Quarantine

Hey y’all. It’s been a while. I’m sorry I haven’t written a whole lot. With this whole thing that’s been going on, it’s been next to impossible to try and even be creative in coming up with my next blog post, or an old story about thing that hapened many years ago.

It’s not that I haven’t been trying because believe you me, I’ve got loads of half written blogs that are waiting to be finished. I just haven’t been able to take that final step to completion of anything. It’s like every time I come up with a grand idea for a post, I will get half way, change everything, and then lose interest.

Just a little update on how things are going.

I’ve been working, well, attempting to work from home. Each day that passes my desire to do anything work related dwindles by a small percentage. I don’t want this to sound like I’m complaining, because I’m not. I understand that there are people out there who are unable to work, and feel as though they are being forced to remain home in order for those in “power” to advance their political agenda.

I am by no means trying to stir anything up as I hate talking politics in regards to the goings on of the world. This is just a life update on yours truly.

I like my job, I really do, and I hate to admit this, but I’m just not as productive when I’m in a more “homey” environment. Not that being in an office is “uncomfortable”, I just feel as though my productivity is at its heighest when I’m in the office because I don’t have the temptation of getting up and moving to the couch, or walking to the fridge to get a snack.

I know, it sounds strange. How can someone enjoy getting up each morning, driving 20-30 minutes back and forth from work to home every day?

The drive to and from work gives me a chance to prepare myself for the day ahead, and to decompress from the day I just had. Going from bed, to the kitchen, to the dining room table where my set up is, just does not have the same effect. Nor does, going from the dining room table to the couch when my clock out. I don’t feel the same. Sure going outside on a walk after work helps transition from work to my evening routine, but it’s just not the same.

I will say, that for the most part, I’ve been able to keep things relatively the same. And for that I am truly thankful. The routine that I’m used to has not changed much outside of not driving to and from work. I still meal prep on weekends, I walk on my normal break time and on lunch, I am still able to workout the way I normally would be able to, thank goodness.

I know, I won’t die if I miss a workout, but you know what? Lifting weights is something that keeps me sane and in the right head space. So let’s all be grateful that I’m not completely off my rocker.

All in all, I’m happy with what I am able to do, I’m healthy, I’m still working, and that’s what truly matters, right?
