Life suks in the great state of Minnesota. People suk, they are rude, they are angry, they are in a hurry, they are helpless, they are greedy and after the guv gave his update to our stay at home order it will be even more ugly. Only the restuarants that have a patio can be open and then only a few will be allowed in, with a reservation. Salons will open up June 1st with limited people, No church, no activities no nothing. I drag my butt up at 5:30 a.m., leave the house at 6:40 and start greeting the happy campers at 7. I get home about 6:30-6:45 p.m. every night. My feet hurt, my calves hurt, my hips ache and i am so beyond tired.......The grill is our friend here.
I need new shoes, a new phone, a haircut a vacation and a new tattoo! I still need a different purse but they all make me mad so have decided to venture into pursehood when i am not so "salty"!!!
Business has been so busy. We have been killing it with the sales. Since the stay at home order came into play our business has gone wild. Just the paint sales are up 73%.
I need a good day on the motorcycle with the old boy, He and the dogs are my saving grace everyday!
Other than all of the above life is great!!!
So, on the plus side, we eat every dinner as a family unit and have longer than ever conversations. I have found I love documentaries and watch them on the daily. I scared a woman I know when we were texting and she casually said "oh, documentaries. What have you seen recently?" And I launched . . . the list is long. She sent the emoji with big eyes in response. ha ha. The whole food prep thing takes up a huge portion of my house. The plotting to get meat and what to do with it, thawing things out from the stock pile, trying to make dinner tonight a little different than last night takes more time than you can imagine. I got a backgammon game and we have family euchre on a regular basis. But I feel like I want to start a new hobby. Searching for what it might be. We got an electric guitar at a penny auction. Seriously, a super nice, brand new fender guitar with amp for 3 dollars. I'm threatening to play it. We thought one of the kids would. But since they haven't touched it, I might play the electric guitar. lol Why not, right?
So far, I'm spending "shelter in place" time either doing all the traditional "woman's work" or trying to to find another job that sounds so important to my husband that I can evade the traditional woman's work for a while. My husband doesn't act like it would ever dawn on him to take any responsibility for food planning, buying, cooking and kitchen clean-up, or general household clean-up, or laundry. I don't know why this would be, when we were younger and didn't have a child, we always split the domestic crap. (It's not like he's going off to work right now, either.) But apparently the boring and tedious crap is now all mine, in his mind. Will have to disabuse him of that notion one day soon before I hit him with a frying pan.
I am not secluded. Working 11.5 hrs a day. More than 1/2 of our staff is off during this time.
I cant imagine what some of you are going thru especially with kids at home.
