COVID-19 Self Distancing Diary - Day 7 // Ready for the Island

Date: 3/24/2020
Got up at: 5:45am
Got dressed: Yes!
Started to work: 7:00am
Cups of coffee: I'd say 6...

This day marks one week in self-quarantine and working remotely. I feel super bad for the last two days, mentally all this is really taking a toll on me. Maybe all I need is a good night's sleep. But anxiety took over for the last two nights. I'm exhausted, and it's only Tuesday. 

I see all the memes and social media posts from people "working" from home doing random non-work-related things pretty much all day. And it makes me wonder if I'm just one of very few actually still putting in 8+ hours of work every day? 


...switching desks from my actual office to the kitchen table and back...

I have to keep the information rolling, organize stuff.. Today I attended an important webinar. I'm stressed, overwhelmed, and tired. Maybe it will take a few more days for everything to adjust, but then again so much is happening every day and I work on my never ending to-do list, crossing off, adding... 

Later tonight I will most definitely go for a walk outside, far away from other humans besides the one I share my life (and corona bubble) with.

COVID-19 Self Distancing Diary - Day 5 & 6 // ...when I sent off my spit!

Date: 3/22/2020
Got up at: honestly no idea!
Got dressed: Yes!
Started to work: Never. It's the weekend. Much needed.
Cups of coffee: 5?

Sunday I tried to stay away from the internet and TV (news) as much as possible, so nothing noteworthy happened...

Date: 3/23/2020
Got up at: 5:40am
Got dressed: Yes!
Started to work: 7:03am
Cups of coffee: 4

Another busy day working from home. I'm thankful the flow of projects doesn't die down. I hope some of the things we discussed this morning can be put into place, soon. The workday flew by - before I even knew it it was 4pm and I clocked out. On to some more projects tomorrow.

We've had our first confirmed COVID-19 case in our county yesterday, and today another one was added. So even here in rural southern Arkansas that bish made its grand entrance. I feel uneasier by the day, and just try to stay away from people as much as I can.

One odd thing I did today: I sent off my spit. Yep. And thanks to my spit, some of you might find even deeper roots in Germany, soon! I started using Ancestry.com about two years ago, and I keep adding, researching, and looking ever since. I never paid to get the full access, but when St. Patrick's Day came around I found the $59 offer in my e-mail and ordered my DNA kit right away!

It came with two weeks of full access to everything, so pretty much every night I was browsing and going through hints. I love it and knowing a little more about my ancestors makes me feel good and more "rooted" if that makes any sense?

COVID-19 Self Distancing Diary - Day 4 // A Productive Day!

Date: 3/21/2020
Got up at: honestly no idea!
Got dressed: Yes!
Started to work: Never. It's the weekend. Much needed.
Cups of coffee: 4-ish

I slept in today and feel pretty good. After some coffee and video game time, I finally worked on a little project I wanted to do for quite some time now. Since Justin inherited his granny's house and we've fixed up the bathroom, I took one of the drawers from the old vanity, ordered some super cure hair pin legs, and voila:

I did some pricing and researching at Home Depot, on eBay, and Amazon - and I found these were the best price and the quality is really good! The are super sturdy and available in several lengths. You can find them here:



I'm pretty happy with my new side table! I can put it to good use as a plant stand and it will probably give my salt lamp a new home, too.
