I’d like to preface this post with two things. First being that this is a reflection of my own personal experience as a twenty-something living in Idaho – one of the last states to get their first confirmed case of COVID-19. Secondly, please listen to the national, state, and local guidelines that are being communicated in your area.

This morning I got a notification that an event we were planning to attend in England in May had been canceled – making me feel even more uneasy about our ability to take our two-week honeymoon to London. Right now we’re still in a “wait and see” period and we’ll reevaluate our options as we get closer to May.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! I took an Ancestry DNA test last year and found out I’m about a quarter Irish/Scottish which is pretty cool and gives me a viable reason to participate in the festivities; but alas, this year we’re stuck inside.
Day two of working from home started off with a new addition to our office (my husband) – we both cozied up to our desks ready to tackle a day of work.
Sean was thoroughly enjoying setting up his new conference call system… Hawaiian shirt and all! ha!
As the workday came to a close I followed my habitual routine of working out – when I opened the SWEAT app I was happy to see they had updated it to include 12 additional weeks to the program I’m currently on and a whole new at-home program that I was hoping would be available soon!!
This afternoon was a little different in that I didn’t get to volunteer like I normally do. Last night I got the email that the after-school program I was volunteering for was canceled for the remainder of the school year. I was loving being able to give back to my community and hope to volunteer again in the fall.
Tonight’s activities include:
- Writing a blog post for Bloom + Amplify
- Writing this blog post
- Reading a book
- Folding laundry
- and Watching Netflix
At the time of writing this post, Idaho has 9 confirmed cases of Coronavirus. Our first was confirmed on Friday and then five total on Saturday. It’ll be interesting to see how this number changes for the next few days.
