FURLOUGHED: What Week Is It Anyway?

My, how time flies during a pandemic lockdown!

I just realized that I have, in fact, been furloughed for four weeks, not three.  I actually started my Furloughed” series during the second week, the first week being when I wrote my “Lockdown!” post.


Somehow I lost an entire week – and I wasn’t even drinking!

I could go back and re-title all the “Furloughed” posts, but that would be way too confusing.  I know how carefully all my readers keep track of my every word (I wish).

So, just consider today’s post to be Week 4, even though it’s not titled that way and is being published only one day after my Week 3 post.  Confused enough yet?  I know I am.

I woke up this morning thinking it was Easter Sunday.  Hubby wondered why I told Puppy Cody to go out and “find the Easter bunny.”  I wondered why hubby brought in the day’s mail (we never get mail on a Sunday!).  ‘Long about 3 pm, I finally realized today is actually Saturday.

Have any of you ever laughed at someone who didn’t seem to know what day (or week) it was?  Not quite so amusing now, is it?

Stay in, everyone.  Stay safe, stay healthy.

But keep your calendar updated.

    Yeah retirement is a lot like that: nothing particular to delineate the days.
    For me this self-isolation stuff is just like daily life has been, with the added improvement of having a really good excuse to put off going to town any time I don’t want to. :p


    • This feels a little different than when I “retired” a couple of years ago (for all of 3 months). At least then, I could arrange to meet friends for lunch and take short road trips. By the time I began losing track of the calendar, I was already back to work.

    Days blend into each other right now. I think it’s a normal thing. Either that or hubs left the mail in the box and is messing with you 😉

    Happy Easter (tomorrow) CM.

    being chronically ill, I am not always sure the date……now there are moments I wonder what month it is! 🙂

    Maybe what might help is a stick of chalk and a brick wall, so you can keep track of the days. I hope it’s a big wall, as this looks like it may last a long time.


  5. LOL! Happy Easter to you and yours, CM! Be well, safe and happy. ヽ(^‥^=ゞ)


  6. The only way I know what week it is would be to look at the calendar and count the weeks. Otherwise? I don’t know what day it is or what week.


  7. I just counted. Five weeks and three days. That’s a lot of staying home.


    • You’re a better counter than me. Except for the fact that I CAN’T go out (to shop, meet friends or do photography), I’d be perfectly content with this situation. I probably won’t want to go back to work when the time comes.

    I’m at 3 1/2 weeks working at home and, yes, counting, CM. That working at home bit keeps me knowing what day of week it is, though.


    • I would have worked at home if I could have, but now that I’m just home I find I like it that way. It would have been annoying to actually have to answer to someone on all these days off. 🙂


  9. I lost track of the days years ago when looking forward to the weekend lost its meaning because EVERY day was the weekend when we retired! Hubby has a pill box with the days of the week on it, and he’s still confused bless him! All I know for sure is that every day has a ‘Y’ in it. Take care and keep safe.

    I’ve been having trouble knowing what day it is too, CM. Somehow it doesn’t even matter. Today is today regardless of the official name for it. When my gym closed my M-W-F schedule went right out the window, something I could keep my days straight with. Anyways, Happy Easter!

    We are essential, not that I think it makes any sense. I’ve been working almost full days for almost a week, so I do know what day and date it is 😀 What a perk! Lol
