What Day is it Anyway? Sunday, March 22nd, 2020

My day today so far–11:47am: 

Slept in a bit this morning. I had a weird dream, but I can’t for the life of me remember what it was. Don’t you hate it when that happens?

Anyway, that’s why I’m a little bit late this morning.

My eldest son works as a baker at Tim Horton’s. His shift is normally 3am to 11, but they sent him home early. Even though only the drive-thru is open, people seem to be taking the social distancing thing seriously. He said they had about 10 customers in six hours, and there were still baked goods left from the morning before when he went in. Granted it’s Sunday, and all the churches are closed. But Saturday must have been slow too.

Alex and I are planning to go out walking again. I’ll try to take photos. I wish he’d let us go the other way and walk down by the water (unless there are lots of people there, in which case we’d have to nix that idea), but walking around the block is good too.

The heartburn is getting better, it seems. I’ve fallen in love with Tums and have to resist the temptation to not eat them just for the taste.

Yesterday:

Yesterday was another 11K-step day! I keep forgetting to time our walks. Alex goes pretty slow, so I suspect 11K steps took us about two and a half or three hours. Didn’t get any photos, but here’s an old one of what I’m looking forward to.

Why I’m writing this post:

Because if you’re like me and stuck at home already, or if you’re going to be like me soon, the days of the week are going to be hell to keep track of. We have a wonderful community here on WordPress and all over the Internet as well, and I’m sure many people are feeling nervous and/or isolated. I want to make sure every one of us has somewhere to congregate and someone to talk to.

I want everyone to know that you can start discussions with each other in the comments, and if you’d like to write your own “What Day is it Anyway?” post, you can link to this one. Hashtag #WDIIA.

Let’s keep in touch!

  2. You are inspiring me to take my cell when I start my real walks tomorrow. Everyone wants to see the sagebrush! Just kidding. But I love that you are finding ways to stay sane and healthy! I like this prompt. It is making me think more about my life and what I want to do. Bless you and your family!

  9. All good here so far. working for the NHS right now is like running a marathon every day!
    Our family have been in discussions to make sure everyone has what they need financially, emotionally etc during coming months.

    I have received so much encouragement from family and friends.

    I have kept myself away from people recently. I stopped using public transport three weeks ago and stopped going to cafes or even using the canteen at work. I take a flask and water bottle to work and my sandwiches.

    Work is a fifteen minutes walk away – thank goodness!
    I get to see spring flowers on the way and I sing to myself to give my heart a lift because I know how tough the day will be. Our patients are thanking us for our hard work with biscuits and chocolates – I keep telling them the best way to thank us is with smiles…butt if they have any spare toilet rolls they could gift us that would be awesome!

    It’s stressful times for many but I keep reminding them that the sacrifices they are making are beautiful. They are showing respect and appreciation for the precious gift of life. That will be remembered. To all those who are showing unselfish love and respect for life I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU!!!

    ❤ ❤ ❤

  10. I’ve been going out for more walks too. I live a few minutes from the sea front which is nice but having to go at odd times to avoid too many people!
