Stream of Consciousness Saturday
Today, our prompt from Linda G. Hill, is the following in the bold letters. And … Or … write about how the year 2020 went for us.
our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “day/week/month/year.” Use one, use them all, use them any way you’d like. Enjoy!
Well, first of all it’s that time of year when we have to set our clocks forward an hour – Spring forward for Daylight Savings Time. Sigh … eye roll … why are we still doing this? Wish they’d say it would stay one way or another all year long. If I had my choice though, I’d leave it on DST because I like it to stay light later in the evenings.
Only one of my clocks change automatically – my phone. The others we must do by pushing buttons. You really never realize how many clocks you have until you have to go changing them forward and back during a year.
Now how did my 2020 year go?
January was okay I think
February was okay until right after Valentine’s day. I think I had Covid, but they just said it was the flu. I’ve had the flu many times over my years, but nothing like this time. It was awful. I had to be taken to the hospital in an ambulance, and stayed there a week on oxygen and medications. Then finally got to go home, but still on oxygen and medicines for at least 6 weeks, with the home health nurses coming in several times a week
Then they say the Covid started up – but really it started in 2019 – Covid 19 you know. We were scared about it, of course. Started doing all the safety precautions, and we still are here a year later.
I go no where except I’ve been to a few doctor appointments. The mister does all the shopping for groceries. I disinfect it all when taking them out of the bags.
Staying in hasn’t been a big deal to me, as I’m not really a go out and do things person anyway. We’ve only seen our daughter & family a very few times. Usually we’d go out to eat, or to yard sales, but we didn’t get to during this year.
And now I have gotten both doses of the vaccine, so that’s a little bit of relief. Still taking precautions, though and will from now on I imagine.
The rest of the year’s months went just fine. Nothing much changes around here day to day. I read, I blog, I read, I cook, I do laundry, I watch TV, I read … and repeat.
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
