I totally thought it was Monday all day today but to be honest since the baby is here I have never been more tired than today. Maybe the tirednes adds up a little more every day and on some days I don´t get to nap so that makes it even worse.
Since the restaurants and all the other places for amusement are still closed due to the stupid Coronavirus and not going to open in the foreseable future I put together some ideas for your spouse and you if you still don´t want to dispense you weekly date night. Sure you are spending all day everyday together but is it really quality time you need or are you just co-existing at home.
Date Night Ideas for #socialdistancing Times
#1 // Cook together – not only is it super fun, it also tastes way better if you have a meal made from scratch together
#2 // Get a glass of wine and spend the evening on the patio together (no phones etc., if you are lucky and have a patio or balcony
#3 // Get some take-out and eat it at a festive set table (immediately creates a special atmosphere even if it just Chinese take-out from around the corner)
#4 // Watch a movie together in Cinema Atmosphere (with Disney+, Netflix and everything else you can pick a nice movie you both would enjoy to watch, make some popcorn or other Cinema related snacks)
#5 // Play boardgames together (this isn´t probably for anyone as not everyone likes to play in general but if you are a fan I think this would be a nice change)
#6 // If you have a garden gather all things for a picnic and have dinner under the stars
Make sure to dress up and create special memories for your at home quarantine dates as this is hopefully a once in a lifetime thing we will never forget.
it is a holiday over here in Germany and boy it has been the most boring day ever. In normal times I would love to have a holiday but since we are staying home due to the Coronavirus every day is the same and today had been especially bad. It is rainy and cold outside and so we couldn´t do anything outside although I got a lot of shots done I still feel blah. But I guess some days are rather fun than others.
So let´s talk about this whole #socialdistancing thing. We are home all the time and there are so many things we can get accomplished, we never had any time before and that is great. Also being around the people you love all the time is a huge blessing (at least for us over here) but being together all the time can be hard on some couples too so you have to find some time for yourself.
Everyone needs some downtime alone even if it is just a short shower but having some time to yourself helps to keep your mood in a good place.
It really depends on what your preferences are. Having a glass of wine while reading your favorite magazine marks an hour well used. Or if you like organizing and it makes you feel good go and clean out a closet/drawer etc. I personally enjoy that a lot and I feel much more accomplished and happier after.
Times are hard at the moment with all the restrictians and lockdowns but if you want to stay happy while you have to stay at home its the little things that make your day.
