It’s now been a month since my family and I began self-isolating at home.
Here at the Blanc house things have somewhat begun to settle into a new normal. Well, as normal as things can be considering the circumstances.
This past week, Kansas City had a few beautiful and warm days that allowed us to eat our meals in the backyard, do some work outside, and ride bikes around the neighborhood.
Over the past month, here are few of the rituals and tiny moments that are helping me to get through this:
- Building furniture
- Taking walks around the neighborhood with my wife in the evenings
- Clearing, cleaning, simplifying, and redesigning my workspace
- Coffee in the afternoon
- Board games with my kids (Settlers and Skip-Bo are the current favorites)
- Daily exercise
- Journaling in Day One
- Spontaneous phone calls with friends
