On the Run

Toilet paper.
Paper towels.
Disinfectant wipes.
Fresh chicken breasts.

There have been runs on these. We’re out of Charmin. Kirkland Signature paper towels and toilet paper have been out for the last two days. Although we have plenty of bottled water, I’m expecting a sudden run on that, and we’ll be forced to limit purchases again. The same with meat purchases.

I have a decent amount of staples at home; I managed to pick up a few things yesterday. I have no idea if I’ll have a chance to do that again. The weather may be turning bad. We’re getting a mix of snow and rain right now. I don’t know if I’ll be able to make the walk anytime soon. But Prime and I can stop for groceries after work, if needed. I should be all right.

People are in touchy moods; some are pleasant, others aren’t. The Bakery had been doing their all night bake-a-thons, trying to keep up with the demand for pumpkin pies. We’ve been selling a lot of fresh turkeys. I don’t think a lot of people in this area are going to follow our governor’s advise and limit family gatherings. So we’ll have yet another spike in Covid cases.

I’m exhausted. Mentally, physically, and emotionally, I am exhausted. I just want to go home, curl up under the blankets, and sleep. Either that, or snuggle with Lulu and play Pokémon Sword. But I don’t want to be here. I just want to be at home. It’s safer there.

If I thought my SAD was bad in previous years, it’s going to be off the charts this year. I am not looking forward to this.

Also, I’m going to need to see some terms and conditions before accepting 2021; this shit is getting out of hand.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
