So, I’m sitting here on a beautiful afternoon, having just signed out from the day job, and I realize, I need to write my blog!
My problem? I have no topic. None.
I must admit, these past couple of weeks of working from home (for which I am extremely grateful – I work for a great company who really cares about its employees) have turned my brain into mush, and you know the kind I’m talking about. Oatmeal with milk and sugar. Thin. Runny. No substance. When I was laid off from my previous position and I stayed home for a bit so I could decompress from a toxic environment, there was a much different feel to it.
This? Right now? So strange.
I’m calling it “Information Overload”.
Too many news stories, too much confusion, too much conflicting information. For a while there, I put myself on a strict diet of no news, but found I couldn’t do it. I have to know, you know?
So I’ve been reading the news feeds once again (and yes, sometimes the comments…there have been a few occasions where I just sat here with my mouth hanging open from shock and surprise, repeating to myself – stupidly – Wow! WOW!)
I think I need to go on that self-imposed diet again. No more news. I’ll talk with my DH instead (he’s enjoyed having me home…the dogs, too. They think because I’m here, they can have more cookies. *Sigh* They’re right!), deal with a plumbing issue (it’s an old house, bound to happen), and try to keep my sanity.
I’m getting there, though. Hope you are, too. Stay well. Stay safe.
Until next time, remember to spread kindness wherever you go. We need it more now than ever before.
