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 Nineteen

I think I’m going crazy.

Today is my sister’s birthday, happy birthday Caitlin! I made her cupcakes that she came to pick up, and my step mum and I arranged to video chat with her and my dad who lives up North. She was surprised and I hope I had her day as good as I could in this quarantine.

I didn’t do anything today besides clean my kitchen 3 times, make cupcakes, make brownies and laundry. Dog walks were involed of course but I’m sure everyone is sick of hearing about that.

I literally don’t know what to write right now so I’m just going to call it a night.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Seventeen

Whoops! Forgot to write my blog last night and now I’m starting my streak over again.

Yesterday was a weird day for me. For some reason I kept dropping EVERYTHING, I dropped a cucumber, my keys, my phone a 100 times, pototoe peeler and a box of flour which exploded onto my floor. Needless to say I was not having a good day.

Also yesterday I could NOT handle the boredom, I just didn’t know what to do with myself and anything that I tried to do I just wasn’t having it. I tried reading, playing animal crossing, the puzzle, it just wasn’t working. I settled for making a new cross stitch and video chatting my mum. That was a nice catch up for the evening.

For dinner I made baked potatoe soup and because I was just having a fantasic day and it takes a bit to make, by the time it was done I just didn’t want it anymore. I ate it because that’s what I made but it was meh; Dave loved it though, he had two bowls full.

Yesterday was rest day so I didn’t do any workouts and that’s probably for the better, since I probably would have fell over and broken something LOL.

That’s all folks, sorry for the late post!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Twelve

Today was a good-ish day!

I did my usual morning routine with the dog but decided I was going to weight myself and workout. Have you ever heard have Hannah Bower? She’s like my favourite ‘workout person’, she’s gone through the journey herself of gaining weight, health issues and negetive self image. She’s so real it’s refreshing, she shows her family, her parenting style and so much more. She’s just positive and encouraging. She posted all her at home workouts in a story so I found one of those and did it! It was simple but it killed me (I’m hella out of shape); it consits of squats, situps, pushups, side lunges and supermans. Your first rep is 20 of each exercise, then you do 15 of each exercise, then 12, 10, 8 and 5 with minimal breaks in between. My legs are SORE.

My boyfriend misses hockey so much that he is using his NHL game to play computer vs computer just to watch the Leafs play. The man is going crazy. LOL

Not much else happened, besides we found puzzles at the dollarstore cause my awesome friend told me they were there! We got 3, they’re only 500 pieces but it’s something to do! We might set up a puzzle trade with someone because everywhere is sold out of them. Pictures to come!

That’s pretty much it! I actually almost forgot to write this so you know, duh. I’m going to go wash my very dirty hair and go to bed with Drax, he’s the best cuddle buddy.
