I’ve never been one to sugar-coat anything. Anyone can tell what I am feeling just by looking at my face. Well, this past week has not been an easy one. These “safer at home” orders are so necessary and in my head, I am all for it. But my body is physically showing signs of distress. Not sleeping. Antsy. Motivation to do anything? Non-existent. To say that I have cabin fever would be an understatement. Plus, I am so pale right now. Like, Edward Cullen pale.
BUT, we celebrated my husband’s birthday this past Saturday so that was good. We had some takeout and took a drive.
Hopefully we will watch the church service online. Last week, although we had good intentions to do so, our plans changed and we ended up watching the service mid-week. Still planning to meet with my high school group later this morning.
It’s May. Unbelievable.
My daughter signed up to take a tap class online. It’s taught by an instructor we know so she is happy to practice dance while getting some physical activity in.
Much of this week will be spent pondering which schools she will apply for. Can you believe that “the girl” will be applying to colleges this fall? Also, when you apply to schools for musical theatre, you almost always have to have a coach of some sort to assist you with auditions and the like. If you have any experience in that area, let me know. In this new world we are living in, I have no idea how fall will be impacted. I already know that most schools are not requiring the SAT for admittance since they can’t take it now.
I am finishing up Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult. If this book sounds familiar it’s because I was reading it last weekend too. Again, distraction is a beast.
After it, I am reading Make Your Home Among Strangers by Jeanine Capó Crucet for a book discussion later this month.
I finished all those Harlan Coben shows on Netflix and they were just what I needed. Now, based on how much I enjoyed those my friends gave me a list of shows to try next. I think we might go with Broadchurch.
New Things I’ve Tried:
Haven’t really tried anything new but I’ve never ordered furniture online before and we need a new set of couches for the family room so that might be happening.
- Sunny, not too warm weather.
- Time to do little things like paint the cabinet that has been peeling for ages.
- Sounds silly but soap and water. Spending some time cleaning and it feels good.
Let’s all check in with one another. Are we good? We are, but to be honest with you all, I am getting tired of the entitled who demand that beaches open. I love the beach too! Love it! But the protests are ridiculous. It’s not about the beach. It’s political. I don’t want to start safer at home orders all over again.
