Hi. I went to the office yesterday and was incredibly productive. Today I’m working from home again and, while I love being able to get a wonderful workout in and make my lunch while watching morning news and chat shows, I’m realizing that I’m just not really cut out to work from home. I get a lot done, don’t get me wrong, but man. All I want to do is get out of this apartment. It makes me crazy to hang out in this apartment all day and all night.
And my workday is over now. I got so busy that I didn’t have time to even really get to the meat of an entry.
So what do I do in the evenings? Well, I wait until it cools down a bit, I facetime with my mom and sometimes my dad or my SIL (who’s doing okay!) or my bro (very occasionally) or my niece. Sometimes I make them laugh; sometimes we talk corona and politics; sometimes the weather; sometimes I cry; sometimes we have not a whole lot to say to each other, but our nightly convos continue. Then I take the dog for a walk - lately it’s been at the fancy park in the ritzy neighborhood where I can walk around safely. It’s amazing there. It’s like a whole other world. It’s like a fantasy. I was thinking of taking a picnic there tonight, but I’m not hungry. I might take a blanket and sit for a while. It truly is bliss.
And then later tonight I proposed to some of my neighbors that we meet on the roof as the sun sets and have a glass of wine. That will be nice.
So there. These are the days of Covid-19. I work (thankfully!!). I talk to family and sometimes friends. I walk the dog. I drink a bit. I eat. I exercise a bit. I bumble around on Hinge occasionally…
Which reminds me…today I started messaging with a guy who just made it to the Maldives!! It’s like the only place in the world where Americans can go outside of this country. How wild is that?! He said he did a bunch of research about where in the world he could possibly go and he said that the Maldives is actually one of two places in the world. Then he found a great deal on a business class ticket on Qatar Airlines and booked a resort, and voila! Amazing, huh? It kind of blew my mind and made me a little jealous. He also said that the resort was 5% booked. I think it would just be so wild to be out and about right now. I wonder if he’ll have trouble getting back into the country or if the rules will all change while he’s there? I wonder if he’ll get the freaking VIRUS! The suspense is killing me! I hope he stays in touch.
He’s also 6’8”, which is alllllllways intriguing to me!
Okay, it’s time to start the evening un-routine.
Love you madly,
