The weather has been hella nice lately but it’s slowly getting extremely hot. My Dad was home from work so Dave, Drax and I loaded up the car with my tires and the family and drove up to Hillsburgh. My Dad changed my tires over for me and we had lunch while the dogs played around all afternoon. My Dad has two dogs, a red fox lab and a bernese mountainn dog; the lab minds his own business but the bernese is a grumpy old man but Drax doesn’t mind really, he just loves having dogs as big as him around.
Eventually we drove back home and everyone was tired, Dave and Drax napped and I just did small things around the house until it was dinner time and Drax’s late night walk.
Today was a productive day, I went grocery shopping since last night Dave and I noticed our fridge was completely empty. Grocery shopping alone is meh but I did get to take my time and figure out stuff while I was there. I just like having someone push the cart. I came home, put the food away and then worked out. Today I did some pilates that I completely suck at and I’m super out of shape! Once working out was done I deicided to make a sandwhich because I didn’t want to make the apartment hot since it felt like 37 outside! Laundry was 30mins after lunch which is annoying, I absolutely hate going up and down! Laundry goes something like this: I live on the 6th floor, so I go down to 1 put clothes in the 4 washer, go back up, wait 30mins to go back down and put them in the dryer, come back up to hang any clothes I didn’t want to dry, wait 50mins and go back down to get the dry clothes and folding is always a pain!
I hung out until Dave came home, we made dinner, walked Drax around 8 so it was cool enough for him and now were hanging out watching some Netflix. Pretty productive day and now I’m super tired!
My day was a pretty unproductive day. I decided I wasn’t going to watch the news today and I’m in a much better mood, no idea if that is related or not.
My boredom got the best of me today, my boyfriend already had money on his Nintendo account and all I needed to do was get the rest and I could buy the new Animal Crossing game so that’s what I did. Once Drax was all tired out and ready for his afternoon nap I started to play the game. I played all afternoon until Drax woke up and it was time for his dinner and after dinner walk. The game is cool, instead of already coming into a city that is made you are on a island and you have to build it all yourself. Definitely stepped up the game and I’m super excited to unlock all the stuff.
After Drax’s walk I came in to make dinner, we decided on spaghetti and homemade meatballs. Dave said they were going to take long but they only took 25 mins to cook and I timed it so everything would be ready at the same time. Needless to say he was happy I made them because he went for seconds and then started to eat just the meatballs on their own.
Our plants/seeds are growing really well! It’s too bad it’s now snowing in Ontario…in April…
So in the big pot we have my sunflower that I named Posty. His roots were growing out the bottom of the cup so it was time for him to upgrade to the big pot.
Top row going left to right: arugula, spinach, rosemary, pumpkin, and cilantro.
Bottom row going left to right: garlic, arugula, spinach, Dave’s sunflower named S.F. Malone, and another pumpkin on the end.
So the reason Dave and I named our sunflowers is for three reasons, 1. I’m obsessed with Post Malone, 2. He has that song Sunflower and 3. Dave and I are having a competition on who will have the bigger and better sunflower. As you can see mine is currently winning the race. Don’t get your hopes up though folks, I tend to kill plants so we’ll see how this really goes.
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.
We had the biggest single day increase of COVID-19 cases; 550 new cases in Ontario today.
Not the greatest news to wake up to especially after we all thought the numbers were slowly going down. This morning Dave and I went to the grocery store and this time we actually wore gloves. Every time we walk into the apartment we wash our hands, I’m constantly wiping/spraying things down and staying inside besides dog walks and grocery store stops. When is this going to end though?
After the grocery store we made pizza and walked Drax then hung out the whole day. Not much was done today, I didn’t even do the dishes! We did however give Drax a bath after his last walk tonight because he STUNK. He’s now laying on our bed drying after we toweled dried him.
On the bright side of things, the plants that Dave and I planted are starting to sprout. Our arugula has sprouted early and is going like wild fire right now!
The others are slowly growing aswell, I’ll take a picture of those tomorrow. I’m excited to have plants on my balcony to make it more welcoming even though in the month of May I apparently have to clean my balcony. I haven’t even been in this apartment for a year and it keeps raining so it’s not dirty.
Tonight I’ve been cross stitching, attempting to get my bestfriend’s cross stitch done but her design I choose is a little big more intricate. I also need to go to the store and find light and dark grey thread. Here is the one I did for my step-dad….
It’s cute! I’m trying to make ones for each person that has things they like. When my step-dad is putting things together he always says, “for fuck sakes” so I though the for fox sakes was a good idea.
That’s about it, just preparing to make Easter dinner Sunday, what is everyone else doing for Easter? Staying in I hope. Stay safe.
