Good morning all. The weekend has passed with us jaunting off to the cabin for some much needed R&R. I had planned on having a bit of day-drinking with my friends but this DAMN COVID messed that up yet again. One of the ladies husband had come down with the virus on Friday and I couldn't take the chance with my surgery so close to being possibly exposed. Even though she works in OKC at the Capitol and hadn't even been around her man it was just to iffy for me. I've already had a close encounter in December and dodged that bullet, I don't want to stretch my luck.
So we hunkered down with most of my view this from our bedroom.
Plus the fireplace kept us all nice and warm during the nasty cold snap. I accomplished not much more than reading two entire books and feeding us. We didn't take my walker so I only had my cane to get around. It's funny that as long as the temperatures stay about 45 I get around pretty good but if it is freezing, OH MAN! It's like my joints are like concrete. It just hurts so bad to try and even go to the bathroom. It tells me that a lot of my inability to just move is a lot of arthritis, but this hip replacement surgery cannot come soon enough. Time is ticking away as the time approaches and I am getting a bit nervous.
There is just so much I must get done before with work and home, plus I'm having a joint replaced!!!!! That is a lot scary for me. It's the end of 2021 at the office and for personal tax stuff. Since the surgery is February 3 that means I will also have a pile of bills that will need to be paid at the first of the month. I HAVE to stay up on that stuff and also payroll is in the middle of this. I will play it by ear and do the best I can do. I might need the help of my girls for sure to pull this off.
Work wise it has been not good this week. We have a total of 6 employees and 2 of them have Covid and one has an upper respiratory virus NOT COVID! That means half of our staff is off. You know we have gotten by for nearly 3 years without this so we've been pretty lucky. Also lucky is that I don't see any employees most of the time. They go straight to the jobsites, whew! It does make The Hubby groan and gruff around a lot of the time in the mornings. He gets jobs all set up with the customers and this many out makes it tricky. Thankfully they are understanding. Oh well, I guess this is life in the new world of Covid.
