COVID-19 Layoff: Day Fifty-Six

Good evening!

This morning Dave and I cleaned the whole apartment because, well, we have a dog. Enough said. Drax was walked a bunch which made Dave and I compare steps and try to beat eachother – he has yet to beat me.

Cleaning was pretty much the highlight of my day, which I don’t know what that says about the day. I went over fiances which is a pain but whatever, played Animal Crossing, walked Drax, and watched Upload on Amazon Prime.

Upload is actually a good show, Dave’s brother suggested we watch it. It’s about if you die or were injured would you choose the way we do things now, surgery and hope you survive or your conscious gets uploaded to a virual heaven so you can live forever and family and friends can still see you. Which would you do? Go watch it!

Dave got the call that he goes to work again on Tuesday so I’ll be all on my own starting then. I feel like I’m going to be so bored all by myself so I’m going to have to get creative and motivated.

So remember how I got burnt like a week ago? Well my burnt is now itchy AF and peeling like CRAZY. One part of my shoulder still hurts but I’m sure it’ll go away. With the nice weather coming this weekend I definitely need to wear sunscreen!

That’s all for today!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Fifty-Four

Merry May!

As my Mum said this morning because we woke up to snow and a migraine! Today was back to being lazy-ish. I did do laundry and dishes but the rest of the day was attempting to watch tv while Dave put together his fish tank.

I did go over Dave’s budget to see how he’s doing in the two days that I gave it to him. He’s pretty much spent his smoking budget and there’s still two more weeks of May left but the rest he has done pretty good so far.

I wanted to make banana bread today but my head hurt too much and didn’t want to move. Maybe tomorrow will be a bread making day because why not? Honestly not much else was done today, especially since Mother’s day was yesterday, I’m just old and tired!

That’s all for today, hope everyone had a good and safe day.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Fifty-Three

Happy Mother’s Day!

My sister, step-dad and I had a plan to surprise my mum! Couple weeks ago my sister and I decided to order my mum the body shop mother’s Day tote bag!

It’s filled with all these awesome products, which my family loves a good Body Shop product! So it’s a good one and the bag is actually really cute.

We also decided to get her a book that she has to fill out. Thought it was just a cool little idea and in the future we’ll get it back.

I then got her a card that is related to toilet paper since there was a toilet paper crisis! My sister and step dad also planned to Swiss Chalet for linner and hang out. It was a good day and a good surprise for my mum.

After I drove to Vaughan to get gas because it was cheaper and I get my reward points for discounted/free gas! Then watched some TV until I fell asleep on the couch 🤦‍♀️.

That’s all for today. How was everyone’s Mother’s Day? Hope they were great.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Forty-Seven

It was freezing this morning!

Being burnt doesn’t help, I probably felt way colder than I should have. I put aloe on all night, like I mean if I woke up to go to the bathroom I reapplied. It helpes a great deal on the spots that weren’t too bad, now it’s just the bad spots that I’m taking take of. That just happens to be the whole right half of my body!

I don’t know how one day it’s 20 degrees and I’m getting burnt to 5 degrees! It’s crazy but that’s the weather these days and now we may get snow? So I’ve heard. Who knows.

I didn’t do much today since yesterday was a out day. I did do laundry which sucks but it’s done and now I can figure out stuff to do tomorrow that doesn’t involve moving too much. My one leg is the worst, it looks and feels like it’s trying to split. We’ll just keep that nice and moisturized.

That’s pretty much it for today unfortunately today was definitely a boring day and I don’t have much to report. I did watch movies and tv. I watched Space Jam, the next 2 episodes of The Last Dance and then Transformers. Now I’m in bed.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Forty-Six

Summer is near!

You know how I know? I’m burnt to a crisp.

This morning Dave and I went to Walmart to get a bin for his hockey gear that I didn’t want on the balcony anymore. Our balcony is narrow but long so we had space but it didn’t look great plus we need to downside in general. I wanted a bin that could fix under our bed which is does so not under our bed is organized and our balcony is slowly getting organized.

After that I visited my mum, step-dad and sister, we sat on the balcony and chatted away to only be burnt to a crisp. My whole left side is burnt, the back of my neck and a little big of my left arm. Both my thighs are burnt but my shins are still white af. This is what happens when I don’t put sunscreen on. I came home to chill, shower and put aloe on but my body absorbs it in 10mins so this should be a good night. I’m definitely going to wake up in the middle of the night to aloe up!

That’s pretty much my day. It was a good one though, the sunshine and seeing family definitely was good on my mental health.

I hope everyone is staying safe.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Forty-Five

Lazy day.

Well today was a boring day. At my apartment it was balcony clean up day, but there were wasps! I made Dave get rid of one then I started to clean but then I found another one so I said fuck it, plus it looked like it was going to rain. Our balcony isn’t that messy anyways, it’s like organize mess.

The rest of the day was just hanging out and watching movies. At dinner time we fed Drax then went for a walk only to get caught in the rain! Drax hates rain so as soon as it started he was all about getting inside, then it started to come down harder so we ran! Drax is pretty good at running when on a leash, he hates having a wet face so as soon as he’s inside he will run on the towel to get it off then he lays in our bed like a butt.

The rest of the night was hanging out and attempting to get rid of a migraine, this weather is killing me!

That’s pretty much it for today. Today wasn’t an interest day unfortunately.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Forty-Three

It’s almost Friday!

Today wasn’t that great of a day. I was slightly productive but I had a migraine a day because it rained all day. I guess the weather has decided to finally be spring.

This morning Drax actually slept in but it was probably because of the weather (he hates rain), we went on our morning walk and got soaked because he was being slow and indecisive. Eventually I just pulled him to go back to the apartment.

Eventually after playing with Drax and breakfast I decided I was going to start organizing my pantry. For Christmas last year I got some organizing containers so I figured out what fit in where and what I could change so it made more sense and I didn’t have to spend so much! I then went on Kitchen Stuff Plus and ordered curbside 3 containers and a brown sugar attachment. I still have yet to get them because I didn’t get the email to pick it up until after the store is closed. So that’ll be tomorrow.

I added up most of my expenses and will finish the rest tomorrow. I completely forgot to take pictures of my plants today so that is also on my list for tomorrow. I actually have a big list for tomorrow so I shouldn’t be bored.

Dave and I just watched movies in the evening and got bored! Now I’m laying in bed hoping to fall asleep soon since I’ve been sleeping like crap!

That’s it for tonight.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Forty One

This weather can’t make up its mind.

One day it’s a snow storm every ten minutes, the next day it’s sunny and warm enough for my pale skin to burn and now it’s always super windy and rainy! Pick a season please!

Today I wanted to get out of the house so I went to Shoppers Drug Mart with Amanda. We both got some nail polish and I got nail polish remover. I never do my nails because I’m usually just washing hair all day long but since I’m not why not? I picked out a nice steel colour. I’m actually in love with it and might keep them like this for the duration of the quarantine.

Cute! Excuse the messy nails LOL

After that I picked up some hangers to help organize my closet. My boyfriend has a shit ton of shirts (that he doesn’t wear) and I barely have any but that’s because most of my clothes are still at my parents. Slowly but surely I will get there!

Came back to walk Drax and try to stay busy. Did the closet, cleaned kitchen, did nails, did Dave’s expenses, played Animal Crossing and now in bed with a migraine that is keeping me awake (stupid weather).

It was great to get out of the house, my mental health definitely needed it besides just walking Drax all the time. I feel refreshed and now can go back to being locked up again waiting for a million packages to come, okay 4 and two of them are my sisters.

That’s about it folks, productive day for the most part. How is everyone doing? Go outside for the morning and buy small things like $5 nail polish!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Thirty-Nine

Cloudys, clouds go away…or just rain already.

Yesterday was such a nice day and today was nothing but clouds and waiting for it to rain. When the weather is like this all I get is migraines and it gets worse the more it doesn’t rain because of all of the pressure.

I walked Drax 3 times before 12pm because he was being such a suck and kept wanting to go out. I swear he is the only dog that isn’t sick of going on walks!

Today I finished watching a show on Netflix called Outer Banks, it’s pretty interesting about teens looking for a ship wreck, it’s cheezy but good to pass the time. I also watched the one episode on Netflix of Coronavirus Explained, it’s pretty good and interesting because it’s not repeating the same thing everyday like what’s on the news. It actually explains what’s going on rather than just saying keep social distancing! Got take a look, it’s one episode that’s like 30mins long.
We also watched Extraction with Chris Hemsworth, I’m sorry, I love Chris but this movie was boring. Take a look for yourself but I just wasn’t into it, either was Dave.

The rest of the night was just hanging out, Dave wanted to trim his beard even though he keeps threatening to shave it all off. I don’t want him to look baby face so I made it short but still having a beard.

I’m probably just going to go to bed soon since this weather is just peachy. Tomorrow I think I’m going to give another plant update because some of them have grown a lot and Dave planted some new stuff. I’m not going to have any room on my balcony.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Thirty Eight

Today was report day!

Honestly report day isn’t that interesting, it literally takes 5 minutes to do.

Today was such a beautiful day, literally everyone was out in the park not social distancing! I sat on my balcony for way too long apparently because my chest, face and one shoulder is burnt. Yep, burnt. It was only 13° out but my fair skin can’t handle it! The joke in my family is that I don’t tan, I either stay white or burn. Which is pretty much the truth so today it was burn!

The rest of the day was pretty much chilling out, this morning I had a SHIT TON of dishes to wash so that got done and the rest is history.

I can’t wait until this is over, being stir crazy is coming back and I don’t know what to do anymore!

Hope everyone is staying sane and safe.
