One of those weeks . . .

Why is Everything So Hard? — ParticipAid
 
We have all had them -- day after day when nothing is easy and even the smallest detail of a usual routine seems way harder than it needs to be or ever has been before.

At least we have the pandemic to blame it on

  1. Yes we can blame those difficult days on the pandemic, I have them too. Sometimes the isolation and emotional strain of the pandemic IS to blame!

  4. I know, I blame burnt toast on the pandemic. Kind of nice to have a scape goat.

  5. It has been that kind of year. All of it hit me at month 4. I was fine until then. I guess that is my limit. I am finding I wish to be around people I don't even like just to feel normal again. Pitiful.

  8. My husband and I have so many arguments about dumb things that we could call ourselves the Bickersons. This situation seems to bring the stubbornness out in each of us. The other day when we were arguing about some dumb thing we both looked down at about the same time and noticed that our Fuzzy Pomeranian, who is deaf, was sitting on the floor in front of us watching us argue like we were a tennis game. His head moving back and forth watching our lips move. It did stop the argument because my husband and I got to laughing about Fuzzy watching us. Maybe Fuzzy is trying to learn to read lips. The only "persons" benefiting from this at home all of the time situation are the pets. Fuzzy has started several new attention getting activities like purposely hiding his toy balls under the furniture so he can enjoy watching us try to retrieve them for him. And now a new thing where he starts running by revving up his back feet on the wood floor like the Roadrunner and then zooming off into a short run. It is so loud when he revs up like that on the hardwood floor, that it makes me jump. This is a 16 1/2 year old dog,he never did this before the past 3 months, and the more times he revs up like that in a day, the more stiff his hind legs are at night.

    So everyone in our household is becoming a little more wacky each day.

  9. Susie, that is SO funny about Fuzzy. I love the image of him watching a "tennis match" and making you laugh.
    Gigi, I should ask "what would Gigi do?" -- make a lovely meal and enjoy life in Hawaii!
    Patti, mine was a burned grilled cheese sandwich.
    All, yes, we do have bad days and good. It's a waiting game so might as well just accept as things come and go.

  11. I love the cartoon. I think we can forgive ourselves for feeling like everything is hard. It is hard. We're limited in what we can do and we have a barrage of bizarre things in the news. It's hard to be useful, it's hard to be apart from friends and family, it's boring!
