What Day is it Anyway? Monday, August 17th, 2020


My day today so far–8:25pm

I spent all day yesterday thinking it was Wednesday for some strange reason. So that makes today “Thurmonday” I guess? I had to laugh this morning, though. I woke Alex up at 9am (one of my little pleasures in life after having been woken up by him almost daily since he was born), and the first thing he asked, in a panic, was “What day is it?” Not that it really matters, since every day is the same anyway, but seeing myself in my son is always fun.

It was threatening to rain this morning so we didn’t get out for our walk. The weather is supposed to be gorgeous for the next couple of days, though, so hopefully we’ll get out for longer walks that aren’t at the butt-crack of dawn.

I’ve had the munchies all day today. Do you get those days? It doesn’t help that I picked up a container of chocolate and peanut butter Haagen Dasz on Thursday. It was the only one on the shelf that looked appetizing so I bought it even though I’ve never tried it before. It’s Haagen Dasz–how bad can it be?


It. Is. The. Most. Addictive. Substance. On. The. Planet.

One of the small containers of Haagen Dasz usually lasts me a week. I eat, like, six small spoonfuls a day. This stuff? I’m considering putting a padlock on the freezer door and putting the key upstairs so I at least have to walk up and down the stairs twice every time I go back for more.

I have to make it last ’til shopping day Thursday.

It’s Wednesday today, right? 😉

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 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.

  1. omg! that icecream sounds yummy! I love chocolate, and peanut butter, mmmm!


  2. I started to take the trash to the curb on Monday (it gets picked up on Friday). Maybe Monday was confused.


  3. It’s actually been Tuesday here all day..

    I think, I hope no I am sure it was ! 💜


  4. They have chocolate peanut butter flavor now? I need to get to the store. Like, yesterday. (Which was Wednesday, right? 🙂 )


  5. Not sure it would be a favourite of mine as I’m not a lover of peanut butter. Yes shock horror true fact! lol. Not sure yours will last until shopping day.


  6. Oh yes it’s very addictive!


  7. I have never eaten this ice cream, Linda. I don’t have a sweet tooth at all. I share your views on waking children. Ha!


  8. OMG I was just asking Rich what day it was earlier today! I don’t have a clue at times, my daughter says mark it off on the calendar but does it really matter? The only place I’m going is to the freezer for another Magnum double Raspberry ice cream bar! LOL
