My plan has been to do a daily diary and update except for Saturday and make Sunday be a weekend update. Not sure why since all the days kinda flow together. Either way, last night was a fail.
This morning, my friends, I had a glass of milk and some hershey's kisses for breakfast. For lunch? Pig in blanket appetizers and a V8. Such as been my day. Good thing thing that this evening I had beef vegetable soup and rolls. I can say I got a modicum of fresh healthy things in my system even with no exercise.
I chatted with my brother for awhile today, partially about landlord/tenant stuff (He's waiving rent, which doesn't matter a bit to me but does to the two unemployed roomates) and partly about how we are each surviving in our worlds of the moment. He actually said last week he had brief panic issue (he is not even going to the store, like myself), which was a small shock to me. My brother is one of those people who is always happy at home and in the yard-to the point that I have been wanting to write a happy at home article using him as an example. I'm sure part if it's psychological. You don't care about leaving if you can leave whenever you want, ya know?
I also spoke briefly with a couple of my Divas today. Both were feeling very hemmed in, so I may do that Zoom coffee and conversation or happy hour. I may even create a Facebook group attached to my meetup group just for the purpose of chatting and sharing photos. Who knows.
One of my sanity-saving graces these days is my church, I gotta say. Not only are they streaming a Sunday service through Facebook where we can comment to each other, share the peace and prayers, they also have a Monday through Friday morning prayer, a Thursday night prayer and a Sunday afternoon Zoom circle (which I have yet to join in). For the kids they have a story time at night, virtual youth group events and Sunday school. I'm looking forward to this support as we look to the week before Easter and Easter itself which is going to be difficult since this is a time of lots of community within the church.
Yesterday I did a half an hour of aerobics and a half an hour of weights afterwards, using the program below (I need an aerobic program that doesn't move me ten or twenty feet in each direction with my downsized home). Today I did nada. Tomorrow I will again do the aerobic activity and standing and sitting leg exercises including sitting and standing over and over. I need to eat more healthy than today and exercise in some way most days, but I have decided this is not the time to obsess about anything else. I'm dressing in regular clothes every day and they fit. Other than that..........another thing for another time.
This morning I did a quick inventory of what is on hand. Protein wise we are probably good through the week but no more, so I am slowly starting with various delivery platforms see to how much of what I order I get, what their turn around time is and so on, because I'm not going to a store. My brother ordered from Whole Foods the other day, getting some meat and mainly fresh stuff and they had good success. They also did a liquor order of wine, Bailey's, Tequila and Grand Marnier. I think they are settlee in for the long haul.
Unless something changes, my son is taking PTO for fourteen days starting today to both protect himself with health history as well as his roomates. He won't last more than fourteen days though and then he will return to the restaurant. Hopefully by then Colorado, which is unfortunately ahead of much of the country will have reached it's peak.
To get myself in the Texas mode, today in addition to reading and knitting (and ordering that white chair) I finalized my clothing inventory and made a list of needs (very short) and wants (pretty short as well, mainly in the accessory area), based on my future living arrangements and lifestyle. Since I am documenting everything these days, that will go as a page up on the top as well pretty soon.
Tomorrow I have decided I will pamper myself as bit between overgrown hair, past due toenails and hands that are a mess from washing, washing, washing.
