COVID-19 Layoff: Day Ninety & Ninety-One

Day 90:

Welcome to day 90, pretty much 3 months of quarentine.

I woke up feeling pretty good and productive as I tidied up a bit, attempted to get Drax into the bath – that was a BIG no go. He is too smart for his own good, he knew exactly what I was trying to do and just wasn’t having it. He ran away, I tried carrying him but he’s like 95-100lbs so that wasn’t happening. He won that battle but I trimmed his nails instead which he lets me do no problem. BUT once Dave got home Drax can’t run away from Daddy! Drax got in the bath and got a good washing because he was stinky!

The rest of the day was just hanging out until Dave came home but then we just hung out again. I did get a workout in and now I’m sore AF.

Day 91:

I woke up so tired but I worked myself out of it and decided to ask Amanda if she wanted to go to Toronto Premium Outlet mall. Since I go back to work soon I needed to get shirts and a pair of jeans, plus it was just nice to get out of the house and walk around.

I only went to a couple of stores but I found that there wasn’t very good deals. Most things were full price and most things were the same, like if one store at a jean jacket they all had a jean jacket that looks the same. We had fun though, it was beautiful out and we got Freshii for lunch which I haven’t had in forever!

I came home and for some reason my head started to kill and it never went away, then I was in a bad mood and just wanted to be left alone. Dave and I had dinner and eventually we watched a old movie about baseball called Rookie of the Year. It was cute.

That was it, after the movie I showered and went to bed. I didn’t do a workout yesterday so I have to make it up tomorrow.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Eighty-Eight & Eighty-Nine

Day 88:

Welp, this day wasn’t very interesting. Dave and I woke up and did some grocery shopping. We came back, put all our groceries away and hung out. The rest of the day was watching Netflix, we watch Da 5 Bloods, it was so good but holy was it ever long! It was around 9pm and we thought there was maybe 20min left, Dave said we’ll finish it up and take Drax on his evening walk. We checked how much time was left, we still had an hour! Needless to say we walked Drax and finished when we got back. Definetly go watch it.

Not an interesting day.

Day 89:

Today was a little bit more interesting.

My morning was the same with Drax but then it turned into a chill morning because Drax decided to nap. Around lunch time I took Drax out and had lunch and waited for Ford to make his announcement. Guess who’s going back to work Friday! After his announcement I did our laundry then got ready for my work meeting.

Our meeting was good, it was good to see everyone again but then we got to work with calling our clients to reschedule and book in our waitlist. It took some time, I didn’t even get through everyone since no one was answering their phones!

Anyways, I came home and made the instagram post so everyone knows and now I’m going to bed!

This is my last couple of days alone so it’ll be interesting and I gotta make it productive! I was suppose to workout today but that didn’t happen so tomorrow will have to be an extra good one!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Eighty-Six & Eighty-Seven

Day 86:

Welp this day was a bust.

I was home alone and I honestly didn’t do much. I obviously walked Drax a bunch but most of my day was pretty much watching Netflix and eating a shit ton of strawberries.

Eventually I did go to my Mum’s house to cut my step-dads hair which was nice to get out and actually do what my job is. I hung out with them for a bit then went home to make dinner.

For dinner I made chicken stuffed with goat cheese, wrapped in prosciutto with some side rice. Damn was it good and damn was it filling. Now Amanda wants to makes it for family dinner so we shall do that!

Not much else happened I was tired and sore so Dave and I hung out and relaxed for the night.

Day 87:

Today was a good day, Dave went to his mum’s grocery store to pick up a few things then we’ll probably do our regular grocery shopping tomorrow.

My sister and I hung out today, we drove to Spirit Tree to pick up some stuff which I completely forgot my mask since I’ve been in my quarantine bubble but we figured it out.

After we drove to Orangeville to go Philadelphia Kitchen sandwich which I haven’t had in forever. We ate in my car and had a nice time. Once we finished stuffing our faces we headed back home but stopped at Ace Hardware to see if they had bird stuff for my Dad for Father’s Day. They did and we got it so he’s done. Now just got to work on my step-dads gift, we have ideas though!

After we left Ace Hardware I realized there was chocolate on my seat from the bite if brownie I had and asked my sister if there was chocolate on my ass, of course there was and she rubbed it off for me using the Lysol wipes that I had in my trunk. I walked around all day with chocolate on my ass🤦‍♀️.

We drove home, watched a movie then my sister went home and Dave and I had dinner. The rest is the same as every other night!

