COVID-19 Layoff: Day Seventy-Six & Seventy-Seven

Day Seventy-Six:

Welcome to another not so interesting boring day. I didn’t do much needless to say, I didn’t even work out!

The only interesting thing that happened yesterday was the crazy thunderstorm we had and I took a mini time laspe of it.

This is also why I didn’t have a blog, because I stayed up late, didn’t wash my hair and went to bed!

Day Seventy-Seven:

Another not so interesting day! The weather was weird today, I woke up and it was cloudy and windy with some chances of some rain. All of the sudden its sunny, humid and hot. Hot enough that Drax didn’t want to go on walks. Tomorrow morning I’m hoping he wakes me up early enough that we get a long one in before it gets too hot.

Today I did do a work out and I died. It was on resistance band workout, I didn’t think it was going to be that bad since the last one I did wasn’t that hard, apparently the last one I did was a shit workout!

So I do have a rant today, just a small rant, that I really shouldn’t since I know people are working very hard. Canada Post messed with my emotions. I ordered stuff from Gymshark, it said it was out to be delivered which made me very excited because I have nothing else to do. It didn’t come and when I checked later on it said deliever date pending and it was all of the sudden back at the postal facility. I was excited it was coming but now I don’t know what’s going on. ALSO I ordered The Body Shop a week before Gymshark and I don’t even have shipping for that! I know, I know, I shouldn’t be complaining at all. Just a small rant of playing with my emotions. I thank Canada Post workers big time and I know you’re all very busy and short staffed! We love you.

That’s all I have for today.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Seventy-One & Seventy-Two

Day Seventy-One:

This day was pretty uneventful. My morning routine was pretty much the same with walking Drax and attempting to eat healthy. I did have a doctors appointment so I got ready for that, mask in hand and drove. I ended up being 30mins early because normally the road the doctor is on is ususal extremely busy but now in the pandemic is kinda busy. Anyways I sat in the car just chilling until it started to rain so I decided to put my mask on and head in. It was a quick trip, in and out and I was on my way!

I came home to Dave and Drax laying in bed so I laid down with them and we laughed at Tik Tok videos, I don’t make them I just watch them if you were curious.

I waited all day to get the motivation to work out and I finally did but it was at the end of the day and I was distracted so it wasn’t the best workout. I ordered some cute stuff from Gymshark since my resistance bands are awful, I’m excited for those to show up. That was pretty much it!

Day Seventy-Two:

This morning routine was all messed up! Dave didn’t start work until later so Drax woke him up and he took him out earlier than I normally would. Eventually I woke up, ate breakfast and decided to take Drax on a long walk, it’s about 2k. When we got back Drax pretty much just hung out and so did I until Dave came home.

I again was having trouble with the motivation so I waited until 730pm ish to start my workout, I did glutes and abs and now my butt cheeks hurt! That’s a good thing though! Dave and I started to watch Space Force and made dinner which I snacked too much yesterday but that’s okay, it’s only my first week.

Dave ended up falling asleep on the couch and I was tired too so we went to bed early (we’re getting old).

There was a creepy storm here though.

My friend who faces the other way told me the sky looked black so I went onto my balcony to see. It was pretty cool to watch but the storm was lame, my dog wasn’t even scared.

That’s it, that’s all!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Sixty-Nine

Welcome to Day Sixty-Nine!

Dave and I woke up at 5:30am in hopes to buy shoes. Yes, you read that right, to buy shoes. Ben & Jerry’s teamed up with Nike to make a limited edition shoe, it went on sale in Canada this morning at 6am.

Those are the bad ass shoes that we failed to get. In the morning it was looking good, I got onto the site, logged in, pick the size and added them to my cart then all of the sudden something pops up saying enter your phone number and a code will be sent to you as extra security. Bullshit. What happens when you send a million text messages all at once? It gets jammed and that’s exactly what happened. Eventually on my screen it said all sold out so we lost our chance! It sucks but it happens; they sold out in 11mins!

Part of the reason why Dave wanted them was because the shoe box was in the shape of a Ben & Jerry’s pint. The box is now a collectible too! It is pretty good and they were only $135 CAD.

Dave we failed our mission we all went back to bed until Dave had to get up for work, I of course kept sleeping until Dave walked out the door because Drax needed to go out and wanted to be fed. I started my day early at 7:30am which was kinda good because Drax got a walk in before it got to 40 degrees.

