COVID-19 Layoff: Day Twenty-Eight

What day is it?

Today was a stressful blur. Last night and this morning I had a heart attack over the whole CERB thing. On Twitter and Instagram I saw that you need to reapply every month for the CERB, however Twitter and Instagram weren’t very clear when they posted this and sent everyone into a freenzy. We figured it out for the most part and I was done panicking eventually.

So yesterday I totally forgot to tell my funny dinner story. I made spaghetti and homemade meatballs and it was delicious but I didn’t tell you about raining pasta. When Dave and I have spaghetti we break the uncooked pasta because I have a tongue ring and it gets wrapped around it. I was struggling to break the big bundle I had so I made it into two smaller bundles. I broke one bundle in half but pieces went flying everywhere! Like I was standing in my kitchen that over looks my living room, pieces rained down on Dave sitting on the couch, flew to my dogs bed on the other side of the livingroom and by our jackets hanging up on the other side of the house. We laughed then sure enough I did the exact same thing with the second bundle. EVERYWHERE.
Naturally, I didn’t clean it up because I was lazy then ate way to much pasta. The next morning I walked into the bathroom and felt something stuck to my sock, I tried kicking it off but nothing so I lift up my foot and sure enough pasta was stuck in my sock. Needless to say I vaccumed today only to miss a full size pasta noodle! No idea where that one came from!

Today was pretty much a repeat of yesterday, I played with Drax, waited until he went to nap and played animal crossing. Now my plans are to shower and cuddle Drax in bed, living the dream.

The new Animal Crossing game is actually really fun, they added in A LOT, literally building everything from the ground up. I love it but you definitely need some help on what to do because you end up doing nothing. I’ve been doing well for the most part still it’s work this one, but it’s a good thing! The other one you get bored of fishing to pay off your incredibly high loan.

That’s it for today. I’m going to think of more ideas for this blog since I have another month of COVID layoff.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Twenty-Two

Anyone else going stir crazy?

I don’t even remember what I did today. Everyday is bluring into one day and I hate it. I feel like I’m living in a groundhog day movie and I loathe groundhog day movies. Obviously I walked Drax today but we didn’t do our big 2k walk since I was apparently grumpy and didn’t want to be cold! For some reason the weather deicided to get cold and us Canadians aren’t liking it! LOL

I worked on my cross stitch for my best friend but now I can’t finish it because I need grey thread. Tomorrow is a holiday in Canada so all the stores will be closed, plus I don’t want to spend more money. Maybe later on I will get it once I’m not so worried about money (but that will be never, pandemic and all).

I worked on my savings plan since the CERB (Canada Emergency Response Benefit) is taxable, aka they didn’t take any taxes off and we’ll have to pay them back next year come tax season. I’ve been getting into Excel for some reason (adulting) and since I have the full paid verison of Mircrosoft I get all the good templates. I found an awesome monthly budget template so I have all those set up and I found a savings template that lets me set a goal, shows current balance and how much more I need to save. For those of you who don’t know me I find organizing (in any fashion) extremely fun. I’m a weirdo.

That’s pretty much it. I feel bad because these blogs are starting to sound the same everyday, mostly because I’m going stir crazy and getting bored with everything I try to do. Now I’m probably going to go shower, lay in bed and look at my phone or read.