I’m off to bed now!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Eighty-Five

Maybe I’ll hit 100 days?

Today was pretty much a boring day. I woke up lazy but I tried to work out of it and I did.

Took Drax on a long walk then went to Walmart to pick up a few things for dinner.

Came home, hung out and did not turn the TV on until Dave got home. It was pretty peaceful.

I did do a glute workout with weights and now I’m hella sore!

Amanda came over for dinner and strawberries with chocolate fruit dip. It was a good night of just hanging out and talking – a much needed night.

After that my old ass went to bed!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Eighty-Four

Well yesterday was extremely hot and humid, it defintely was not a fun day to be outside.

In the morning after our morning walk I decided to reorganize Dave’s side of the closet since it was a bomb. I got those vacuum ziploc bags for clothes and blankets so I went to work. It was so hot and I worked up a sweat but it was good and there’s more room in the closet now.

The rest of the day was pretty much just chilling until Dave got home, we fed Drax took him on a short walk then came back and sat at the patio set in our buildings backyard. It’s in the shade and there was a nice breeze from the storm coming in. It actually turned into a mini backyard gathering, a couple people we know came over to say hi and pet Drax, then Drax (one of many) girlfriends came over and they played while we all chatted. So I don’t like bugs, they’re gross and just meh. Out of nowhere Dave said watch out Maeghan! I thought he was talking about Drax but it was a big ass butterfly. I’m terrified of butterflies (thanks Mum) so everyone there proceed to laugh at me and ask me why, they laughed even more. Dave then tells them my Dad is a transport truck driver and that I got the trucker mouth – needless to say everyone was howling at the fact that I have a potty mouth and I’m scared of butterflies.
The conversation was going on then out of nowhere a bumblebee lands on my leg. Now I know they won’t do anything and we need to save the bee but I’m not a flower. So I didn’t move and one of the other people gentle pushed the little guy off me. Eventually the wind was getting crazy and all of us went inside to make our dinners.

I worked out while our food cooked, then decided to try to get Drax to pee before the storm came because he hates getting wet and he for sure was not going out in that weather. We did and of course got caught in the rain so I added some cardio to my workout. Drax ran pretty well while on the leash so maybe we can get cardio together. After our spirint we ate, I showered and sat outside watching the storm until we started to get wet.

That was pretty much our night until we all went to bed.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Eighty-Two & Eighty-Three

Day Eighty-Two:

Holy shit, I might actually be able to go back to work soon! Salons outside the GTA can open up by Friday; if the case numbers stay down then by next Friday I can go back to work!

This is exciting but I’m nervous about it. As a stylist I work extremely close with the general public but I’m also a stubborn asshole so I will refuse clients if they won’t follow our rules for safety.

That was pretty much the excitement for my day, the rest of the time it was watch TV and do laundry.

Day Eighty-Three:

Today was highly uneventful besides it being extremely hot outside. Yesterday it was beautiful, sunny with a nice breeze but today was just heat and straight humidity. In Canada that’s not a good thing, you just want to be naked or in a pool which were not allowed right now unless you have you’re own personal one.

All I did was watch Netflix today and went on a mini shopping trip where I didn’t spend anything with my friend. June is no spend month so that’s good!

Also, one of my packages showed up! I’m excited it finally came, now just two more need to show up!

That’s it, that’s all for today. Tomorrow I will try to be more exciting since I’m getting sick of sitting around again so we’ll try to organize or something.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Eighty & Eighty-One

Day Eighty:

EI report day which I almost forgot, thankfully I put a reminder on my phone and it popped up.

Today was a driving day, I was glad to get out of the house. Sister met me at my house and we picked up my Mum to drive to Etobicoke to pick up my families big San Remos order. Ususally that road is crazy so we went early to try to find parking/the curb side pickup. It was super easy, when we got there the two cars in front of us were leaving so I pulled up to spot one and waited. We were also 30 mins early so I thought they would make us wait but they came out with our order no problem.

We drove back to my Mum’s place, had a snack and hung out for a bit since Dave was napping with Drax. Came back in time to feed the dog and take him on his after dinner walk. Then it was hanging out for the rest of the night.

Day Eighty-One:

First off, holy crap to 81 days. I really hope I go back to work soon.

Today was pretty much a boring day, not much was done besides the regular stuff and watching all The Fast and the Furious movies since Netlfix put them all up! I remember watching the first one so I thought we’ll just rewatch them all. Dave didn’t want to watch them but once I put them on he was getting into it.

