#WeekendCoffeeShare – What Day Is It?

Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!

Grab a cup of coffee and share with us!  What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans?  Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?

Join us for some coffee time!

Time is all relative, I know a lot of people have been challenged in remember what day it is – the days just run into one another when you don’t have clear demarcations, such leaving the house to go to work, appointments or schedules, things like that.

I have a “schedule” for myself, but the primary purpose of it is to help me remember which day it is. In theory it also helps me make sure I do some of the things I’m supposed to be doing each day – between jobs and homework I’m also trying to make sure I have social interactions, drink water, move some, and create art (weaving and crocheting being my primary forms of art). When I do one of those things I move a card from it’s pocket to the “Done” pocket. In some ways it reminds me of those pocket calendars from preschool.

I am starting to get into the flow of things, making progress on a couple of different projects that need to be completed. But then there are passing moments when it hits me how strange this all is. I’ve been trying to let those moments happen, sit with them and recognize the emotions I may be feeling in the moment. I had started a document on my computer to start writing about this, the idea being that I could keep something of a journal about this historic moment, but every time I sit down to write about it the words won’t come – so I am just leaving the shortcut on my desktop for now.

What are you doing to help give your days distinction? Or, are you doing anything?

  1. My wife hasn’t left our house in 17 days…I have left twice to go to the store. She is working harder than ever from home, but the days go by with nothing to give us the context to know which day it is!

  2. I use a calendar to schedule a few activities each day, just to give some structure and purpose to the day. I alternate my exercises so they act as reminders (e.g. Workouts on Mon, Wed, Fri and yoga on Tues, Thu, and Sat.). These are unsettling times. Take care Alli.

  3. Hi Alli. Good question! I’ve worked from home since 2006 so I did not expect the whole SIP mode of living to have much impact, but it did. My family, who used to all run off in their various directions of school and work are now almost all tied down to home or very limited wandering and I’m restricted to almost no short forays out for short errands or whatnot.

  4. I did not expect to miss any of my short breaks from being home – but I do – much more than I expected. We have a large backyard, through which I can wander some and this has become really valuable to me. So, what am I doing about it? Not much really. My calendar has become much more important because only it gives meaning to my work days and having only two weekend days to “not work”, they tend to take care of themselves. So I attend better to that calendar to make sure I don’t get lost in the work week. but limiting my out of home experience of life to that which I can reach via video web conferences is getting really old already.

    Sigh

    Thanks again and again for hosting our coffee shares. I’ve come to really really like and even depend on them..

  5. I’m still very much working in my town, I work for a major hardware store which apparently classifies me as an “essential employee,” I count the weekdays down until I’m off again. 😅 I’m thankful my significant other has been so great about doing all of the grocery shopping, being away from my home makes me so anxious. I really like the idea of the pocket organizer though, I should try one, maybe keeping busy outside of work would help ease my anxiety a little. I hope you have a great rest of your weekend!
