Life in the Time of Coronavirus Thursday April 9, 2020

I have no energy. I sleep 9 hours and wake up exhausted. I get out of bed with difficulty, and then just want to get right back in. I cook, I clean up, I do laundry, I try to work. My brain cannot focus on any one thing. I knit a row, I read a paragraph. I write a sentence. I have a constant headache.

Which sneakers should I wear today, the black ones or the bright ones? Well, which quarter zip am I wearing? Or even more importantly which leggings are clean? That’ll make those other decisions easy for me.

Which alcohol are we running out of today? I thought a Dark and Stormy would be perfect for the Sailing Committee Zoom meeting. But the Gosling’s is out, and do not even get me started on the travesty that is Reed’s ginger beer. I went with Tito’s. Speaking of which…

Unofficial sponsors of the Byrne Family Quarantine (Updated list):

  • Tito’s Vodka
  • Dr. McGillicuddy’s Mentholmint
  • Cheez It Extra Toasty
  • Kinder Happy Hippos
  • Mini Chocolate Covered Oreos

I miss baseball.

Girls’ Inc. is bringing the Teen Leadership Academy to Zoom. I am so excited. Has anyone used any good “ice breakers” in a virtual meeting? Please share!
