Last night the Hubs and I watched the 1995 Dustin Hoffman classic, Outbreak. Ya know, the one where Patrick Dempsey brings the Motaba-infected monkey to America and unwittingly begins an epidemic. Ah…Nothing like putting the kids to bed early just to eat popcorn and freak ourselves the eff out during Corona-Isolation…Romance at its finest. But…… Continue reading Why Are We Obsessed With Doomsday Movies During COVID-19?
We ran out of dog food today. I shopped at Giant Eagle last Friday and bought enough Spaghettios and Twinkies to last a lifetime but I forgot the freaking dog food.

This morning, I woke up sweating and convinced I contracted Coronavirus. Turns out, The Husband thought 77 was the perfect thermostat setting for Bunker Life. Yesterday morning, I made the scary trip to the grocery store to Doomsday-Prep. I’m not gonna lie – I was absolutely one of the yahoos with a ridiculous amount of…… Continue reading Coronavirus in Ohio: Doomsday Prepping, Bunker Life, and The Helpers
I know I joke an awful lot when it comes to serious issues. It’s a problem. Or maybe it’s a cure? I have always had a tendency to say the most inappropriate things at the wrong times. But hey, that’s just me. I feel better when I make a joke about something scary. It doesn’t…… Continue reading Coronavirus 3-Week-Long Spring Break in Ohio
