I love New Jersey’s official Twitter account right now for reminding me what day it is. Never have I felt caught in a loop of endless days – well, not counting that annual week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Prior to the shutdowns, my husband and I basically only saw each other on the weekends. I always looked forward to Saturdays because it meant the work week was over, but also because Tom and I would get to spend some time together. Usually we would go out with friends, head to a local bar or restaurant, go to a movie, I can’t go on or I’ll get weepy about the outside world.
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.
