My days have pretty much consisted of a whole lot of reading, couching, sleeping, sitting outside at sunset, watching news clips on YouTube, and running interference between Ficus and Strawberry, and Strawberry and Kiwi. Tonight we took the dog for a walk through the neighborhood, but we are really doing our best to limit our interactions with the world, so I'm sorry I don't really have anything exciting to report. Besides hanging out in the speakeasy last night, things are pretty chill around here. COVID-19 is really no joke. There are only 31 staffed ICU beds available in our entire county and the stories of people dying are heartbreaking. I can't get the imagery out of my head of a nurse who said her whole ward is COVID patients who all look like they're drowning because they can't breathe. That's why it continues to be so infuriating to see businesses flouting the rules and fighting closures. We have to get these numbers down. Stay safe out there. Tomorrow should be more insanity as Congress attempts to move forward with impeachment. Can't hardly wait.
