Sunday Not-So-Scaries: April 26

Are the weeks just blending together anymore? Sure feels like it. On the bright side, I’ve finally found an at-home daily routine that’s added more structure to my days. I generally go to sleep at wake up around the same time now and squeeze in a short at-home workout and a walk before work if I can. It’s not much but it does help. In addition to my new schedule, I’ve sprinkled in a few things while at home to make the days a little brighter.

National Library Week 2020

When I was a kid, my mom would take us to the library once a week or so to pick out a new book to read. It’s a memory I cherish and I think about it every time I step foot in the library. It’s been odd not to be able to do that recently, but the library is still alive and well — digitally!

Sunday Not-So-Scaries: April 19

I’ve honestly lost track of how many Sundays it’s been since I’ve been inside. I want to say I’m on week six, but I’ve stopped counting. It’s starting to feel a little bit normal, which is weird. But, I’m thankful I can be cozy at home even when it doesn’t always feel great. Here’s a few things that are helping me trudge along during this strange time.

A Reprieve

It’s been about a month since I’ve posted last and I figured I should just check in. Much like the rest of you, I’m sure, the current state of the world has impacted my daily life quite a bit. Thankfully, it hasn’t impacted me in a serious way — my health is good and my family are safe, and my heart is with everyone who is facing hard times right now. Last week marked a month of being home, and I’m just doing my best to make this feel normal. Some days are better than others. In fact, there’s always exactly one day during the week where I find the energy to exercise with the free weights I have. It is what it is.
