I’m not always the greatest about turning over my calendar each month.
If I happen to notice and think of it, I’ll do it, but otherwise, it may be a hours or even a day or two before I do it.
But this month, I flipped that sucker right after my morning orange juice, even before I ate.
It was nothing against Zack Britton, the previous photo on my Yankee calendar, or any great love for Chad Green in April, but I, like I’m guessing most of the rest of us, wanted to banish all signs of March as soon as humanly possible.
Because let’s face it, March was a long forever.
Here’s hoping things get at least a little better before Miguel Andujar shows up on my kitchen wall.
STUFF I WROTE THIS WEEK
A good day to stay inside — Sometimes, it’s just better to let the world do its thing without you.
A night out, at home — Replicating one of our favorite things to do (as best as we could), when we couldn’t actually go out and do it.
The little things you notice — It’s not everyone, but there are signs people are starting to figure out what to do.
THIS WEEK’S BLAST FROM THE PAST
A year ago, I was in New York — Looking back at the posts from a short trip that was full of memories.
STUFF I READ THIS WEEK
Rename The Rooms Of Your House To Fight Cabin Fever (The Return of the Modern Philosopher) — Austin has been doing a lot of good stuff lately, but I chose this one because it was so clever.
Some Words in the Madness (alwayscoffee) — Not just words, great words.
Pushing through and building each other up (Smelly Socks and Garden Peas) — Something all of us can make sure to do.
March: Thoughts From An Inside-Out Month (On The Fly) — “I’m writing this at 10 p.m. on a Thursday night having just eaten 3 packets of crisps with a glass of wine.
Because time doesn’t exist anymore, and clearly, neither do social norms.” — Yeah, pretty much.
Isolating in nature (Sunshine With Savannah) — We were inside for two days because of rain, and it felt really good to get out, so I definitely get what Savannah’s saying.
A New Normal (Rosie Culture) — How are you dealing with it?
Are You a Good Person, or Just Lazy? (The Sad Place) — I think I’m a good person, but this is a really interesting question.
Flying During The COVID-19 Pandemic (Dark Blue Journal) — Even if flying is easier now, on account of no one being around, it must still be eerie.
Everyday Kindness (My Musings & Me) — Sometimes, it’s the little things.
This Stinks (The Captain’s Speech) — Paul knows the value of letting off some steam once in a while.
I Put the ‘Nessie’ in Essential (BEXoxoBlog) — Get her a cape.
Life is like a boomerang (Millennial Life Crisis) — Vee’s uncle was quite a guy.
TWEETS I LIKED
What made this work is that there was an audience-participation segment earlier in the show, so it just seemed like she was another person plucked out of the crowd.
OK, who knows it?
Everything shut down right around the time I would have thought about a haircut, so yeah, my hair is pretty much out of control.
I actually managed to wear jeans three times this week.
I can’t get behind the “happy about the 2013 World Series” part, but the role that sports plays in your life? Absolutely.
Speaking of which … a highlight of my junior year of high school.
I remember when this was a big deal during the Super Bowl.
It’s important to start them young.
No argument here.
