Day 112.

I didn’t do much today. I had to recover from yesterday’s activities. I stayed up and then I slept in.

The only productive thing I did today was wash the dishes. I always listen to music while doing it. The time tends to go by faster. Clean dishes and great music! It’s a win-win. 🙂

We had Mac’d for dinner. I considered it brunch. Lol. Their offerings are delicious. The one with the hot Cheetos topping was really good. I also had some fries.

Animal Crossing updated! So now we can all swim in the ocean. Very fun! I already have a few sea creatures. My favorites at the moment are the sea star and jellyfish. I can’t wait to collect more.

I just practiced my uke. I was supposed to clean today, but I can save that for tomorrow. It’s going to be a big day. We’re donating our family car from years ago. So many fond memories like our drive up to Portland and Seattle! Road trips were the greatest in the van. Thanks for the memories! ❤️ I’ll always remember The Beatles playing on repeat.

I ordered another mask. This time it’s an Animal Crossing print. It’ll get to me in two weeks. I hope it fits! The owner was very responsive and answered all my questions.

Well, that was my Thursday. This week is flying! I hope y’all had a good one. Take care.

Good night.

Day 107.

Slept in. That’s usually my go to on Saturdays. I played a little bit of Animal Crossing before I went back to sleep. It was the first Bug-Off event today! I caught a few bugs. I ended up with a spider web and a toy centipede. I want the butterfly wallpaper next time. 🙂

I helped make dinner and dessert today. We had tacos and dark chocolate brownies with peanut butter M&M’s. Everything was so good! I just have a bunch to wash, but that’s okay. Totally worth it.

We watched a lot of Gordon Ramsay tonight. His shows are always entertaining. Good stuff.

I’m hoping to sleep early tonight. We’ll see. I’ve just been dealing with a lot of anxiety lately. Trying to stay positive. It’s time to play my uke.

Hope y’all had a great Saturday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 97.

I gotta get back to my exercise routine. I’ve been too busy with other things! Hopefully I can get a workout in tomorrow.

I had a tech appointment today. I went in for an echo, a sonogram of my heart. The mask I brought with me wasn’t allowed. I was able to wear it the last time. I found that a bit odd. They gave me a disposable one and was allowed to proceed to the elevator. The tech was really nice. We discussed everything. I was a bit anxious heading over. I hope everything looks good.🤞🏼 Thankful that our aunt was able to give us a ride.

We did some grocery shopping. I helped unload. I wasn’t allowed to leave the car. Too risky! Yay more food and necessities! 👍🏼 We brought back chicken bakes and hot dogs. The weather was really nice today too so I ordered boba milk tea for the fam.

Animal Crossing update: my island is full! I’m happy with my current villagers. I’m still paying off my current loan and figuring out where to move some buildings. If I only knew where to properly place everything in the beginning. Oh well. Lol. I need bells!

I’m about to practice my uke and heating up my leftover quesadilla. I’m pretty tired. There was a lot going on. I plan to take it easy tomorrow, but remain productive. The week is flying.

Hope your Wednesdays went well! Take care.

Good night.

Day 90.

I was very restless before bed. I eventually fell asleep before 6am I think. A lot has been on my mind. My anxiety has skyrocketed, but I’m trying to breathe through it and not panic.

Our dog woke me up so I was awake by 10am. Played some Animal Crossing before I got up. I decided to make breakfast for the fam. I’ve been wanting to make mochi pancakes since the shelter in place. The recipe was easy to follow. It was delicious! We’ll definitely make it again. 😋

Watched a bit of TV and then I took a much needed nap. Afterwards, I got up to practice yoga and wash some dishes.

I assisted with dinner and we decided to go with comfort food! I don’t feel too bad since I had a good balance of fruits and veggies. My kencko smoothies are helping me. I feel healthier. 🙂

Played a few rounds of Trivial Pursuit. I wasn’t victorious tonight, but it was still a lot of fun.

Now I’m blogging to remember this day. I just finished practicing my uke. Made some errors with the song, but I eventually want to record myself for family and friends.

Just doing my best to stay optimistic during this uncertain time. California will be open again very soon. Maybe that’s what’s making me so anxious. Ahh!

I hope you all had a nice Wednesday. Take care!

Good night.

Day 70.

I was pretty well rested today. Proud of myself for getting a decent night’s sleep.

Animal Crossing as soon as I woke up. It’s fun starting up the game and there’s mail waiting for you. And maybe a surprise visitor on the island. Yay!

Took it easy until I had to get ready for the lab. It’s been 2 months since my last visit. Thankfully I was able to get a ride. Thanks to the bro! It took a little longer since my other orders weren’t in the system. It was resolved and I made my way back to the lab. I was sticked twice. The lab is sterile and there’s a lot of spatial distancing. Thank you, UCSF! 🙏🏼❤️

We made our way home and I jumped in the shower. I went to multiple areas in the hospital. I wanted to be sure I didn’t contaminate anything else at home for the fam.

