I know you’re bored, going stir crazy, and your kids are driving you crazy. But for the love of God, STAY TF HOME!
Here is a to-do list that can keep you busy today and in the house:
Remember vision boards? You know before Pinterest. OG Millennial’s you know what I’m talking about. Go look around for all those magazines you’ve been hoarding to read “someday” and start cutting! Make a vision board of how you see your life after Quarantine 2020.
Have your kids make one too… Don’t have a poster-board paper? Get creative with all those Amazon boxes that have been piling up and make a vision box?
Have a picnic in the living room with your kids for lunch.
Hook up your linked in profile, we’re all going back to work when this is over, maybe this time off has given you some time to reflect where your career is, and perhaps you might be ready for a change.
Still bored? Too bad, stay home.
Have a media-free night: read a book, play a board game, put your phone away.
Take a chapter out of Marie-Kondo’s book and see if your closet sparks joy. Trust me, after this quarantine, NONE of us are going to fit into those jeans that are sitting in the back of your closet that you think you may someday be able to fit back into.? It ain’t happening; we had too many snacks while locked in the house. Does that spark joy? Nah? Throw em out sis. Better yet go make a Poshmark account and start cataloging your closet and put these clothing items up for sale. You’re out of work, get resourceful.
Turn off the news and turn up the tune. Have a dance party with your kids, go ahead, no one is watching… let loose!
If all else fails to curb your boredom, call your elderly relatives. Have a chat with them, cherish this time on the phone with them and remind yourself WHY TF YOU NEED TO STAY HOME TO PROTECT THEM.
This is the first time in history where we can make a difference by doing absolutely nothing…Don’t fuck this up!
