Tuesday was the first day of four scheduled days of on and off showers. Maybe some full-on rain too if I'm unlucky. I try to line up some indoor projects to keep from going nut-so being inside all that time. I have lots of reading material also. But it gives me time to think and my thoughts turn to those who confine themselves inside almost everyday rain or shine! Here are three close by us.
This lady is in a minivan with her little ankle-biter dog. She's a heavy-set woman so I can somewhat understand her sitting inside all of the time except for the occasional moments I see her outside so her doggy can do his business. The car is gone at every so often so she does go into town now and then. Otherwise she's always sitting in the driver's seat.
Then there is this guy. He's not going anywhere. He has a flat tire. His car is packed to the roof with who knows what. There's just enough room for him to recline in the back on the driver's side. He is in there all day long and this has been for at least the week we've been at this new site so I don't know how long he's really been here parked like this. He has the long term sticker on his window so its safe to say he's been here all winter...reclining inside his car...every day.
Finally there is this lady. I've seen her outside the car maybe twice rearranging stuff. I don't think the car has left that spot in the week we've been here. All the windows are blocked off to the sun and privacy. She can't see out. Think about how small it is inside and being in there every hour of the day and night. Seriously, you could put this woman in solitary confinement and it'd be like a vacation to her. How do these people do it?
Beans and I have 126 square feet of living space.
Cabin fever starts to set in after the first day of confinement.
