Back Home Again in Indiana
This morning I voice tracked two shows in my closet while answering 896 questions re the power going out the other night and crossing my fingers the loudly rustling paper wasn’t too distracting. I’ll be back in the closet tonight for a voice over session and again this weekend for another voice over project because that’s when Jesse will be home to tame the beast and give me enough time to knock it out. To say I’m ready for life to go back to normal would be an understatement. But as much as I’m ready for normalcy, there are some things I’ll miss about quarantine. And the commute is at the top of the list.
Whereas sleeping until 7 in real life has me running hella late with no breakfast and looking like a hobo, in quarantine life I can sleep until 7, take a shower, make Boogs breakfast, unload the dishwasher, make my breakfast and still be at work early. Holla for the 30 second commute up the stairs.
I’ll also miss the extra time with Boogs. Granted my ears actually hurt from his nonstop chatter and questions this morning and we’ve had more than our fair share of tantrums, but overall we’ve had a pretty great 3 weeks home together playing, watching movies, and one of us teaching the other it is in fact possible to subsist on nothing but snacks.
Quarantine’s also been pretty great on the sleep front. Boogs hasn’t been taking a nap while we’ve been home so he’s actually going right to sleep at bedtime which has left me with more than 10 minutes a day to call my own. It’s been glorious to get to read more than half a chapter in my book or watch an entire hour long show at night (sometimes even both!) without having to stay up until midnight to make it happen.
And I’d be lying if I said I haven’t been enjoying working from the deck. Granted there’s no ideal time for a global pandemic, but if we have to quarantine, at least we’re doing it in the spring.
