Social Distancing Day 7

Social Distancing Day 7, a whole week. I have to say it’s been the longest week with so many changes. Today I did some baking and then set up a more permanent office area. Looks like I’m going to be working from home longer than…

Social Distancing Day 6

Social Distancing Day 6 wasn’t terribly different from other Saturday’s. My husband went grocery shopping early this morning. Hitting up Aldis and Wegmans. He did FaceTime with me during his Wegmans trip. It was nice to get out of the house even if it was…

Social Distancing Day 5

Social Distancing Day 5

It’s social distancing day 5 and we made it through the first week. Here are a few thoughts from this week.

1. I actually don’t like wearing my yoga pants and a sweatshirt every day. Who knew? I for sure didn’t see that epiphany coming.

2. As much as I love being home, and let me assure you, it’s a lot, I don’t enjoy it as much when I have to stay home.

3. Watching too much news coverage makes me anxious. So I ended up changing the channel to the Andy Griffith show. Of course, it was a weird episode where some family wanted an arranged marriage between their adult granddaughter who already had a child and 10- year-old Opie. What the actual hell??!! Because they wouldn’t take no for an answer, Andy and Opie signed the contract and then Andy said some magical type words and the signatures disappeared. The family, scared Andy and Opie were witches, didn’t want witches as in-laws. But, they all stayed friends and sang songs together. All kinds of wrong!

4. I spend a lot of time watching Supernatural because demons, vampires, and leviathans are less scary than a global pandemic.

In other news, New York State is pretty much on lockdown. Almost as soon as the governor made the announcement, my husband received an email from work. Attached was a letter instructing every employee to print it out and carry with them in their car. The letter basically states that the company they work for is deemed essential and they are going to or from work. This way, in case you’re stopped and asked why you’re out, you have proof. So, ya, that’s a thing now.

Today I’m grateful for a husband who takes care of me when I’m sick and is a fantastic cook.

We made it through Social Distancing Day 4. We’ve settled into a routine, even our senior. We checked on him this morning and he was already working on school assignments. I ended up not working today and it was a nice break. I realized that…

Social Distancing Day 3 has been harder day. I’m really not feeling well and I’m not sleeping. I tell myself it’s just a nasty cold with a bad headache and cough. I feel the pressure to be all better because of everyone counting on me…
