And like that, our first working week is over. I know for many others that this was week 2 or 3 and if I’m being honest, I’m not sure I’m looking forward to the length of this. Maybe if I had been in my job longer it would make this easier, I’m trying to balance expectations of myself, my new work colleagues and all the things that I would hope to accomplish within this time. But we are doing this, and we are ok.
Ben pointed out that he isn’t looking forward to Saturday, as it will feel like the days gone by; so, as an effort to change that we are setting new routines – one for the week and one for the weekend. I’m hoping that way we can get a magic back to the weekend and some reasonable expectation for the weekday.
People’s reactions are completely understandable to this situation, but in reality all that is being asked of us is to stay at home.
No extra measures. No extra effort. No extra cost. No extra time.
So we stay in, keep ourselves occupied and out of trouble.
