This is rough. One day blends into the next and home projects continue to be undone for no good reason.
While life as usual has been completely disrupted by coronavirus, my personal struggle and biggest void has much more to do with losing my sweet Oscar on March 2nd. I considered a dedicated tribute post, but just can’t seem to bring myself to do that quite yet. Suffice to say, we are heartbroken and saying goodbye was not and has not been easy.
To that end, what do you do when stuck at home, sad and in need of distraction?
I’m a big fan of walking and have been uplifted seeing so many people doing so. The more I walk the better I feel, both physically and mentally. So, while gyms remain closed, I walk on my treadmill or outside with responsible social-distance in mind, of course.
If I’m a fan of walking, I’m certainly an even bigger fan of TV. I’ve been filling the void with some pretty good shows and came to the conclusion that I love British television. If you like suspense, definitely check out The Stranger and Broadchurch (I was so excited when I realized there were 3 seasons). Both set in England and really well done.
Other British Shows I’ve Binged and Liked…
After Life – Ricky Gervais – Kind of heartbreaking, but good.
Derek – Also Ricky Gervais – quirky and good.
Crashing – watched a while ago and found interesting.
Gavin & Stacey – James Corden, cute.
Kath & Kim – Actually an Australian show, but similar kooky British humor. Silly, but funny.
Other Shows I’ve Liked…
Northern Rescue – good.
Virgin River – good.
Dirty John – creepy, but good.
Broad City – outrageous, super silly, funny (if you like absurd humor).
High Fidelity – cool, interesting, different.
Do you have any show recommendations?
And so now we wait. What more is there to say or do? This is, by far, the strangest time in my life.
I hope you are doing well and filling the void as best you can.
Wishing you all good health and sanity.
