Let's beat this dead horse a bit more, shall we?



The search for food has now become an amusing obsession. Delivery from approximately 10 stores in a 20 mile radius has no delivery times available until April 1st. How one could put together a shopping list is problematical because everything is out of stock. Interesting - Can I get nothing delivered on April 1st, please?

I shop primarily at Harris Teeter and they have instituted 'Seniors Only" shopping hours. 6-8am on Monday and Thursday, the thing is the store doesn't open until 7am but hey...They also have Senior Pick-Up times available if you order on-line but that requires personal shoppers and there are no available slots for the next week and a half.

You really have to laugh at this stuff. No, really you do because what other choice do you have?

I was up at 3:30am today - don't know why, just woke up and there I was. Until I got the newspaper it never crossed my mind that life was any different than usual, it took the headlines to remind me that everybody's new normal is my same old-same old.

According to reports people are watching more tv these days, contrary person that I am, I am watching less, okay, make that none! Since I discovered 2 weeks ago that the pain in my hip seemed to originate from sitting on what passes for a sofa in our house, I haven't sat on the damn thing. The only time I ever sat on it was in the evening to keep my husband company watching stupid tv. Now that I don't do that the only place for me to watch tv is on my computer sitting at my desk, which quite frankly is quite comfortable. The thing is, I spend all day at my desk and computer, come evening I've had it.

I suppose eventually I will get around to watching the season finale of 'This Is Us", and clean out (delete) anything on the DVR. I keep putting things on the watch list for the numerous streaming apps we have but I'm thinking I'll be dead before I ever watch them - even if I live to be 100. In the meantime I am enjoying NOT being in pain and being able to walk reasonably well. There's an upside to everything!

Today is going to be the last nice day for awhile, 2 nice days in a row and then blammy - back to chilly, overcast and possibly rainy (the rains came and never left).  Perhaps I will take my pain-free hip and newly rejuvenated walking ability out for a trial run and amble up to the little grocery store on Glebe, how much you wanna bet their shelves are just chock-a-block with goodies? Not exactly the ones I'm wanting but I bet I can get eggs and milk. I don't need eggs and milk at the moment but I bet I can get them!

Oh - when I was checking the Harris Teeter website, their already outrageous prices seem to have gone up ($7.99 for a dozen eggs!) -the seltzer my husband drinks went from $5.69 to $8 something for the 12 can pack -  price gouging anyone?

Oh it's a wonderful life!
