Supply run adventure

Yesterday reminded me mildly of what a standard, routine day used to be like.

I was busy. All day long.

Reason being, I went on a supply run.

Supply run fashion statement.

The day the ceiling tried to crush me

Disclaimer: This post deteriorates from anecdotal to ranty. Sorry not sorry.

When I was 18 my dentist said I needed to have my wisdom teeth pulled.

So I went and the orthodontist pulled them.

He sent me home with a script for codeine, and my mom tucked me into bed to sleep it off.

When I woke up, I felt a momentary flash of panic.

More creativity out of my pandemic kitchen

So we’re keeping sane being under house arrest. Mostly by doing creative things. Like cooking. And art. And perfecting the art of Call of Duty gaming. (I don’t know…ask a teenager.)

A2: Teenagers. They’re a hungry bunch. Bored teenagers are even hungrier. (And we’re only on day 3 of the social isolation…)

The worst part was my kids were watching.

Ugh.

In my defense, I had good reasons.

Diversions, distractions…the new normal has begun

Alright, it appears many people will be staying home either for precautionary or enforced reasons. Which means, the internet will be booming.

Right?

We need our daily fix, our online entertainment, especially now. I don’t know how long people can binge-watch over a period of two, three or more weeks, especially with the weather finally changing a little, for the better (at least here in Toronto).

I hope wifi becomes an essential service… 😀

I for one prefer reading (and writing) to watching shows. But I suspect I will be watching some shows, just for a change of pace…

Here’s the latest recap from Toronto:
