Day 68. Week 10. Day 3. Stay Home Stay Safe. Safer at Home. I think today officially became just Stay Safe. I think. I’m not entirely sure. I’m also undecided as to how long to keep my daily count up. I do, however, know I can’t end on 68 haha. I’m going to need a good number. 75 maybe. Or maybe when salons open. We shall see. I’m just hoping there’s not a quarantine part 2 at this point. 1. These cuties are persevering through their last week of school. Which mean
Day 63. Week 9. Day 6. You’ll all be thrilled to know that I did not turn on my heater today. I may or may not have consumed a pot of hot coffee, but I did not turn on my heater. #successfulday 1. What’s in the cup you ask? 2. Oh…. ya, know…. Just over here trapping and freeing the most ginormous bumblebee ever. Basically saving the planet over here. #justsayin 3. Today the pager system and I parted ways. Does anyone still use pagers? We used to use them in the nurseries
Day 61. Week 9. Day 4. It felt like 91 today. And I loved it. 1. Got to visit with some friends this morning. They are coffee pros. I won in this scenario. #sogood 2. This little guy. He’s 4 now. When he was 2 I worked pretty hard at getting him to flex his muscles and loudly state, “Welcome to the gun show.” I was sitting on the couch today across from him and wouldn’t you know it…. All of a sudden, he showed me his muscles and said, “Welcome to the gun show.” What ca
Day 45. Week 7. Day 3. I was listening to a news station today and one of the show host joked…. “I can’t go to one of those zoom parties… because I’m afraid it’s going to be an intervention for me when I log on.” I don’t know why but I thought this was hilarious and then immediately thought about the How I Met Your Mother episodes with the giant recurring intervention sign. If I ever need an intervention… there better be a sign. #justsayin 1. I’m thankful for friends who le
Day 40. Week 6. Day 5. It rained for 40 days and 40 nights for Noah on the ark. The Israelites wandered in the desert for 40 years. Jesus fasted for 40 days and 40 nights before being tempted by Satan himself. I’m on day 40 of quarantine. If the above 3 statements aren't perspective I don’t know what is. 1. And on day 40 of quarantine, it was no makeup and hat kind of day. The temperature drop from 70 to 30 required that very little effort be put into this morning other tha
Day 35. Week 5. Day 7. As I sat down to write this this evening a spider crawled across the notebook next to me. There was screaming and then a mad dash to the kleenex box. And then more screaming when I couldn’t find it and had to move the notebook around. And then terror as it scurried away. Quick questioning as to whether I was going to sleep tonight if I didn’t find this thing. Saw it run across the floor. Jumped at it with the kleenex. And then total fear at trying
Day 25. Week 4. Day 4. It’s officially 8:02 and it is still daylight out. Also, I think my trees have leaves, actual leaves on them. I don’t know why but in my little world I really believe these things wouldn’t be happening if we are to be stuck in quarantine forever. So we're going to pretend that nature knows something we don’t and there is an end in sight. And for some reason The Hills are Alive with the Sound of Music is now stuck in my head. #soundofmusic 1. Got to
Day 21. Week 3. Day 7. WHO COULD USE A GOOD LAUGH TODAY? Me. I could. It’s snowing. Legit snowing. We’ve still got two more weeks of this. 15 days to be exact. Well, hopefully. Who knows? And Facebook was just super depressing today. I need to laugh… so let’s talk about some happy things! I have a new goal in life for when this is all over. I’m finding myself a senior men's coffee group and joining it. I see them at all the donut and coffee shops in the early morni
Day 20. Week 3. Day 6. Alexa tells me a joke every morning. Today’s gem…. A limbo champion walked into a bar. He immediately got disqualified. #haha #shesgotjokes 1. Alright, as promised. 20 years and opposite ends of the spectrum for hair color. You guys, cameras and filters have gotten so much better!! #blonde #black #seniorpicture #thenandnow 2. Big things happened in my life today. Today marks 1000 days that I have opened my Timehop app. I’m not saying I have comm
Day 18. Week 3. Day 4. Easter Sunday. Totally random facts today. I weirdly love Jurassic Park. (well, this one isn’t totally random, see #4). But seriously…. All of them. It’s like the one set of movies I can watch over and over again. And Jurassic World. Jurassic World too. Because dinosaurs and well... Chris Pratt. Mr. Pratt and dinosaurs is a pretty perfect combination. Also, I’ve never seen Star Wars. Any of them. I don’t know why but this seemed like the appro
Day 16. Week 3. Day 2. I feel like it’s important to note that it currently feels like 33 degrees outside. I don’t know about living in a socialism world, actually I definitely have thoughts on that, but I have no intention of ever talking politics here. (insert every stressed out emoji available here). A good political meme though. Well, I’m all about those. Anyway, I could go for some socialistic weather though. If we distributed our weather evenly…. Just a thought.
Day 15. Week 3. Day 1. And it appears that these quarantine posts just got extended another 21 days. #stayhomstaysafe You know those shirts at the tourist shops down south that say… "Grandma went to Florida and all she got me was this shirt"? I feel like we need shirts that say... I survived quarantine and __________. You fill in the blank however you want. Right now I’m thinking… Well, I didn’t write a book, but I also haven’t gained the quarantine 15... So there’s that.
Day 10. Week 2. Day 3. October is the 10th month. Dimes are 10 cents. A decade is 10 years. Crabs have 10 legs. Squids have 10 limbs. Hot dogs come in packs of 10 (not sure why since buns come in 8). Shrimp have 10 legs. Who knew?! Bowling has 10 pins. Humans have 10 fingers and 10 toes. Decagons have 10 sides. AND I HAVE BEEN IN MY HOUSE FOR 10 DAYS. 10 DAYS! I have not left my house in 10 days. But there’s an end in sight… well of quarantine. Not of this stay-at-home o
Seven Days. Day 7. One week. 168 hours. This might be the longest I’ve committed to anything in my life. Then again, does it count as commitment if it was forced on me?!? #nochoice #quarantined 1. I reset my call time on my phone last Thursday, March 26 at 3:37 pm. 7 days later on Wednesday, April 1st at 6:10pm... I have spent 22 hours and 26 minutes on the phone. You guys! That’s almost a whole 24 hour day! And that doesn’t even count google hangouts, zoom, facebook video
Day 3. Three days... Jesus rose from the dead after three days. Today, I put on jeans. I’m not comparing myself to Jesus, just pointing out that miraculous things happened in both of those day three scenarios. #miraclesdohappen #onthethirdday #day3 1. And guess what… I found out my house has a magic mirror. Not like “Mirror, Mirror on the wall” talk to me kind of mirror. I’m not crazy... #yet But like a “Hey… how you doin’... you look super skinny” kind of mirror. Whic
