I had a second episode of The Stir Crazy Files all lined up and ready to go and then something came along to negate the need for it.
Yesterday my love came up with a plan to take a tiny little bite out of the cabin fever and also fight against the lack of exercise we are bound to suffer from during our social distancing.
She asked me if I wanted to take a walk around the block. I said sure and off we went. It only took about 15 minutes or so and it just felt great. I mean, the exercise was just exercise, you know? But actually spending a few minutes outside of the confines of our house just really hit the spot.
Normally I would be 100% in favor of not going outside for any reason, but now that The Man is telling us to stay in it just felt so good breathe fresh air. We both felt invigorated and we agreed we’d do the same thing every lunch time until The Man sets us free. Weather permitting, of course.
Can you see where this is going now?
When we woke up this morning it was pouring rain. When we started working it was pouring rain. When I looked outside after my morning meeting it was pouring rain.
When 1:00 came I didn’t even bother looking outside, I just went to the kitchen and made myself a sandwich.
Then… a minor miracle.
Jen had a meeting end around 1:00. As I was sitting down to eat my sandwich she asked if I wanted to go for a walk. But… but.. I thought. Then I looked outside and wonder of wonders the rain had stopped! It was still cold as ass, but at least it wasn’t raining! We went outside and went for a walk. Oh happiness!
So instead of writing a post about feeling stir crazy again, I get to write a post about not feeling stir crazy again.
Now go and wash your damn hands.
