Keeping Busy on Coronavirus Time

It knew that yesterday was Tuesday, but I forgot. I lost track of time. Everything had devolved into projects that had no time limits.

I was busy and I was at times frustrated.

The obligatory things were accomplished--the newly plastered pool was brushed three times, the dog was walked, the garbage made it to the street, and the lawn was mowed for the third time this Spring. 

I attempted to do a brake job on my truck, but was thwarted due to misplaced tools. I wound up putting the tire back on the truck and going to Lowe's for the tools that I needed. I am doing an $850 brake job for $150 in parts that arrived in a next day order and now $50 in new tools. I think that is a good trade off.

But in doing the brake job and going to Lowe's, I lost track of time! I was supposed to have a 5PM Zoom meeting for Happy Hour--but did not get on until 5:30. Weird! I never miss Happy Hour!

It is all part of the new normal. Getting things done and not worrying about the time of day. I am amazed how quickly a day can escape.
