I think it would be nice to paint

Today I wanted to do something different, something fun, something that didn’t involve a TV or computer. I felt like paint or coloring.

Today was … Continue reading I think it would be nice to paint

Another day in lockdown

This morning started like any other morning in quarantine but I just couldn’t bring myself to go to the treadmill or the stationary bike. The thought of doing that again this morning just bored me.

Epilepsy and COVID-19

When I first heard of the Coronavirus spread, the first question I had was if it would increase my risk of seizures, if it would cause one, even while I'm on medication or if it increased the risk of coronavirus. People with epilepsy are not immunocompromised so it does not put us at a higher … Continue reading Epilepsy and COVID-19

Be together when you’re far away

You will finally find a place through trial an … Continue reading Working from home

Social distancing day 3 or 4

So I’m not really sure how long this social distancing has been because I don’t know when I should have started counting. Was it Sunday or Monday? It doesn’t really matter anyway because it doesn’t change the fact that we can’t go out. I’m not complaining about this, I actually think it has been good … Continue reading Social distancing day 3 or 4

A day in San Juan

I thought our Sunday walk would not be that long today because we walked with Indy and Sandy yesterday and it looked like it was going to rain today. We first did the Paseo de la Princesa and El Morro walk, which seemed shorter today. Maybe it was because we had already done it, maybe … Continue reading A day in San Juan
