Today is Wednesday?

Wednesday, July 08, 2020

I believe the day is Wednesday because it is trash day. Otherwise, the days blur. I am okay with that though because I don't really have much else to do outside of the house. A couple of weeks ago I started a focused purging of stuff. I am determined to use this time to get rid of the clutter that consumes my life. It is a slow process but this house is FULL! But it feels great to see clear spaces in my house now. I even can eat at the dining room table if I want to without having to move stuff to have space. This purging will definitely keep my busy throughout the summer. I hope to continue being motivated.

Someone recently said that they cannot wait for things to "return to normal". I can! I do not want to go back to the way it was before when I bought stuff and packed the house or the freezer or the fridge just because I could. This has been a difficult time some days, but it also has helped me just be. I rarely do that and am always finding ways to be busy.

I have been able to reduce my credit card debt which has been wonderful! I have tried hard to avoid online shopping and rarely go out to stores.

I have cleaned out some clothes I haven't worn in a while or do not wear. Clutter just keeps my unfocused and this stuff needs to go.

I have gardened and am growing some great crops. This will be nice to have during the next couple of months so that I don't have to buy produce at the store. And I can be sure that I am not consuming pesticides.

I have read 2 books so far as well and am working on another one! As an educator, that rarely happens during the school year.

I have gotten to spend a great amount of time with my dog, Elvis. This has been such a treat and I am grateful for him as I would not have gotten through some days without him.

I have cooked a lot. Although some days it feels like a chore, I have been happy to try new recipes or revisit old favorites.

These are just a few of the pluses I have experienced since being home. I am not unhappy with the positive aspects of the pandemic even if I do not know what day of the week it is.

    I feel the same! I'm staying at my parents' house most of the time and it's the most I've seen them in years! It's helping me reconnect with my hobbies, too. I'm hopeful that my new pandemic habits will transfer once things do go back to normal(er)!
