Iím shocked by my weight.
I wish I could be shocked enough to stop overeating.
Nothing to blame but poor self-control.

I want things back to “normal”.

I hate worrying about every little contact. I am grateful that DH complies with my disinfecting protocol. (Even though he thinks I may be a bit extreme.)

I want to just sit and relax and laugh, and share an adult beverage with my sister and friends.


Thanks for letting me whisper these things

I need to stop sneaking little portions of snack food throughout the day (like a handful of M&M's) because it adds up!

I miss my parents (they are out of town on a vacation now)

I have never been afraid of getting sick, I am the most opposite you can get of a germ-ophob and a hypercondriac, but with things opening up and getting busier, I'm starting to get nervous! I'm hesitant to do certain things.

I watched the final installment of Fuller House the last few days and I cried at some points. . Hopefully I whispered that one really, really quietly!

Arizona coronavirus cases are shooting up because people act like it's gone. It's making me angry and scared. I'm dying to get my hair cut, but I won't risk it. We opened too soon and without real protocols. I'm just tired of people being selfish.

My dh missed out because he was rude to me. We aren't arguing. We just don't talk. I had a few hours yesterday to myself and I mopped my floor during the time. WTF?

I have to work on my taxes today.

I am jumping back on the weight wagon- I was doing great before the shelter at home, but that quickly ended. I am motivated again to watch what I shove in my mouth. I didn't gain much, but... Back to it.

Today feels more like Worried Wednesday.

How will my annual physical go tomorrow? Kidney counts are elevated.

Should I sue this bum doc who strung me along and never researched why my knee replacement was problematic until months after surgery? I spent nine months in disabling pain until I found someone else to help me.

Why is my DS having seizures? When can he get the next EEG?

When can I retire?

Iím not pleased with the my district's plans for reopening in June.

Iím so fatigued from the unrest in my mind and the world around me.

  • I tied a string around the TV remote control and taped it where DH can’t take it out of my reach.
  • I’ve gained 10 pounds since DD cape home.
  • I’ve hurt my shoulder and can’t lift my arm, but I’m the only one home with DD today.
  • My third harvest of spinach and cilantro are ready to pick today.
  • I have eight tomatoes on my little tomato plant.
  • I left the roku remote control 3 1/2 hours away at in-law’s House.

I'm cranky because I'm counting calories!!!
Why didn't I stick with my diet back in March when I had already lost 10 pounds???
I need a trip to the beach.
My DH needs to get a job!
Hoping my knee pain goes away soon!

I want to go back to school in September.
Will wear a hazmat suit or a bubble ball if I have to.
Will do whatever it takes to go back.
Miss my Teacher-Self.
Miss my students.
Promise to never take it for granted again.
My colleague has so many concerns and she does not want to go back.
She voices her concerns to parents and now they do not want to send their kids to school.
I want her to retire and then she can stay home all she wants.

I'm with arsabl...Worried Wednesday. Or maybe Waiting Wednesday. Waiting for a call about my SO's back surgery. I dropped him off at 7:30 this morning and drove two hours back home...and now I worry and wait for an update on how it went. I have a training at school at 1:00...with my luck that's probably when I'll end up getting the phone call.

I'm also waiting for several emails from my principal so I can finish up end-of-year paperwork and get some info out to families.

-DH is upset with me. I called in a refill for one of his pills too early as he still has six pills left. (He likes to wait until he has two left.) He doesn't get it that there is a shortage of these pills nationally. The pharmacy has enough to fill it now, but if he waits we (actually me) will be calling other pharmacies trying to find a place to fill it (I had to do this last year and never want to do it again). The alternative would be to change the med, but it took forever to balance the dosage of the multiple meds he takes now. He'll have to get over it.

-Ordered a new refrigerator two weeks ago. Still not here. We have a small size, not in current style, but still manufactured, color. It is coming from the regional warehouse.

-I need a haircut. I needed one, was about to schedule, when COVID started here. I just can't get myself to pick up the phone.

I also just want regular school again.

DD 25 is coming home for a good chunk of the summer :-) sadly her fiance has to leave in 2 weeks and go back to the UK for now because his work visa is up. They are still trying to figure out next steps. Lots of their plans got put on hold or cancelled due to covid-19. Luckily they both still have jobs though I wish things could just be flash forwarded for them with some answers that they both like.

I don't want to do our staff meeting stuff on Monday for our last day

I'm not worried about numbers going up (I live in AZ). JMO

DS has been on mandatory OT since Memorial Day weekend and the protests started. He's a police officer. I worry about him being so tired and getting hurt. It's pretty calm here so that's a good thing.

I'd love to go on vacation where there is a beach or even a lake.


DH has to take the Covid-19 test tomorrow as he's having outpatient surgery later this month.

I'm shocked by my weight too. I had an in person doctor's visit with an in person scale.

I'm praying for motivation.

But the lump on my chest or breast looks like it is probably just a fatty tumor. Mammograms, ultrasounds and cyst incision are coming up. I'll know in a few weeks.

Scheduled my foot appointment.
Worried that it is caused by some underlying condition.
One doctor said I might have an autoimmune disease. End of discussion.
Doctors donít seem concerned but I am
Terrified mysterious underlying condition is the true cause of my vision issues.

Nothing is satisfying in the food department so I keep eating everything to try to find what I want.

I'm feeling kinda petty and not very nice inside because I am actually relieved to see Karma come back around and bite someone who is long overdo. I feel incredibly guilty for having these feelings, yet glad that I will no longer have to deal with this person at my school anymore.

I'm mad I was in the best shape I'd been in for years on March 13. I can't say that now.
We need a new water heater and car repairs that total nearly 3k. Ugh.

I REALLY, selfishly hope they lift hospital visiting restrictions before September. My DD is having her first baby and the thought of not seeing her right after she gives birth kills me.

I'm done with the virus. I know it's not done and I'm not being stupid, but I'm done.

There is no way I can teach in a mask all day and be effective.

I am so tired of my adult son still living with us. It's not his fault. He is on the spectrum, but I am weary of it after 33 years. I am ashamed to feel this way.

I want to retire. This distance learning experience has convinced me. (And if that didn't, wearing the mask is further proof to me that I'm done.)

I feel like I need to work at least another year because of our retirement accounts taking a hit. I just found out on Monday that I have to move classrooms.

I feel guilty about complaining about the mask because my niece wears a surgical mask, plus a cloth mask, plus a shield or the goggles because she works as a sonographer with high risk patients in a major hospital and they don't have N95 masks for them. I would never, ever complain about it to her.

I am so sick of going through the stress of applications and interviews every year. Our hiring system is complicated and unfair, and I can't seem to catch a break. I feel like I must be an awful teacher because no one will hire me. I am truly ready to leave teaching if I don't get a job this year.

A friend and her girls walked by while we were outside today and we let them play together. I feel a little guilty/anxious but it was so good to talk to a friend and to see my daughter come out of her shell and associate with other kids.

I am eating too much crap and am so tired of coming up with meal ideas for everyone.

I am so sick of socks all over my floor. DH takes his off wherever he feels like it, the baby pulls his off every chance he gets, DD wears hers on her hands as Elsa's gloves and I have to be Anna and pull one off. I counted 9 socks in my view this morning while I was nursing the baby.
