“Oh, the weather outside is…..” gorgeous. But sadly we cannot go out to really enjoy it. “We should go somewhere on this gorgeous day!” Apparently, our outing was to get tacos on Taco Tuesday from the supermercado around the corner. It will have to do. Spring is here and South Carolina and Georgia are opening up beaches. Plus gyms, department stores and massage therapy spots? They are instructed to practice social distancing. How do you get a massage without touching your client? Odd. This One Busy Bee is not protesting this shelter-in-place order. To and from the grocery store or to pick up food is A-OK with me. I do miss the gym but I am managing. Let’s see what else is happening around the world.
My roommate is a Disney freak! I say that in the most loving way and it’s OK if you gladly fit in this category too. I went to over 70 Los Lonely Boys concerts, so we all have our thing. An 18-year-old apparently broke into California Adventure (Travel & Leisure 4/20/20) and had the whole park to himself for a little bit. I know this would a fantasy for some of you fanatics, but don’t be this guy.
With all the Disney parks closed until further notice, I am happy to have had ran two half marathons last year and have been to Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris to do them! And I received a special medal. As a Disney Certified Travel Agent, I was looking forward to experiencing their cruise line as well. Perhaps in 2021.
Comment below if you’re a Disney fan and tell me what is your favorite character.
“If you’re postponing your wedding, your planner can be a major source of assistance—helping you rebook vendors, handle communication, and more. You can still work with—and pay—your planner as he or she helps you with your new plans. And if you haven’t hired a wedding planner already, you may want to enlist one to help you if the stress of postponing your wedding is becoming too much.” – Wedding Wire 3/18/20.
As an Event Planner, I am unable to plan weddings, scope out venues or meet with potential Brides and Grooms. Like Wedding Wire, there are many news outlets and bloggers posting lists of what you can do with your time if you are bored at home. Thank you to those doing what you can to support small businesses like me. We appreciate every referral, retweet, Facebook like and share to your network on social media.
In some stores, toiled paper and paper towels are available but baking items are running pretty low. My roommate was pretty excited they had eggs at our local Safeway. (Thanks for the Monopoly tickets as well!) If you look at your social media feed, I am sure I am not the only one that comes across freshly baked goods on the daily. Pinterest has gotten many visits by me personally and my pin count have gone up to more than just quotes. I have made cookies three times and my cupcake pan is waiting to be used. Banana bread seems to be a popular item to make as well.
The weather is nice. Even if we could go outside, I would be inside on applying to jobs. Millions are on unemployment and it is nice that companies are offering remote positions. In my recent experience, I have applied to several jobs while my current employer is going thru questionable times. Normally, I would be able to get a restaurant job, push Stella & Dot jewelry, plan travel for clients and/or have a wedding to work on. Not at this point. I am finishing up certifications for the travel industry but perhaps I should do more in the healthcare field. I am not too worried at this point. I am hoping work continues and I do not have to file for unemployment. Once certifications are done, I will be putting more energy into my many other things. For the time-being, I am staying in, working on me, trying not to stress and hoping for a bright future for all of us. Keep the positive vibes going!
Have a great week!
