Somehow I was looking for an old post and ended up reading posts from last year. So many things have happened since last year! While we are still in a pandemic, some things are the same and some are different. Join me as I go down memory lane to remember a few things from April 2020.
🗓️ Martini – I do love my martinis but just recently finished that bottle of sour apple pucker. I have no idea why it took me so long. And even with that book, I have not made different ones. I’ve been been drinking more wine. 😬 Still no Martini Party. Maybe next year?
🗓️ Rainbow challenge – This was a fun one! It was also during this time that our Governor extended the stay at home order till May 30th and school was also cancelled for the rest of the year. It was a rough week for me and I cried during one of my runs. I am still having rough weeks but no crying.
🗓️ Remote learning – Who would have thought that I would still be doing remote learning? So much has happened and changed and I am really frustrated with all of it. I’ve been teaching from my classroom since January and I’ve had 3 students in my room since last month. I still send letters to my students. As a way to reward and motivate them, I send them $5 gift cards when they do well in class, a test, an assignment, etc. Will remote learning continue in the Fall?
🗓️ Zoom meetup with blogger friends – Can we do this again?
🗓️ My first Peloton run class – I am so glad I decided to take another class with him again. And then again and again. He is one of my favorite instructors. The constant chatting doesn’t bother me as much anymore. He always has something interesting to say during class. Many times I am learning something new from him. I love his laughter and the many motivating things he mentions. One of my favorites is “Wish for what you want and be ready to receive it”. I might have missed a word or two.

Wow. Can’t believe it’s been a year.
I love chocolate martinis.
Hope next April there will only be good things. New house and no remote anything.
I hope so too about the house and remote learning. It’s been too long.
Its strange to think back on what we were doing last year at this time! I remember we were still saying “when all this is over” as if it would be over in a few weeks. But we know now that obviously didn’t happen!
I wonder if it will ever be over!
Taking a walk down memory is always interesting!
It was fun! I am going to check out May’s posts too. 🙂
I did the rainbow run (or maybe mine was a walk) last spring, too. That would be a fun thing to try again:-)
These memories make me grateful for some of the improvements this April – like an open lakefront and a real life race!
Exactly! I’ve been meaning to head out again to the lakefront. I think the last time I was there was either July or August.
Wow, it’s crazy to look back at how we functioned a year ago with so many unknowns due to COVID. I do wish we could do those Zoom’s again, it was great seeing everyone!
Others have expressed an interest too in another Zoom call so hopefully we can set it up.
I would not have pegged you for a martini drinker! Have a great weekend
It’s amazing to look back at how different things were a year ago! Those Zoom calls were fun – we should do them again!
I still cannot believe a year has gone by!
Ugh, my first thought when I read your headline was, “Do we WANT to remember April 2020?” But reading this post was fun- we’ve definitely come a long way. Except for the remote learning. A year ago we never would have thought we’d still be doing it now, right???
Haha, I can see why you would think that about last year. I thought for sure by now we would all be back in school. Next year we’ll be talking about this again. 🙂
Let’s do a zoom call with martinis!!!! I’m all in for that!!!
Yes, that will be fun!
I’m all in for the Zoom Martini (or Margarita, for Michelle) meet up!
I was thinking about what has changed the most since last year and working from home is definitely number 1; I never really liked it much, didn’t see the point when I’m a mile away from the office. But also working out at home being the norm. Sometimes I really miss the gym but I have everything here so it would kind of be a waste of money to go there now (they are still closed by the way).
In the beginning I also liked working from home, but then got tired of it. I missed the interaction with my coworkers. This is one of the reasons I am glad to be teaching from my classroom.
A zoom call with martinis! I like Jenn’s idea 🙂 This is an interesting post, good to look back at a year ago!
I am going to see how we can set it up!
