Self-isolation status report: The song remains the same

My self-isolation because of COVID-19 drags on another week. I hit a hard stop on Easter and didn’t do very much all day. I woke up today feeling more settled and relaxed to meet the new workweek.

Here’s a peek into how things are going for me:

  • I watched Tom Cruise in Cocktail and wonder if I’m regressing into 80s movies and TV for entertainment the longer this shutdown drags on. After all, I did binge watch Spenser for Hire.
  • My days are beginning to bleed together, meaning I’m depending a lot more on reminders on my iPhone and iPad.
  • Easter in isolation for me meant crabcakes from the Crabcake Factory that I ordered online before the shutdown, which was a small bright spot.
  • I want to enjoy cooking more, but ordering from Amazon or Instacart is like playing the slots.

As I keep thinking, this is a marathon, not a sprint…

How are things going for you?
