Corona Days

The social distancing measures recommended (mandated?) by the government and other authorities are an introvert’s dream. I am actually enjoying staying at home. The apartment is cleaner and more organized than it has been in weeks, I am saving money by not eating at restaurants or driving as much, and I have no excuse to ignore all the books on my shelves in favor of books on the library’s shelves. I also get to avoid the meaningless break room banter at work, because I have been working from home since March 16.

All that said, I recognize that my position is extremely fortunate. I am so grateful to have a job that allows me to work from home. I am also very grateful to my in-laws and husband, who watch my son every day so I can work. I wake up in the mornings and thank God.

I’m sure you have all been hearing variants on “stay healthy,” “practice self-care so you don’t get too stressed” (ooh, I dislike the term “self-care”), “God is imposing a Great Lent on us, and we heathens deserve it,” and “wash your hands, ya filthy animal.” There really isn’t much more I can say that hasn’t already been said, and I don’t want to take someone else’s words and try to make them better.

So… Happy Easter! No matter what, there is hope in the Resurrection.

  1. Homebody here as well, but working remotely is still quite hard for me because I have an incredibly active toddler who wants everyone to join in every overactive thing she does
