Well, as I sit here on officially the first day of our “self isolation from school” (still in my pajamas way too late in the day) I find myself doing the one thing that makes me feel better…writing. I have always been someone who journals and have found that getting things off my chest onto paper really does help me process things. I am CERTAINLY no “writer” but I regularly blogged during other stressful times in my life and now I find myself wanting to do it again. I hope that my musings might entertain you or at the very least give you something to do – and most importantly give ME something to do.
As someone who loves my people and hates being isolated this might, just might, make me feel better…so play along OK?
So as soon as I found out that we were going to be self isolating I did what any normal I-crave-routine person would do, I made a schedule.
Perfectly normal…right?? I appropriately titled it “Isolation Schedule” and have very…normally… scheduled every minute of my day.
And in full Amy-like fashion to fill those minutes I also came up with a list of things that I would like to do while I am in isolation.
**Please note that in my desperate attempt to make a complete list I have put knitting on there twice, as well as games…apparently I love games. I realize that some of those items might take a bit longer than the current isolation time frame, like learning Spanish, but I AM a quick learner.**
First item…puzzles. I do love puzzles. It is the perfect thing for me to do during isolation because I don’t have time to do them when we aren’t bunkered down in our houses. So I ordered one off of Amazon and started it yesterday. However, within the first 10 minutes Moby, my dog, ended up with a piece in his mouth.
You can’t tell…right??
Well, of course, this cute boy is forgiven. However every time I have the box of pieces in my hands he sits and begs for one…ha ha.
I have not started learning a second language, but I’ll keep you updated on the rest.
Here are some things that are making me happy right now.
Also I enjoyed dancing to this Fitness Marshall video today. Maybe you need some blood moving too!! It’s kinda fun!!
So, friends let’s keep in touch. PLEASE save me from my isolation!!! In an attempt to facilitate this I have included a question of the day…let’s get together in a not so together way!!
Q.O.D. – What is on your “Isolation/Extra Time On My Hands” To Do List? What do you want to accomplish over this hiatus. Post your comments below…2 extra credit points for each comment you comment on (Just kidding Weston…this is just for fun)
AND A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO SOFIA HUFFINE!!! GIVE HER SOME LOVE TONIGHT!!
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…HAPPY BIRTH…(you got the rest)
Truth is…I miss everyone. Truth is…I am a little scared. Truth is…I am going to run out of sweatpants soon.
Love y’all more than I love my puzzle-piece-chewing dog!!
