The title being in all caps is the reality of the disturbance in my head…I steal the term, disturbance, after hearing it used by a tv weather guy. Talking about the Canadian air mass sitting over the region for two weeks….”cold temperatures and smaller “disturbances” equals more chance for snow.

Seriously…disturbance? from the news media who normally has us hugging ourselves tightly while they scream shelter in place, lock your doors you are all going to die as our mental health experiences nervous breakdowns through the pandemic and the Trump administration.

It’s cold here. It’s Iowa Cold. Thankfully this morning when I got out of bed in my more than irritable mood, I realized I was feeling the same way I did for 55+ winters in Iowa. Mentally combining that with quarantining a year in the house….my CABIN FEVER is now in overdrive. There are seriously only a certain number of Words with Friends…actually strangers….games you can play in a day so I learned how to play backgammon. But it’s just not the same as what I had dreamed it would be…sitting in a pub in Grantchester playing the Vicar over a round of pints.

My Word for the year is “nurture”. Not feeling it today…Not a whole lot of positive going on right now….my benevolence has frozen over!

Someone make me laugh?!?!?

  1. I’m with you on the tearing-my-hair-out cabin fever. My doctor has had me in covid prevention jail for so many months I’ve lost track.
    KCMO’s wind chill is -5° at this moment. A joke? What’s blue and white all over?
    Me after taking my Molly out to potty. That’s as good as it gets I’m afraid.

  2. It’s so freaking cold!! It’s garbage day here and I am not happy about it at all.
    I am so bad at backgammon, no strategy at all, just random moves to match the rolls. 🙂

    • When playing with the computer, I recognized the computer’s strategy and tried to imitate it. Phil and I play together often using the iPads…the lighting up of the possibilities helps…not ready to do a regular old board yet!
