Hi everyone, We made it through the week of quarantine/shelter in place. Whatever, they’re calling it these days. I have never missed being outside in my life.
Currently, working from home (Teacher) and I am ready to completely log off. I am thankful for the digital advantageous, but it can never replace the social interaction of face to face. I miss sitting in a cafe or restaurant with my friends. I pray all of this ends very soon and put behind us the topic of coronavirus.
Although, I am much like everyone else keeping up with the latest news. Can’t much hide from them, as I’m consistently receiving notifications. I’ve had to limit myself from reading every article, tv news, and radio. We understand the virus is here roaming the country, but I don’t need to hear it 24/7. It’s ok to pull away from the news once in a while, at least for your sanity.
Today, I decided to get out of the house and get a couple of items. Crowds of people, long lines, and empty shelves, devastating. I felt anxiety starting to rise, so I focus on my breathing and the mission. Get what I need and get
the heck out of there. I should have coughed or sneezed, maybe it would have parted the lines like the Red Sea.
Hey, just trying to lighten the mood. Laugh a little!
Feels good to be home only to realize I need paper towel, lol! It’s not worth going to war over it. I can manage. Besides, I am my only roommate for now, so resources will last for quite a while. LOL!
Fun Fact: Before the severity of the coronavirus hit the US, I was thinking of signing up for a dating app. I was debating whether I should do the whole “online dating”. I’d asked 2 of my friends to help me, because I was so nervous and needed encouragement. Wouldn’t have figured, this virus would put a stop to that plan. Social distancing on a date, Umm, not sure if that would work. And meeting up with a stranger with the chance of possibly being exposed to the virus. Not worth the risk. (I firmly believe Godincidence). I feel God is telling me to wait and let Him handle it.
My weekend plans, so far being at home. Maybe do some spring cleaning, be
lazy proactive, maybe actually make soup, and visit my family. I’d wash my hair yesterday, so I think I’ll straighten it again either Saturday or Sunday. Hey, I’ve got time now. LOL! Oh, and I can be more present on the blogs now after work hours. YEA!
