Does This Pandemic Make My Butt Look Big?

11 September 2020

Here we are, 6 months into the Covid-19 Pandemic and it’s time to make a personal assessment of how we all have been affected by months and months of “new normal”.

I remember in the beginning of the shutdown, posting a picture in my April blog of the empty shelves in the grocery store.  I was shocked that such a thing could happen in our Country and worried a little bit about getting what I needed to feed my family…. ah, memories (pause for dramatic reflection)……

Turns out that was not a problem.  In fact, maybe I’ve had a little TOO MUCH of what I needed to feed my family!  Groceries are plentiful and cooking seems to be my new hobby now! I’ve worn a path in the floor from the refrigerator to the sink and I’ve worn the non-stick coating off my pots and pans.

What hasn’t been worn is the jeans I was wearing last March.

Does this Pandemic make my butt look big?  Probably, haha!  Nonetheless, I am safe, I am following guidelines and have adopted a new motto:  “Better well fed than dead!”

Are YOU spending MORE money at the grocery store and MORE time in the kitchen?

    You know, if you wrote a song “Does This Pandemic Make My Butt Look Big?” I bet it would be a BIG hit and live on forever. Shall we sing?

    I’m right there with y’all….apparently the term is “Quarantine 15” and I can vouch for that. However, better fed than dead as you so well phrased, I’ll not be losing the extra 15lbs just yet

    And yes, definitely spending more at the market!

    It isn’t
    the Pandemic, but the smoked filled toxic schmutz filtering through the air and keeping us inside to cook and eat our hearts out. Cleaning doesn’t meet those daily exercise requirements. So forward we go! Keep safe and be well. Keep your Excedrin close.c

    So close and yet so far. Miss seeing you. Forget about the lbs we are all in the same boat. Just hope it doesn’t sink.

    Are you okay with all the fires. We are getting some of your smoke.

    Hi Anne,

    Oh, this made me laugh out loud!! I think the song idea is great. Glad to hear you and family are safe from the fires.

    Praying to see you all soon!
