Of course, I know what day it is.
The 327th day of March.
Alright, it’s the 30th and so far, LilDude is on his second week of distance schooling. He woke up at 10 A.M. only to tell me he needed to sleep in. Since I was in the middle of doing post-production on what was supposed to be a Facebook Live video, I let him and proceeded to finish editing the 1:30 minute clip, post it, and then get him ready for “school.”
School is all done on the laptop through Google from Google Classroom to Google Meeting. From 11:00 to 12 noon, LilDude had breakfast and did his work, then played from noon to about 12:30 when he made himself a PB&J sandwich and got us both snacks and juice and we settled for a spot outside the garden to have lunch before doing another round of homework. Then I decided to set up the beach tent canopy thing and I think that’s where we’ll be doing his classwork from here on especially if the weather is great like it was today.
I don’t know about you but #Quarantinelife has been strange. I’ve baked, gardened, even sewed four face masks and a seat cover, and it seems like laundry and dishes are endless. By the time I sit down to write, my mind is blank — and that’s why I have to outline just so I can remember what I want to write from one moment to the next. Maybe it’s a result of the anxiety that comes with Covid-19. I hope I can find my normal soon though because it often feels like I’m living in an alternate universe.
Heck, maybe we all are!
I wish I can remember to write a diary so I can write down my thoughts. Definitely my anxieties which can change from day to day. Yesterday it was my teeth (crap, do I need to see a dentist now?) and today it’s my back that’s hurting after sitting on the floor while transferring crushed styrofoam popcorn from the bean bag to the trash bag even though I’ve got nothing to fill the empty bean bag with. And then there’s my sleep. I’m not sleeping too well. It doesn’t help that I watch shows like War of the Worlds on Epix right before bed.
In the meantime, my gray roots are showing and while I can do them myself, there’s no point right now since it’s not like I am going out. I am doing videos though, like the one I did this morning so maybe I should color my grays, right? At least, now I have all the time in the world to play with all the apps I’ve bought through the years and use them in post-production!
What about you? How’s #quarantinelife treating you and your family?
