COVID-19 Shelter in Place Tasks


Things to do while in quarantine when you’re an OCD person –

Count your rolls of toilet paper

Clean the dust from your refrigerator coils

Clean the crumb tray on your toaster

Clean under the gas burners on the stove

Make those stainless steel appliances shine

Count your rolls of toilet paper

Vacuum the bottom of cupboard drawers

Wipe down the kitchen cupboards

Have all food labels face forward

Count your rolls of toilet paper

Empty a closet, discard old items

Change out your seasonal clothes

Clean out & organize your desk drawers

Count your rolls of toilet paper

Make new playlists for your car’s flash drive

Clean out the car’s console & glove box

Count your rolls of toilet paper

Stock the beverage refrigerator

Have an adult beverage (or two)

Give your spouse a kiss

Wait for it……………….

STOP counting that damn toilet paper!

I hope I made you smile during this difficult time for us all. May you stay safe & healthy, and may this all be behind us soon!

Please feel free to comment with any suggestions for additional tasks that may keep our minds focused on something more positive! (and more fun!)

  1. Thanks for sharing Michael!!! Being an OCD person I shared in most of your tasks! I think you missed one important task – consuming Katie’s baked goods (please tell me she baked for you this week)!!!!

    1. Thank you for reading. Kate has not baked this week, but funny you should mention it, because she just prepared a mixture that has to sit overnight so we can have homemade Belgian waffles in the morning. And she just fired up the KitchenAid mixer for some homemade cookies, so I think I’m going to be good to go!! Can you say “Yum”?! Oh, Kate just reminded me that she baked 24 shortbread cookies on Monday, but Chloe broke thru her gate Monday evening and ate all of them!
