Before I took a break for my birthday, I started a post that naively said something along the lines of “if the virus becomes a bigger issue in the U.S., how will you handle it?” HA HA HA HA HA. I mean, I knew it would come here, but I’m not sure I envisioned anything like this.
For those of you who know me, or have been reading the blog for a while, I am on medication that suppresses my immune system. Yeah, that’s not great timing. So, I’ve basically been self-isolating since Saturday. My amazing husband did the preparedness shop, but otherwise, we’ve been home. I have no idea what day it is anymore. On the upside (knock wood), we always work from home, so that part of life hasn’t changed. Everything else – well, it’s unrecognizable.
So, each day I’m going to pose a question to get tips and to check in with how everyone is doing. Hopefully, some of you play along.
What are you doing today to clean your home that may not be helping, but you need to do it anyway?
I’ll start. While I wash towels and sheets regularly, I’m washing the pillowcases, hand towels and dish towels every day. Is that overkill? Will that really help? I’m not sure. But it feels like I’m helping. I’m also becoming obsessed with cleaning door handles any time my husband comes back from the outside world – it’s not often, but when it happens, I’m like the maid in the “Jetsons.”
I listened to a new podcast: Homeward Bound: Surviving the Coronavirus. It’s by Lesley Fera (yep, “Pretty Little Liars” Lesley) and Ned Mochel. They are hilarious. I want more.
Here is the official description of the podcast and links:
