WARNING: INCESSANT FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS RANT AHEAD
I am only going to talk about the brevity of coronavirus. I have been holed up for a week, like I was advised, for my daughter’s spring break. We had intended to go camping to some state parks but all the damned rain kept us from it. I am clinically depressed and maybe on the edge of hysteria because I am an extrovert. My diet has gone to hell. I haven’t been able to visit my gym which I need because I only have a jump rope and no other equipment to throw around. I’m tired of seeing everyone on the fucking beach this week because it is socially irresponsible. I’m scrambling for childcare since The Precious’ school is “indefinitely” closed. And I hope enough people make appointments for the frivolity of dermatology so I can pay my bills. What a CF.
“Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how’d you like the play?”
We did make it out to a state park though. The selected image is at Roman Nose state park. We hiked. Biked. And thought about fishing. I could regale you with stories of my youthful summers spent here. So, 1 of 33 down.
Things that made me smile this week:
- We can all agree. We need this man in our life. Best twitter account this week. His hashtags are a treasure. I like how pragmatic and self deprecating he is.
- We may have not been able to be out camping but this website has several live streaming cams of wildlife and natural phenomena we all need.
And since I have been on my computer too much, clothing!
- I am excited to try this brand of clothing. Sustainably made, they have a goal to plant 1 billion trees by the year 2030 and support several ecosystem projects globally.
- I did clean out my closet during my quarantine because so much of it was old and tattered or I hadn’t worn it since Scarlett was born. I’m a cliche and love athleisure since I don’t like to dress up, so this brand looks incredible. Thoughts?
- Another environmental company with goods for sale, their mission is to support more B corps, invest with more women, and practice fair trade and labor (among many other things).
- I visited Austin in 2015 with a group of college girlfriends and purchased some gorgeous jewelry from a local store that is simple, well made and idiosyncratic.
- Lunya values the quality of our sleepwear in these inspiring pieces and intend to get my hands on some soon to ride out the rest of my social distancing.
We start homeschool this week which is kind of a drag for my girl. Being an only child is tough during a pandemic. We’ll get through this together. Right?
