Sunday, April 19th 2020:
Well another Sunday spent working for me. But that is okay. The work I did over the weekend is going to take some hand holding until probably Monday afternoon sometime. Just one of those things I just have to get through and see until the end. I feel good about it, not really doubting it like I was earlier in the weekend. The downtime I had on Sunday I spent just watching TV, not doing much. Feeling a bit frustrated today as well. Mostly about the whole quarantine thing. Being isolated for as long as I have, I think I need to be careful to not let my imagination get the best of me. Thinking about the “what ifs” and such. Just need to stay positive and keep talking to people. Friends, family, whomever. And they need to be positive as well. That might be the key for me when I get a little frustrated.
But I am happy to report that I have not had any weird dreams for a few nights now. That is good. Also since I have been working every day, I think I am going to need a day off to just unplug. Maybe this Friday I can get a day off from working. That would be nice. If I was going into the office everyday, a day off at home alone would always be great. But not no more. Having a day off here at home, like I have been for the last 5 weeks, won’t help. I will probably still end up working somehow and wasting a day off. So getting out of here might be the key. Where would I go? Not sure. I have a few ideas like just going for a drive near the ocean and finding a spot to park and just relaxing there since the beaches are closed. Or maybe a drive up the coast a bit and then finding a nice secluded area to just stretch out and relax. I have started reading a book I had not finished so I could take that with me to just read for hours. Or maybe just draw on my iPad. But the key is to get away, and remove myself from any work related issues while still following the quarantine, social distancing rules. This new world we are starting to settle in…I am not a big fan of it.
Not much on my mind today, so I am going to wrap up todays entry with a thank you for any new readers who are checking in on me. I have a few topics that I am going to dive into this week so keep checking in for more.
