Hey there, phase 2 I see you

My local area enters phase 2 of reopening tomorrow which feels good. It’ll feel good to go back to my gym and be able to get out more. 

While my job will remain primarily home-based, it’ll be nice to go out to lunch and to get a long-overdue haircut. It also means I’m going on vacation later this summer and be able to put my feet in the sand, eat crabcakes, and repeat.

Self-isolation Sunday not so fun day

So it’s Sunday (or so my iPhone tells me) and my days continue to bleed together. I’ve come up with a weekend schedule where I work on house projects in the morning and then pursue personal writing projects and reading in the afternoons and evenings.

Here’s how I spent my Sunday:

  • I stayed up late last night to finish reading Whistleblower by Susan Fowler
  • I continued working on my basement so I can begin sorting through a large collection of print books I own
  • Reorganized my pandemic food and supplies so I know what I have and can avoid a grocery store trip this week and hopefully next as experts expect things to take a turn in my area.
  • Picked up my pace on some personal writing work

Tomorrow, begins week 4 of social isolation. Let’s hope life gets back to normal before too long?

Self isolation Saturday: Episode #3

Well, it’s another Saturday in social isolation. I have a break today from TechTarget writing assignments so I spent the day working on some house projects and personal writing that have become victims of my procrastination over the past few months.

Here’s how I spent my Saturday:

  • I ran an errand to the post office to mail something to my Mother. So I got to mask up again. There was no crowd in the post office so it didn’t have the same slightly dystopian feel of my supply run to the grocery store the day before.
  • I spent some time on some personal writing projects and still wish I could be more productive on such personal projects where I don’t have a firm deadline driving me.
  • I watched Grosse Pointe Blank thanks to Amazon Video. It’s a fun movie from 1997.

I miss not being able to go to the gym on Saturday mornings. Even if I have an article to write on Saturdays, I would go some place like Caboose Commons to write. I could do neither of these activities today. However, I must remind myself to be thankful for everything I have right now.

Tomorrow, I continue my attack on some overdue basement projects!
