HELLO FRIENDS

 

Actual goals coming soon~

 

Image result for wink gif

 

[edit]

 

Actual goals are here! .... Kind of~

 

This is a real loose theme around the gacha game Arknights.

TL;DR, you're allowed to do missions until your Sanity Meter (upper right) runs out; it's kinda a way of throttling player advancement so the game can be experienced over a course of time, as opposed to binging everything all at once. (I like it, it encourages me to step away and do other things~)

 

How the actual shit do I keep my sanity meter intact while the world is burning, though??

I somehow have been able to soldier on and keep positive throughout this ridiculous chaos timeline of ours.  At the time of this writing I've been temporarily laid off of my job (myself and about 1/3 of our staff, we will re-up once everything gets back to normal) and am collecting unemployment benefits, caring for my 67 year old mom who has numerous autoimmune issues, and our state is about to enter lockdown tomorrow.  IT'S INTERESTING TIMES!

 

I need to set myself some baselines:

- Don't drink like a shitbird.

- Don't eat like a shitbird.

- Try to keep moving. At-home kettlebells, yoga, take advantage of my boxing club's on-demand service.

- Make sure you shower and dress like a normal person. Try to keep a regular sleep schedule. DO NOT fall into The Pit.

- DON'T PANIC. (I've been doing pretty good at this)

- ADAPT to whatever happens. (I'm also ridiculously good at this one, thankfully.)

 

That's.... really pretty much it. I'm not here to over-extend myself, but to stay the course and do all I can for my friends and family while I have the positive headspace and bandwidth that I do.

 

❤️ Let's get through this, together.

Main post updated with More Stuff!

 

 

Today has been EXHAUSTING. I had some work at home to do (that I'm able to bank those hours for PTO), then I got the news that as of noon tomorrow my state was going into lockdown mode, so I made one hast hasty trip out to the store to stock up on some more food (I was going to go Wednesday, but may as well) and stuff for my mom. Between running around like a crazypants, fielding work issues, and talking to lots of friends, I'm right pooped.

 

I take a lot of precautions due to my mom, so my routine pretty much looks like this:

 

- Go where I need to. Sanitize the shit out of my hands every time I get back to the car.

- Once I get home I go inside and immediately grab the Lysol to sanitize the door handles.  Any groceries I bring inside are sprayed down and only handled by me as I put them away.

- Lysol all surfaces groceries were on.

- Once all this is done I immediately go take a hot shower and throw all my clothes into the laundry to wash them.

 

It's exhausting but with all her underlying conditions - Lupus, RA, kidney and respiratory stuff - I literally can't be too careful.  I'm grateful that she doesn't try to bust out into the world like other stubborn stories, and I'm grateful that while this is all very exhausting that I'm here to do it - if I wasn't here she'd have to do this all herself, or rely on friends, and it would be an absolute nightmare.

 

Here's a shitty selfie from before I ran out into the world:

 

image.png.116dd90fa9133f3a97f87c9f13bb6e5b.png

 

Took a short nap, had some dinner, and here we are.  It's also snowing out right now and we're supposed to get 5-8 inches.  O K A Y.

 

I did also manage to do a 30 minute kettlebell/yoga workout yesterday so there's that!  Smol progress!!!  I have minor DOMS today and loire they are just DOMS and not the corona you nitwit.
