So it’s May 2020 and it has already been a hell of a year! I think most people would agree with that! This quarantine has been of the most bizarre things that I think has occurred in my lifetime. Sure there was the Spanish Flu or even Tuberculosis and things like that… but I wasn’t alive then, it didn’t affect me. So what are we going to be talking about 10 years from now? The Quarantine of 2020!
I started this particular entry of my blog because about two or three days ago, I got to thinking…. I’ve been blessed in many ways, but I have not found my forever mate yet and I tell you what, after some of the stories I’ve heard lately…. I’m I think I’m feeling pretty good about being in quarantine by myself!!!!! No disrespect to my friends and family who are in relationships or married, but right now, I gotta say I’m glad I’m not.
If dishes are left in the sink, I know who did and don’t have to go back and forth with someone to make sure they get done. Vacuuming, mopping, sweeping, cleaning the bathroom is all down to me and that makes it so much easier. I don’t have to fight with anyone on what to watch! I can watch British TV all day and no one cares! I can sit in my PJ’s while I work from home and don’t have to care how my night shirt or pajamas fit.
I can just be me!!
Now don’t get me wrong I’m not saying I want to be alone for ever… can’t say that because we don’t know what the future holds. But I will say during this time, I’m certainly OK with my singleness!
But I wonder… now is the time for people to draw closer to one another right? But in some cases it is ripping them apart. I have certainly seen more of my family than I have in the last 3 years for sure! And I’ve loved it…. every minute of it. If only my Mom wasn’t 9 and half hours away 😦
But I digress I’m not sure how many of my single or even attached friends would agree with me, but I have to be honest and say that I have enjoyed being with me. There have been days that I haven’t left the house for at least 2 or 3 days straight. The only time I’ve left home consecutively was on the weekends because of the part time gig! Other than that…. I don’t usually leave the house on consecutive days.
If you’re married or in a serious relationship, this is time for you to draw closer to each other , not farther apart. Just keep it simple. Just be kind, communicate, and respect each other! But as for me and my house… uh apartment…. Doing just fine!!
