Today is day 12 of self isolation or the COVID 19 lockdown. I have to admit that I am actually enjoying this time at home. Normally I am itching to get out and about but hanging out at home with the kids has been cool. Usually we are dropping someone off here or picking up a kid from there. It doesn’t seem to end so this break from the norm is welcome!!
We have eaten really well and I have time for baking and cooking. I am developing a keen interest in the latter and have been trying some new ideas. Not eating out has been fabulous for us as a family. How is it for you?? What do you miss? Me, well not much to be honest. I never really did much for me so nothing to miss there. I am however enjoying my books. I have read the series called The Chronicles of Kerrigan . A real gripper to be honest.
One thing this has done is set up a new routine of balance. I don’t know about you but I have managed to achieve so many things in this time at home. One of my goals was to read more so I think we can tick that off the list. I also started a list of jobs for the week…about 5 items each week. I managed to get through quite a bit but the first few days of lock down were school days so I was online working through stuff with my students, touching base with me and posting in our online forum.
Currently, its our school holidays so I can actually get some jobs completed at home. I managed to complete my list of jobs this week and now I will have to change up my list for next week. Funnily enough, the kids are still working through their daily time tables which include school work LOL. They have been helping a bit but they are so not into cleaning windows or spring cleaning the house. That’s on me. They are just chilling out and getting through their school tasks which is fabulous BUT they are also having fun.
One thing I have found quite welcoming, is having time for me. I reckon once we get back to normal most of us will itching to get our fingers stuck into the good old times. For me, I will be reflecting on what I value the most and start to make a plan soon for the things that are important to me and that I will get back into or recreate. I love that I am getting my fitness goals back and really working towards my goal for each day which is at least 30 minutes a day of something. I dusted off the treadmill, found my weights and stretch bands. The kids have been joining with some of this too but after a few days they got bored with that one so they’re off bouncing on the trampoline or shooting some hoops.
I love that we can just be us for the moment. The best thing is that we are just working out what we do day by day. So for today, I will say see ya soon and keep safe peeps.
