New? Exciting? I ventured out of my house yesterday! I made it to a real live workout instead of livestreaming, and it was the most excitement I've had in months. I might sound sarcastic, but I pretty much wanted to cry out of happiness.
I got my eyebrows and lashes fixed up last week and I feel like a new person.
And I have a shipment of wine arriving later this week, so I should be pretty set on new and exciting around here.
But for real - I'm still working from home, our state is slowly starting to reopen, so at some point I'm going to have to return to the office. I'm waiting for that start date and not looking forward to wearing makeup and real pants again.
We're healthy, but tired of staying in. I'm still looking for a "very distanced" Airbnb so we can at least get away for a weekend, but I'm not wanting to be around people. I miss my friends, but still - too peopley out there!
I'm so all over the place. One day I'm cool and the next I'm feeling like the walls are closing in. My company is significantly impacted by everything shutting down, so now we're even further in debt. They're currently looking at mandatory furloughs but calling them Furlough Fridays, cuz that makes it fun (*groan*). I'm tired of being home, but equally grateful that I can work from home. I'm desperate for a vacation and fun and feeling carefree for a hot second.
Welp, I'm a lot less fine than I was this morning. The whole company got a video message from our CEO announcing furloughs with no prior hints to management. Which means my employees watched that video before I did (because I was on a call) and had a million urgent questions that I cannot answer. Today is now a shit sandwich.
So yeah. Now I'm going to have a minimum of 2 weeks unpaid. Guess I'm going to learn how to file for UC!
Things are okay here. I got a surprise poem in the mail from a friend as a sympathy thing. It was very sweet. Funnily enough, it arrived the same day as two boxes of things from my grandmother's house. So I cried a little bit last night, but I think that was good. Got to see my parents for my dad's birthday on Sunday, which was really nice. There been some weirdness at work, but overall the work itself has been good, thankfully.
Oh man chalupa, that blows. I'm sorry to hear that.
Monday and Tuesday are my "weekend". I spent all day yesterday being a sloth on the couch and enjoyed every minute of it. I planned on being very productive today. Well it started out great but went downhill when I was unloading two 35 pound buckets of kitty litter out of my trunk. The neighbor startled me and I kind of turned as I was lifting and tweaked something in my back. So now my productive day has turned into nursing a sore back. getting old sucks.
