A case of the Mondays: COVID-19 edition

I wish I would have written down when my state shutdown because of COVID-19. While I remain thankful that I have a job and career that lets me work from home, It’s getting harder to track the days. I’m setting more reminders, referring to my calendar more, and at peace knowing that I can always ask Alexa what’s the date and time when I wake up.

Anyhow, I blew off this blog last week but for excellent reason. Work got busy. I also had a pitch hit in a new market and had to get writing. Then I had a TechTarget deadline for SearchCloudComputing. Writing is one thing that takes my mind off of being stuck at home because of COVID-19.

Here’s how my Monday went:

  • I woke up this morning and knew what day it was without having to ask Alexa, so I’ll take that as a win.
  • I had a productive Monday at work and made two deadlines.
  • I had the energy, and motivation to exercise before I ate dinner.
  • The governor of Virginia — a politician I can’t respect — alluded to the state might enter the first stage of opening up on May 15th and I hope to the heart of hearts he’s not playing around.

Along the way, my Pandemic beard is really growing in after a few weeks of not shaving. If only I could grow a man bun too, but I think that’s too much to hope for at my age. #JustKidding

How did Monday treat you?
