What Day is it Anyway? #SoCS Edition Saturday, March 21st, 2020


Straying from the setup of my usual #WDIIA posts because I don’t want to box myself in while writing stream of consciousness style. We’ll be back to regular programming tomorrow.

Regular programming, eh? That’s taken on a whole new meaning. I realized this morning that I couldn’t remember which day I went to the pharmacy to get my prescription this week because everything is the same. I hadn’t realized until now that I remember things mostly in relation to other things I do. Like, for instance, I might have known it was Thursday because it’s the same day Alex goes to his family swim night at the school.

One day blends into the next.

Oh, hey! I discovered something new today. It might be old news to everyone else, but did you know you can have a Netflix party with your distant friends and family? Here’s the link to the site. I haven’t tried it, obviously, but it’s an interesting concept.

It’s a beautiful day, cold but sunny, so we’ll be going out for walks today. I’m not allowed to visit my mother–they’ve closed the home off to everyone but essential workers and families of people who are dying. The good news, I suppose, is that my mother only seems to remember I exist when she needs cigarettes these days, so as long as I keep her in supply, she won’t miss me. I’m assuming this of course, because she never phones me. I’m hesitant to call her, because she’s going to ask me to come and see her, and won’t remember from one minute to the next that I can’t. At least I know she’s safe, which is the main thing.

This social distancing thing is far from welcome, especially since I resolved a few weeks ago to get out more and people-watch for inspiration. But it’s really not so bad. We’ve settled into a boring yet as stimulating-as-possible routine.

We’re adapting, which is, I suppose, the best thing we can possibly do. Do you find the same yet?

  2. Same sense of unreality that you describe. Trying to do as little grocery shopping as possible. We used to have reliable delivery but a bit scetchy now because of decreased stock and increased demand but hope it will improve. We are collectively holding our breath in California waiting for the possible surge/peak next week.


  3. A Netflix party sounds fun! Must check out that site! This social distancing is hell! I am so over it already! But well, we wont be doing anything else for a couple months now! xoox

  5. Apart from not being forced to go out and See People and Do Things occasionally, I hardly notice the difference. When #1 Daughter brought me groceries and left them on the porch and waved at me through the window, that hurt, though. I appreciated her care for us, but that hurt.


  6. My friends and I are looking forward to a movie afar day. Thanks for the link!
    And thanks for the place to check in with everyone while we all live a new normal.

  11. Each day I wake up reminding myself which day it is as the days are beginning to blur with all my family members at home all the time and with me not going out to work.

  13. We are adapting, although being retired for almost 5 months now has made that easier (do not ask my wife to confirm that).

  15. I’m rethinking whether I truly am an introvert – home for three day due to a common cold and stuffed sinuses from pollen allergies ( getting outside, for me, was not the answer to my now closed gym, ugh). I live alone and am starting to get a little stir crazy… But I am working more on a short story I’d been stuck on!

  16. I am still working so MOnday to Friday last week was different from today, but the difference is less as I am not doing a lot of the things I usually do like go to the office and taking kids to school. It is rather odd and disconcerting.
