Hi there! I hope you are holding up well. ❀ It’s been exactly 1 week since I wrote my last Journal Entry.

After I published it, boyfriend and I played some video games on the XBOX together.

Sushi, of course, had to join in on the fun! πŸ˜›

On Thursday, I started playing Animal Crossing, both on the phone app and on my Nintendo 3DS. Not the newest one that everyone is talking about (because I don’t have a Switch and can’t afford one) but, still, it has been a blast. Super relaxing and cute. I get the hype.

Boyfriend made us some steak tips with baked beans and corn. It was mighty delicious.

Friday, he cooked up some thick pork chops and served them with mashed potatoes and broccoli!

I wrote up my FFF post, read a huge chunk of Coreygraphy, and caught up on some blogs on my Reader. I’m still pretty far behind but, I am so happy to have tons of unread posts while locked inside. ❀ Thank you for entertaining me!!

On Saturday, we had our first unpleasant meal…

wp-1585793300243.jpg

We tried these frozen Swai fillets for the first time and they just… were not *it.* I don’t know how or why but, it tasted like a plain omelette…. and had the same texture, too. We hated it.

Boyfriend whipped up some lemon-flavored orzo and corn for the side. They saved the meal and helped me finish it all.

Sunday, we went to Albertsons, once again, to grab MORE food to fill our freezer, fridge, and cabinets. We had brats, marinara pasta, and frozen mixed veg for dinner.

wp-1585793300228.jpg

I played some more Animal Crossing and was petting Sushi when I noticed a weird bump on his chin… I did hours of research and decided it was probably acne but, could not stop worrying. Luckily, the vet is still open and taking patients but, they were only allowing call-ins, from 9 AM-4 or 5 PM.

wp-1585210705769.jpg

Since we haven’t been sleeping until nearly 7 AM everyday, we knew we wouldn’t wake up on time to call and set an appointment so, we decided to just stay up.

The receptionist, at first, wanted us to just drop our boy off and leave him there until they were able to see him– saying they’d call us when they were done. I said, “absolutely not, we will be accompanying him, at whatever time that’s possible.”

We also were super low on weed and the dispensary we buy from has limited their deliveries to 50 people per day. You have to order a day ahead and you have to do so within the time frame, before all 50 slots are taken up.

Since we were up to call the vet, we were up to get our order in right on time. πŸ˜€ Phew!

We were set to bring him in at 1 PM which meant… only about 2-3 hrs of sleep for us. We slept right after making the call and putting in our weed order.

wp-1585793300212.jpg

We got up around 12:30 PM and put him in his carrier, he was so good and calm. Only meowing a bit in the car.

When we got there, my gosh, it was so nice to talk to other people. The receptionist was such a joy. The vet called him in quickly, determined it was acne (as we thought), and gave us some shampoo, wipes, and antibiotics to help it go away.

They shaved his little chin, too!!

Aaaaaand, of course, they had to mention that he was overweight but, the vet actually said, “it’s no big deal, we are all overweight– even I am” as he patted his own belly. LOL.

wp-1585793300195.jpg

On the way home, we let him out of his carrier. He was walking around and looking out the windows, happily. I think he enjoys car rides. πŸ˜€ Benji would be straight-up howling the entire time and Twinkle would not want to leave her carrier at all.

We tried to give Sushi his antibiotic by opening the capsule and mixing the powder in some wet food but, he was smart as heck, took one lick and ignored it completely.

Benji’s crazy ass found it on the counter later and ate it all up though!! I knew I should’ve just thrown it away but, I was saving it to try to give to Sushi again. So, on top of worrying about Sushi not eating his medicine, I was worried about Benji sneakily eating it?? I don’t get HOW or WHY he didn’t mind the taste!!

Sushi, I guess, is so stuck up sometimes (especially about food… believe it or not!) and Benji WILL eat anything, even if it’s doused in Blazin’ sauce from BWW. I don’t get him.

BUT, both of them are perfectly fine, health-wise. Thankfully.

