Santa Cruz Shelter in Place 2020: Day 8
It’s the start of the second week of the Shelter in Place Ordinance, here in Santa Cruz, due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Day 8 was a Monday, and it started out with coffee in bed! Did I mention that getting coffee in bed in one of my favorite things? Besides laughter, I love laughter and coffee in bed.
Then I had to clean up my “work space” aka my house, so that I can focus on my work! I cannot work in disorder. I was also able to utilize technology to have a Zoom meeting with my colleagues at David Lyng Real Estate! I’ll keep you posted on what I learn.
This Monday was also Ellia’s first day of Distance Learning! Where Ellia can see her teacher and peers online and have a virtual classroom setting. So they’re gonna do in class learning from afar, and then they’ll break and do their lesson and they’ll come back and they’ll be able to ask questions, so that’s super cool and you know I’m just so grateful for the people in our community and all over the world really who are banning together putting their family and friends and neighbors first and really doing what they can to contribute in this really trying time. So thank you every body who is leading with their heart and doing what we can to survive right now.
I had to take a break from work and get outside, and I decided to attempt to learn how to do doubleunders with a jump rope! Let me tell you, it’s way harder than it looks! And after the day, you get to see the up close and personal, real back in real estate, Shemeika!
If you are within the at-risk population and are in need of essentials, do not hesitate to reach out to me, I’m here to help! And if you’re a Santa Cruz Business owner, please let me know how my family can support you during this time!

Do you hear that? The water’s boiling. I know there’s almost gonna be coffee in bed. Did I mention that I love coffee in bed? It’s one of my favorite things, in the world. Besides laughter, I love laughter and coffee in bed.
Okay, new take, take number five. Ellia does not want to be in this take, so she’s not, but I’m finishing my first cup of coffee in bed, ’cause remember Danny brought me coffee in bed, like a good man, and I’m gonna get up and instead of getting myself ready because I’m gonna show up to work at my kitchen table in my daytime pajamas.
Phew, okay, I think I’m losing my brain, losing my mind, losing my mind, okay so instead of getting myself ready for work, I’m gonna get my house ready for it because I cannot work in disorder. So I’m gonna tidy up, make the bed, pick up, make sure that the kitchen’s clean and then I’m gonna go to work and Ellia has her first day of in classroom learning on Google classroom where she actually gets to see her teacher face to face and her peers. So they’re gonna do in class learning from afar, distant learning and then they’ll break and do their lesson and they’ll come back and they’ll be able to ask questions, so that’s super cool and you know I’m just so grateful for the people in our community and all over the world really who are banning together putting their family and friends and neighbors first and really doing what they can to contribute in this really trying time. So thank you every body who is leading with their heart and doing what we can to survive right now. Sending love from the bedroom with my coffee. Happy Monday.
Taking out the recycling and remember when I was like Danny made coffee which is so sweet but he left the kitchen a mess. What? Danny, love you Danny. Don’t put that on. I need to put a bra on. Where did our music go?
I am about to get on our meeting. Hey you can see my toilet in the background, let me change angles. Now you can see my toilet paper in the background. I’m about to get on our David Lyng meeting via Zoom. So this should be an interesting time to utilize technology to overcome our distancing. Keep you posted on what I learn.
I don’t know, who should I go, I’m gonna go with the lady. How to do double unders, how to get consistent and huge sets. That’s what I want. Bam, all right, let’s go do this. Okay seriously, take 365 double-unders are hard. Let’s see what we can do. Ah! Okay the next bit of instruction is a double tap of a bar which I don’t really have but I think I can make do, it’s crazy what we can make do with these days, with this little roof. So, she says about six inches up and then you just jump up I’m gonna go for the top of the roof and then you jump up and you double tap. I’m still only getting one each time. Ah, that’s really hard. You try that, that’s really hard.
Okay, next bit of instruction is lightly turn over your wrists like you’re knocking water off. So let’s see if I can get this. Keep my elbows in and– That feels pretty good, actually. This lady was a really good teacher. Nope, still didn’t get that. I did whip myself though.
This pipe here is sweating a little bit. Like see how it’s coming out just a hair? Yeah. So I think… Josh here to save the day. Hi. Thank you, Josh. You’re welcome. We love you. We’re paying him don’t worry. We’ll take care of him. But plumbers are in the gray area anyways. Yeah, oh we gotta have six feet. Oh yeah, stay back, stay back. All right, we’ll try to fix your leak here. Okay, and then can we do also the–
Ellia what did you do for art today? This. Oh that’s so pretty. How’d you do that, and what is it? It’s a wine glass and I put expo marker and made these flower shapes and I traced over it with hot glue and then I painted over the hot glue, black. That’s beautiful. Do I get to use it to drink Courvoisier? Yeah, but you have to hand wash it because this might peel off. That makes sense. Oh did you just peel it off? No but I almost did. Thank you, I love you.
Maybe this whole section is TMI. You don’t need to know about my bath experience and you don’t need to know about me peeing my pants. But it is Monday and we are putting the real back in real estate, so there you have it. And you get to see all my pimples too. Probably my beard and mustache as well. Can’t wait to get groomed, dear Lord. Also, to fill you in, I was not successful in any more than one single double-under, but I was very successful in peeing in my pants. What does an almost 40 year old woman do to do jump rope successfully with out going to the bathroom in her pants, help!
