Hey y’all!!!! Since DCIB is less of an intellectual film website and more of a cozy little group of friends, I want to know how you all are doing. And I want to share how I am doing with you because you are my bestest friends. In year 3 of the pandemic, this online community is becoming ever more important to me.
For me, my daily life has changed drastically over the past few months. Drastically, but incrementally, so I didn’t realize it until I looked back and went “wow, that’s different!”
I’m now 100% moved in to my forever home. I have a routine for cooking, sleeping, laundry, all of that. I’m no longer going “this is so wonderful!” every day, because it’s become normal to just run downstairs and do laundry, or throw extra boxes in my basement storage room.
Even more wonderful, our household of 3 is increasingly becoming a true household of 3. We have dinner together most nights, have a shared household calendar, and just generally share all the daily boring details of our lives (who is in a fight with a friend, what new recipes we are trying, and so on).
I’ve also started having much more time outside, our new neighborhood is perfect for dog walks (lots of grass, not that many other dogs), and I have discovered the wonders of listening to podcasts on my headphones while walking.
All of this is why I have been less posty and movie-watchy on the blog, but it’s a good thing! I’m spending my evenings with Real People instead of writing blog posts. And I’m spending my free time outside walking in the park instead of watching movies.
I still love you all though 🙂 And I am so happy I have my internet friends to balance my Real Life friends.
And I want to know how you are doing!!!! Have you shifted into a new life after 2 years of pandemic? Without realizing it?
