So all these things are converging.

The air quality is very, very bad here right now. Jan told me that there were some local fires here in town that were started by arson and she left to a friend’s house with better HEPA filters for her asthma. I can’t blame her. It is smokey even inside the house right now.

So I was thinking of trying to take the girls away for the weekend to somewhere with better air quality. It looks like we would have to go on the other side of the mountain range. Travelling east and a little south of here. Looks like a town called Burns has good air quality right now but it also looks like it’s just a little gas station town in the middle of nowhere. Definitely no Airbnb’s there.

My liver is acting up a tiny bit, although I’m not in as much pain as I had been. I wonder if it’s the stress from the pain, the air quality or a combination of both that’s aggravated my liver some.

Then those visions from the chief keep telling me I need to get to the burial grounds. The feeling of needing to go is getting more and more intense. Although I don’t have any logical explanation for why I need to be there or what I’m meant to do. I just know I need to go. It’s not unsettling as much as it is very curious.

So the question comes in. Would it be completely irresponsible to take the girls to Ohio for the weekend? For starters traveling last minute is expensive, let alone flights for 4 people. Then traveling in the middle of a pandemic. My finances aren’t in a spot to absorb such a cost easily. It will burn through a lot of my emergency funds.

And I have some roof shingles that seem to be falling apart. I really should look into that before rain season sets in. That’s an expense I am not sure I can even cover. I’ll have to look at my home warranty and insurance information. I don’t even know where to begin to tackle that issue. Which seems more tangible and logical than the whole Ohio thing.

But that doesn’t answer the where to go or what to do this weekend issue. Buy an indoor air filter I suppose. But they are all sold out. The soonest I can get one through Amazon is Sunday. And none seem available locally. Like none, zero. I’ve checked everywhere.

Right now I have the humidifier blowing air with a tiny bit of H2O2 to add a small amount of oxygen into the air. It helps but an air purifier would be ideal.

Realistically, my budget is saying the best option is the Amazon Sunday delivery and wait it out.

This year just gets curiouser and curiouser. Doesn’t it?
