AtoZ/What Day is it Anyway? Friday, April 17th, 2020 – Oh, Right



My day today so far–10:57pm: 

Oh, right. I’m supposed to write a post for AtoZ and my own WDIIA thing. In my own defense, it’s been a day. A tiring day. You know the kind.

Alex and I managed to get out for a walk this afternoon. We went past the little library, and the roll of toilet paper was either still there, or someone has been restocking it.

I spent another hour and a half in my mother’s room at the retirement home. Made another small dent in the packing. She has SO much fabric and half-done sewing and quilting projects that I don’t know what to do with. I suppose I should give most of it away, but this is a terrible time to try to do it. The home is going to store the big stuff until the lockdown is finished, so I don’t have to worry about carrying that out of there by myself.

I called the hospital today to try to talk to my mum. The nurse said she’s been very tired all day. She put me through to the room, but my mother didn’t pick up.

I’ll try to do better tomorrow with the blogging thing.

Stay safe and healthy, my friends.

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!

  1. You have a lot on your plate right now. Don’t feel guilty about the blogging. Hope your Mum is ok.

  2. Wow, I am out of words during this very difficult situation and uncertainty. Please stay strong, and listen to music, mediate. You are always in my prayers.


  3. Tough stuff all the way around and the quarantine doesn’t help at all. Make sure you get your rest too.

  5. That must be very hard. Emotional stuff wears a person out. Physical stuff, packing, is only fun if you are choosing to move. Someone else’s stuff is always harder. Too many things connected. Hugs, my friend. I’m amazed that you are able to blog at all with all you are going through.

  7. I think it has been two days here, not one. The hours run together.
    It is hard packing up things. Been there. You are smart to be doing it in bits and pieces.
    Stay safe.


  8. Hope you can get the packing done soon. Take care Linda.
