I've finally decided to take a mental break

Last edited Sun Mar 29, 2020, 09:59 AM - Edit history (1)

I’m going offline today. Been following multiple trackers and graphs and here and twitter and who knows where else. Twitler’s sociopathic comments last night did me in.

Have a little fridge full of beers and a couple boxes of Cheez-Its

I feel guilty, too, that I can do this while so many struggle and even fight for their life or to save a life.

See y’all soon. Cheers

I have returned to a bad habit I thought I had conquered, clenching my teeth until they hurt. I also do it in my sleep so now my inner cheeks are more like hamburger.

I can't drink alcoholic beverages but there's a whole mountain range and a big river nearby, I think Ill go have some of that before it's gone too.

they are about testing yourself and only using exactly what chems your pool needs, the key being the interactions of chlorine and stabilizer.

I deleted the tweet later yesterday

I felt it was bragging or something.

Still felt guilty throughout the day thinking, this is all I need to do?

I highly recommend everyone take some time off

Disconnect. Unwind. Clear the mind.

I just moved from Fort Lauderdale to North Port in Sarasota County. Got a great house for a good price and excellent APR. I'm never gonna move again.

So i called and asked if we could do some social distancing in their front yard. OMG! They had a mini bar set up, lawn chairs and a heating pad! for this cold natured old woman. 4 hours later (+ 2 rum & cokes) I was all caught up on their news and mine.

I'm sure the neighborhood thought we were crazy, but we had a good time and I felt 100% better.
