Marking Down the Moments
My family left for a Florida vacation on Friday, March 13. When we came back a few days later the world turned upside down and we were all working from home and self-isolating.
It’s not quite yet been a month, but everyone is finding some sort of new normal. None of us like it. All of us miss our friends, co-workers, sports, movies, restaurants, and so, much more.
The last few days were bright, sunny warm and cold, rainy, and overcast. Today, it’s sunny and cold which feels about right. I was able to take a walk with my wife when it was nice and sneak in a walk with the dog right before the weather turned.
I’ve tried to make the most of this time. I’m still trying to find a proper morning ritual and be as positive as possible during the day to do the kind of work I want to put out into the world.
I thought it might be a good idea to mark down a couple of moments early on that have helped me not be as crazy as I could be during this crazy pandemic:
Spending time with my wife during the day. We’ve taken a couple of walks and spent time watching things we might not have watched otherwise.1
Cleaning up the basement and my home office to be better for all day working and video meetings
Staying mostly away from the news because the rabbit hole of 24-hours of a shitshow would not do my brain any good.
Watching all the new YouTube content pop up from a variety of sources. The mini concerts are the best.
Drinking more water all day
Silly text messages from my friends that have now devolved into a fictional story about the Chupacabra King.
Be well everyone. Stay safe.
Tiger King, I’m looking right at you ↩︎
