Saturday

As I write this blog post, Drew is vacuuming. Our lives are so exciting right now.  I am just glad we are able to be together during this time of the coronavirus.

Today, I finally submitted my lit review for my Masters of Education. I feel good about it. I am nervous, but I think it will be okay. I am anxious to receive the final feedback and see my grade. It is a Pass/Fail class. I imagine the only you can fail is if you don’t hand in a lit review, so I have to Pass since I turned one in right? It is hard to believe I have one more semester to go and I graduate in December.

At some point today, Andrew’s parents are dropping off our Easter dinner. His dad made Ham, easter bread, and a few other things. I just have to whip up some scalloped potatoes for us tomorrow and we are set. We are excited for our first Easter dinner by ourselves, but a little sober, because we miss being around our families. Hopefully, we will be able to see everyone soon.

I hope everyone is staying safe and keeping healthy.

Good Friday

Easter is going to look a little different this year due to being encouraged to social distance and stay home. Easter was always special to Andrew and I. He proposed to me in 2014 on Easter weekend.

Today, Andrew took off work, we slept in and went to get iced coffee and donuts from Dunkin since it was free donut Friday. In the late morning, Andrew went for a walk and I stayed in doors and did some ballet barre exercises and some ab work outs. I had a feeling I was going to be a good kind of sore tomorrow.

After my workout, I got a shower and did a little Friday glam. I wanted to put some make up on and some eyelashes.  Then cleaned the house a bit and did some laundry.  When Andrew got back from his walk, he did some more exercises in the basement. My parents stopped by and dropped off an Easter Lily and a box of chocolate covered pretzels and wished us happy easter. I have to keep reminding myself this is temporary, right?

When my parents left, I did another load of laundry. I swear I get so bored I just do laundry for the fun of it. In the early afternoon we ordered fish sandwiches from a local restaurant. We are trying to support local restaurants during this time. It sucks for everyone right now.

After dinner, we watched more episodes of Buffy the vampire slayer. I finally got him interested into binge watching the show with me from start to finish. I was such fan of Buffy. It is truly a cult classic. We are on Season 3. We have a ways to go. I am not looking forward to the later seasons. I wasn’t a fan of how they ended the show and the whole Buffy and Spike romance.

Social Distancing?

Andrew and I went to the gym yesterday, and they had every other machine roped off with a sign defining social distancing and trying to eliminate the spread of germs. I thought it was a good idea. There were very few people at the gym, but I tried to be considerate of my time on the machines, so others could use them. I think we are all in this together, and need to remember to be kind to one, another.

After the gym, in the late afternoon, Andrew and I decided to go to Primanti’s for green beer. Typically, one would not be able to find a parking space at this location, or a space at the bar. However, we were able to find both ,a parking spot and a space at the bar. We opted for one of the high top tables in the name of social distancing. We ordered our green beer and seemed to be the only ones who were drinking it. Until one girl at the bar was like, “hey, they have green beer!” It seemed as though everyone forgot that we should celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.

Recently, I found out my nationalities through a 23 and me test. I am British and Irish mostly. Also a mix of other nationalities, but mostly British and Irish, so I have to have at least one green beer. We ordered our sandwiches, and enjoyed just getting out for a bit. We were going to be inside for the most part of the week next week working from home. We still plan on trying to go to the gym, as long as it doesn’t close.

Also, I am over going to the store. It is barren anyways; no bread, no milk, no toilet paper, and no organic meat. We went this morning to see if they restocked their shelves. we bought fresh spinach and plan to freeze some, and some organic vegetables. We also managed to get the last bag of frozen organic chicken. It is madness.

I hope everyone is staying safe, using common sense and washing their hands!
