…… being quarantined.
These may be deep so prepare yourselves.
(Like with a high pair of boots.)
So, how’s everyone handling all of this free time? I know that it’s been isolating, frustrating, stressful and downright boring, but maybe we’re looking at it all wrong.
Instead of feeling trapped and “stuck” …… maybe we should consider this to be all of that magical, illusive amount of time we wanted to get ______ done (fill in the blank).
You know …… if I had all the time in the world I would read that stack of books on my nightstand.
Or …… I wish I had enough time to paint the house.
And …… if I had the time I’d cook more.
Bwah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!
Sorry, maybe that one was hilarious to only me.
So, we’ve had about 6 weeks or more of this kind of time. What have you done with it?
Did you learn anything?
Have you checked multiple things off of your To-Do List?
If so …… YOU are a MUCH better person that I am!!!
How is it that I’ve had an almost infinite amount of time and yet haven’t accomplished much?
Here’s a list of things I intended to do (please note: some items were added before the pandemic):
1. Knit a blanket.
2. Knit a mat out of plastic bags.
3. Learn calligraphy/brush lettering.
4. Finish some books.
(Yes, “finish” implies they’ve been started. Yes, all of them.)
5. Tile a tiny bathroom floor.
6. Teach my dog to stop following me EVERYWHERE I go.
7. Finish the illustrated Harry Potter books. (See #4)
8. Start a doodling journal.
9. Go to Spain, Portugal and Italy.
No, not all at once. Italy was going to be 2 weeks after Spain.
10. Learn Portuguese. (See #8. And yesterday’s blog.)
11. Tan my legs.
(You may need sunglasses for this picture.)
12. Blog more.
13. Teach J how to drive.
(That was just to see if you’re still playing attention.)
14. Help potty train E.
(Don’t even start.)
Yes, I realize that I ended on the number 14, which kind of freaks out those of you who are a bit OCD. Which reminds me ……
15. Throw people off balance more.
At least I’ve made some progress on THIS one.
Okay, now that you know how lazy I’ve been …… fess up.