We ordered pizza for dinner and cookies for dessert. We watched Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, Brüno, Unsolved Mysteries, and The Simpsons. Lots of tv! I played Animal Crossing a few more times.

I’m ready for bed. It was a very productive day. Proud of myself for getting all my errands done.

Hope you all had a nice Thursday! I’m looking forward to tomorrow. My Switch lite case from Japan should be arriving. Hurrah!

Good night.

Day 66.

Happy Sunday! 🧡

It was a chill day. I got a decent amount of sleep. Played Animal Crossing right away. 😁 I built this zen area on my island. I’m trying to be more creative so I’m working with what I’ve got. I’m hoping to expand some more eventually.

We had Wingstop for lunch. Everything was boneless. I enjoy the crunch from each tender. They only gave us ranch so we were without bleu cheese. 😞 Still good anyway.

I took a nice long nap. I felt really sleepy and sluggish after lunch. I waited to digest and then I napped. I woke up a half hour late. And I missed the new Simpsons episode. Maybe it’s on demand or something.

Practiced my uke. I think I can get Somewhere Over The Rainbow down by the end of the month. I’ve got two weeks!

Decided to treat myself to an Animal Crossing pouch and this plastic case. Looking forward to putting it on. I think my Switch will look great. 🙂

Well, that was my Sunday. I just danced a bit to close my exercise ring and to get my body moving. I think I’m due for a yoga session. I’m aiming for more productivity this week.

Good night and take care!

Day 47.

I really can’t believe it’s been this long. I’m still going.

I didn’t get a lot of sleep because I watched the rest of Never Have I Ever. I really like the show! It’s a great cast. Plot twist everywhere. Yeah!!!

As soon as I woke up, I played Animal Crossing. I’m close to getting all my iron nuggets. I’m feeling quite accomplished.

Had my doctor’s appointment via Zoom today. First time in a while since I put on eyeliner and sunscreen. It’s very different. I prefer in person obviously, but due to the pandemic things have changed a bit. I was really glad to talk to clinic and touch base with them. 💜

Played Animal Crossing again and then took a long nap. I needed it.

I’ve had lots of chocolate today and a bag of Chili & lime rolled tortilla chips from Trader Joe’s! I didn’t even realize I had a bag until I jogged my memory. I saved it since I wasn’t able to have chips for Lent.

Anyway, that was my day. It went really well. Hope you all had a nice Tuesday.

Good night.

Day 30.

It’s been 30 days! I started with the first day off from work which was March 13th. Time flew by. Wow.

Sleepy. So sleepy. I stayed up watching Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. I’m all caught up. I need more episodes! It doesn’t return until 4/19. 😬 That’s okay, I can wait.

I slept in. Of course! I decided to make myself a cup of coffee. I needed it. Had a quick brunch. Afterwards, I practiced my uke. Day 3! I’m learning the chromatic scale. Took me back to my piano days. The notes are clicking with me. Practicing daily is key! I also learned a few chords of Something.

Wing stop for dinner. Best wings ever!!!

I’m so tired now. Staying up has caught up to me. I need to shower and I’ll probably just keep it a mellow evening. SNL is on tonight. Their first remote episode.

My body is ready to eat chips at midnight. I kept my Lenten promise. I think I’ll go for Cheetos. 😋

Hope you all had a nice Saturday. Be safe and well!

Good night.

Day 28.

Uke practice! I didn’t fall asleep until late because I really just wanted to play already. It’s so much fun. I have learned a few chords and the finger exercises are helping me tremendously. I use the Fender Play app which is free for 3 months. And so many helpful videos on YouTube! 🙂

Cheeseburgers for lunch! Always delicious. My drink was sparkling strawberry water + black currant Ribena. Yay!!

I took a nap. And I just woke up. 😱 Might practice some more. I’m trying to learn I’m Yours, one of my favorite songs.

I’m also watching Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist at night. It’s a good show. Check it out on Hulu.

That was my day. Hope your Thursday went well!

Good night.

Day 24.

It was a rest day for me. I completed my stand goals on my watch, but I decided to sleep in. I even got to tidy up the drawers on my nightstand. Next on my list is to trash old receipts and recycle boxes. Out with the old.

I finally got to try the Popeye’s spicy chicken sandwich. It’s good. I only took two bites. My spice threshold is off because I haven’t had hot Cheetos in a while. One more week and I can finally eat it again! Within reason of course. 🙂 I’m looking forward to Easter.

Onward was so good. I laughed and I cried. The story is special and the entire cast was great! ❤️

Just a few more days and my ukulele should be here. Plus the other goodies I need at the moment.

Hoping for a restful and awesome week! Take care everyone.

Good night.
