Well, duh! – This past week we had settlement on the new house. For the meeting I put on make-up. It would make me feel pretty! I haven’t used it during the pandemic. I forgot why. Not only can’t you see it because of the mask but it gets all over the inside of your mask. Back to the no make-up look for the duration of mask wearing.
Stress levels – I have had the inner squirrel thing going on for a while now but I knew that the beloved husband was feeling the stress when he recorded some Hallmark movies. We watched the first one. By “we,” I mean “I.” He fell asleep within 15 minutes.
Talking about TV – I love the NCIS franchise shows. All of them. With all that’s going on, by the end of the day I don’t want to see any violence. Mindless sitcoms are what I can handle and there aren’t enough. The New Orleans and Los Angeles NCIS versions are too violent for me these days.
He doesn’t get it – The beloved husband is perplexed that I don’t like to watch violence but I’m intrigued by murder. I loved Perry Mason because you didn’t see the actual killing. He gets grossed out by seeing decaying flesh on the old series “Bones” yet that doesn’t bother me. I just don’t want to watch it happen preferring to figure out what happened afterward. More cerebral, less physical.
And it gets closer – This past week I’ve been getting my mocha at a different Starbucks that’s farther from home. My usual one has been wonky. Sometimes closed or with shortened odd hours. Today I thought I’d try the old one and I saw someone I knew. An employee tested positive so some employees had to go into quarantine and they had to “deep clean” the place. With luck, everything will be back to normal next week. Except that this isn’t a year of normal.
So how was your week?
