What Day is it Anyway? #WDIIA ~ 3/19/20

Ping back to a way to stay connected.

J-Dub’s log, star date March 19, 2020 in the year of our lord. Day 4 of self imposed Shelter in Place.  I am only going to the grocery store as miraculously my psychological physical ailments have all but disappeared.  I am walking daily and obsessively.  I am going to bed at the same time and getting up at the same time.  I am changing from my pajamas to street clothes.  Not at this moment obviously but each morning.

Street clothes … anyone else use that term?

My mom was very strict about no street clothes on your bed.  Or should I say don’t get on your bed in street clothes?  Yep that is what I should say.  Funny what one remembers.

I miss my mommy and daddy too for that matter.  I am glad they are not here for this though.  Wah, wah that was sad.  I don’t want to be sad.  Enough!  I am going for a walk!!

Walk it off, never a truer statement.

  1. So we’ve been retired for about five years now. I refuse to wear my PJs even to the door to let the dog out first thing in the morning. I refuse to wear my day clothes to bed. If that happens I know I am sick. And if others are going to see me, I wear street clothes, because, well, we have our standards, don’t we? Out here in the country, pop. 1k, some folks wear whatever. I don’t care. I just don’t feel comfortable seeing people in my home clothes. They aren’t obscene, or too ratty. That’s a weird one that many of us have been taught, huh?

    As for the panic, it seems a roller coaster of emotions. We don’t have a lot of differences in our day here. We’ve always been good about washing hands etc. The touching of faces is a hard one, especially during allergy season. But knowing the reason we needed to stay home made the staying home we normally do cabin fever inducing. Until just a day or two ago we were snowed in-ish. Too cold to enjoy outside. There is still snow on the northern exposures. So that helped ease us into the shelter in place.

    Hang in there!

    1. I must say I’ve been tempted to go out in pajamas as that’s seems to be the new norm. I just can’t do it. And right now for me changing clothes is a way to signify different parts of the day. Staying is pajamas to wallow in pity all day would be so easy. I have to resist or I’ll never get out of bed.

      We will all get through this though. My tribe is blessed. Others are fairing far worse and I remember for perspective. I’m second guessing everything I write so as not to offend or be insensitive.

      Wishing you a peaceful Sunday.


      1. That is exactly my view of PJs in public. It is an attempt to wallow and it is a way to move through the day by changing through the day. Yes, we are blesses, my tribe, etc. And perspective helps though it may be a bumpy ride. I do understand watching the words, but sometimes your words may bring someone up with the knowledge they are not alone. I hope you had a peaceful Sunday. May Monday be a blessing.

  2. Walking helps! Glad to hear that you’re feeling better during this weird and trying time. Life is stressful, eh? Hopefully after this maybe it will be less so as some people learn that all that running around and stressing out wasn’t worth it. And we called ours play clothes as opposed to school clothes (or church clothes). Now, I call them comfy clothes and I spend a lot of time in them. A LOT.
