so physically, i'm feeling much more normal today. it's possible i got off cycle on my meds and ended up overlapping more than i should have, particularly the BP meds, which are fairly strong. basically, i forgot to take meds until 3pm one day, when i usually take them at 8:30am, which meant the next morning's normal dose was overlapped by a double-digit percentage – which probably produced weird feelings in my body, which i then immediately ascribed to covid.

and there is that lady the other day walking through the take-out joint with no mask, coughing into the open air, though i think i stayed clear; but your mind goes there. then you get out of sync on your meds and slightly overdose, then you feel weird, and the next thing you know, you're wondering if your will is up to date.

been trying to get away from that kind of thing, like barely watching the news (i watch the chive instead), definitely not looking at covid statistics, and only going out when i have to; now there's not one but two hurricanes bearing down on us, so i am packing my hurricane bags today: one backpack with three laptops, adapters, network switch, associated cables, etc; one small day-bag with clothes for 2-3 days, toiletries, and medicine; one larger rolling suitcase with more clothes; and a picnic pack i scored at goodwill, which has everything to set a table, a large water bottle on the side, and an insulated comparment for food.

i need to clean that picnic pack, but i'm going to put my pouch tuna, beef jerky, nuts, and small trail soup bags in there, plus quite a few cans of diet pepsi, so i'll have my own food for a few days, just in case, so i won't be a burden if i end up staying with someone. after all, if these two storms merge into some kind of superstorm, it could be really bad here, worse than katrina.

since 2020 has been a dumpster fire so far, why would i expect any less?

just waiting on my wife to wake up from sleeping off yesterday's nursing shift, not doing anything remotely noisy until then.
