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.

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding.

As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all. Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
