An average day begins for me at 6 a.m. with coffee. If I am reading a book, I usually will spend time reading in the morning, with coffee. I am currently reading Pride and Prejudice. Somewhere around 7:30 or 8 a.m. I get motivated for a workout. A shower and house chores followed by errands or grocery pick up will normally complete my morning.
I like to sit for 45 min. in the early afternoon and watch General Hospital, (recorded) while I am eating my lunch. I try to text message a friend or two every couple of days, just to check in and let them know I am thinking of them. Pandemic or not, our friends are important and should be acknowledged and appreciated as often as possible.
Evenings are for relaxing and watching television. I go to bed routinely at 9:30-10:00 p.m.
If my daughter asks a favor or allows me to do something for her during the course of a day, I enjoy being able to help her.
The HIGHLIGHT of every single week since the pandemic and (home schooling) has been reading to my little guys in Torrance, once or twice a week. We visit and catch up first and then I read to both boys and Nico reads something to me. Nico will be in second grade this year and he is an excellent reader. Liam starts kindergarten this year.
No matter how down, sad, slow or tired of Pan-days I am…these boys brighten up my life. I am glad we can continue our “reading days” as home-schooling begins again for them, next week.
What or who, brightens your Pandemic-days and makes them easier to get through?
