What Day is it Anyway? Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

27 Comments

My day today so far–10:56am: 

Another day of being woken up by Alex, excited to start his school work. I’m attempting to get him to work independently, but he keeps asking me to watch his videos. I really shouldn’t complain though. We’re fortunate to have this means of communicating with the outside world.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the positives that might come out of this whole ordeal. Maybe it will teach us to be less wasteful, having so many things we can’t just pop out and pick up. In a time when we’re starting to forget what our parents who lived through WWII taught us, we’re learning first hand.

I can envision all of us learning to appreciate our families more–those we’re in forced proximity with, and those we can’t visit. And maybe it will teach those of us who have never worked in front-line retail to respect those who do.

What positives do you see coming from this?

In heartburn news, I’m just getting used to it. As one does. I won’t update again unless anything changes, which it probably won’t since I’m not giving up my coffee, aka nectar of the gods.

Yesterday:

We stayed in all day yesterday. Didn’t even get out of our pjs. I’ll try today to take a photo for tomorrow’s One-Liner Wednesday, which will be in place of #WDIIA. Maybe. I might do both.

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!

  5. I had to go on Prilosec as my heartburn never seemed to go away no matter what. No food, any type of food, worry, calm. It was always there. I can make it worse by worrying now that I am on the stuff. So I know that contributes. But it seems a part of my life now. I hope you find some answers. I love that Alex is so excited about learning. Hang in there.

  7. What’s positive is this right here. Staying connected and sharing our experience. Thank you Linda for giving us this forum.

  8. I went decaf 10+ years ago, but I often have a cup of regular in the morning. Tea at night for me.
    So far, I can report that the pets are pleased with the people being home 🙂

  9. I was thinking the exact same thing earlier! I never considered myself that wasteful but now when I’m getting something to eat instead of grabbing whatever I fancy I am checking what needs to be used first.

  10. I agree about the positive lessons we can learn from this. I think the situation will need to get worse though before we truly learn. Just yesterday, I heard a historian compare the situation in the Netherlands (except for Brabatnt, where there are lots of COVID-19 cases) to the “phony war” phase of WWII, when England had already declared war on Nazi Germany but the Netherlands wasn’t yet in the fight. People here, myself included, are generally not as concerned as we should be.

    Glad we do have the Internet though. I like the way Alex is excited about it.

  11. I hope we will have more respect for science. I hope we understand that everyone depends on the people with the lowest paying jobs for survival. I hope we learn that everyone is as deserving of life and health as the next person.

  14. That’s a great idea Linda. When you think about it, staying inside can be beneficial when it comes to decluttering and becoming more organized. On the other hand, getting outside to take a power walk can make a world of difference too.

  18. Sometimes the best we can do is look for the good inside the bad. Somedays we have to look really, really hard. 😉 Hang in there.

  23. I’m sorry about your heartburn, have you tried Pepcid? Also, maybe going keto or paleo would help you, not knowing your diet, I can’t say for sure. You could still have your beloved coffee, it would just be prepared differently. Let me know what you think, I’ll help if you’re open to that.
