Enter Sandman

Pantry Tuna Cauliflower Casserole
I married a pantry tuna noodle with a cauliflower mac and cheese idea to form this super easy Dump Casserole for Two.
The zombie apocalypse came to my apartment this night.  After a troubled morning, P went straight back to bed feeling fatigued with a big headache.  I waited all day for him to rise back up but it didn't happen. I thought the smell of something in the oven might coax him out.  I tiptoed in a few times to check and the bedroom was pitch black and cold as ice.  I got a little spooked because we had moved into the 'getting better' phase and this was a step backwards.  He went to the bathroom a few times so I knew he was alive but moved real slow and deliberate, like you do when you're injured.  Declined invitations to come out came in barely audible mumbles. Late night arrived and I set up a bed in the living room.  Around 2:30 I hear someone breathing through my earbuds.  Are you up Patrick?, I yell out in the dark.  Like something out of my nightmares, I turn my computer screen to see P sitting in a chair in the dark kind of hunched over.  I believe he was sleep walking but it's unclear really what happened.  His head was down and his eyes closed as he spoke whispery like the last time but after some effort I got him back in bed and he was able to eat and then eventually speak normally.  I still don't know if he was awake through any of it.  We may never know.  He awoke the next day refreshed and twice as better so we decided to ignore it for now, chalk it up to yet another COVID layer.

Coming through the COVID cloud, I find myself fuzzy and unable to process all that I've set aside for when I felt better.  Many tasks on my lists tend to become unnecessary with time.   I sort of remember questions that were important right before this shutdown hit.  I got the news I was furloughed somewhere in the middle of this virus and definitely put that down on the we'll get back to that shelf.  I still can't wrap my head around the vastness of this impact but that may be a crucial protective coating, so I'm not going to try until we're both much healthier.