When we got home, we didn’t even take a nap. I watched the entire Season 03 of On My Block and then, started the film, Big Time Adolescence.

Boyfriend made us a steak with fries and corn for dinner.

wp-1585793300181.jpg

I had a small headache so I ended up turning the film off before it was over and went to lay down in our bed. Boyfriend joined me and almost fell asleep but, by then, my headache had disappeared and I wasn’t ready to sleep for the rest of the nigh soooo, I woke him up and we went back out into the living room. πŸ˜€

wp-1585210705735.jpg

I watched some more of the film and played a bit of Animal Crossing until we went to bed, around 5 AM.

Yesterday, we called the vet and asked if there was another way to get Sushi to take his pill. They told us if he was detecting it in the food, we had to force-open his mouth and get it in there. Sadly, it pained me so bad but, we did have to do it that way.

Boyfriend held his mouth open and I had to get the pill in, he pushed it out with his tongue about 3 times before we finally got him to swallow. We gave him some wet food as a treat afterwards and he quickly forgave us.

For dinner, we had lovely beef fajita burritos and some rice, that didn’t turn out too well…

wp-1585793300125.jpg

I spent my night watching the newest episodes of Good Girls and The Voice then, finished Big Time Adolescence and moved onto Season 02 of The End of the F***ing World.

I had a few episodes left when it was time for bed.

I started a new book, Little Monsters, before falling asleep.

Today, we woke up around 2 PM. I took a shower, played Animal Crossing, and then did my stretch and workout routine. I should probably start doing it every single day now since I’m getting NO exercise otherwise!

wp-1585793300104.jpg
My little workout buddy! ❀

Benji was laying on my mat the entire time and would not move, no matter how many times I nudged him!

For dinner, boyfriend made us these awesome teriyaki chicken thighs and steak seasoned asparagus.

wp-1585793300075.jpg

We watched EOTFW while eating and then, I started typing this when I finished.

I’m disappointed because The Smith Center sent out e-mails about all their upcoming shows and announced that the rest of my Broadway season has been cancelled, not even postponed. I really was dying to see Mean Girls and The Band’s Visit wasn’t even scheduled until late-June so I feel like they could’ve held off on deciding for that one. But, oh well, hopefully they give me my refund soon.

They have closed all call centers and are only working by e-mail so we will see how long that takes. They haven’t responded yet and I’m kind of annoyed but, I also totally understand that there’s tons of subscription holders sending them the same e-mail. I’ll have to be patient.

wp-1585793300147.jpg

I’m even more disappointed in my apartments because they did *not* give any sort of leniency towards rent payments. Instead, they put up a sign in their office, listing the places who are hiring.

Honestly, I probably should find one of those jobs BUT, I do not want to get sick and be in contact with people every single day!!

Initially, cats and dogs were excluded from being able to catch the virus but, data has come up and the first cat, one in Belgium, tested positively. That truly terrifies me.

We still have another appointment, too, to check up on how Sushi’s acne is doing (on the 6th). I get paranoid that you could have 0 symptoms, test negative, and/or not know for 24 whole days! I hate that!

If his chin is cleared up by then, we may just not go. We do not need anymore exposure, y’know?

wp-1585793300164.jpg

Two of my aunts in MN got letters from work, informing them that they had been exposed. One of them went to get the test. She said she sat in her car and they came to her window, stuffed a super long q-tip through her nose, all the way to the back of her head. She said it was extremely uncomfortable, which I could only imagine… so seriously, guys. Stay safe and clean!!!! You do not want to have to do that.

I’m really hoping we won’t all of a sudden need something and have to go out again. We are so ill prepared for this pandemic, we just need to get our shit together, for real. πŸ˜›

wp-1585210705758.jpg

Please, wish Sushi’s acne away so we don’t have to go back to the vet!! ❀ Thank you in advance and have a great rest of your week!!

  1. I have a bunch of wandering thoughts these days so I came up with a short-ish list of questions for you:

    1. Out of curiosity, you have a name and your cats have names, but boyfriend does not? Is there a reason why?
    2. If you run out of weed and don’t have any for a few days, will you get bad withdrawal symptoms? If so, what are these symptoms like? Do you smoke it out of boredom or does it provide medicinal effects that you cannot live without?

