Surviving Quarantine

At this stage hopefully you recognize that Covid-19 has never stopped. It’s still here and we should all be continuing to practice all we’ve been told. My heroes are Dr. Fauci and the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo. They do not sugar coat the news. Not trying to sound high and mighty but there you have it.

While stuck at home you have probably done all the stuff you were putting off like cleaning out closets, writing your passwords in a separate book so you don’t have to keep looking them up and cloroxed everything that isn’t nailed down. If you had a home project you had intended to do and haven’t done it then you’re probably never going to do it. Be honest with yourself and cross that one off the list. Maybe you’ve needlepointed the whole house! (I’m close) Some have done a lot of workouts with the tv. I didn’t say I had.

If you had to home school your children, big or small, hats off to you. I’m not sure I would have been able to pull that off. And if you and your partner had to do some tricky planning regarding who goes to work and who stays home and manages the kids then you are superstars.

You may have started to notice that the glass is not really half empty. A smile from a random stranger can make your day. People have been holding the door open for each other. Everyone is friendlier. The people who bring groceries to your car and people delivering take-out are super nice. Some people have connected with old friends, with surprising results! Some mending of fences has occurred in families, always a good thing. Find something to do that makes you happy.
