Empty Calendars

I believe your calendar must look at lot like mine now. Not exactly blank, but pretty empty. Things that use to give my life structure have been canceled or postponed or take place in significantly different ways.

My daughter banned me from her Pilates studio. I’m doing a mat class on my own every other day. I used to go twice a week to work with a trainer. I’m pretty certain, I’m not getting as much of a workout on my own as with a trainer. 😊 She’s done a uTube video and I use it sometimes, which helps.

Schools are closed, so I no longer pick up a granddaughter to either hang out or take to her dance class. ☹

My beauty shop is closed. My next appointment was for today, April 2. I’ve promised my beautician not to cut my hair myself and think I can keep that promise. Color may become more problematical. That could become pretty scary. And you know how emotionally down you can get if your hair doesn’t look like you think it should. We’ll see how this works out.

IMG_4734 There’s a better pic of this. It popped up on FB just the other day, but I cannot retrieve it. Judi Perrotti was doing a quick styling before a book signing in her salon several years ago. 

Church only meets on-line now for Sunday Services on Facebook and Zoom. Thank you, God, for technology! What a blessing that has become. So, no in person committee meetings, around which my life has always revolved. Because this shutdown looks to go on for the foreseeable future, some of my groups are looking at using Zoom for meetings. First one is today. Will let you know how it goes.

Church front Feb 2 Church is complete now and stuff got moved in, but not unpacked.

TCU Silver Frogs classes canceled. Though they are now asking if folks want to teach a class on-line. Not sure I’m up for that. Need to get better with the technology before trying. And really need to finish TAINTED.

Remaining on the calendar is this weekly blog/newsletter, the monthly Sisterhood of Suspense blog, and Sunday morning service at 10 am. Also checking in daily with my Noom App and recording things there. My Pilates every other day but I’ve not put that on the calendar. Maybe I should. It would help fill up the blank space.

For instance, I’m going to actually put on the calendar these things: my at home Pilates mat class, meditating, working on Book 8, neighborhood walks-as opposed to walking at the Mall. I did have going through my closet to cull some of the larger size clothes hanging there on the list.  I actually got this done already. Feeling proud.

And last but not least, going through the file cabinets and drawers to get rid of stuff I don’t need there. (I do hate to do this task. I mean I cleaned out my closet before doing the files!) If I get through with those, there are computer files. And oh, yeah, going through the pictures I’ve been meaning to send to Legacy Box dot com to get pics digitized. Have you done that? How did it work? How are you filling the time? What’s on your calendar? Bob is working from home. Certainly, a new way to do life. But I am blessed to live on a lake with great views, and so far we are well as are our kids & grands. Be safe and stay strong. We will get through this.

Love to hear from you. More than I even usually do. 😊
