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 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-Two

Today was a blur.

This morning Dave and I went to Dave’s family grocery store, saw their little puppy (she’s literally only 2lbs), got some groceries then came home to walk Drax a bunch of times.

I have this urge to organize my pantry. You know, buy the clear containers and label them so they all match and look pretty – but money. Kitchen Stuff Plus does have curb side so I may get 2 containers to start with and grow from there. It’s going to have to be a slow process with this whole pandemic.

None of my orders have come in and it’s stressing me out. I ordered soap from Bath and Body Works because we’re running out and it’s been 3 weeks, it was supposed to come today but tracking doesn’t give any information so that’s useless. My sister’s package says it should come Friday so we’ll see for that, my other stuff it doesn’t say anything, the tracking is also useless so I have no clue when that will show up! Hopefully soon because it’s a gift!

Tomorrow I’m going to do my plant update, I’ve been putting it off but things need to happen! Stay tuned for that!

Not much else is happening, I slept like absolutely shit last night so I’m in bed with Drax and I’m going to pass out.
