Mitch shared a great list of possible activities to engage in during this time of quarantine. I would love to share a few of the specific things that my family and I have done.

 

1. Rearranging my clothes-Since I will not be wearing my “office and court clothes” for at least, six weeks, I rearranged my closet. My casual clothes are now in the front and work wear in the back. I also put aside clothes I haven’t worn in a while for donation. It made me feel like I accomplished a huge task. It also felt like shopping for new clothes without spending the money.

 

 

1. Reading a book that’s special to you-I remember when “Harry Potter” was first published. I read it together with my oldest daughter who was, then, six years old. Thinking about that time makes me smile. So, while we are separated by a quarantine, we are both rereading the “Harry Potter” series “together.”

 

 

 

2. Meditating-At several Gotham meetings I attended, Gotham member Jennifer Shapiro-Lee, shared with us the many benefits of meditation. Since that time, I have been meditating, at least, three times a week. In the past two weeks, I have begun meditating daily. It definitely helps alleviate some of the stress that we are all feeling.

 

 

 

3. Exercising-My youngest daughter, who is home with us, downloaded some exercise apps to do at home. You don’t need machines for these exercises, just weights (although heavy books would suffice). We are exercising together, every other day, for about thirty minutes a day. It is definitely bringing us closer, along with the obvious health benefits.

 

 

 

4. A Jigsaw Puzzle Exchange-As I commented on Mitch’s blog on Saturday, my younger daughter and her friends are doing a jigsaw puzzle exchange. Analogous to a Secret Santa, they each have the name of someone to purchase the puzzle for. Then they each went on Amazon and chose a puzzle they believed their friend would like. The name of the purchaser is revealed when the person receives the puzzle and they will be doing their puzzles “together” through Zoom calling.

 

 

 

5. Do Something for a First Responder-My youngest daughter, and her friends, all Venomed money to their friend who is a nurse. They told her to buy herself coffee through this, or a special meal, from them

 

 

 

This what our family is doing to get through this. What about you?

    very interesting.
    I agree on the garb but its what I usually wear when not suited up.
    Biggest difference is the sharing of information, now daily, almost daily and in yesterday's case, I needed to do a second email.

    We have been cleaning up a bit, everyone is given a chore. My 12 year old was wiping down all the door knobs in the house...Unfortunately after not finding a few items I thought we had, I spent the better part of yesterday trying to order vitamins and other household items on the web. Easy to get caught up in all the hysteria and feel the need to buy what pops up on screen or in your mind. I got what i needed, many on back order and then took a walk. I had also gotten a new phone on Friday, knowing it might be my last chance to do an in person transfer. Still getting that in order, but glad I did it then and got it over with.

    Not sure why the whole blog won't publish. I know I put the whole blog up yesterday and I just tried to edit. Here's the rest of the list:

    2. Reading a book that’s special to you-I remember when “Harry Potter” was first published. I read it together with my oldest daughter who was, then, six years old.
