Once again, I come bearing a Weekly Wrap that…very much does not feel like it’s a Weekly Wrap. Has it really been a week since I last brought you one of these? Could it be that the passage of time is still continuous? I’m not convinced.
Life Beyond the Blog
All I can think about is that my manager has asked me to return to work. We’re curbside only at this point, and I wouldn’t even be working that part of things. Instead, I’m due to stock the shelves and simply put together orders as they come into our system. It involves truly minimal content, and the parts of my job that don’t exacerbate the issues with my mental health. I’m still anxious, but I also need the money. Not that they’re paying me much extra, but still. Some pay is better than no pay right now.
I suppose other than that, though, yesterday saw snow on the ground again, which I’m not a fan of, and I spent most of Wednesday and Thursday watching Psych. USA is going through two seasons of it a week, and it’s probably one of the most entertaining quarantine busters I’ve got. Around that, I also discovered that Leverage is available for free streaming via IMDb TV right now, which is deeply satisfying. Why yes, I do want to watch a show about thieves screwing over corporations and rich people in favor of helping folks who don’t have the resources to help themselves!
(I’ve watched almost all of the first two seasons so far, and I’m upset I have to go back to work before finishing the entire series. A tragedy.)
Otherwise? I’ve got nothing. Time feels all bendy and weird, and my motivation is nowhere to be found. It’s probably hanging out with everyone else’s motivation, somewhere we can’t find it. Let it stare there, tbh. It deserves the vacation.

The Week Ahead
As of this moment, I don’t know what next week looks like. After all, this week had sudden snow and my manager asking me to come back in to work and some ups and downs with the mail. Obviously, the universe is spiraling well out of my control, and here I thought I had such a good handle on it! Maybe I’ll end up working most of the week. Maybe I’ll only be in for a couple days, and home the rest. I have no clue what’s on the horizon, not even a little.
Maybe that should be scary, but at this point, I’m getting used to playing it by ear. Nothing is proceeding as normal right now, and I’m starting to expect that. It’s…weirdly effective at curbing some of my anxiety. Not sure how I feel about that, truth be told.
Anyhow, we’ll just have to see how it all pans out. Who knows! Maybe I’ll even accomplish something and startle us all…
And that’s it for this week. Hope you’re all staying home and staying safe. 💛
