OOC – Here I still sit…


April 1, 2020

I do believe that I am either becoming reconciled or just adjusting to the fact that I don’t have control over anything other than just choosing to accept it not.  I know that I have pretty much been a reclusive sort of individual for quite a few years and since I have the responsibility of taking care of my spouse, it doesn’t allow much free time to get out and socialize anyway.  However, I am an observer and just keep my distance as much as I can. One thing about being a gamer is that you have adapted to this “social distancing” long ago due to your habitual video games.  Gotta love it.

Of course, the quarantines and stay-at-home thing just applies to some people – I live in an HOA and we have construction workers doing work on our houses while we’re stuck inside and getting the benefits of our noise and activity.  That’s okay, at least I know that life is still going on – I’ll just have to sit this one out.  It does appear as though this will be going on for some time because of the restrictions with the COVID stuff.  Oh well, it should add to the entertaining side of life.

I have running around on alts and playing a hodge-podge of characters in WoW.  Just trying to get involved in some fun stuff and generally trying to keep my spirits up.  I wasn’t much of a social butterfly to begin with, but it was nice to see people walking by occasionally, however, now, it’s unusual to see people outside at all. 

Anyway, getting back to the game, I’ve been having some fun and hiding out with my lowbies is kind of relaxing.  Occasionally I do get immersed a little more in the game than I have in the last year – guess that is a good thing on some levels.  Might mean that my writer’s block is on its way out, I hope.

Naturally, I do have my usual interruptions and that does break the chain of thought sometimes.  I’m fortunate that all my kids are grown and gone from the area, however, I still have my husband that keeps me busy with his needed caregiving.  I must say that there are days when it seems to be rather over-whelming to me at times.

I have learned more about shopping online and having the patience of Job when I’m waiting on deliveries – toilet paper is a commodity that seems to be nonexistent these days.  I ordered toilet paper and it might get here by May 20th – it’s being shipped from China, of all the places.   Yeah, made me giggle a bit on that one with considering all the stuff that is going on now.

Our “Stay at Home” order for our area in Denver has been extended to April 30th and may get extended again.  I do feel sorry for the people that have lost their jobs and for the businesses that are trying so valiantly to stay afloat.  I think the economic devastation is going to be worse than the virus, however, we’ve learned to adapt to things and will continue to do so.

Well, enough of my rambling thoughts and just trying to get warmed up for some writing.

See you all in Azeroth.
