CoViD-19: Staying Home | The Scarlet 'C' | Megan Thee Stallion Is A Goddess | Pandemic Staycation Mentality |

Megan Thee Stallion at Dia De Los Deftones Taken 11.2.2019

I never expected to be obsessed with Megan Thee Stallion, but I guess the pandemic has us all doing things we never expected. She was on Colbert and Corden last week and now Darren has been doing her "Body" dance and it is endlessly entertaining. It's funny because it was just over a year ago that she performed at Dia De Los Deftones and I didn't really get her whole vibe, but I'm feeling it now. 
Our staycation/nesting has continued. Last night I put Christmas decorations on the catio/balcony, enjoyed some spiked egg nog, and watched Bad Moms Christmas. 
Today Darren walked to Pancho Villa and loaded us up on Mexican delights. The fridge is now stocked with salsa and tortillas and ceviche, then he made a full Mexican feast with carne asada tacos, Spanish rice, and beans. Now we're cozied up watching more episodes of The Wilds with the kid and I'll probably go back outside tonight to watch Geminids. I kinda wanted to go to the coast tonight for the king tides but it's too easy to just stay home forever and see it as a staycation. This pandemic has really shown the great divide of the haves and have-nots, and for sure there are people faring better than others, but I'm coming to realize we can't beat ourselves up with guilt over what we do have. Give if you can, spend if you can, donate if you can, support small businesses if you can, and be grateful for what you have, but we all have to cut ourselves a break and let go of the guilt about it. I hope your staycations are going well, too.
