Some Personal Quarantine Observations

Yesterday marked the start of my fifth week in Covid-19 quarantine. 

It’s hard to believe.  I had to check the calendar twice.  Here are a few of my personal observations:

  • I have not used a full tank of gas yet
  • My credit card statement was the lowest it’s been in a long time
  • I don’t need those things from Amazon as much as I thought
  • The number of things you touch when you are out and about is crazy
  • I miss my gym
  • With proper planning one weekly trip to the grocery story is more than enough
  • I am socializing with distant friends now more than ever (thank you Zoom)
  • Health care workers are better people than I will ever be
  • My dog, Scout, is just now realizing that “Daddy” is working from home
  • One thing I forgot to stock up on is trash bags
  • I hate working out at home
  • Being forced to quarantine is an opportunity to think outside the box
  • We are all more creative than we give ourselves credit for
  • The Earth is cleansing itself of human abuse
  • We must first be our own advocates (the government cannot save us from ourselves)
  • I am emotionally triggered by social media so I must safeguard my mind
  • I really hate working out at home
  • I should not have purchased that second bag of Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs
  • This forced and prolonged down time helps me focus on what really matters
  • We can’t change the past, but we can shape the future
  • I don’t want to go “back to normal”
  • I want to take more control of what my future looks like
  • I really miss my gym
