Being stuck at home really makes you thankful for all that you have, doesn’t it? Here are a few things that have really made me happy lately.
-If I have to be quarantined at home, I am so beyond grateful it is in this house. I cannot imagine being stuck in our old house for weeks. Here we have decent neighbors, that we say hello to from a safe 10 feet away. An amazing piece of land for plenty of ball, side walk chalk, bike riding, etc. Properly paved streets for walking and running. And an ample amount of interior space for all of us to spread out.
-My home office. Thanks to Chris, I have 4 monitors. It’s a pretty sweet set up.
-A full pantry. When shit started going south in Europe, I stocked up on canned beans and soup. It may not be much, but its stuff you cant find now.
-Time to focus on fitness. Since I am not rushing to commute anymore, I have more time for my morning workouts. And they are starting to pay off, I have officially hit the TWENTY POUND mark!!!! 20 LBS!!!! (20.7, actually.)
-Our patio! Zoe and I spent every afternoon last week back there. Me with a book, her with her water station. Even Mac came out and joined us!
-Endless TV and movies. Not that I have had much time, but we try to get in one show each evening after Zoe goes to bed. Zoe has watched Frozen 2 and Secret Life of Pets about a million times in the last week.
-Wine. God bless it!
-Pinterest. My recipe game is on fire. So is my homeschooling efforts. Wouldn’t be able to do that without good ol’ Pinterest!
-Comfy clothes. Haven’t worn real pants in over a week. Don’t miss them.
-A job I can work from home. Seriously, so so so so thankful for that.
-Coffee. I am home 24/7 with a 3 year old that don’t stop. Coffee makes me so happy.
-e-commerce – Wouldn’t be able to get anything if it wasn’t for online shopping. Could you imagine this quarantine 20 years ago?
omg 20 years ago was 2000. Let that sink in.
-Shipt. I placed our first order on Sunday. My shopper was amazing! She was constantly in contact with me throughout the store. Finding perfect substitutions for things that they didn’t have, stalking the employees who were restocking certain areas. She even called me at one point to tell me what cheeses they had. She had everything bagged just the way I would have put them on the conveyor belt. After she dropped off on my front porch, she texted me that it was a pleasure shopping for me and that she hoped my family had a wonderful and safe weekend.
-Memes. I think we all need the laughs. I will continue to share some in each post.
