Bought groceries and cleaned in my apartment this morning. I was running low on food supplies as it’s been too cold, snowy, and icy to go much of anywhere for most of the last week. I’m currently taking a break from my cleaning to give an update as to what I’ve been up to for the last several days when I was home bound.
The weather started turning real cold around Tuesday of last week. It had rained much of Monday so it was in icy mess. We had a few inches of snow on Wednesday so that gave me even more incentive to stay home. It was bitterly cold Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I stayed home, read a lot, played some computer games, and at sparingly for most of last week. I walked the halls a few minutes at a time every few hours just so I wouldn’t spend all day sitting or laying down. I remained in good mental health even if I was sleeping more mainly out of boredom. I washed several loads of laundry early in the week just to break up the norm for a couple hours. For the most part I was content to wrap up in my bed and sleep in until late morning most of last week. It was too cold to go anywhere and I didn’t have much else going on.
I’ve been spending most of this day so far cleaning in my apartment and buying groceries. I still have some cleaning left but as long as I get it finished today I’m in no real hurry. I had been kind of lazy about cleaning during the recent cold snap. But now that it’s starting to warm up I see being more active and not just staying inside all the time. So far this has been one of the coldest winters I can remember in the last several years. We have missed out on most of the snow but not on the cold and wind. But we have another two and a half months of winter left. And mentally I haven’t been this stable for prolonged periods of time since my grandmother died in August 2015.
