I live in a small town, so being able to do things like take the dog for a walk has been a relatively easy thing to do. We can walk for miles without meeting anyone.

I have an intense, sharp pain in my lower side that has been going on for about four days now. I’m a mild hypochondriac, so it is worrisome. But I’m working on staying calm right now, so I’m trying to not get too worked up about it. I think I know what’s causing it. I’ve definitely suffered from this pain before. And, it can wait for now.
Social distancing and self quarantining have included:
- Applying for jobs, even though I know basically 96% of the world has halted their hiring right now

- Worrying about Knight
- Writing tons of posts that I’ll never publish on this blog
- Hiding in my room
- Cleaning. Everything. With bleach.
Stay healthy. Stay safe. Be smart. Sending my best.
