So. I found this from 2018!
I did spend Sunday, January 19 ... doing a little reflection on my word .... Rediscover.
Thank you Jampss it was great to take a trip down memory lane through that thread. Celebrate me is something I still need to get better at thank you for the reminder..
I love this! I'm a little behind for January - the 16th is my birthdate - so I'm catching up today. My word for 2020 is Adapt - I'm still working my way around it. "Become adjusted to new conditions" is one of the definitions - I'm definitely doing that.
This is one of the things I REALLY should do!
oh yes! .. and today would be my day. I have been taking it easy this afternoon
My birthdate is the 30th and luckily January is my birthday. I think I will have a pedicure on Thursday and will be going out to family dinner. There will be no celebrate me day in February so will have to think of another day.
How's everyone doing with the pandemic happening? What ways are you taking care of yourself?
Daily walks (usually twice a day), reading more books, playing my video game (Animal Crossing), drinking lots of coffee from my new coffee machine that I bought myself.
I am pretty use to being house bound with DD living with us. So nothing really changed except the news and newspaper having nothing else to report except to re-hash virus info. Neighbors just cancelled their paper. We now only have two small sections. first section in minimal world news with two pages of sports. Second section is Virus info, Dear Abby and the comics.
Dh and I work from home so that hasn’t changed. DD says every day she misses work. I overheard her telling LC3 how she misses it SO MUCH but when the virus Is settled and work opens she probably will not want to go. lol
Jessica, Glad you like your Nespresso machine. I love mine and cut down going to Caribou by about 99%.
I read - A LOT! It's a wonderful escape during these times even if some of the fiction I read is worse than what is actually going on
Have you found anywhere to order the capsules besides the Nespresso website? I have to have the Vertuo model so have to use those capsules and so far have only been able to find them on the Nespresso website.
I read this topic headline and my first though was....THE WHOLE YEAR I'LL BE CELEBRATING ME!! LOL I've said this a couple times and I feel kinda bad sometimes admitting it, but I decided during this time to be a little selfish. It sounds horrible, but really I spend so much of my "Normal" life doing so much for others, I Just needed a break...to do me!!! I've gotten stuff done I wanted to do for so long and haven't, it's been amazing!!!!!!!!!! I mean I could of sewn mask and done some other stuff, but I CHOSE NOT TO!!!!! So I've worked on organizing some things I've wanted to do for 5 years. I worked on uploading photos from the past several years and printing 2500 photos (WHICH TAKES FOREVER)...and I've caught up on a couple shows. I've walked my dog daily..sometimes BOTH dogs. I've cooked meals for my husband every morning and lunch while he's working from home. I've spent more time with him and it's not been all bad. I have no idea how this summer will play out because everything I enjoy in the summer has been cancelled, but I guess I'll just do more ME!!! My word of the year is REVITALIZE..which means me, my home and some relationships. I'll just keep focusing on that!
I'm introverted so this time at home is just what I like. Life is much simpler and a lot less stressful for me. I've read more books than I ever thought possible. I've gotten some family history research done. I've been exercising and eating less. (I kept a pair a of jeans from 20 years ago as an incentive to lose weight. Food rationing seemed to be the incentive. I finally fit into them.) I started projects that I've always wanted to do but didn't have the time to do. It's very satisfying and fulfilling to do these things that I enjoy even if no one else enjoys it.
I can relate to a lot of what Michelle said about using this time for me and feeling selfish. I've happily given up a lot for other people but along the way I took a back burner to myself. In March I had a friend approach me asking to do work on one of her dream projects. I said no. She just approached me again this week. I said I was still too busy. People are not use to me saying "No" but I've found it very freeing and easier and easier to say "No" these days.
When you've always put yourself out for others they are always shocked when they hear No. I stated doing this a few years ago. It does improve your mood and self image.
I too am doing things that I have been putting off for years. I have just finished a jigsaw puzzle that I was given 5 or 6 years ago and would like to start on another. I am doing more crafting, but less reading as the libraries are closed. I do find that I have more time as I am not running around after others. I have said no to some on-line invitations to Tupperware partied etc as they did not interest me. I hope that when this situation is over that somethings continue this way.
I loved reading all the above.
Not too much change around here, either. DH was able to continue working out of the house. DS16 classes were moved online. I only went out every other week to grocery shopping . I read, walked, yoga, crocheted and watched my Hallmark movies. I made more desserts than ever before!
We three played card games, board games, and took bike rides.
I crocheted some masks for friends and even mailed some to DD28 and boyfriend in VT.
