Does Coronavirus have you down? Are you wondering what you might do? Never fear! Here are 3 things I’m doing to distract myself from everything shutting down…
- I’m drinking more coffee. If cappuccinos weren’t so confounding expensive, I’d drive myself to a drive-thru and drink them all day long. On second thought, I am a Catholic, and we’re suppose to practice moderation and all that, so maybe I’d limit myself to two–one at 6am and one at noon, to ward off that darn Noon Day Devil–but as it is, I’m lucky if I get one a week. In any case, coffee helps, I’m telling you.
- I’m listening to Mariah Carey when my children aren’t around, so like during “Quiet Time.” Naturally I’m a secret Mariah Carey admirer. I can’t help myself. I grew up blasting her music and singing at the top of lungs with my sister. I know, I know, you’re going to remind me that she dresses scandalously and has terrible lyrics/music and all that, but I am a weak individual. Mea culpa. I’ve written about it HERE. Pray for me.
3. I’m painting, and I hate painting. It’s the worst. And every single house we move into always requires it. How about you? Are there any home projects that you need to get done? Now’s the time!
BTW…the only way to survive such everlastingly tedious housework is to drink cappuccinos and blast THIS. You know what this song is really about, right? Not having enough coffee, of course.
