April Monthly News

Welcome to the April edition of the monthly news!
So I had a cough and sore throat for a few days. I decided to do the self assessment online and check to make sure I didn't have COVID-19. I do work in a grocery store so it is possible, but it's also possible it's just a cold or flu too.
The assessment told me to call my doctor. So I did.
I am in isolation until 48 hours after I feel better.
It's a precaution more than anything because I am diabetic.
I reiterate to you all, please wash, sanitize and stay home as much as you possibly can. Help prevent the spreading!!
So after 3 weeks, and still not getting any better, my doctor had me tested for COVID. I came back negative, thank God, but have mono.
If you have ever had mono, or know someone who has, you will know that I am doing more sleeping than ever before. It sucks, but it will always be better than having the 'rona.
In good news though, we celebrated Easter.
It was weird with this social distance thing, y'know, can't eat a meal with the family like we normally would. Better safe than sorry!!
My hubby also had an uneventful birthday. 
Normally we would go to The Keg. Our spot.
This year, our steaks came through delivery from Moxie's. It was pretty good actually. I was worried how steaks would hold up on delivery but I really had nothing to worry about. They were tasty!
He enjoyed his day, got his favorite red velvet cake from Crumbled, and got his steak dinner. All was well.
Have you had to celebrate a special day in isolation? Tell me about it.
What else are you doing to pass the isolation time?
I've been reading a lot more, which makes me happy.

  3. I'm so glad you enjoyed When Dimple Met Rishi. It's one of my favorite rom-coms. I hope you feel better soon. Being sick during this time is so anxiety-inducing. I hope you have a safe May <3

  5. I'm sorry to hear you got sick but super glad it wasn't Covid! Hope you're feeling better now.
    I've been seeing a lot of great feedback on The Wives but I'm not sure it'd be for me... I'm tempted though just to see what the collective fuss is about. :)

    1. Thank you, I totally am.
      As for The Wives, I read the synopsis and was like not a chance. I tell you though, it was epic!!!!! The twistedness of it was so compelling. I urge you to read it, but remember to keep going past the uncomfortable stuff.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
