Day 31 – I need a lot more erasers ✏️

I skipped posting yesterday. I was Spring Breaking with virtual yoga, too many carbs, and a lot of painting.

I went and dropped off my donation masks yesterday and got a nice call from Representative Danielle Friel Otten’s office today. They were facilitating where to make the donations and very nice to work with.

I also remembered to put the trash out on my own and I am feeling quite good about myself.


Today I am back to work and trying to get back in some kind of “normal” routine and got up early, showered and put on clothes (non pajamas) for the day. Why does that feel like quite the accomplishment?!

I worked on updating my planner – yes, I have a paper one like a pioneer. I erased our summer vacation and any remaining school activities.

I am leaving graduation on there for now.


I received my “aid” check, which I did not expect and don’t actually need.

$134 – which isn’t going to make or break me – as I am sure the full $1200 isn’t going to keep anyone afloat.

I donated it to the Food Bank (and remembered to do the matching gift paperwork for this and my previous donations.) Thank you to my generous friend who said that’s what she would do – it felt better than pocketing it.


Went for an outside walk for the first time in several days. I forgot how important that is and need to make a point of getting out there on the regular.


Tonight I have a Google Hangout (which I did not realize was still a thing) to learn how to be a dog foster parent. It seems unlikely that we are actually getting a quarandog since we need one sure to not see Dixie as a tasty little snack. Small dogs apparently don’t need a lot of foster care. But we’re trying.

After that I have a virtual parent panel for one of Jack’s college options. So much virtual information…

Hope you had a good day – hang in there!
