Alexa play “ Move” by Ludacris. So we have been quarantined a little over a month now. My husband and I both work in the school system so we have been at home since the beginning with our 4-year-old. We go out once a week for groceries and I have been ordering other things online. I have started to see a lot of post about wishing for a quarantine bae, heyyyyyyyy !! Are you sure sis? Are you really sure that’s what you want? I’m asking because I care about you? Bro, are you sure you want that type of commitment?
I mentioned that we have been quarantined for over a month right? So let’s look at what happens when a married couple is quarantined 24 hours a day. Let me give a disclaimer, my husband is younger than I am, he is a Pisces and I am a Gemini, and we have been married for 10 years. My Gemini side makes me appear younger sometimes because he is a homebody and I need 4th of July consistency constantly. So over the last couple of weeks he has been kind of laid back. We both have our work from home hours that we have been managing, but week 3, week 3 was a doozy. By week 3 we were both suffering from lack of a sleep pattern, not just for us but also for our 4-year-old. I remember on Wednesday of week 3, I woke up mad. Guys, when I opened my eyes and got out of bed I was already mad. Those of you that know me also know that I am rarely not smiling. This particular morning, I could feel the frown lines in my forehead. I asked my husband 100 different questions within a 15-minute increment. I was firing them off like a pistol. Later I had to come back and apologize. I had to think about it and say “why are you so upset”? I realized that it was just the frustration of waking up again with nowhere to go or nothing to do.
On another occasion, my husband got upset that I parked the car in an area that normally floods. My response was that I didn’t know it was even supposed to rain. We have had 496 of those little spats. Now, we realize that we have to stay busy and give each other the space required, even during the quarantine. I have cleaned every room in the house, redecorated the bedroom and moving to our son’s room next. All I’m saying is quarantine bae beware. 24/7 is not always pretty. Make sure you choose bae wisely and be willing to do the work while getting the work. We have switched our groceries runs to a solo event. This is MY time!
