I cannot believe I have been in quarantine for almost a week now. This is what my day looks like now. A new routine has consumed my everyday life.
I am not (really) a morning person. My morning usually starts at 7:30. I get up, make my bed, and go straight to the restroom to wash my face and brush teeth. Next, I prepare a cup of coffee. I like it creamy white, but I like white caramel more. Then go to the rooftop for a daily dose of fresh air, sunshine, and exercise to get my blood flowing. The sun feels comforting.
I’ve been doing this for quite a while.
I go straight to the bathroom to take a warm bath and prepare for the day ahead. I wear house clothes all the time.
I am an introvert at heart. I love being at home.
I look over and prioritize my to-do lists, respond to messages and emails, and eat breakfast, starting with a bowl of cereals, sitting cross-legged with my computer in my lap. On weekdays, I usually have cereals, oatmeals, or anything on-the-go. On the weekend, I go for corned beef, toasted bread, and eggs.
Each morning, this has been my routine.
I try not to spend much time on the internet reading or watching the news. I have a couple of breaks in between.
Cravings! What is available in my pantry? For today’s lunch, I am getting Spanish sardines, some veggies, and apple. I either take a few minutes to work on my blog or run a few errands.
I continue working on anything and everything I need to get done. I work on pending projects I have. I spend most of the time dutifully responding to my colleagues’ initial inquiries. During also this time, I aimlessly plan out the next day. In between, I have a little chit chat with my 6-months old nephew.
While I am working, I will usually snack on something like Combos or Le-mond(try this one they taste the same), butter cookies, smoothie (no ice), or coffee. I do love snacking. I also love roasted peanuts in between emails.
Off to the rooftop to get some fresh air while nibbling on Pringles(my favorite is sour cream & onion). I try to spend 10 to 15 minutes outside every afternoon for stretches then go straight to the bathroom for another warm bath. I’ve been bathing two times a day consistently.
Evenings are my favorite time of the day. I binge watch for about two hours before eating dinner. I am currently watching the last couple episodes of the Kingdom. I make more family phone calls.
I made spaghetti with lots of cheese for today’s dinner. I usually read or blog after dinner. Either of the two.
I go to sleep at about midnight. I have been trying to go to bed earlier but haven’t succeeded so far.
Geez! I always look forward to waking up and starting a new day. How’s your day so far?
