May 9, 2020 - Covid-19 Pandemicby Michele L. Mueller on 05/09/20
It's been a couple of days since I blogged; I guess that means things are pretty much the same around here. We are healthy and just plugging along here in the Mueller house.
Hubby and kiddo have been leaving every Wednesday for a few days, for the past few weeks, to go turkey hunting a few hours south of here. That means they stay overnight and I've been getting some well deserved "me time". :) It makes a big difference when we are together SO much now. The hubby is driving me nuts - if he's not needing to be babied then he's shut in the bedroom watching tv and reading every news outlet on his phone. There's no happy medium right now. The kiddo is about the same with his schoolwork - some moments are great and others are...NOT. lol A few times he's run out of school work but it never fails - someone always drops off more schoolwork eventually. To be honest, I'm getting tired of it. lol I would never admit that to the kiddo because I have every intention of continuing until school is normally over for the year but between us...I'M TIRED OF IT!
Our WI governor, Tony Evers, is slowly issuing new guidelines for reopening. The State Supreme Court heard arguments against why the May 26th Safer at Home extension should be reversed...a few days ago. Nothing has been decided yet. Some people say it's because they are working on a new plan but by the time they get one together they might as well forget it because it will be the end of May then. lol What a joke. All the fighting and the conspiracy theories. Just do what your supposed to do people and shut the hell up - I'm tired of hearing about the arguments and the contradicting news coverage and all the other nonsense. Everyone and their brother seem to think they are suddenly experts on pandemics, or a lawyer or a doctor...give your mouth a rest people. "My constitutional rights are being violated!" "We need to build up our immunity by gathering!" and it goes on and on. It's really the worse part when you haven't been sick or known anyone sick with the virus. Ha. I think the virus is making people sick in the heads with nonsense, too.
So they've opened up a testing site in Crivitz, WI. The National Guard will be there to help out. It's for people who are experiencing some symptoms. Yeah right...don't tell me people aren't going to be in line for the curiosity or to just be able to say they were tested. Okay, people. Maybe they have some guidelines in order to administer the test but people can lie so... we'll see what becomes of it.
Mother's Day is tomorrow! :) I want to wish everyone one who reads this, if your a mom, a stepmom, a fur baby mom, a mom in the making, etc. Happy Mother's Day. May your day be as special as you are. Here's to your health and your happiness and your sanity. :) -MM