The rest of the day was a write off, I didn’t do much, I didn’t even workout because I was so sore today. Tomorrow I will be back at it but I did get a 2k walk in tonight with Drax before it got dark. I did attempt to make a mask for myself since the ones I ordered have yet to show up so at least I have one for now. I was thinking of going to a coin car wash tomorrow to clean my car and then NOT park in my parking spot since the tree I park under RAINS down berrys, twigs and bird shit. I also need to vaccum all the dog hair out of the car so there isn’t too much build up of it. That might be the plan, not sure yet.

That’s all I got today.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Sixty-Seven & Sixty-Eight

Day Sixty-Seven.

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.

Day Sixty-Eight.

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!

That’s all for today.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Sixty-Six

Welp.

Today was semi productive day, this morning Drax didn’t want to walk as it was already 20 degrees at 9am. This weather is insane and it’s only going to get worse next week.

Dave and I finally got the AC unit from my Mum’s cause she is the bomb, came back to installed it and now we’re ready for the heat wave to come aka tomorrow!

Tomorrow I may be going to my Dad’s to get my tires changed over saving me some money, plus I’ll get to see my Dad and the doggos.

The rest of the day not much was done besides hanging out and watching tv, then Dave and I got a complaint saying we were loud all day, banging things even though we were not. The man below us is old and apparently complains about everything, which we were warned of when moving in but he seriously needs to calm down. In the evening we took Drax for his longer walk so he was cool and he could actually get some exercise in.

That’s all I’ve got today!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Sixty-Five

Good evening!

The weather was absolutely beautiful today and a little bit on the hot side! It was way to hot for Drax today so his walks were limited but later on at night we took him out and he was having a blast in the cool air.

Drax actually got a new collar since he’s growing so much his old one was too tight and he only wore it outside since it has his tags on it. Dave also got him a cooling mat, this thing is pretty cool and even I want to lay on it!

Today I did go to Walmart to get shirts and yoga pants since my other ones are more for louging around. There’s one shirt I need to return or just lose the weight and I love the yoga pants. Most likely will be going back for more of those!

Today I said I would do a plant update so here it goes!

So here we have our regular plants, arugula, spinach, garlic and rosemary. They are growing wild and I’m excited.

This is my pumpkin that is growing crazy! I know it’s going to be super vine like before I get any pumpkins so I’ll just keep taking care of it!

We planted some lettuce! They are just little babies but I’m excited for this. Never planted this before so we’ll see how this goes! Now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for….who has the best sunflower…still in progress…drumroll please!

On the left we have Dave’s and on the right is yours truely. Baby sunflowers! So cute but it’s turning into a close competition! They are standing on their own currently and I will most definetly need to get bigger pots for them ass they get bigger.

That’s all I have for today, not much else was done!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Fifty-Seven

Rain, rain go away!

Surprisingly my head only hurt a little bit today. This morning Dave and I did some grocery shopping, super proud of us for staying on budget! Came home to put it all away then walk Drax.

I felt like baking so I finally made banana bread with chocolate chips! Ask me how my weight is going🙄😩.

Once that was done I watched Self Made on Netflix. It’s so good, it’s a limited series so there’s only like 6-7 episodes but go watch it.

The rest of the evening was history so I won’t bore you. I slept on my arm weird last night (at least that’s what I think), now in get pains in my one shoulder blade. Hopefully tomorrow it’ll be fine!

That’s pretty much it for today.

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-Five

I could not keep my eyes open last night!

I didn’t write last night because I was SO tired, the night before I didn’t sleep well so it hit me like a brick last night. Yesterday was a typical boring day, the weather was chilly again but not too bad.

Dave and I didn’t do much, we did watch the Purge: Election Year. Dave is scared of horror/thriller movies but one day he randomly put on The Purge tv show and he was fine with it. I told him we should watch all the movies that go with it, it took him awhile but eventually he did it. Election Year is the third movie so I believe there is one more then the new one comes out possible. I’m not sure!

After the movie my neighbour and I hand dinner! We always have these salads that are yummy so we said we’d have a salad night. It’s spinach, broccoli, red onion, green peppers, hard boiled egg, and usual chicken but last night we had salmon, oh you you can’t forget the dressing but I can’t remember what goes in it. It’s yummy.
The rest of the night was just drinking and chatting while entertaining Drax since I deicided to bring him along.

This quarantine is definitely messing with dogs because Drax is extremely whiney and I’ve heard of other people’s dogs being the same way. Thankfully Dave is going back to work next week so that is a start to getting back to normal. If I got out that means Drax gets a break from both of us and gets use to being alone again. Slowly life is getting back to normal!

After dinner I went to bed becaue I couldn’t stay away anymore. I couldn’t believe how tired I was last night, but now I’m nice and refreshed!

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.
