My mind is so scattered these days. I've started posts several times and left them unfinished which is rare for me. I love working from home and don't usually have a problem keeping to my schedule but I'm finding it really hard these days. I just can't focus.

Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne dead at 52. I remember when California Sex Lawyer was Owen's favorite song. He must've been 6 or 7. I remember him playing it for my Mom and as she exclaimed over it for him she gave me a sideways look as if to say, "California Sex Lawyer?" Still makes me giggle. Owen's always had the pop gene, the pop ear.

Leo and I went to the grocery store and then I think perhaps we shouldn't have. I don't know. I'm trying to start doing more online orders. For some reason I find it very hard.

We hit Schnuck's but found no flour, no yeast, no ramen, no Nishiki rice, no toilet paper, no paper towels. We went over to GFS and got paper towel, toilet paper, a 2 lb package of cheap yeast but passed on the 25 lb bag of flour. No Nishiki rice, no ramen. Ernie needs his ramen. I guess I could send Owen out elsewhere today. Maybe one of the Asian markets?

Last night we decided to order out. It was the first time in quite some time. We called three of our favorite Chinese restaurants and all were closed. We settled for Papa Del's. We put a big tip on the order and they left it on our porch.

Strange, strange times. I can't imagine what the future holds.

On the other hand, there is this.

  1. That is great! Owen is real good and house looks beautiful. Not a bad place to be quarantined. Keep washing your hands, Owen and playing for your Dad. xoxo

  2. Your sons sound like real sweethearts. My son Andrew keeps in touch but I’m here alone with the dogs😂💕😩. Don’t know what I’d do without these fur babies! Thinking of you and wishing you well. We are Voelkl Women…strong to the core! Keep on keeping on!

  3. Cynthia that little pick me up concert really picked me right up. Despite all the hardships you suffer, from here it looks like you lead a charmed life.
