With most of us hanging close to home, both adults and kids may find themselves bored. For us introverts, not so much. I have a list of things I’ve been meaning to get to, and now looks like the perfect time.
Read books and more books (seriously, you had to see this one coming). Maybe I can finally make a serious dent in the TBR pile. Less errands to run = more time to curl up with good reads.
Clear out the Netflix list. I’ve added several things I want to watch (still haven’t gotten to Witcher) but haven’t had time to get to. I just noticed they added a second season of Altered Carbon, and season 3 of Ozark drops March 27th. With Disney+, I’m still trying to watch The Mandalorian – technical difficulties have prevented my viewing so far. ESPN+ is no problem – hubby and I are making our way through Peyton’s Places and loving it.
Our garage and storage area could use a good cleaning out. We’re not hoarders by any means, but the boys have stashed sports equipment and art supplies they no longer need/use in the garage, college moves have resulted in unused/unwanted furniture, and hubby could probably open a golf store with what he has on the shelves. Old Christmas decorations and some toys could be removed from the storage area. Last time I was up there, I discovered the youngest son had added several boxes without telling us. We just thought he finally cleaned out his bedroom. Should have known better.
Don’t even get me started on the yard. I bought weed killer a couple weeks ago, but we’ve had so much rain I haven’t been able to spray. We also lost several bushes over the winter that need to be dug up, and others need to be trimmed.
The list goes on, but I won’t bore you with everything.
Last week before everyone hunkered down, the oldest son and I saw Ben Affleck’s new movie, The Way Back. Affleck turned in a fantastic performance, and the story contained both comedic moments with the high school boys he coached and heartfelt situations involving his struggle with alcohol addiction and grief over the loss of a child. We’d both recommend it.
Have a great week and wash those hands!