    Thanks for taking the time to answer these weird questions, if you decide to answer them! πŸ˜…

    1. Lol hi Hilary πŸ™‚ boyfriend *does* have a name, it’s Alex, but I don’t write it out because those who are reading my entries for the first time might wonder who Alex is if I just call him by name, y’know? πŸ˜› If I didn’t have weed, I wouldn’t have any bad withdrawal symptoms, physically, but, I do get sort of crabby. It really helps relieve my anxiety, helps me sleep, and just keeps me level-headed. Way better than Xanax or any other prescribed pills, if you ask me. πŸ™‚

      ❀ Hope you're doing well!!

      1. Thanks for answering my questions, Hunida! πŸ™‚ I’ve always liked the name Alex and would name my kid Alex if I got my way. I totally get that – if I refer to my husband as Nick, people always ask me who Nick is. Does your boyfriend know about your blog? Does he read your blog posts? Nick reads mine sometimes. I think it’s cute that he reads them. πŸ€—

        I didn’t know that weed helps with sleep. I’ve been wanting to get CBD oil but Nick is against that idea. I suffer from insomnia and have resorted to an all-natural sleeping aid instead. Most nights I use it, it helps. I agree that prescription meds aren’t the answer and will try to avoid them as much as possible. πŸ˜“

        1. No problem, Hilary. πŸ™‚ Alex is a really cute name but, totally too common, in my opinion! & yes, my boyfriend does know I have a blog. I don’t think he reads it though lol, I do tell him what I write sometimes & he gives me feedback on the theme & graphics/images I use!

          Oh my gosh, weed is the best for sleep. I don’t think I’d ever fall asleep without it, honestly. CBD is legal in all 50 states, isn’t it? I don’t see why he’d be against it but, to each their own! I hope your all-natural sleep aid helps! ❀

  3. That’s disappointing that the fillets weren’t good because the meal looked like it would be in the picture! Sigh, but at least you know now that you all don’t like them. Sorry about Sushi’s acne and I hope it clears up soon! You describing how you got him to take his medicine sounds like such a difficult task, but a sight to see! I’m glad Benji is okay after eating the medicine, but that’s a funny how he’ll eat just about anything. At least you don’t have to worry about how to give him medicine, haha.

    Hopefully your aunts are healthy! The test freaks me out and looks extremely uncomfortable. Are the fries homemade or are they frozen? Either way, they’re making me crave some! I’ve half considered applying for a job somewhere but I really don’t want to be exposed either.

    What’s funny is our rent place took off the service fees. So whenever we pay online directly from our bank account, it’s $1.95 service fee. I think it adds up to about $30 if you pay with your credit card. I suppose that’s better than nothing[?] but a financial leniency would’ve been lovely since we’re all probably struggling together!

    I hope your week is going as well as it can, Hunida! β™₯

    1. Ugh, I don’t know what was up with those Swai fillets. They tasted so odd lol. πŸ˜› & I hated giving Sushi his pill & then it made him sick so we’re definitely not giving it to him anymore. I hope his acne will clear up with just the wipes & shampoo! Benji is crazy– he didn’t have any sign of an upset stomach after eating it & Sushi was the one who needed them LOL. I was saying how much easier it would’ve been if Benji was the one who had acne!

      Yeah, seriously. That test looks awful. My aunt still hasn’t got her results back! & the fries were homemade, cooked in the oven again. πŸ™‚ I really rather not be exposed either, I’m sure our financial issues will work themselves out eventually so I’ll be holding off from working (or going) anywhere for now. I’d rather deal with debt than death!!

      Lol I hate how some places are making such tiny small adjustments to help out. Like our internet company gave us $20 off & no overage fees for 3 months… like okay?? & our phone company is like, “no worries, pay us in arrangements but still pay us!” πŸ˜›

      I hope yours is going well, too, Stephanie! ❀ Thank you!!