Uh what did I do today? Walked Drax of course, made another loaf of bread, cross stitched, watched a movie and cross stitched.
Life is mushing into one big day and it’s driving me crazy. I really need to stop eating bread, so I’m going to stop making it unless it’s for someone else. Tomorrow I weigh myself so we’ll see if the walking and workouts beat out the bread. (Probably not).
I did not workout today. I couldn’t find the motivation and when I messaged my bestfriend who is the queen of working out, she told me, “Sunday’s are for rest days.” It wasn’t much help so I didn’t workout.
Dave and I watched Onward on Disney Plus, it’s so cute! Go watch it if you have Disney Plus. If you don’t have it then what the hell are you doing? Don’t you know we’re in a pandemic? Nothing else to do!
So I have YET to be paid from EI, just as an update. This shit is taking forever and now tomorrow the website is going to be a complete shitshow.
Did anyone watch this mornings news? I watch it every morning then turn it off to avoid our reality. Let me save you the time, Trump is a fucking dick, we’re nowhere near the end of this situation and keep social distancing and washing your damn hands. On to the next day.
Today was workout day, there was also zero motivation. I sat around for a bit trying to get myself motivated to do the workout. I got it done but it wasn’t a good workout. Those days happen though. This morning I did a glute workout which consisted of 20 x 3 elevated glute bridges, 10 x 3 elevated single leg glute raises, 20 x 3 hip thrusts, 10 x 3 single leg thrusts, and10 x 3 single leg Romanian deadlift. Plus a 2 and half kilometer walk with Drax. My ass is going to be sore tomorrow.
The rest of the day was a write off. Dave wanted to go to Krispy Kreme, we drove all the way there (30min drive) to find out the drive thru line up was 70 cars deep so we turned around to get DQ (that is literally 3 minutes drive from my house). The rest has been a Netflix and Quarantine night.
For some reason I’m hella tired today so it’s time to wash my hand that has had Olaplex in it all day and go to bed!
When you put lotion on your hands and they instantly go red and burn like crazy because they’re so dry. Quarantine life!
This morning Dave had a zoom meeting so I walked Drax and attempted to keep him quiet. After that we walked Drax a BUNCH today. This dog is passed out! Normally he’s all in my face wanting to play. His life is literally eat, walk, shit, sleep, repeat. Living the dog dream.
This morning I worked out and watched Dave struggle to workout (he’s lazy lol) I did side planks, hip thrust, lunges, pushups, lunge pulses, and Russian twists. You do each exercise for 30 secs with minimal breaks in between. After you’ve completed all the exercises you take 2 mins break then repeat 3 times. It’s simple but effective! Plus 13,000 steps later helps.
I cleaned my house again and finally vaccumed so now the floors looks clean again. That’ll only last until tomorrow though because dog life! Not much else was done besides hanging out playing Animal Crossing (the old one, I wish I had the new one but expensive!) And dog walks.
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.
Happy Quarantine Day Seven! How is everyone doing? Tell me how your keeping yourself entertained in the comments (located at the top of each blog post).
The highlight of my day was finishing the puzzle! In the morning I was doing dishes and god knows what and Dave was working away, at one point I stood up to see how he was doing and was shocked. He did a lot of work so I said gets just finish it! We worked together and filled it out quickly.
The rest of the day was pretty much a right off. Worked on my online class and my code came in for EI but my ROE isn’t on their yet! I’ll check for that tomorrow but I’m pretty much just hanging around and taking Drax on long walks because what else is there to do? Dave and I will have to get another puzzle to make the time go again, a 1000 pieces only took us a week.
That’s it, that’s all. Stay tuned for more exciting adventures!
I woke up to snow (ew) then it rained a bit (double ew) and it’s day five.
The morning routine was normal (dog walks and all), had some chocolate chip banana pancakes for breakfast (can you tell that diet is going well?) then I did some online work. However, today was the day that I had to pick up my Record of Employment and trying to figure out what the fuck I do with this paper. I do not understand why the government of Canada makes apply for EI so fucking hard. I also don’t know why they dont teach any of this in schools!
Do you know what I (barely) learnt in school that I haven’t used since I left? “Find X in this equation”, “train A is going 50km/h and train B is going 5km/h, where will they meet?” NOT ONCE! I’m almost 29 years old and I don’t know how to do my taxes yet if we don’t do them we can get in big shit, but godforbid we don’t teach it in school. How does that make sense? But enough ranting about that for today.
Picking up my ROE just made me think about how broke I am and being a millennial, I was already screwed to begin with, and now starting over (yippy).
Enough negativity for today, as promised, pictures of the puzzle we’re working on….
That’s all folks, hopefully tomorrow is a better day. Tomorrow is bread day (dough is made but it needs to rise) so I’ll be even fatter!
