The weekend was mostly good.
We decided to go Sunday morning to celebrate Turbo’s birthday. We originally planned on Tuesday for his actual birthday, but it’s supposed to rain pretty heavy. Since Amazon wasn’t able to deliver Turbo’s gift on time, we headed out first thing Saturday morning to Target and got him a small Mickey Mouse three-wheeler. He really loved it, along with a little car and a stuffed turtle. After we left, Special K sent us a picture of Turbo napping with his new turtle I also took out some mini cupcakes. I want to say a huge Thank You to Special K for always letting me have my Grandma moments. She just asked if I could make a small cupcake, which made me remember I had a mini cupcake pan. The mini-size is much better suited to a toddler, and he still ate a full lunch an hour after his little cupcake.
If we do a bigger birthday celebration in April for several family birthdays including Turbo’s, then I’ll dust off my decorating skills on a special cake.
So that was the best part of the weekend.
The worst is seeing the darker side of people during Covid-19. Crazy. And I’m someone who took this virus seriously back in early January because I’m medically curious by nature and it caught my interest. So I had a pretty good understanding of why this virus could (not necessarily would) become a pandemic and cause serious issues. But hoarding TP, hand sanitizer and various other items isn’t a rational response and creates major supply chain problems for those who need it, as well as triggering more panic-buying. Fights broke out in stores of products like a bad reality show. Our Costco had a line wrapped around the entire building and had some issue that required a 911 response. I only know that all happened because Wizard went to the bank located in the same area and saw it. We weren’t crazy enough to go to Costco this weekend
Anyhow, after much discussion, Wizard and I decided to stop going to the gym for a while. We should have done that last week, but honestly, we go early in the morning when it’s theoretically cleaner and less crowded, so we didn’t think much about it. But when I was there Friday, the lightbulb went on. There are so many people who wrongly and foolishly believe that if they go to the gym while coming down with an illness, they can sweat it out. And those places our petri dishes for bacteria and viruses. We are not just concerned for ourselves, we also have a very sick relative, Wizard’s mother in deep in her 80’s and has lifelong asthma, and one of our neighbor’s is seriously ill–we don’t want to inadvertently spread the virus to them. And of course, we want to protect Turbo, who is barely 2 years old. Health and fitness goals are great, but they aren’t worth getting ourselves or anyone else sick. I’ll do my home exercises and walk Maggie.
The upside is I should have time to write!
So how was your weekend?