      1. Aw, I hope that Sushi is feeling better now! I’d bet it would just take time. I never really considered cats getting acne, so that’s a new one! Let’s hope all your cats stay well during this time for you all to minimize your outings!

        I don’t remember how long it takes for the test results come back, but I’ll be thinking of your aunt! Yeah, I do believe the financial stuff will work out in the end, so hang in there! I get that companies have their own bills, but can’t we get a little slack with the situation? It’s not like they’re hurting as critically as the customers and tenants! Haha.

        Gosh, I’m wondering how much quarantine will make us all crazy. It’s nice to still be able to use the Internet and chat with people, or else I think I really would go bonkers!

        1. Thank you! Sushi is definitely feeling a bit better now & his acne is clearing up nicely. πŸ™‚ We ended up cancelling our appointment today since it wouldn’t be worth the risk!

          The doctor told her she’d get her results back in 3-5 days but, still, nothing. I think they are out of tests & her swab is just sitting there, if I’m being honest.

          I KNOW! & they’d be losing their business, not their freakin’ home, y’know? Our landlords def should be cutting us some slack.

          I think I’d go bonkers without the internet, too. I can’t imagine it!

          1. That’s great to hear about Sushi! It just takes some time to clear up, and I wouldn’t risk going out either! I’m somewhat paranoid about going to the grocery store now.

            If that is the case of being out of tests, then that’ll cause so many inaccuracies and lots of anxiety while waiting! Also, it’s not like an apartment complex doesn’t have enough money coming in from each unit, and one that’s probably overpriced! I’m sure they could’ve cut us all some slack a little, sigh. It makes me wonder how people spent their time without the Internet — what a completely different world!

            Hopefully you’ll hear some good news soon, Hunida, and I hope you’re enjoying your free time! β™₯

  5. I need to get a switch. Lol. I’ll have to download the app for Animal Crossing and maybe CL can join me Haha.
    Food looks delish as always! Except for the Swai fillets of course. Which I’ve never heard of lol. Lately I’ve been craving lasagna 😬
    I can’t believe they would suggest you leave him there. Poor thing would have probably been scared that you just left him there. I wouldn’t like that either. I’m glad he is okay as we’ve talked about this yesterday 😁
    He is so cute! The fact that he likes car rides makes me love him even more. Awwwww
    Whaaaaaaaaat??? Benji just ate the medicine??? How??? 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣 ah Sushi! Lol
    I had to look at the picture of Sushi and Benji sleeping together closely, I’m laughing that Sushi is using Benji’s butt as a pillow 🀣🀣 I was going to ask, considering that Twinkle Star stays in your room, does that mean that Sushi and Benji stay in the living room when you guys go to bed?
    Oooh I watched S1 of The End of The F*ng World and really liked it. I had completely forgotten they added a new season.
    I feel bad about not exercising. I just feel so down but something has to change….
    I’m really sorry they cancelled the rest of the season. You were so looking forward to Mean Girls and Hamilton, was it?
    Our landlord hasn’t said shit to us either, so it sucks. A lot property owners are being fuck wads about this whole rent thing…
    I do remember reading that cats can get infected. I thought about you immediately! 😫
    I’m sooo terrified of all of this, honestly. The carelessness of some people is really upsetting. I’m glad you guys are staying in and not going out as much. It sucks but it will keep you healthier for longer. If you ever want to chat just send me a text or we can video chat through WhatsApp. πŸ€—

      Those Swai fillets were naaaasty lol… do not know how people eat those. It was the first time we tried them. & I would love some lasagna right now, too… wow, I haven’t ate that in AGES.

      I know, I was like, why would I ever just drop him off? Would they just leave him in his carrier until they could get to him? Heck no!! I’m glad we were able to go with & he was sooo cute in the car. ❀ Maybe we will bring him on more of them haha.

