Today had a few perplexing moments. It started with the mailbox. Don and I were headed off to our cabin for a 2 night escape. We stopped at the mailbox on the way out of town.
I jumped from the car, with my letter and a Kleenex for grabbing the handle. Then I jumped back and stared and laughed and shook my head. What is the meaning of this? Why are there 6 little cars on the box? Usually I like cute surprises, but everyone is on edge during this election. Don't mess with my mailbox... my mailbox that is already creepy looking. This was perplexing.
We pulled onto 1-10 and started seeing signs, related to the hurricane in Louisiana. Is there no end to the worries these days?
The hurricane is headed for Lake Charles. I'm perplexed that a hurricane can occur again so soon. They haven't recovered from Beta. Sad to imagine evacuees, during a pandemic.
When we got to the cabin, it felt safe and quiet and isolated. Just the way I like it to be. Then we decided to go pick up some local barbecue.
Don and I put on masks and went in together to decide. Yikes! There were 4 other customers and 3 workers behind the counter. The customers all wore masks and the initially, all the workers had their masks pulled beneath their chins.
Did we walk out? No. Did we ask them to pull up their masks? No? Did we buy bbq? Yes, we bought BBQ to reheat later. In the car, we fumed and growled, the whole way to the cabin.
In the evening, I made Don play this calming game with me. I love these Ouisi cards!
I needed to look at pretty images and think creative thoughts about them. I needed to give myself a break, since I'd been beating myself up over not speaking up at the bbq place.
It's perplexing that people are still not getting it with masks. I need to stop being surprised by this. I need to just come up with my plan, so I know how to react next time.
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
