News at Home: COVID Quarantine Week 25
I feel like last Sunday was weeks ago, but turns out I’ve only lived a week since then :P. This was another very busy week, where I worked overtime pretty much every day.
Monday was the staff lunch I mentioned struggling to order last week. It went perfectly – 15 meals were delivered to 15 different addresses between 11:30 – 11:45 exactly as ordered. So success! We had a 2 hour meeting to go with it and it was both fun and exhausting. Directly following that I had another meeting, so by the end of the work day, I had virtual meeting overload.
Tuesday and Wednesday were very busy days, just because I had a lot of work to do, but nothing crazy. Thursday I had to GO TO work for the first time since March. And since I’m in a new job since then, this was my first time to this office and actually meeting a couple of my coworkers. I work at a hospital and I have to say, going in there is probably the safest I’ve felt going to a public place. Everything is strictly marked for keeping 6 ft distance. When you enter the building they take your temperature and ask a series of health questions.Then, because I was going to be possibly near clinical areas, they had me trade out my cloth mask for a better one and gave me a face shield (which is mine to keep).
Kiko took of work Thursday to watch Dante while I went to the hospital, so he decided to take Friday too. That made Friday a little bit easier, since he was home to help with Dante. Then Saturday I took Dante for a play date with our friends that we’ve gotten together with a couple other times. She teaches kindergarten and will have a class full of kids starting Tuesday, so we felt this was our last chance for a while. We had a little celebration for Dante’s 1st birthday (which is less than 2 weeks away!!) and he had his first ever cake. He liked it (of course lol)! We had a lot of fun and I really enjoyed watching Dante play with other kids. I hate that COVID has robbed him of those interactions, but I’m glad he’s had a few opportunities. It was a nice day.
I have still kept up with blogging this week, so yay! I don’t have much to report, except that our challenges have kicked off for September 🙂
It’s late, so I’m being brief. Hope y’all have a great week!
