Instead of thinking about all the things going wrong right now I figured I would take a little time to look at the good things going on in my life, and count my blessings as it were. Since happiness is a state of mind which is largely under our control I have found that thinking about good things makes the bad things a little easier to deal with. So here are six things that's making my life a little better right now.
1---- The first thing that made me feel better is the new medicines that are coming out soon, and especially the hydroxyChloroquine thing that's being used in hospitals right now and by all indications is working great. I've looked at a lot of doctors reporting on the Internet about the hydroxyChloroquine and every one of them is either cautiously optimistic or saying it's a game changer in the fight against Covid.
2----- One of the people that's in President Trump's press conferences every day, and I believe she's a doctor, said that all the information is showing that only a tiny percentage of young children are getting the virus. And I believe she said there is only one known young person dying from the virus. That took more than a little worry off of me about my grandkids, because through this whole ordeal they have been one of my biggest concerns.
3---- I think a lot about living in a smaller RV because there's so many good things about living lighter and smaller but this is one time that I'm really glad I'm in a 30 foot fifth wheel and have a refrigerator big enough to actually stock up on some things. Yes I could self-isolate in something a lot smaller but I think it would be more difficult both mentally and physically, the Arctic Fox gives me room to walk around and that makes my self-isolated life feel more normal.
4---- There's no Covid in the County where I'm at. To be more accurate, there's no KNOWN Covid, but as we all know that can change rapidly but at least for the time being it makes me feel a little better.
5---- So far it doesn't look like the government is going to close the LTVA's where I'm at since they close anyway the middle of April. This takes a big load off my mind knowing I've got a nice place to stay with the basics of life that I need available, and it's a place that I'm familiar with and enjoy living.
6---- And last but not least, since I stocked up on things weeks ago before there were shortages I have plenty of toilet paper.
I found out what's going on with the overflowing dumpsters at the LTVA's. Apparently in the governments infinite wisdom they pre-paid the trash company for getting rid of the trash this season, and since the company was already paid they do as little as possible to keep up with the LTVA's trash. I expect in another week you won't be able to see the dumpsters.
