As of March 16th, 2021, I have not eaten at a restaurant or gotten take-out food, if you don’t count the half a dozen bagels, I ordered eight or ten months ago in the last year.
I have not been in a vehicle such as a metro (commuter) train, a bus, a car, etc., in a year.
It’s been over a year since I had a drink of alcohol or driven a car.
I have not been farther than a mile and or half to two miles from my house this last year.
It’s been a year since I last was in the office.
Work from Home
In previous years I only worked from home a day or two a year. So at first, it was interesting to switch over to always being home. I learned I liked it, especially when I could sleep until closer when I started my workday. Now that I have spent the last year working from home, I’m enjoying it.
I wish I had paid more attention to what I did that last week and weekend before things locked down here in the United States. It would have been nice to have written it down to see what I did those last few days.
Been a More Relaxed Year(?)
Over the last year, it’s been nice not having as much to do on nights and weekends. Sometimes it’s been a pain because most of the days seemed to have blended together. It’s been like a year’s worth of Groundhogs Day in the last 365 days.
A nice thing is being able to go on purposeful walks. Be that at lunchtime and after work instead of only walking when I commuted.
Being home more has allowed me to meet and chat with neighbors. I have found some of the neighbors have tiny houses, offices, pools, etc., in their backyard. Either from walking instead of driving or because I walked down the alleys behind the houses.
Here’s to the Future
So here is to getting back to a more normal way of doing things. While still keeping a slower pace of life to spend time with each other or other things than work.
On the good side of things, I managed to lose 25 lbs. in the last year.
