I don’t know about you, but I’m not baking bread from scratch or learning a new language during this quarantine.
No, I’m having my okay-est quarantine life here in Michigan, where we’ve been under a “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order since March 15.
Here’s what I’ve “accomplished”:
I finished Tiger King on Netflix. Very entertaining. Very weird.
I cleaned out half of the top shelf in the spare bedroom closet. Don’t be jealous that I cleaned out half of it.
I’ve worked from home every Monday-Friday. And I’ve actually worked.
I’ve gone for a walk in my neighborhood most nights, usually with my husband.
I’ve grown bored looking at the same houses in my neighborhood over and over. I might have grown bored looking at the same man over and over, too.
I’ve ordered lots of stuff online. So much stuff that I can’t remember what’s coming until I check my bank account. And it’s so random. One day it’s a book. The next day it’s ramen noodles or glue sticks.
I spent time trying to make a homemade mask before I gave up and ordered some online. I’m good at ordering things online.
My family and I finished a puzzle. That was actually fun.
I’ve eaten a lot of meals.
I’ve snacked a lot between a lot of meals.
I’ve done a lot of indoor workouts because I’ve eaten and snacked a lot.
I celebrated a major holiday. (Happy belated Easter!)
I reached out to some older neighbors that I hadn’t seen in a while. Turns out they are happy and healthy, just hunkering down. I’m pretty sure they are getting better groceries delivered than I am.
I’ve loved my family.
I’ve become annoyed by my family.
And I’ve talked a lot to my cats.
But at the end of each day at least I am still here and I am very lucky to have my family and a nice place to stay at home. A huge shout out of thanks to the healthcare workers, first responders, and every body who helps with my grocery pickup. I mean it!
How’s your quarantine life going?
