Day 8 has come and gone and today it is two weeks since the boy got home. He has got into the swing of online schooling. He has to get up early some days because of the time difference to Manhattan.
What did you do today? I woke up feeling that sense of dread and terror from the moment I opened my eyes. Today was a two Ativan day. I spent time this morning on cutting out some masks and then after making the guys lunch I spent time setting up the sewing machine and I was pleasantly surprised that I remembered how to fill the bobbin and thread the machine first time. I decided to give the masks a try and this was the first one that I made. It is so easy to cut out the parts with the cricut. I made two today and cut out another three. They are not ideal but I think that will do in a pinch. I am making a set to take to Max’s ex pediatrician. Their office sent out an email to ask us if anyone had masks for them. This whole situation is so bizarre.
I was feeling inspired to create dinner from scratch. I made a Mac and Cheese. I turned out to be really good. I cooked the macaroni in the Instant pot on high pressure for 2 minutes and it was ready to mix into the sauce.The best part is that there is enough for dinner tomorrow. We never eat carb heavy dinners so this was a treat. Real comfort food. I had a low calorie day. It was a day where I got to 4pm and I had only consumed 400 calories. Not sure why I was not in the mood for eating today. I had a few pieces of broccoli and cauliflower for dinner and two tablespoons of the macaroni cheese. I think I ended to the day with just under 1000 calories. I have the nutritionist on Friday. She is also doing online consultations for now. The new corona world. Therapist online, PCP online, Shrink online and last but not least Nutritionist online.
Tomorrow I hopefully will have the energy to carry on with the masks. Where is this all going to end. How does this work itself out? The future just looks more and more dismal to me. Everyday more people die or more people are diagnosed. This pandemic is altering life as we know it. Look after yourselves. Wear protection and be safe. Wash your hands.
