Life During Pandemic


It has been a crazy week for my family. Last Friday (I think) my son’s significant other notified me that she and her family, and my son had been exposed to COVID. It turns out she tested positive and then became very ill. But even though it was scary, I think her health has kept her less sick than she could have been. Even so she and I have spent a lot of time on messenger chatting. Me trying to keep her a bit distracted from how scared she was, and she trying to help me not be so scared for her and my son. I think that is why I have been less able to blog, or think of anything but this situation.

By the way, my son tested negative, yet he is coughing as of today. Again, he’s pretty healthy so I’m not very worried. My third son had it quite a while ago and is out having fun now. He and his crew got their shots so they can play at the beach with masks on.

I’m saying all this just to point out that the numbers we see on the news we need to multiply all family and friend lists to get to the why the angst of this last couple years has climbed to an all time high. The silver lining is all of us getting to know each other better. And for me it has pushed me to get healthier so I can withstand it all.

I have no doubt that many who will read this have their own stories to tell about how this pandemic is touching them personally. Let me quickly send out a hug to all of you and wish you the solidarity of love and health to get through it all.

Just Jot It January–Gurgle


Not my son, a Pixabay.com baby.

When he was a baby, he could charm me with his gurgle.

He would play with my hair making strands into little characters talking to each other.

Gorgeous and loving,

LOTS of energy.

He loved to throw things into the toilet and watch his dad, and I take the throne apart and find the item.

He sang with me a lot. Learned to love the Beatles.

Now he plays in a band for fun

And should you hear a gurgle in your pipes, he’ll be there to fix the problem.

I don’t know why gurgle made me think of my #3 son. But it did.

Yet another type of gurgle had me thinking of my #2 son. He’s always been strong and healthy. But his doctor told him his cholesterol was high. Yeah, genetic. (Mine) He’s a skinny guy, yet he’s on an Intermittent Fasting diet. I’ve decided to give it a try, gradually and trying to make it a lifestyle rather than a diet. And now my tummy is gurgling from the salad of spinach.

By the way, both sons have made albums—very different kinds of music, and way different than what I like. Still, I am proud that they are following their passions and finding their way. All three of my sons and my daughter are gorgeous. Genetics. Just not mine.

Another gurgle came from the couch. Two ears shot up. Now Kali is running around telling me to take her outside. So see ya tomorrow!

The real Kali, not Pixabay.

Here are the JusJoJan Rules:

1. Just Jot It January starts January 1st, but it’s never too late to join in! Here, we run on the honour system; the “jot it” part of JusJoJan means that anything you jot down, anywhere (it doesn’t have to be a post, it can even be a grocery list), counts as a “jot.” If it makes it to your blog that day, great! If it waits a week to get from a sticky note to your screen, no problem!

2. I’ll post prompts at 2am my time (GMT -5). The prompt will be the word in quotation marks in the title of my 2am post. You don’t have to follow the prompt every day, but that will be where you leave your link for others to see. You’ll get a prompt for every day except Wednesday, when the prompt is simply my One-Liner Wednesday and on Saturday, when your prompt will be the Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS, which will appear at about 9:30am Friday. Each prompt post will include the rules.

3. Please ping back or link to the daily prompt. To ping back, just copy the URL from the daily prompt post, and paste it anywhere in your post. Check to make sure your link shows up where you want it to, and go back occasionally to see other bloggers’ entries – the more you visit others, the more they’ll visit you! Note: A) The newest pingbacks will be at the top of the comments section. B) Ping backs only work if you’re blogging on WordPress. Everyone else must paste a link manually.

4. Tag your post JusJoJan and/or #JusJoJan.

5. Write anything! Any length will do! It can even be a photo or a drawing – you’re going to title it, right? There’s your jot!

6. If your post is NSFW, do not ping back. Please leave your link in the comments with a warning.

7. If you’d like to, use the JusJoJan badge so that others can find your post more easily.

8. Have fun!
