How are all of you doing in these crazy times, as most of us are forced to remain home in order to stay safe and help stop the spread of the virus?
As a retired person and an introvert, the staying home more part isn't difficult, but the not going out to lunch or dinner and not seeing family/friends has been. Yes, we can still get takeout, but I've avoided ALL unnecessary trips outside of the house and, can't help wondering if the person who might be preparing takeout might unknowingly have the virus. We've canceled f/up doctors appointments, started having groceries delivered 2x a month, and hair/nail appointments are a thing of the past as well. (I'm seriously thinking that this may be the perfect time to stop coloring my hair and embrace my gray). Just when I thought I'd be reading more, I find it difficult to concentrate, reading 10-15 pages and then staring at the ceiling a lot. (I do have several reviews I've been working on). I am obsessed with the news (not a good thing, I know). I'm so happy we have pets to pamper and play with. The other day my daughter ran out of Tylenol and every place was out of stock, so we drove to her house and dropped it on her porch, waving to her and the girls from a distance. How sad is it that we can't even be with our own families (unless they are part of your family unit).
Typical Boring Day - I usually wake up by 6 a.m., have coffee, while we watch Morning Joe, then I make us breakfast (more coffee), check social media, do some chores, we go for a walk, have a snack/tea or light lunch while watching more news, check social media, watch our 401K's plunge, then we play cards/read/check in with friends/family or nap, think about preparing dinner, shower (sometimes this happens before breakfast), have dinner, some wine, watch a bit more tv and bed. Next day - repeat! Oh, and yes, I'm finding it difficult to sleep more than 5 hours most mights.
What's your typical day like in the midst of this pandemic?
