If it's raining next weekend when my mother and her husband are in town I don't know what to do. I refuse to be inside anywhere with them, even masked, as they will just be coming off a 4000 person 7 day cruise. I don't want to be on a patio with them either, that's too close. I don't even particularly want to see them, I just feel obligated to. Ugh.
health (system more than personal)
Sigh. Canceled my physical therapy appointment after reading more about how my new health insurance actually works. I need to find a different plan. Again. I'm not sure I have many other options though, insurers keep dropping out of the private market. Oh I hate it here.
I'm sure he'll be kind enough to grab me a few cases at a grocery store but I was really excited to see (vicariously) what's in the factory store.
I'd like one full pallet of Ale 8 Zero with misprinted labels please.
OMG I just pulled a live honeybee out of my dog's (very long) hair, thinking it was a bit of plant. As in, the bee was literally squirming in my bare fingers.
Thankful that honeybees are docile lil dudes and I was being gentle, so nobody was injured. Whew.
That is one complication of having a long-haired dog that I would have NEVER anticipated.
Caffeine time. Cat food time.
Also spouse leaves on Monday for a trip of unknown duration. More than two weeks, but probably not more than three weeks. It feels like he just got back from the last trip! Even though that was like 6 weeks ago somehow.
I'm finally, after something like three years, starting to just barely feel like I have a rudimentary grasp of the Japanese language.
Which of course means that my brain has been shouting at me to back burner it and begin learning Chinese instead.
I think I'd have already given in if I could decide between Cantonese and Mandarin. I'd learn Taishanese (a separate dialect of Yue Cantonese) if I didn't care about it being useful for traveling some day. I dream of travel. Mandarin, then, probably?
Nice! We're 9+ days out from the end of the rally and zero reported cases of anything. Success! The club did a good job of making sure most events were in well ventilated spaces, encouraged testing, did as much as is reasonable in the current climate.
I don't think I'll be attending any more events this year, but I'm glad that one went off w/o incident. Well, without infectious incident. Two people did go to the hospital, but they're both ok. One needed ankle surgery, oops. Wear riding boots!