      I KNOW! Benji just ate the food like it wasn't mixed with medicine at all. I don't know how he couldn't taste it or if he didn't care? He's so strange lol. & yess!! Sushi always uses Benji as a pillow, it's hilarious. ❀

      EOTFW Season 2 was really good! I was surprised! Hope you like it, too, when/if you watch it!

      I am soso sad about the cancellation of my season but, NO THANK GOD, Hamilton is my *next* season which starts with the show My Fair Lady in like August, I think? So that one's still on… for now, at least. πŸ˜› I'm just so bummed about missing Mean Girls! I was really looking forward to that one. 😦

      Do you have a mortgage??? Under the new CARES Act, you are able to get your payments waived or postponed, I think! But, I don't know if Alex is still working that you'll be able to? Not sure… I'm still so confused on what *I'm* eligible for right now… I hate this!!!!! 😦 & I'm even more worried everyday since I read that cats & dogs can get it. 😦

      I know, it's really disturbing to see how careless SO many people are being. We are trying our veryvery best to not have to go out. Then, we run into a problem like right now, all of our lighters died but, LUCKILY, I grabbed tons of matchbooks on my last day at work lol. We'll have to use them until they’re all gone. πŸ˜›

        Neither have I. I think the last time I had lasagna was….two years ago?? Omg it’s time haha
        That would be cute if he went on car rides with you guys. some cats dont mind, weirdly. He might be one of those.
        Havent gotten around to that show, I’ve been watching anime shows recently and when I dont, I hardly watch anything because I’m playing board games or video games with the boys.
        Will the shows that got canceled be brought back in the future?
        No mortgage. House belongs to my brother. But Alex informed that he will be laid off for two weeks at the end of the month and they might work for like another week or two and off another two weeks or something like that. So good news is he will be home with us for a while, but bad news is less income for our household now. It’s all kind of crappy at the moment. Ugh yeah I’m hoping Sophie doesn’t get it, she’s like 9 years old now. She doesn’t really go anywhere though so idk.

          I have no idea about the shows that got cancelled. I truly hope they return sometime but they’ve already got the whole next year lined up so it wouldn’t be for awhile…

          I hope this pandemic ends soon & we will all be healthy & financially stable again. I honestly have no idea how old my cats are unless I do some math lol. The boys must be around 7 & Twinkie is around 3 or 4 now? Either way, I never want them to get sick! πŸ˜›

    Those steak tips look yummy and so does the pork chops with mashed potatoes! And the teriyaki chicken!

    I just read Swai Fish: 5 Reasons Not to Eat Them. https://utopia.org/guide/swai-5-reasons-to-avoid-this-exotic-fish/

    Mmm fajita burrito sounds good! I wish I could see inside it.

    How do you like the new season of Good Girls so far? OMG Episode 5!!!!

    What about The End of the F**king World? Did you love it as much as I did?

    I saw something about cats carrying the virus, too and looked at Marilyn and thought “Yikes…and here you are going back and forth between us and your family every day.” But will I stop having her sleep with me? Hell to the no. That’s my baby. I’ll just have to take my chances and so will Mom.

      1. How’s the little pimply-Puss doing today?

        Word to the wise…don’t try to cook something called boneless beef shortribs. Toughest bites of meat I’ve ever tried to chew my way through. I tried cooking the leftovers for several hours in the crockpot, but even that didn’t do it. Felt bad throwing them out but they were seriously a choking hazard.

  8. I’m glad Sushi is okay and it was nothing too serious. That brat looks really good, but I would have green peppers and onions on mine. πŸ˜› I am also terrified of animals being able to catch the virus! I would be devastated if my kitty Cameron got really sick. He is like my son. (He’s laying on the chair behind me as I type this, and I’m on the edge. lol)

    1. Thank you, Britney! ❀ I am so glad it was nothing too serious for Sushi, too. ❀ We did have the onions for our brats & if we had green peppers… that would've been lovely, too. I did add some ketchup & stone ground mustard on top after the photo though!

