What takes up my time when I’m not chained to my desk, and helps keep me sane(ish) through these days of social distancing?Continue reading “Holding up through trying times”
Missing the adventure of winging to some far-flung place, seeing new sites, meeting new people.
Missing the casual ease of popping over to visit my folks, the quiet pleasure of inviting them over for a meal, maybe a show watched together…Continue reading “Missing”
I had set up my own custom mission, from (roughly) home to (roughly) NYC. I didn’t make a fancy route to get off the highway or anything. Just popped in any old route, to do the miles, and try out the site to see what I thought. Continue reading “Solo mission”
Not only did S and I spend a couple of days recording our daily ‘miles’ and using Google street view Continue reading “And how fun is this?”
While I try out MyVirtualMission.com and do a solo run from roughly home to roughly NYC, S and I used the related site, TheConqueror. I may have mentioned that S had tried their English Channel challenge to try that out. She liked it, so we joined the Inca Trail Marathon and worked that as a Team. Continue reading “Virtual runs (continued)”
Every weekend since we all went into social distancing mode, I’ve whipped up a batch or two of something to get me through the week. Sometimes more than one something. Often too much something. Continue reading “Vacation from the kitchen”
Let me preface this with: I’m not sick. As I write this (versus when this posts – who knows by then), I haven’t been within six feet, ten feet, 25 feet of anyone, in ages.
So it’s not that. No worries there.
But I’m tired. Tired and sad and just blah.
(Real time update: I have been near other people – my family – on a limited basis. And that was so nice. Nevertheless I have a fresh dose of blah going on.)
This morning I overslept. I got my workout (Wii run) midday because I have this list to work through, and because I have a daily goal to meet, and then I made myself do the weights in the afternoon because seriously, if I didn’t move I might have just put my head down and slept.
I considered dumping more caffeine into my system, even knowing that afternoon caffeine would mess me up tonight, but my eye has been twitchy since lunchtime and so… nope.
It’s 5:30 pm as I write this. I’m 1800 steps from my 10k target and 4300 from my actual goal for the day and I want to go to bed now.
Which I am not going to do. In fact I bet if I strip the bed, I’ll have enough whites to do a load of laundry. And that will both make me move a little, and make me stay up at least long enough to put the bed back together.
Ech. Why do I feel so blah?
I feel like I’m underwater today so I thought I’d pull an image where that was a good thing… An awesome thing… An awesome time!
Maybe I just need an adventure?
Also IRL yesterday was Julie’s birthday and I flubbed it. Sorry sweetie! Hope it was happy! 🎂
It’s 6 weeks of isolation for me as I write this – it would be closer to 8 but I was the last member of my team elected to be in an office before everyone was sent home to work. Which broke my prior streak of solo existence.
By the time this is scheduled to post, it probably will be more than 8 weeks. Continue reading “A second list”
