I'm not sure what I'm going to write today, I just feel as though I need to write.
It's been rainy the past couple of days. Cannot get out to walk. It's so much better walking outside! I do have a treadmill in the basement. I usually take my music with me, or sometimes I'll watch some Netfilx shows on my Kindle while walking. I was scrolling through the main page feed here on Sparkpeople, and someone had posted a youtube video on walking tours through different cities. You watch it while you're walking on your treadmill. I briefly watched a bit of one, looks interesting.
I am on week 5 of my quarantine. I'm a dental assistant. We've had only 2 emergencies so far. It was weird, we were all geared up with our n95 mask, regular mask, gown, glasses... the whole works. We haven't received our face shields yet, then we'll be wearing them as well. I have no idea when we'll be getting back to a full schedule. I think currently we're on a stay at home order til May 8th. I'm wishing people would just stay home around here like they're supposed to. There is a city nearby and the people are just not doing what they're supposed to, they're getting together, going out, having parties and such. Even my neighbor next door... they go out 5 or 6 times a day. Sometimes it's just a couple of them, sometimes it's the whole family. I dunno.
My 11 year old son is having a hard time with the whole ordeal. He's a very social kid. He was sort of okay, until he found out there wasn't going to be any school for the remainder of the school year. Then he just lost it. His school only goes to 6th grade, so he is 'graduating' this year. He's sad he won't get to go through all of that. We do have ourselves following a loose schedule, it has helped greatly. He is doing school work on the computer. But he takes forever! The other night he was working on something til midnight. He should be able to get all of his work done by noon on most days. He's just taking really long 'breaks' and finding things to play with. It's frustrating.
I've been dealing okay with everything so far. This week has been rough though, I just feel like I need to eat everything!... and I ran out of gum! I'm still exercising on my usual schedule, it's just the eating that's getting me this week. I've washed everything that needs to be washed, cleaned the house. I've been studying for a certification test. I actually picked up my knitting yesterday... which I haven't done in quite a while. Yesterday it didn't rain in the afternoon so I cut the grass. I need to do the weed trimming, but it's raining today.
Last night I had a hard time getting to sleep... between my husband and my cat, it was difficult! My cat was purring so loud and for a rather long time! And my husband is a snorer. I usually try to go to bed before him so that I'm asleep before he starts snoring, but I just couldn't get to sleep last night. I have Misophonia, the snoring is a big trigger for me. This is the first time my cat's purring triggered me, I hope it was a one time thing! I had earplugs in and ear muffs on, and I could still sort of hear them both and sense that they were making noise. So I ended up putting my earbuds in with the muffs over them and listening to my music. And I finally passed out about 2:30am!
The sun just came out through the clouds! I needed that. We'll have to take advantage and get out there for a walk after dinner. Thanks for listening to my vent.
