Day 28

Unlike the movie, 28 Days Later, day 28 of stay orders is pretty uneventful.  By now I am no longer glued to CNN/MSNBC 24 hours everyday all day.  I’ve gone back to diversifying my news sources.  I am listening to reliable podcasts, reading news papers (well, on my iPad), checking the CDC website for updates.

Last week I was watching CNN and realized the fact counter on the left side of the screen was actually a death count.  cnnWhen you see 22,000 deaths in the US, you wonder if that number justifies the extreme rules many us are adhering to.  There are parents second guessing their kid count, spouses looking at each other wondering what life without them would could be like.

Prior to COVID-19, my life was pretty full.  Family and career kept me busy most days.  Now I have an endless amount of time and no activities outside work.  As CPS case manager, I am an essential employee and still work both at home and occasionally I might have an excuse, I mean reason to leave the home.  This past weekend I officially finished all the things on my list on Netflix, Hulu, and my que on Apple TV.  I started crocheting and even took on the challenge of making a teddy bear.

Trust me the before looked better then the finished product.  Enter a caption

I sacrificed my health to make at least three Michael’s curbside pick runs.  My new project will be teaching myself Tunisian crotchet.

Then what?   What will happen over the next 28 days?  Will find ways to balance home and work better?  Will I find more productive tasks to fill my days?  Will I read the 75 books on my to read list?  I don’t know, but I will continue to appreciate the fact so far everyone in my circle is safe and healthy.

I am a wife, mother of three, caseworker, graduate student, PTO President and oh yeah I have a social life AND I am on my weight lost journey. Many of my friends are amazed that I am able to provide a home cook meal at least 6 nights a week. Over the years I have developed my expertise and want to share them with people and hopefully get feedback on how I can improve.