      I was so relieved when they first said cats & dogs were immune to the virus but, now I'm seriously freaking out. I do not want them to catch it. & oh my gosh, sometimes I will allow my cats to take over my chair & be uncomfortable myself, too. Haha, too cute. ❀ ❀ I hope kitty Cameron & YOU (& your mom) are doing well. ❀

  9. So sorry to hear about Sushi’s acne! (I didn’t know cats could even get acne.) Hope you don’t have to go out again for it. Our vet has stayed open too, but he’s only letting in a few people at a time and you can’t wait in the waiting room at all. I also heard a dog in China died from the virus, which is so sad!

    1. Lol it’s so funny that cats can get acne, right? I’m just sad that mine did! πŸ˜› & I think we’ll just be skipping our next appointment. No need to expose him to the Rona for minor skin issues!

      I’m glad the vets are staying open. It would be terrible if they didn’t. Ours is the one inside of Petsmart & the store is still open so we got to wait there. I would have been sad to have to just drop him off. 😦

  10. First, seeing so many cute cat pictures throughout this post was an absolute delight especially given the horrible news being covered everyday. I had no clue that cats could get acne but I’m glad that is all that it was and that your vet was still able to see Sushi. I’ll be praying that the acne clears up so that you guys don’t have to go out again.

    I cannot believe that your apartment building wouldn’t be lenient with rent!!! So many landlords near me are being lenient with rent for anyone who’s job was affected by the virus shut down – in some cases halving the rent or pausing it for the month.

    I’m sorry to read that two of your aunts have been exposed and I will be praying for them during this time.

    1. Aw yay! I’m so happy that the photos of my kitties could brighten your day a bit. ❀ I'm so glad that Sushi just had acne & nothing too serious. I think, at this point, we'll just skip the next appt to make sure he doesn't get exposed. The Rona would be WAY worse for him to have!!

      & I KNOW. I heard that even other people near us are getting rent lenience but… nope, not us. 😦 Even people who are living in motels are not having to pay right now…

      & thank you so much for praying for my aunts, LP. ❀ ❀

  11. First of all girl, I am coming and quarantining with you guys! I need to eat something because all that food looks soooo yummy! Second sending you so much love and hugs. Sending prayers that Sushi’s acne heals quickly! Poor thing! Giving animals medicine legit is the worst! I am sorry your management company won’t be lenient. That truly sucks!
    Ughhh girl I could go into a long spiel about Broadway. My heart literally hurts for all my friends out of work, and whose projects are now being cancelled. (not even postponed!) Hopefully fingers crossed you will get a refund, and also be able to see the shows at a later date. The Band’s Visit is great, Mean Girls is good if you are a fan of the movie.
    I hope you are hanging in there! Sending you so much love and health! ❀

    1. Lol the food has been good! I don’t know what the heck I’d be eating without boyfriend here cooking everything. πŸ˜› Thank you for praying for Sushi. β™‘ It totally helped because his chin is clearing up quite nicely now! The medicine was hard to adminster & he got sick so we ended up only giving him 2 of the pills.

      I am so sad for broadway & the performers. 😦 I know they are considered gig-workers, too. It’s such a shame they couldn’t postpone more shows. Cancelling was so harsh!

      I’m soso sad about both Mean Girls & The Band’s Visit. I do hope they return sometine!

      Thank you so much, Kate! Sending love & health right back!

  13. Glad to hear Sushi is doing better. Poor baby. The food is looking good as usual even though you aren’t going to Chinatown to eat . I pray that your auntie’s test comes out negative . Prayers . Why don’t folks wear their masks and gloves and follow self distancing rules. This virus from hell would go away faster if only folks would do what they were told. Stay safe . #goawaycoronavirus #selfquarantine

    1. Sushi is doing much better, thank you, Jo Ann! β™‘ & I reeeeally miss Chinatown right now but I’m thankful boyfriend knows what he’s doing in the kitchen.

      My auntie still hasn’t got her test results back & it’s been over 3-5 days now. Thank you for keeping her in your prayers. β™‘

      & I so agree! If only everyone would just stay inside & wear protective gear– this virus *could end a lot sooner.

