Over the past three weeks, we have slipped into a routine of sorts. For the first time today since the stay at home saga began, the boys said they miss school. Over the weekend, there were some rumblings – “did you see how snappy he was?”, “ We are not sick of each other yet but we are heading in that direction.” So we had to shake things a little bit this week so we could create some space in togetherness. We also resolved to hit the pause button on Netflix binging from Monday to Friday in an effort to cut our screen time and make room for some more meaningful activities.
6:00 to 7:30 am – wake up, bath, prayer, meditation, appa-amma call, dishwasher unload, prepare lunch and dinner, news catch up on podcast
7:30 to 8:30 am – catching up with work emails, daily check in call with the team
8:30 to 9:00 am – check in with kids, breakfast time.
9:00 to 12:00 pm – work
12:00 to 12:15 pm – catch up with kids while having lunch
12:15 to 12:45 pm – go out for a jog
12:45 pm – resume work
3:00 pm – tea and snack break
5:45 pm – wind up work
6:00 pm – dinner preparation, touch point with friends here and there, news catch up on podcast
7:00 pm – kids activities via zoom/family time – carom/TV
8:00 pm – catch up – work emails, personal emails, social media
10ish pm – hit the sack
Wash. Rinse. Repeat. If monotony and lack of social life are our biggest complaints, we should consider ourselves blessed.
Stay safe, stay healthy, stay home.
