1. Yesterday marked one month since we’ve gone anywhere aside from driving in the car. I’m afraid I won’t know how to leave the house after this!
2. Hot cheetos deviled eggs. Oh mylanta.
3. Guys, while I don’t have a ton of free time in quarantine, in the moments I do have, my boredom is so high that I’ve almost resorted to doing Facebook quizzes. Please come rescue me.
4. 10 ways to get yourself out of a funk. I’ve been doing many of these.
5. The entertainment of the last few days is that we have a huuuuge fly in our house and can’t manage to get rid of it. Emilia runs around screaming “it’s alive” and every 20 minutes Max yells “OH NO!” which makes me jump and think something is actually wrong. It’s tons of fun.
6. TV things! So much. We finished Ozark. OH MY GOSH, it was unreal. So good. Grey’s last week was fine and weird at times. I started Little Fires Everywhere last night and love it!
7. I AM CRYING. This video is unreal if you love Hamilton. Please watch right now. It gets good in the middle, trust me. I’ve watched a hundred times.
8. This idea of career journaling is something interesting.
9. The social distancing has screwed with my brain so much that as I’m reading books, all I’m thinking is “wait, you can’t walk outside in NYC right now? Wait, you can’t all be in the room together!” I wish I was joking.
10. Have you tried the whipped dalgona coffee yet? I tried it and shared on instagram and was not impressed. It was weird.
11. This is a reminder of something lost long ago. I’ve thought about this many times over the last month, even before reading.

All good points; but #11 is my favorite. Thank you for sharing this article!
#9 Speaks to me. Every time I am watching a show, I think, yeah but there is too many people in that room at once! Glad I am not the only one thinking that, even in fictional shows/books. My stepdaughter is going to try making the whipped coffee this week, She is a coffee snob, so i don’t know how it’ll hold up.
#9. All. The. Time.
I bought an adult activity book off Amazon. Think word searches, crosswords and Soduku…I am officially 95 years old.
My brain is doing the same thing as far as the social distancing guidelines go, too. It’s making me so sad!
I never knew watching YouTube was so cool! ( Hamilton) That was fun, thanks!
I’m doing the same thing when I read books! I’m shocked when the characters go somewhere or interact with people outside of their house like they’re breaking the rules haha.
I do wonder how long after this we’ll see a group of people, and instinctively start counting how many people are gathered together.
We’ve been doing that for weeks now. If we were riding bikes at the park and saw a few people, we’d start counting to make sure they were under 10. That’s going to be a tough new habit to break!
Yes on #9! I catch myself being worried for the citizens of Arendelle all the time (I know…).
It’ll be like when my super conservative CPA firm started letting women wear sleeveless shirts how it felt so naughty for a really long time.
We’re 4 episodes in on Ozark! I normally can’t stand the F word in shows or movies but I love it when Ruth uses it (like in every single sentence). What’s wrong with me?
I watched an episode of Veep last night and one of the aides was having a MEETING with another Washington person who was sick and coughing across the desk from her! She had her hands on the desk, then picked up her phone, and walked him out, side-by-side. Have we all been ruined forever?? I also loved #11. What a thoughtful article!
Yup….my husband and I started calling out people being too close or shaking hands when we’re watching tv. Haha. So crazy how our mindset has changed so quickly! So funny about your fly! Hopefully you can finally get rid of it soon!
Omg! I was watching watching an old episode of Gilmore Girls, and my instinct was to say / think, “well, you can’t have festivals like that right now… they don’t know how lucky they are!” 🤦♀️🤦♀️ I’m obviously channeling my grandpa. I’m going to try the whipped coffee with instant espresso because that’s all I have. We shall see!
Omg excites you started Little Fires, my husband and I are HOOKED. Each episode gets better and better.
Also, you’ve convinced me I need to start Ozarks next! I’ve been following you for YEARS (probably around 10) and from that I know we have very similar taste in shows so you saying this has pushed me to that decision finally. Lol
I like the Dalgona coffee but I added an espresso shot over my milk, over ice first, then added whip. Also I’ve noticed soo many people not whipping long enough! It needs to be THICK! But I also love strong coffee so maybe that matters. Lol
I was watching a TV show the other day and went “you just got within 6’, you can’t do that!” Then realized that… that wasn’t always a thing.
These collage making kits on Etsy are a fun, relaxing way to combat boredom! They have adult and kid focused kits. And some beautiful DIY Mother’s Day cards!
Thanks for the wonderful posts, love your recipes and all that you share!
Ummmm…. thank you for everything in the is Post! LOVED those articles and that John Krasinski video Hope you guys are okay after that storm last night. It hit the South Hills hard!
I’ve been journaling off and on since I was in high school (not for my career, but just to journal). It has been so fun to look back at what I was doing and how I was thinking. For the past three years I’ve been able to journal every day. It’s so true that you forget all of the little things. I’m glad that I’m journaling during this crazy time in the world, so that I can look back on it.
Bahaha! Those Facebook quizzes! I have this REALLY weird aunt, like total bizzaro space cadet, and literally the only thing she does on Facebook is those personality quizzes. “Ellen has the biggest heart in all the land. She will be a loyal friend and the strongest person in a crisis who has ever existed. Ellen is an angel on Earth.” Then she’ll comment, “It’s true! This describes me exactly!” Rich comedic material there. My sisters and I die every time she does one.
Jessica, yes to the article about being freed from the demands of life and being able to breathe a little for a while. When the author was writing about being able to hear a small voice (your innermost thoughts), it reminded me of the way God speaks to us. We have to be quiet, still and listen for Him. He doesn’t demand to be part of our lives—He offers us a chance to know Him through His Word, the Bible.
As I’ve contemplated this idea, I find myself praying that this down time (for those of us at home) will allow us room to think and wonder. And perhaps, we will be better for it when this is over.
the atlantic article was very interesting. i feel like its something i need to come back to a few times during all of this. i have this sense that i cannot wait to get back to normal, but then, will normal be the same ?
one thing i am struggling with is i am still working while others are on furlough so i feel this sense of needing to prove myself, etc and work hard, but then at the same time am exhausted and distracted. its such a strange combination. i am really hoping i get some more energy soon somehow ???
Lightman also wrote Einstein’s Dreams – a fantastic short book. Highly recommend. If you liked his essay, you’ll love his ingenious book. It’s in my top 10.
Just popping over to say thanks – I needed that :)
Hey I made your house sauce and quick pickles this week – absolutely amazing!! Thanks for sharing xx

#10 Ugh thank you! I was excited to try it, but I was left feeling so disappointed. Got the overly jittery feeling of too much caffeine with none of the enjoyment of sipping coffee. Also not that easy to drink? I tried it cold and most of it was just all over the ice after I finished the milk, anyway. I originally thought maybe I did something wrong because like you, I was not impressed at all. Bummer.
Just thought I would let you know that the link for #7 takes you to a SGN video, not a video about Hamilton.
hi jennifer! the SGN video is about hamilton!
