Screw you Facebook!

.

Like it isn’t bad enough we haven’t travelled anywhere since Christmas 2019.

As if I don’t miss the annual large trip and three smaller vacations we used to take every year.

Because Covid hasn’t made life as sedentary and boring as possible? Facebook has to twist the knife in a little deeper with their constant “memories” feature.

On this day three years ago you were happy!

.

.

On this day three years ago you were exploring Sedona Arizona!

.

.

On this day three years ago you had no idea life would soon come to a screeching halt!

.

.

So cut it out Facebook!

I don’t need to be reminded how much I loved traveling… I realize it every time we treat walking over to the man cave/Barn Mahal like a weekend getaway.

.

.

I totally saw a yacht at sea.

How pathetic is that?

.

Pandemic humor… the wine edition.

.

Because we could all do with a little more wine right about now.

.

.

Testing.

It’s so important.

.

.

To be honest, I currently have 18 rolls of toilet paper in my closet.

My ancestors might have used the Sears catalog in the outhouse but I don’t want to. Especially since it’s online these days.

.

.

A mask no one will refuse to wear!

.

.

It’s all about safety.

,

.

I miss hopping from winery to winery for tastings, but this could work.

.

Out with the old, in with the … old as well.

.

The husband came home with his old as f*cking dirt new truck last week.

.

.

“New” truck.

.

.

Old truck.

Do you see a vast improvement? Because I don’t.

.

.

Old truck.

.

.

Smiling husband in his 28 year old “new” truck.

This might not bother me so much if it wasn’t for the fact that used car and truck prices are certifiably insane right now and he paid twice what it should be worth.

Thanks again Covid. You suck.

☹️

.

Pandemic humor.

.

Because I’m still trying to laugh.

.

.

Ain’t that the truth! I’ve cooked and baked more in the past two years than I have in the last 20. Which sadly, my hips and thighs can attest to.

.

.

I need one of those.

.

.

This is funny, but not. Our neighbor is a nurse and has been past the point of burnout for a solid year.

.

.

I really hope not, but you can’t argue with the logic.

.

A time for reflection.

.

The end of another dreadful,WTF year is approaching and it’s time to look back.

Not on anything serious mind you, but rather….

This:

.

.

What the inside of our storage barn looked like then…

.

.

And what it looks like now.

Before…

.

.

And after two years of nothing to do but stay home and try to avoid the global plague.

.

.

While I’m the first to admit 2020 and 2021 have sucked the big root, they did afford us the time and energy (not to mention the tens of thousands of dollars we saved on travel) to transform our packed with useless crap storage space….

.

.

Into the Barn Mahal/Man Cave Extraordinaire you see today.

.

.

We won’t mention the fact that all the husband’s “treasure” has simply migrated upstairs and forms the same giant pile of crap, just on a higher level.

No.

.

.

We shall instead marvel at the transformation..

.

.

And pour ourselves a drink.

.

.

Cheers!

.

At this point I shouldn’t even be surprised.

.

Covid.

It’s ruined so many things, not to mention lives.

Every time we make a plan, the virus rears its ugly head like a demonic Jack in the Box and shrieks, I don’t think so!

.

.

Our Christmas gatherings were cancelled last year and I was okay with that. But this time around we’re fully vaccinated and boosted and were looking forward to a get together/dinner/celebration with family and friends. A hesitant return to normalcy…

I should have known that was too good to be true.

.

.

I’d made Sangria. And had gathered all the fixings for crabmeat toastie appetizers and my special Cappuccino Mousse Trifle dessert… but now, it looks like that will be Christmas dinner for two because the host of the gathering called late last night to cancel. Her (unvaccinated) visiting daughter in law brought the gift of Covid (worst houseguest ever!) so now they’re all quarantining.

First our Thanksgiving plans was cancelled due to an outbreak, now Christmas.

This is seriously getting old.

😡
