PC seems to be on its last breath as well for some reason. I'm not in a situation to buy either one at the moment. I work for food, rather than a paycheck. Makes more sense at this point.
Good news? Daisy is getting her teeth in! Seven that I've seen so far, but she's torturing me with not sleeping at night because of that. She's happily bouncing her butt around the living room floor, refusing to crawl so she rolls around until she gets to what she wants.
The other positive thing? The earth is healing! Can you see it? Feel it? But once all this is over, people will just go back to their old ways and it'll be like nothing ever happened. The ignorance in people is amazing.
Well, I've gotta bounce. It took half an hour to write this on my dying PC and it's time to get ready for work. I miss you guys. Be safe!
