Confession… Quarantine Version (7 days 1)


Confession day… blog site write-up sequence in which I share the things I’ve finished or assumed this week that I come to feel a lil guilty about. And in the existing Coronavirus Social Distancing situation – I simply cannot go to confession at church (not that I’ve went considering that in all probability 12th grade?). So I need you to study this and reassure me that all is forgiven. K. Thanks.


Confession – Coronavirus Quarantine Edition Week 1

Updated to add: I wrote this In advance of California Governor announced the ‘stay at home’ order all over the state yesterday.

(This weblog publish series applied to be on Thursdays, but any working day is a good working day to confess, right?)

I point out anything I ordered on Amazon but supplied the simple fact that I purchased toilet paper past 7 days and the delivery has been delayed because of to ”weather or normal disaster” – I really do not know when/if I’ll truly get it.

I’ve listened to Amazon is prioritizing vital objects for delivery and toilet paper really should be on that light-weight, suitable?


My stage is – I never have bathroom paper. And I never know if I’ll get the other product I ordered yesterday.

I come to feel the require to set ‘week 1’ in the title as there may possibly be a good deal of confessions to occur if the social distancing predicament stays in put for a lengthy time. I hope not though…

All right, back to the confessions…

>> I was mistaken about residing at AirBnBs (or equivalent rentals) as I looked for a new position.

On the lookout for quick term rentals as I’m browsing for a long phrase spot to acquire or hire usually takes a large amount for a longer time and is a great deal much more high priced than I understood.

Living out of my suitcase whilst on the lookout for a new apartment / condominium / area to are living – is NOT as fun and straightforward as I considered it’d be. Seeking for a place on AirBnB, VRBO or even real estate listings usually takes A Great deal of time.

I’ve booked spots for 2 to 5 months at a time. And as a continue to be gets near to the conclusion I commence wanting for the up coming (regional) spot I’d like to look at out for a while (this is in an effort to get to know neighborhoods to see wherever I’d like to purchase or rent very long time period).

Very well, seeking for a location that is in the region, rate assortment, runner welcoming, accepts animals, protected and readily available for the dates I want it – will take days. I have invested various hrs every single day seeking all the holiday and rental internet sites when it’s time for my upcoming temporary shift.

A lot of sites don’t acquire canines, really do not have at the very least a couple of weeks readily available, are way much too expensive, aren’t in a safe location… so I have to maintain altering my lookup place, value, dates, etc… in hopes of reserving something.


>> I nonetheless adore minimalism but I like maximalism when it will come to meals and rest room paper. 

The minimalist existence is terrific! Other than it is not excellent when there is a throughout the world pandemic and orders to quarantine yourself at residence. I made use of to have a absolutely stocked pantry and loads of excess emergency products and toiletries. But living with considerably less indicates I got rid of so much of these items I kept on hand ‘just in case’.

>> I really do not have a mattress, but I just purchased a treadmill…

I’m moving into my parents’ studio apartment casita. When I moved out of my condominium I donated or gave away all my furnishings. And I’ve been keeping furnished areas so it’s not a detail. But now that I’m transferring into a for a longer time time period put – I will need a mattress.

And in my protection – I did end at IKEA to look at them yesterday. But I was turned absent for the reason that of the COVID19 predicament.

So I did what any red-blooded redheaded Mexican marathon runner would do… I went property and purchased a treadmill.

I read that there could possibly be a ‘shelter in place’ get and I bought worried that I would not be able to run. So I purchased a treadmill and went wanting for my air mattress to use as a bed for now.

Priorities, correct?


>> I’ve never ever confirmed an appt in my lifetime. 

When I have a dentist appointment, the business office calls and texts me to confirm a 7 days just before the scheduled time. Then, they phone and text again a few days before AND the working day right before. The messages talk to me to reply to affirm the appointment. I By no means ensure. I really don’t know why, I just can not.

I truly feel like if I ensure anything will come up and I’ll miss out on the appointment and then – not only did I overlook the appointment, but now I’m also a liar mainly because I verified it!!

So I just really do not answer at all.

But now with the Coronavirus social distancing circumstance I’m considering my approaching appointment is heading to be cancelled and all I can imagine about is whether or not or not they are heading to information me to cancel or if it is nevertheless scheduled.

Note: One particular time one particular of the receptionists full on questioned me why I didn’t answer at all to any of the messages… I utilized to go every thirty day period when I was doing Invisalign. I guess they ended up obtaining aggravated by my absence of reaction thirty day period right after month. That’s why I even know it was an challenge – prior to her comment I just thought it was quick breezy and no 1 cared.

>> I purchased a 500 piece puzzle.

Apparently I was experience really ambitious about my puzzle building qualities and/or thought I’d get bored quite speedy with the quarantine. So I ducked into Marshall’s to locate some board games to perform with my family. The only issue they experienced was a 500 piece puzzle.

Observe: I’ve under no circumstances set together a puzzle myself. The plan kinda obtained in my head considering that my friend’s mother bought a puzzle for Christmas and we begun it due to the fact she wasn’t super into it.

So when I saw the puzzle at Marshall’s and realized it was my only solution – I purchased it! And now I definitely want to set it together mainly because

a. I’m genuinely curious how tough it is

b. I imagine it would be a excellent physical exercise for my brain (which ordinarily only thinks about functioning & feeding on)

c. I have absolutely nothing else to do as I can not even slumber throughout the quarantine considering the fact that I Don’t HAVE A Mattress.

Now you go… What’s your confession of the working day??

Please take treatment of you. Be risk-free. Be courageous.