Obviously there’s a lot of them so I didn’t finish it today but I’m sure I will continue tomorrow.

I missed a couple days of workouts and ate like crap during those days so I needed to make up for it. I did an hour workout and died doing it but felt good after, I was also extremely tired. Drax keeps waking me up at 7am and I try to push it to 7:30 or 8 but it never happens.

That was pretty much my day!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Seventy-Eight & Seventy-Nine

Day Seventy-Eight:

This day was pretty uneventful. I honestly don’t really remember what I did. The weather has been pretty hot again so Drax hasn’t wanted to go on very many walks, even went I do take him out to pee he gets over heated and just lays down for a couple of hours.

I did go to Walmart to get migraine stuff since I knew the rain/pressure was coming not that anything is working right now but I’ll live.

Day Seventy-Nine:

Welp, a little more activity today but not much, I drove to Vaughan to pick up products for my family then drove to my Mum’s house to drop them off. It was something small but it was good to get out of the house with a task and not just going to Walmart to see what I can find.

Today I decided I was going to do a plant update!

Here we have all our herbs and leafy greens, they are growing wild to the point we have trimmed them and used them in our food. Some of them have died and others got burnt in the sun. The garlic grows underground so we might pull that up soon but I need to check how many days it takes!

This is our bin of lettuce, it’s still growing slowly but this was the last thing we planted so it’s got to catch up!

This is my pumpkins! I’m super excited that I have flowers out of it now, shitty part is bees will be around until the flowers turn into the pumpkin but it’s been too hot to sit out there when the sun is directly on my balcony anyways. Usually we can sit on the balcony around 2:30pm and on, it’s not too bad.

Drum roll on the sunflowers! Dave’s is on the left and mine is on the right. Mine is still taller but Dave’s is catching up! We need to get bigger pots for them eventually as mine seems to be growing out of that one quickly. It’s a pick em at this point! (cheer for mine, postive vibes!)

That’s all for the plants! I’ll keep update the more things change, right now I’m just excited for my pumpkins, maybe they’ll actually grow for me this time! Last time my step-dad tricked me thinking it grew but he just bought a small pumpkin…yea, I know! It was a good laugh though.

That’s all for today.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Seventy-Six & Seventy-Seven

Day Seventy-Six:

Welcome to another not so interesting boring day. I didn’t do much needless to say, I didn’t even work out!

The only interesting thing that happened yesterday was the crazy thunderstorm we had and I took a mini time laspe of it.

This is also why I didn’t have a blog, because I stayed up late, didn’t wash my hair and went to bed!

Day Seventy-Seven:

Another not so interesting day! The weather was weird today, I woke up and it was cloudy and windy with some chances of some rain. All of the sudden its sunny, humid and hot. Hot enough that Drax didn’t want to go on walks. Tomorrow morning I’m hoping he wakes me up early enough that we get a long one in before it gets too hot.

Today I did do a work out and I died. It was on resistance band workout, I didn’t think it was going to be that bad since the last one I did wasn’t that hard, apparently the last one I did was a shit workout!

So I do have a rant today, just a small rant, that I really shouldn’t since I know people are working very hard. Canada Post messed with my emotions. I ordered stuff from Gymshark, it said it was out to be delivered which made me very excited because I have nothing else to do. It didn’t come and when I checked later on it said deliever date pending and it was all of the sudden back at the postal facility. I was excited it was coming but now I don’t know what’s going on. ALSO I ordered The Body Shop a week before Gymshark and I don’t even have shipping for that! I know, I know, I shouldn’t be complaining at all. Just a small rant of playing with my emotions. I thank Canada Post workers big time and I know you’re all very busy and short staffed! We love you.

That’s all I have for today.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Seventy-Four & Seventy-Five

Day Seventy-Four:

Howdy! Today was a weird day. Dave and I woke up, walked Drax, I made breakfast then we went to my mum’s to file our taxes. Adulting. I wonder how messed up everyone’s taxes are going to be next year after all of this.

Eventually we came home, ate lunch then headed to Guelph to pick up fish for Dave’s fish tank. We drove back in time for Drax dinner and walk. The rest of the night we just hung out.

Day Seventy-Five:

Unfortunately, another boring day. I walked Drax a bunch, watched tv, did my workout and made dinner with Dave.

These days are turning into blurs and are not very interesting. In hoping I go back to work soon.

I did my expenses today and now I need to do Dave’s. But that’ll be another day.

Not much else to say!
