What Day Is It? #sol20

I’ve been struggling to differentiate one day from another, particularly since the start of the pandemic. I consistently lose track of the day and have joked that I need to put a whiteboard up here at home with the date just like I did at school.

Today, I worked on assignments for an online class and spent some time relaxing with a book. The day was quiet, yet pleasant. I had dinner with my family. After dinner, I retreated to my recliner in the den, prepared to continue reading. I don’t know what made me think of the day of the week, but something was said about Tuesday and everything suddenly clicked. I shot up out of my chair and said, “It’s Tuesday! I have to blog!” It had not occurred to me that today was Tuesday. I had gone all day without even thinking about the day of the week. Maybe that whiteboard is a good idea! But, who is going to change the date every day? Someone else would have to be in charge of it!

    This is so funny, Jennifer. I think a lot of us are having this problem. I actually write the next day’s day and date on the refrigerator every night as if I am teaching first grade: “Today is Tuesday, July 14, 2020.” Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    LOL! This happens to me. It was not too crucial when nothing was going on, but as things slowly open back up, I’ve had to come up with a plan. I keep a calendar next to my E-Z chair. It’s small, one of those that comes with your previous or future contribution to some cause or another. I write down things like Slice of Life, and other “must-dos. I also cross out the day every evening. In this way I can comfortably relax into watercolor or some other enjoyable task if I don’t have something pressing to do. Glad you did not miss the Slice of Life post!
