This is challenging time for many of us. I just keep telling people how weird I feel. It feels good to be home and to live a simple life. It does. I think it’s hysterically funny that my word for 2020 is GATHER. I wanted to cut my schedule down to something more manageable and I think I’ve succeeded but I certainly didn’t expect it to go to this extreme. Some think we will be living this way for months.
We watched online church earlier in the week. Later, I meet with my high school group in a Zoom room. They wanted to try video this time. That means I need to actually do my hair.
The rest of the day will be doing much of what you are doing. I was wondering if taking my daughter for driving practice would be okay if we don’t stop anywhere. We are under a “safe at home” order.
I am working from home but online classes start at the university this week so I suspect it will be very busy. I’ve actually been swamped so I’m anticipating it getting much busier.
For the past two weeks, my reading has suffered and you know how well I was doing in that area. It was the combination of work craziness, a book I could not get into, and my need to keep checking news feeds. I simply could not focus, but I finally finished the one book and just picked up The Woman in the Dark. One of the students in my group dropped it off for me!
Oh man, The Walking Dead got really good.
The Crown, still good but kind of dark. Not as light and amusing.
New Things I’ve Tried:
On a supply run, I picked this up. Notice how it’s mostly gone. It’s so yummy.
- Being able to work from home
- A decent stocked pantry
- Extra time with the pup and girl (Hub still working)
- Friends who are staying behind with my son at school
It seems like the situation changes hourly. I feel pretty good one moment but then a little antsy the next. I’m glad I have you guys to connect with.
