Quarantine..social distancing..whatever.

I have watched so many zombie and quarantine movies but I never thought I’d end up in one..Well at least a quarantine one. I’m just thankful we don’t have zombies. That would NOT be fun. I have been social distancing except when I have to go to the grocery store. I have a household of 8 so it’s kind of hard to not have to go shopping at least once a week. My husband is still working. He is considered “essential” because he has to work on the communications part of the infrastructure of essential businesses. He’s basically a Tech Engineer. I don’t like the fact that he has to go out,but I feel we are blessed that he still has a job. At least in his job, he doesn’t have to be around a large group of people.

I don’t think a whole lot has changed around my house. I’m an introvert and stay home a lot anyway. It’s just different when you HAVE to stay home as opposed to CHOOSING to stay home. I don’t know why everyone is calling for a lockdown on the state though. Most everything is closed. I think the only places left open are essential places like grocery stores, convenience stores, and restaurants. I guess the “lockdown” is to prevent large groups of people getting together for parties and things like that. I mean, honestly a lock down wouldn’t affect me that much.

I am glad I live in a rural area because at least I can go outside without some nosy neighbor wondering what I’m doing outside my house. My closest neighbor is at least 1/4 mile away. I haven’t been to see my parents in about 2 weeks though. My sister just had a baby and I haven’t seen her in the same amount of time. It sucks.

Also, I need to learn not to eat allll the snacks in the house. I think I’ve gained 10 lbs since all of this started. I am a stress eater and this mess has me soooo stressed out. So I’m trying to find ways to destress that don’t include food.

So how’s every one else doing with this whole “quarantine” thing? Let me know in the comments!

Wow..it’s been while

So, yeah, it’s been awhile. I have been super busy with school. I’m a business major at a university here in Mississippi and I’ve already taken all of my basics and into the actual “business” courses. It is not like community college at all. University courses are extremely complicated. But I’ve managed to keep a B average. Although, I’ll be glad if I can just pull a “C” in accounting. It’s not my best subject.

Since I’ve last posted, I’ve had a friendship dissolve. Honestly, it’s a good thing. I know I’m not perfect by any means but this former friend was just one of the most mean-spirited people I’ve ever met. We were friends for awhile and she wasn’t always like that. I’d hear her talk about people and just be down right hateful about them. Most of the time, they didn’t really deserve the things she said about them. Anyhow, long story short, I got to the point where I was thinking “I cannot be friends with someone with so much hate in their heart”. I haven’t spoken to her in around 5 months and I’m ok with that. I’ve just learned that “mean girl” mentality still indeed exists in those over 30.

Ok, now that I’ve given a little update, I hope to get back to posting giveaways and reviews. Hope you all are doing well!
