What I Did in Quarantine

I head back to work full time on Monday after working minimally for two and half months. At first I hated quarantine. I hated how it made it impossible to go on my Greece trip and how it interrupted my routine. However,  I grew to love it, and I will always cherish the time I've had for myself and the extra time I've spent with Nick.

I was somewhat productive and somewhat not, but here's what I did in quarantine.


// created a family tree and found out I have ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary and Civil wars //

// quality time with Nick and Scout // 

// celebrated Scout's 11th birthday //

// digitized my CDs/music //

//  broke quarantine to have Easter with my brother-in-law, sister-in-law, and niece //

// organized the pantry //

// blogged consistently twice a week and found and followed new blog/gers //

// read (post coming later) //

 // bought a new-to-me car //

// tried to keep up with housework and stay sane //

// fled Michigan to Indiana, a 'free-to-roam' state, and visited the famous Shipsewana Flea Market for a fun day trip //

  1. I am also thankful for the quarantine time! It’s given me the opportunity to reassess everything! Hope your first day back goes well!

  2. You did a lot in quarantine. I love Subaru's sooo much!! Yay for a new to you car. I can't believe you get to go back to work on Monday. We are still working from home for at least another week or two. Have a great weekend!

  3. We both got new cars!!! Back to work. Oh my goodness. That's good news. I too have been thoroughly enjoying the time with MJ. Such a bummer about you trip though! We still haven't decided about ours.
