A Relatively Ordinary Life

Perspectives on things seen, heard, and experienced

I’ve worked from home for years now. While I sometimes miss the hustle and bustle of an office, I don’t really miss it deep down. I don’t mind being in my home office and working with clients virtually.

I have a dog. I don’t have kids so I’m not teaching anyone during this quarantine but my pup does want attention, and walks, and food. We make it work. She doesn’t get why she can’t play with her canine and human friends so it’s a struggle to keep that social distance.

I’m also not an extravert. I am an introvert. I do well with quiet and my own time. But my dog is an extravert. So I spend much of our outdoor time, shouting across the street at neighbors and fellow dog parents.

But beyond that, it’s really been okay being at home. What gets me is the concept that I can’t just go out when I want to. I can’t make a quick dash to the store or to pick up food. It’s the fact that someone is telling me NO, which is playing games with my head.

It’s  been awhile since I posted on this blog. Since we’re all under stay at home orders, what better time for me to revive the content here with all of my observations or things that happen during quarantine? So here we go.


Deodorant … I know that it seems pretty simple or that it should be second nature for all of us but I did see on social media someone asking if it was necessary if they were quarantined alone.

Take it from someone who’s worked from home for years and just recently got a dog. It’s just the two of us. She prefers when I smell nice. I prefer when I feel good. Yes, getting out of bed, getting dressed and putting on deodorant makes me feel good.

Now don’t get me wrong, I am all for pajama days. Every once in a while .. not every day.

Anyone disagree?
