It's no surprise that our lives have changed because of COVID-19. While we strive to keep our routines like they were prior to the pandemic, I think it's safe to say we've all had to adjust.
Previously, I attended one ballet studio class and three French classes once a week and went to the gym every day. Now, I take my ballet and French classes on Zoom in the evenings. And though the gym opened a few weeks ago, I feel safer avoiding it for the time being. To get exercise, I walk for at least an hour or more each day.
Overall, my life hasn't changed drastically. And I'm thankful that my routine is fairly normal. So, this is pretty much the general structure of my day.

Move the cat
I used to workout at the gym after lunch. Now I walk in the neighborhood.
Study French, encore Move the cat
Attend a Zoom class (French or Ballet depending on the night)
Work on my manuscripts
And finally...relax with my hubby and Ozzie
That's my typical day, packed with activities that keep me busy and productive.
I have no major complaints...yet sometimes my life feels surreal, like I'm having a bad dream. And when I wake up, everything will be back to the way it once was. I'll be back dancing in the ballet studio, back learning French in a classroom and back working out in the gym.
But this is the reality, the new normal.
It's sad and frustrating that life has changed, that life is so different. I could bitch and moan, but what good would that do? So, I will strive to be thankful, aim to be positive, do my best to be patient, and be willing to find ways to adjust.
À la prochaine!
