So, I've been MIA for a few weeks now, but it feels like a year almost, and I need to vent. *Angry*

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. *Sob* My PC seems to be on its last breath as well for some reason. *Facepalm* 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! *Happycry* 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. *Heart* Be safe!
It's completely different here in England, even if you wanted to go anywhere for sheer enjoyment there is nowhere to go, because everything is shut. At the supermarket you have to queue 2 meters apart to get in, and only so many people allowed in the shop at a time. 2 adults are not even allowed to go shopping together.

I have heard about how the climate is improving already, now we are not flying and driving. I also think there is so much less wastage now because we are at home all day preparing our own food, no need for takeaway sandwiches and coffees on the go etc. There is a town in North Wales where the mountain goats have come down the mountain and taken over the town, they are eating everyone's hedges ha.

I have a conspiracy theory that maybe the whole thing has been engineered to try and slow down climate change.....

My little niece does the same as your daughter, she shuffles along on her bum, and she isn't crawling yet despite being 10 months. My sister I think is a bit worried but she can stand up by herself. Her Dad also reads her childrens books on quantum physics so, you know, you can't be good at everything lol.


You're back at the butcher shop? *Shock2* Totally didn't see that coming.

People actually take their gloves off when they get home over there? Hell, in NY apparently it's ok to just throw them in the street.

Get some rest and stay safe...we miss you too.

I promise I’ll try to pop in again soon. I’ve got a newsletter waiting to be written and I seriously need to avoid writing about this insanity. I’ll also post some baby pictures as well. *Bigsmile*

You know, the conspiracy theorist in me believes the same but I don’t think this will be enough.

And yes, I’m back at it again. *Rolling* I swear that butcher shop has my name carved into it. My mother in law loves having me back even though I said I’ll fire all the butchers.
To the ones participating in the Wonderland Challenge, "One step closer to white/red queen/king". I'm almost there.
Welcome! And So Sorry to say you are CAPTURED! I am "one step closer to White/Red Queen/King in the Wonderland Challenge". I pray you are healthy and well during the battle we all are waging. Now you are to stay in your castle until the siege is announced over.

That is all. Queen Norma has spoken. Carry on.

"Où est ma chatte?" ("Where is my cat?") from "Wonderland is not working for me. At all! I'm thinking way outside the box. Like, I want to write the whole story in two languages, complicated. *FacePalm*
Actually, I remembered now that I wrote some poetry, using my native language here on WdC, but it didn't look quite good. My mind was constantly switching to English words and phrases and, as it always happens with languages and translations, you're never able to express words in the exact same meaning in two different languages and have it all grammatically and emotionally correct.
Gaby  
I mean, there aren't any specifications, but who'll understand it? *Laugh*
Keep it simple, just have misunderstandings in communications.
Gaby  
So... I just realized, WdC is going to be 20 years old this year! *Shock2* That's a good number. Not legal to drink or smoke yet but close enough. It calls for a huuuge celebration! Not the drinking and smoking part. I meant the age.

What to do to make it a big bang...? *Think*
But completely legal in the UK @ Gaby - maybe WDC should think of emigrating....*Smirk*
That's a lot. 20 yrs, that is. It is a long time.
Gaby  
It is a long time!

Zombiefish, if I were underage I'd want to move back to Europe for that reason among many others. *Laugh* WdC can stay where it is. *Rolling*
Gaby  
If I had a middle name it should have been Running Late. Because I'm always running late! Isn't it already the 2nd and here I am, trying to figure out what I need to catch up with... *Think*

That's what happens when my kid decides to pull an all-nighter. *FacePalm* I have noooooo idea where she gets it from. *Whistle*

Okay, gotta go!
Oh yes, the all nighters to accomplish things! I know that way of being quite well, you got this Gaby! *Heart*
Gaby  
An eight month old should not have all-nighters! *Rolling* However, since it's my kid, anything is possible I guess.
My niece is 8 months old and doesn't like sleeping either! *Shock*


14 years with WDC! WOW!
