Quarantine and essential workers

Since I work for a food company, which I do not name on my blog, I am deemed an essential worker. I have been working more than 40 hour weeks for so long, I’m burning out. But, I still have an income, so there is that.

On the other hand, hubby had a quit or be fired conversation at his employer about 3 weeks before everything started shutting down. His doctor was making changes to his diabetes medication, so he missed a lot of work due to catching everything going around because his blood sugar was messed up.

We have needed to fix the roof of the house, so with our tax return, we started on that this weekend. We found a lot of problems, so it’s a good thing we did start on it. The goal is to fix it so we can consolidate into a home loan so we can finish everything else that needs done – like finishing the 2nd bathroom, swapping the tub in the main bathroom for a walk in shower and finishing the front room. I also want new kitchen cabinets and maybe even a dishwasher and a pantry. I’ve got big dreams lol

In the meantime, I’m still working on my depression and the anxiety that got added to the mix in the last couple of years. I do what I can where I can, and just keep starting where I am.

At least with the overtime, I’m paying all my bills with just a little juggling (and a little scrimping). I’m thinking the more we get done on the house, maybe I can start with my writing again. I miss it. I also need to work on my crochet more. I have some plans for decorating my office at work.

Oh, that’s a new thing as well. I’ll be moving into my own office in the next few weeks. It’ll seem weird since I’ve been in a cubicle for what seems like forever. I am bringing a bookcase for some things and figure it’s as good a place as any to put my crochet amirugami that I want to start making. I found a cow and a gnome and a couple of other things.

Anyway, time to start dinner. Chicken alfredo and garlic parmesan biscuits. I might look at doing poppers too, just because I’ve been wanting some lately. I should have the stuff for them.

Lateness and g’nite
