I put myself on a schedule in order to protect my sanity. Up at 6 am, work by 8 am,, lunch at noon, quit working at 4:30. Bedtime at 10. (This latter is problematic, but it’s a goal. So is sleeping all night.)
It’s working. I’m centered. I got stuff accomplished today. And now I’m entering the entertainment time of the day. I’m watching crime dramas on one of the few channels my antenna can receive, sipping a glass of wine, and playing with the dogs. I’ll clean the kitchen here in a minute.
I did leave the house today. If I’m to work at home, I will need paper: nary a sheet in the house. So, off I went. I was surprised to be greeted on the interstate with a sign telling me I was supposed to be at home. Essential Travel Only!
The office was dark and rather eerie. It was a very atypical Monday morning. I watered the plants and grabbed a ream of paper. Home I went. The round trip took slightly over an hour.
But there were people out. Not as many as normal, but a fair number. That may change a little. They closed the park today and they’re going to start ticketing/citing folks who don’t comply with the stay-at-home order.
An aside: Speaking of which, the Virginia governor told his people they to stay at home until June 10th. JUNE 10th. He’s a pediatrician by training. He probably understands this stuff better than most.
All-in-all, today was uneventful. I’m not anxious or stressed and I’m settling into a routine. Let’s hope this continues. We all gotta do what gets us through the night. I’m sorry this is so boring, but I’m grateful for an uneventful day. They’ve been few lately.
