How is everyone doing on week two of coronacrazy? I have settled into a good daily routine that keeps me mostly sane. Working from home is significantly harder when you have a little one running around and out of sorts because she misses her teachers and friends. I figured I would hop on the What’s Up Wednesday train this month!
Eating: Chicken. Lots and lots of chicken. It is all our grocery store had when we placed our Shipt order. I am thankful to have any meat at all, so I am not complaining. Its just….chicken gets old after several days of it. No matter how different you “fix” it.
What I haven’t tired of? My spinach, goat cheese and apple salads I eat for lunch every day. Delicious!!! I usually pair it with a couple olives, handful of nuts and a few cream cheese stuffed salami roll ups.
Reminiscing: Places. Any place. I think when this is over, we can all agree that we take every day life for granted way more than we should. It is a privilege to walk around TJ Maxx, Target, the drugstore. To be able to walk into a restaurant and meet up with a group of friends and share laughs over chips and salsa. To wander around the zoo and watch your child light up in amazement. To simply have a play date with a friend on a slow weekend.
Loving: Being in my home office every day has inspired me to get this place in order and decorated. Really it is just a desk and a landing place for random items currently. Including Zoe’s bounce house, which is crucial in times like these…but hopefully not a permanent fixture in here.
I really want to paint the back wall navy, and use coral and gold as accents throughout the space. I am having a hard time deciding what to paint the other three walls though. Suggestions? I am not 100% sold yet.
Been Up To: Pretty much what everyone is up to these days. Traveling around our house, bouncing between the living room, kitchen, Zoe’s room, our yard on nice days. Zoe and I have really taken advantage of the nice weather and have been walking/running around our neighborhood at least daily, sometimes more. I have hit my move and exercise goals every single day.
Dreading: The long term effects that the coronavirus is going to put on our economy, our lives, the small businesses. I have so much anxiety surrounding all of this.
Working On: I have a few things in the works that I have been wanting to do for a long time. Even with more time at home right now, it is hard to find the time and balance to really dedicate to everything. I think once I get the ball rolling though, it will all fall into place.
Excited: I am looking forward to Easter. Now that Zoe is a little older, we can have a fun egg hunt with her. I ordered some stuff from Target that should be coming in today to fill her eggs with. Luckily, I had started getting some dresses and stuff for her last month since we cant go out now to shop! I always get her a few swimsuits each year as well, since she has swim days at school, and we have a pool and water table for her at home.
Watching: While I figured we could get caught up on lots of TV during this time at home, that hasn’t been the case! We are caught up on The Good Doctor, The Resident and Bluebloods right now. We haven’t even watched a single Grey’s since December. We need a good binge day!!!
Reading: What You Wish For by Katherine Center (ARC from Netgalley, will come out in July)
Playing: Lots of Just Dance with Zoe! We play pretty much every day for at least 20-30 minutes. One of Zoe’s favorite songs to dance to on there is Old Towne Road. Last night when we were dancing she belted out “Can’t nobody tell me nothinnnnnnn” and I was like oh god, this is why she loves this song. That is her life motto!!!!
Wearing: I mean, let’s get real people. Is anyone wearing real pants??? Not over here! I change every day, but ummm its always athletic wear. I do wear a real bra, so there is that!
This Weekend: This weekend is more of the same I suppose. I ordered a gas can for our lawn mower, we didn’t bring the one from our old house. Hopefully I will be cutting grass Saturday. Excited for the workout!!! And getting our lawn looking super fly.
What are you up to?
