So I was about to title my post “Terrific Tuesday” until I realized oh it’s Monday. Clearly, the quarantine calendar is messing with my mind. One would think I would know the day after Easter Sunday was Monday yet here I am enjoying my “terrific Tuesday.” Nonetheless, while I may not know what day it is today, today was a good day. Thankfully, I experience minimal trouble with the virtual schooling. It was a good day to teach. However, please knock on wood as there are plenty of hours in the day for this situation to still devolve. Albeit it as of know, my teaching record for the day is impeccable.
As I noted in my Saturday post, the only milk available at Target expired on 4/13. Goalielocks and the Mayor were complaining that I bought milk that about to expire. However, let the record show that as of this morning, both gallons of milk had already been drank. Fortunately, I was able to actually get a delivery on the schedule for Target today, so I took it. I am so grateful that I was able to get four more gallons of milk as this should keep me out of the grocery store until the weekend. Here’s to no week day grocery trips! There is, however, the chance that I may mistakenly go to the store on Friday thinking it was Saturday. Either way I’ll count it as a victory.
Easter was such a great holiday as weird as it was under these conditions. Nonetheless, Easter is a great time to evaluate one’s perspective on life and re-create oneself. Additionally, the additional time we all now have due to COVID-19 is a great opportunity to create the life that we desire. During this time at home, I’ve continued my exercise program, started learning Norwegian and signed up for an executive certificate through the FAU School of Business. Now I know what you’re thinking, I’m being obnoxious like Gwyneth Patrow here, but Duolingo is amazing and super accessible. In my defense, I have also spilled tortilla chips all over myself.
It’s also an exceedingly scary and isolating time. Thank god for my weighted blanket and lavender. In all due seriousness, its a great time to re-connect and connect with people in a way we haven’t done in years. Losing Michele last week cut like a knife and left me regretting not reaching out more often. Truly, it’s better to reach out than to regret not doing it. I have to admit I hate talking on the phone and usually prefer text. However, in the current social distancing environment, I really enjoy speaking with people on the phone and hearing their voices. Honestly, I feel like I’m back in the 1990s based on gas prices and the time I spend talking on the phone.
Here’s a list of our day’s activities:
*Reading To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf
*Studied and practiced Norwegian
*Watched Balthazar Season 1
*Week 8 BBG legs and glutes resistance workout
*Took Anakin, Maya and Athena on multiple walks
*Worked on Obedience Training with Anakin inside.
