    I started to work out (almost) every day and I write down things I'm grateful for or made me happy.

    Luckily it wasn't that bad -I get a workout from the hands and knees floor scrubbing! Listen to podcasts/radio while I do it so it's not bad.

    We treated the first few weeks like it was an on-going party.

    By the end of the third week, our waistlines had expanded alarmingly and we knew we had to clean up our acts.

    I began a strict diet during week 4, and to my surprise my boyfriend followed suit.

    We've been sticking to our diets successfully for the last 3 weeks and plan to stay the course until a scheduled cheat day on Memorial Day weekend.

    It's really a great time to diet because the restrictions make it easy.

    Our days have settled into a loose pattern.

    He wakes up early, 4 AM or 5 AM and practices guitar for a couple hours.

    I've been waking up between 6:30 AM and 8 AM.

    Since we are both laid off, our days are mainly delimited by our mealtimes LOL.

    I eat within a half hour of waking and he eats around the same time so that there isn't a hangry confrontation.

    Then my mealtimes are basically 9:30 AM, 11:30 AM, 2:00 PM, 4:30 PM, and 7:00 PM.

    We eat our 11:30 and 4:30 PM meals together and watch Dogfights. I loved this program when it was on the History Channel and I figured my boyfriend would really dig it.

    I was right. He loves it.

    We try to get out for a 2-mile walk in the afternoon, but lately we've been pretty bad about it. It's probably the dieting.

    Aside from these meal times and the walk, we basically entertain ourselves during the daytime hours.

    He is still on call for work, even though he is technically laid off.

    So, he answers phone calls throughout the day and plays video games in between any assignments that come up.

    Sometimes he takes a nap in the middle of the day.

    I don't know what the hell I do all day LOL.

    Well, last week I actually worked for a portion of it, but before that.... jeez... I sure can waste time!

    After our 4:30 PM meal, we do our own thing again until around 6:00 PM. Then we play Diablo III for about an hour. It's the only video game time I permit for myself.

    Then we have a snack and watch a movie or two.

    Then, it's bedtime.

    Anyone feeling this too?💻📳

    "'Zoom fatigue' — a form of exhaustion from excessive video chatting — has swept the world as the technology has quickly gained widespread adoption for work, education and personal connection during the pandemic. Social scientists tell The Wall Street Journal that a number of factors are at play as the format disrupts "normal, instinctual" forms of human communication. Among the sources of stress: constantly seeing an image of yourself, an inability to read body language, a lack of real-time feedback and seeing giant faces on the screen."

    Luckily my crochet group only zooms once every two weeks.

    I have refused to Zoom. A few video calls have crept through. Didn't like them much either.

    Inhuman and definitely not instinctual.

    I had a total of 3 weeks of virtual training. I didn't mind much because it eliminated the need for me to go into work, which is not a safe place currently.

    Too bad I can't continue to work from home. I wish I could.
