2 Months into Quarantine

I haven’t written in a month, because there hasn’t been much to write about. It’s been the same shit, different day.

I am at least working full time again, thank god. I am busy for 8 hours a day, M-F. That leaves the rest of time to try and keep busy.  I have still been walking with my neighbor, which has been helpful, and gives me something to look forward to. She is the only person I see all week.

Like a lot of people, this whole situation was starting to get to me. I wasn’t feeling myself. I was feeling very down and anxious.  I was also watching way too much news! I called my doctor and explained what was going on and he called in something for me. I have never felt this way before and I have never taken anything before.

It also was the first time I went into a store in about 6 weeks, so I was nervous to go, but I did it! I have been getting everything delivered this whole time. So I got to see how the stores are running, with all the arrows, and everyone wearing masks. of course, I wore mine as well.  I was in and out with in 5 mins.  I did not want to be there.

I was only watching 1 dog, once a week and I stopped that for now as well. I didn’t want to be responsible for someone else’s dog if I wasn’t feeling right.

I am feeling better. I have stopped watching all news entirely. I see the head lines from some news sources on my Facebook feed, which is plenty.  I watch my governor speak almost every day, to keep up on whats going on my state only. My state just went into “faze 1” and some businesses are opening up, with lots of precautions and restrictions. Some parks and beaches are opening too. I still don’t plan on changing my routine any time soon though. It’s too soon.

One good thing, is that I am not spending much money, during this crazy time, so I have been able to continue to pay down my debt. I am getting very close to paying off my credit card, which is the last piece of the puzzle!

On a lighter note, I have now been here for 3 years! Wow, where did the time go?? I still cant believe that I made such a big move by myself! I am very happy that I did. It was a good decision for sure. No regrets.

So I am hangin there the best that I can. Hope you are all doing well and staying safe!

Life, as we know it, has changed for ever.

  1. I have been followed your story and am amazed at how you pulled your self together. Your home looks like the perfect place to land.
    You are such a great resource for doggies. My friend, who lives in Fl. couldn’t find anyone to care for her dog during an emergency. Isn’t it amazing how good things happen when you take a chance?
    This virus will be contained at some point. If you and your friend have a park nearby do what my friends and I did. We three drove separately, sat six feet apart at a picnic table, and enjoyed the sunshine. We brown bagged it. It was so nice to actually see them after nearly three months apart.
    I love your photography. Mine stinks.
    Take care.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. It’s been quite a journey for sure. Now that our parks are open, I could try your idea. Thank you for reading my story as well. Writing has helped me to move forward. I’m sure your photos don’t stink, keep taking them, don’t stop. Be safe and stay well.

  2. Hi Lynne, Your Hawaiian cousin here. Glad to hear you’re doing well, RI seems to have a lot of Covid-19 cases for such a small state. Our island has 0 active cases right now but also no tourists so we’ll see what happens when they return. Lets see, in the last 5 years we’ve had a hurricane, earthquakes, a volcanic eruption and now a pandemic. I think we’re only waiting on a tsunami and locusts. Hang in there, someday we’ll all be back to normal. Glad you’re enjoying your new home, you’ve really shown the world that you know how to be successful. We’ll have to hire you to come take care of all of our animals when we can travel again. Love from both of us.

    1. Hey Jim, so nice to hear from you. Yes you sure have experienced a lot since you moved there. Crazy times we’re living in currently. You’re very fortunate to not have any cases currently. Yes, Rhode Island has had a lot of cases, but things are starting to open up slowly. It’s a scary time, but we will get through this. The new normal. I would love to come there some day. Take care and love to you both.
