Random Thoughts Tuesday: 2020 is almost over!

Stacy Uncorked

I’ve known Stacy, from Stacy Uncorked for several years. We originally met through the blogging world, then ended up living near each other, and becoming friends IRL. She’s hilarious, and MAKES HER OWN WINE! You should absolutely follow her. She hosts this wonderful thing called Random Thoughts Tuesday, where you can ramble about all sorts of things and no one thinks you’re (totally) crazy. You know, all those shower thoughts you don’t share, random tidbits of info you can never work in to a conversation, or musings you’d like to chat about, but aren’t enough to make a full blog post. It’s really cathartic, and I highly recommend you participate, if you blog. It’s like a brain dump!

So, let’s get on with the dumping random.

-It’s the last Tuesday of 2020! This crazy, awful, weird year is almost over! I remember last December how excited everyone was for the “Roaring 20s.” Ah, what optimistic fools we were.

-COVID-19 side effects SUCK. Despite being very careful, my teen (I don’t have his permission to use his real name yet) and I are just getting over active COVID, but the linger side effects are the WORST. Some days I feel fine, but then I’ll have a day where I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck. The randomness of it makes it worse, because I never know when it’s going to happen. I also tire quickly, even doing the slightest thing. Teen occasionally gets out of breath just walking up the stair! I know some people who have these side effects MONTHS after getting over active COVID. That’s no way to live.

-My younger son had COVID back in Jan, before we even knew what it was. They tested him for everything, and couldn’t figure it out. He was sick for weeks and weeks and it was a very scary time. He eventually got over it, but still has days where he tires quickly. Now we know why.

-We found out he’d had it months later when a blood draw showed the antibodies. How did he get it? Probably from a kid at school whose parents had just come home from some deployment or TDY (temporary duty) in Korea. Maybe.

-The governor of Maryland, Larry Hogan, is in a series of commercials that all end with him saying: “Wear the damn mask.” They make me giggle for some reason.

-Do you watch The Mandalorian? If not, WHY NOT? IT’S AMAZING.

This is the best thing ever! Seriously, watch The Mandalorian!

-I really want to try aerial yoga, but I’m fairly certain I’d manage to fall off and make a fool out of myself. That or get tangled in the fabric and have to be cut out or something.

-I took our tree down early, to make room for packing boxes and it makes me sad. I love Christmas trees!

-I started working on my 2021 journal/planner. It’s always exciting to start a new year. I have such great intentions, and while I always finish the year, it never goes the way I intend. Stupid, non-predictable world. Why can’t things just go the way I plan?

If I had a doctorate, I’d have it embroidered on all my clothes and tattooed in multiple places in my body. Just saying.
I long to be a morning person, I really do, but no matter how hard I try, I just can’t make it happen. How do people do it?

Okay, that’s enough for today, I guess. I mean, I have more to say, but I really have to get packing.

  1. Hi!

    I’ve been Stacy’s friend for a decade but we have never met! Before I quit dinking she mailed me her wine though, I loved it! She’s amazing and I’m jealous that you lived near her. I’m going to jump back on the Random Tuesday train, I look forward to getting to know your random thoughts!


  2. Maaaaaaan, I have missed your witty repartee! I wish you guys could have moved back here when you were buying a new house. I suppose we’ll have to plan a visit out that way one of these days! I’m so sorry you’re still dealing with covid after effects – does not sound like fun at all. I had the same thought about trying aerial yoga – I’m sure I’d end up breaking my face or neck or some other body part if I tried! 😀 Thanks for joining in the Random – so sorry it took me so long to get over here!!