      Hope you’re well!! β™‘

  14. Phew, thank god it was only a pimple! And the vet is so cute about the overweight comment! HAHAHA! oh man, I’m sorry all the shows got cancelled but not suprising with the covid-19 situation. I hope Sushi’s pimple clears up asap! Stay home and stay safe man, this virus is a goddamn bitch!

    1. I know! I’m so happy it was nothing more serious & it was really sweet how the vet patted his own belly, what a funny guy. πŸ˜‚ & yeah, of course, I get why the shows were cancelled but I’m still sad lol.

      Thank you, Cordelia! Hope you’re staying safe & at home as well. ❀

  15. Glad to see your cat is OK – and even more so that you guys are OK these days. Hopefully things get sorted out on the money/rent front soon. Here most everyone is either working from home or, sadly, without work. Some landlords are being better than others. Our province has frozen evictions, though, so while people might get in trouble for not paying rent, they can’t be evicted. I hope something like that happens soon (or has already) for you guys.

    Take care and stay safe, both of you.

    1. Hi Todd! So nice to hear from you. πŸ™‚ The cats are doing really well now! & our governor did, luckily, activate the eviction freeze for us, too but, our landlord still expects us to pay our rent. I worry about what it’ll do to my credit. & we are the unlucky ones who were part of the glitch with the stimulus checks, too. Hopefully, everything will sort itself out because I feel totally out of control.

      Thanks for checking in, though! Hope you & yours are staying safe & well, too! ❀

      1. What a mess. I hope it’s sorted soon. At least for now you can relax a little bit without HUGE worries. I can’t imagine with such a big impact that you’ll be left hanging. There are too many others in the same situation to just let people go without help / relief.

  16. I’m sorry your apartments aren’t being more understanding with everything going on Hunida! I’m also unemployed now and I am in the same boat as you, trying to decide if I can wait this out or if I should just suck it up and find any work even if I could potentially expose myself and my family. I’m leaning towards the first one honestly, since I don’t think it’s worth the risk. I hope Sushi’s acne clears up so you don’t have to go out again! As for Animal Crossing, I was so tempted to buy a Switch and the game right before losing my job and I’m so thankful I held off because it would just be money I didn’t *need* to spend, ya know? Wishing you all the best!

    1. Aw wow, I am soso sorry to hear that, Pamela. 😦 I think we are going to wait it out for now, too. Both of us are getting the “glitch” & are also still waiting on the stimulus checks. Our apartments still aren’t pausing rent but, our governor did activate the No Eviction thing. So that’s good… I still worry what it’ll do to my credit though. BUT, I do think staying indoors is much safer. My aunt in Minnesota has caught the virus & it does not sound pretty…

      On the bright side, Sushi’s acne HAS cleared up even after cancelling his second appointment & quitting his antibiotic pills after just 2 of them. πŸ™‚

      I totally get what you mean about not buying the Switch. Everything always happens for a reason & you totally needed the money for better things. ❀ Do you play the Pocket Camp app on your phone?? I have been enjoying that more than New Leaf on my Nintendo. πŸ™‚ We can be friends on there, too!!

      ❀ wishing you all the best, too, love!!!

      1. Omg I do hope your aunt is okay! And I hope the rent has been properly paused now and that you and your boyfriend are still doing well.
        Oh that’s good that Sushi is doing better! Saved you another trip so that must add to the relief!
        Yes! I totally would have bought it I think if this was normal times as I had already been thinking about it and I’m sure the buzz about Animal Crossing would still be there but now I’m just thinking it’s better to be cautious and wait it out until everything is more stable and just catch up on the game later on. And I don’t have Pocket Camp but I might download it!

        1. Hi Pamela! My aunt is doing much better now. She is going back in for testing, hoping she is offically cleared. πŸ™‚ Our rent never paused still & they’re still expecting it in full, on time. Boyfriend & I are doing the best we can though! I hope you & your family are doing well, too!

          Sushi *was* all cleared up but, has somehow another little patch of acne going on now. 😭

          Let me know if you download Pocket Camp!! β™‘β™‘
