Pandemic Prepared: My COVID-19 Pandemic Diary

Pandemic Prepared: My COVID-19 Pandemic Diary

Pandemic Diary
Just bought a bunch of supplies from Walmart:  Lysol, 91% isopropyl alcohol and toilet paper.

I order from Walmart so often that I decided to join their Walmart+ program.  Free (and faster) shipping, special discounts and other very nice perks.  There was a Walmart+ new signup promotion so I am paying an introductory $9.99 per month to be a Walmart VIP.

I live in a house with 3 strangers and 2 relatives.  My aunt, and her 22-year-old son, both got COVID last year, and both recovered.  I don't have it, and I never contracted it. So both of my housemate relatives have beautiful antibodies coursing through their bodies.  I don't.  Moreover, since I have a long history of bad reactions to vaccines. I am not inoculated. 

So I am quite obsessed with keeping everything -- and I mean everything -- 100% germ-free.  I spray / wipe doorknobs, refrigerators (we have 2 here), toilet seats, toilet bowls, faucets,  desks, chairs, tables, etc.  If I make any kind of contact with it, it suffers the full brunt of my germicidal ways, all day, every day.

My mother was taken by COVID early last year.  It was fast.  From diagnosis to death took 5 days.  She was in East Africa at the time.


What makes me really mad is that all too many are not taking this pandemic seriously.

I attended my nephew's wedding a few weeks ago.  Not only did I wear a mask, I also brought a brand new box of masks as backups, and to give away to anyone in need.

Out of all who attended, only 2 people wore a mask: me, and one other guest.  Some guests even looked at me like I was being ridiculous.  Yup.


And here's another reason why I shop at Walmart.com so often: I earn free gift cards in return for using the Microsoft Bing search engine.  I make my living online, and I'm searching all the time, so this is simply perfect for me.
