Day 1 of Quarantine

Postby Quarantined Mata (13429328) » Wed Mar 18, 2020 4:10 pm

It's only 2 PM and I already bit my nails, moved the furniture around and tried new hairdos on my cats.

What about you?

My Day 1 - So decided I would be v. smart and go to a mega Supermarket for the essentials this morning at 6am - alarm set, get into car and arrive only to find that there is a queue to get in. People had been outside the doors from 3am!!!!!!!

Not to worry I think, its just opened right.... shelves were already cleared out!! And to top it all, waited in line for 2.5hrs to check out with only a basket of groceries. I had to laugh.

Silver Lining:- got to chat with some new people and laugh away the 2hrs at some of the panic buying that was going on around us. Crazy crazy crazy times.

Hey Queen Mata! I hope you're doing well. We're only stepping outside when it's really necessary to do so, I did well the first few days but today has been very rough so far, can't find anything to entertain myself so I'm just walking around the house, finding patterns in walls, creating imaginary friends etc etc...

I did venture out for a walk for sanity, after 6 months of being almost house bound this was not the best timing to say the least, but lots of silver linings, I'm now healthy and and thankful for what I have. Stay safe Mata we've got this :heart:

It sure is a big change, especially if you aren't naturally an introvert and homebody kind of person.
While not quarantined, I've been in hospital and at home for 2 1/2 weeks and at times it does get a little boring.
We have a curfew here and therefore not allowed to meet anyone. Missing my boyfriend, especially.
Otherwise picking up on some new shows, reading two books my mom has lent me when I last visited, and
catching up on sleep. On work days (working full time with lots of overtime) I am lucky if I get 6 hours of sleep.
Now I get 8 and more when needed. Pain meds make me sleepier than usual.
There will be an end to this, whenever that will be, and then we may have a higher appreciation for things we took for granted before. :heart:

I did OK for a while, but I had a camping trip planned and decided to go for it. So glad I did. We are now isolated in a pine forest by a lake. We only go to town for food. I can fish and hike and don't have to see anyone all day long. It has really broken up the monotony of 9 days at the house. I'm here til Sunday and am afraid I won't want to go home.

*sigh*

Thank God we have Yoworld to keep us sane!
I haven’t been feeling to do much of anything other than eating, napping & playing Yoworld

I want & miss our normal lives before this pandemic

Thank you, guys for sharing.

It's day 10 here and it hasn't been easy. I'm working from home, so, I have to be next to the computer from 9 to 6:30. It's not like being in the office, the bathroom here is only a few steps away and I can't visit my work friends at their desks. :'(

These days I've been thinking of my big depression episodes, when all I did was to stay home and watch TV and play Yo all day. I definitely don't want to go back to them, and I try to wake up at 6:30 like always, take a shower, read the news, have breakfast, whatever keeps my routine alive, but boy, is it hard. The hardest part is not being tired at all at night and having trouble falling asleep, but I try to stay positive about it.

Stay safe, guys. Let's do what we have to do to get out of this. :hug: :hug:

Fermit, Nick, it's so good to see you both :hug:

Day 7 of lockdown here. Been a very long week...I have a teenager that is either sullen or argumentative. My older daughter is a pre-school teacher and is still working half hours since some of the parents are nurses, first responders, etc. I worry about her still being 'out there'. :sad:

I haven't left the house at all. Compromised lung issues, diabetes and hypertension puts me in the danger zone. :sick:

I am thankful for Yo to help pass the time. I've also been catching up on missed tv shows, read a couple good books, actually wrote a couple note cards to distant friends. We will manage...but I sure hope this doesnt last for weeks and weeks.. :silly:

Thank you to anyone who is on the front lines!! We appreciate you! :rose:
