Sorry for not getting this up earlier, I have an awful lot going on here for someone who never leaves her house. My pre-pandemic hermit life was a whole lot easier than this one. I didn’t expect it to change that much. But it did. Currently, my elderly dog is needy of attention and I am trying to give it to him and get my past few days of narcolepsy under control at the same time. Also, today, someone whacked my mailbox over again. Kids today like to slap stuff. There is a sign outside my house that alerts drivers to the school ahead. Of the forty or so walkers who go back and forth on the sidewalk outside my house, 99% of the boys slap it, as do many of the girls. It never bothered me until COVID. It’s got to be the germiest sign ever! Elementary kids are giant petri dishs. And nose pickers. It doesn’t take much to knock my mailbox over. That was the point of the sign story. I think someone just slapped it.
In other news, there is a plague on my house. Every week there are new random bugs in here even thought the door is never opened for any longer than it takes to let the boy in and out. It takes him a bit longer these days, but still. First it was those blind flying things with multiple sets of wings. Next it was very tiny bugs, they hop really high for their size and make a loud pop sound when they hop. They are so tiny I have to wear my reading glasses to find them. So, both of those plagues stopped and then last night there were plain old regular flies in my windows. It’s like they all hatched in here somewhere. They all seem to be trying to get out but even when I open the windows in the July Georgia heat, they don’t want to go. They also just happily walk right across fly traps.
But today, was a better day, I was able to chase most of the flies out of the windows. Banjo had a good day. I was more productive than usual with household chores. And it didn’t rain! So um, YAY?
I know a lot of you have way more serious things going on in your lives. And hopefully some of you are enjoying your weekend. So let me know how it’s going!
