On the Bright Side

Or in our household, on the light side!

One positive side effect in this current age of social distancing/quarantine (and I'm making a deliberate effort to see that there are many) is that our laundry loads have become lighter.

I've blogged here about the differences of doing laundry in Switzerland compared to back in the US, but today I'm not airing our dirty laundry...because we don't have much!

Now that we're home all the time, the balance of our wardrobe is shifting. Of course, it has everything to do with not having to dress up to go to work, but I can assure you, we are all wearing pants and we change them daily.

Yes, this needs to be clarified because apparently that is not the case in all households during the current situation. In fact, I read an article that the sales of tops are up, but not bottoms. It actually makes sense since your colleagues on a video conference calls can only see you from your top up. And believe me, your dog doesn't care if you are wearing dress pants or sweat pants. Wear whatever you want as long as you share your cheese.

Smidgey hiding out until someone shares their cheese. :)

Oh, and another reason things are on the bright side over here is it is staying light later! Last Sunday, 29 March, Switzerland started our daylight saving time by springing forward. Unfortunately, we now have a 9 hour time difference with California, where most of our family is, but alas, we have more daylight to go out and enjoy sit home and self isolate. Oh well...

Today's poem is proof that the little things make a big difference:

our laundry still multiplies
but the rate at which slows
we're all business on top
cause on camera that shows

look at the bright side
while you hang out at home
time spent not doing laundry
could lead to a poem
