Good Evening , all! I have missed all my readers so much since I can only manage my blog from the cell phone right now, and I hate to make excuses but I’ve been super busy, but how?
Honestly, since the last time we communicated in my method of drinking and writing, my family has moved from Cincinnati to San Antonio, we bought a house,my son went to school for 3 days, and now we are all quarantined in our new home, and everything is under construction from our house to our family relationships. I think that no matter your situation, there is always a way to keep quarantine fun, let’s sip together.
1. Make a Change
There is always one thing we want to change about ourselves, though we typically don’t realize it until we have have enough time to sit and reflect, and what else are you going to do right now? For me, I have a hard time teaching my children, mostly because I have no patience. Now I can teach my child about counting ants on a hill and keep all my hair intact- well, it’s a work in progress.
I have really enjoyed finding things around the house that I can beautify, like wine bottles. During previous periods of boredom I have also made dream catchers for my children, car garage, and nightstand crates. What do you have lying around the house that could use a little TLC and imagination?
2. Get Creative
Seriously, how many books did you pick up last year and randomly place a bookmark in it to look like you had time to finish The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Since the libraries are closed, it may be hard to borrow a book but there are so many apps now that allow you to read a book for free, you may have to pay a subscription but there are sites like OpenLibrary that still let those brain zaps fuel up.
4. Fix something on a Bigger Scale
When we moved in I had so many visions and immediately thought that maybe in 4 years I will get it all done. Honestly, I thought I wasn’t giving myself enough time, but COVID-19 thought the color of our bathroom was rough and was painted pretty poorly so things got done. Even if you are in an apartment, or relatives, whatever your situation, there are ways you can still fix something that still irritates you- so maybe you can Feng Shui, do that oil change on your car, plant a tree, you got the gist.
5. Do something on your bucket list.
For me, I have always wanted to mow the damn lawn, it was #7 on my personal bucket list, mostly because I love vacuum lines and I always thought mowing the lawn created a similar feel and look, so I finally did it, and it was awesome. Even if your bucket list consists of fun things like ‘See how many pieces of Bazooka fit in my mouth and compare that to Hubba Bubba and Double Bubble’ then go for it- yes, that’s my #8.
There you go, 5 ways to be cool during quarantine. Now that I am settled, I want to hear from you. What have you been doing?
P.S: My song of inspiration has been Raise Hell by Dorothy. Seriously, give it a good listen!
