normal: Go dog go cafe

DEVEREAUX FRAZIER AND BETH AMANDA ARE CURRENTLY HOSTING THE TUESDAY WRITING PROMPT CHALLENGE: https://godoggocafe.com/2020/05/05/tuesday-writing-prompt-challenge-tuesday-may-5-2020/

Today’s prompt: Write a piece of prose around the question: What does a return to “normal” look like for you?

My new normal

Each day I awaken with the sun. I climb out of bed, get dressed and head downstairs. First, the dog goes out. During his business I pick grasses and dandelions for the guinea pigs. We come in, the guinea pigs get the fresh greens and then the dog gets fed. Next, my medications and vitamins.

Each morning I do the same things but in different orders: WordPress blogging, building miniatures, cleaning the house.

I go shopping once a week for groceries.

I have one online appointment on Monday morning with my therapist.

I don’t go anywhere and I love it.

I don’t want to return to how it was….Doctor’s appointments, running errands, meeting up with people. I know it isn’t exactly the friendliest of lives but it suits me just fine to see a few people every so often while staying home accomplishing things I want to do each day.
