17 Things To Do While Quarantined

     If you've tested positive for COVID-19 and you're stuck quarantining at home, there are plenty of things to do to stay busy. Yeah, I know it's hard to see your friends sharing vacation photos and fancy dinners on social media. That's called FOMO (fear of missing out). Just remember though, not all of us are going out partying. I for one am staying home and only visiting my family. Sure, I feel a bit stir crazy and have been eating my way through this pandemic, but I've also discovered some pretty inventive ways to stay busy. You should try a few of these ideas:


1. Learn how to French braid the leg hairs you haven't shaved in three months.

2. During your next Zoom meeting, count how many times Jerry from Accounting coughs and touches his face. 


3. Take a nap.

4. Count your remaining sheets of toilet paper and ration them out square by square with family members.


5. Learn Russian through Rosetta Stone to decipher who's actually meddling in the 2020 elections.

6. Watch the squirrels mating in your oak tree

7. Make hand sanitizer with dual-purpose vodka---half for hand washing, half for happy hour shots.



8. Build a treehouse from random Lego pieces left in the couch cushions by your eight-year-old grandson.

9. Plot the demise of the online Peloton instructor who screams at you to pedal faster every morning.



10. Google 15 ways to reuse leftover antibacterial wipes to make them last longer. 

11. Build a lazy river in your backyard by building a trench and using a very long hose.

12. Take another nap.



13. Collect your toenail clippings for your kids' next homeschooling craft project.

14. After a Facebook ad tells you that a higher density of fat cells prevents the coronavirus from infecting you, order a baker's dozen from Dunkin Donuts to boost your immune system.

15. Take a third nap.


16. Watch reruns of Little House On The Prairie to get ideas on how to spend your time productively during the quarantine.

17. Order a butter churn and a wooden plow from Amazon.

  1. You left out the most obvious thing couples can do during a quarantine. (Maybe that explains why this event is NOT leading up to a baby boom!)

  2. Here is a crazy one... have that knee replacement surgery you've been putting off. Sounds nuts, but my Mom said, "I'm just sitting around her doing nothing anyway, so might as well take care of this!" LOL!

  4. LOL!! All of these are hilarious! OMG, Peloton...not even during Quarantine would I do this or because of quarantine? Anywho, bring on the vodka and the dunkin' donuts! :D

    1. I'll bet you can come up with a great vodka cocktail recipe for us, too

  7. How about #16 watch spiders build webs in your back yard? or #17 watch squirrels demolish your flower plantings? I hadn't even thought of having surgery but my sister in law had hip surgery in May - so it's not as crazy an idea as you might think.

    1. This would actually be the BEST time to have surgery---plenty of time to stay home and recoup!

  8. My days haven't changed much between normal life and lockdown life

    1. We could use it for all the baking we're doing during this pandemic, right?

  10. These are so fun! I am definitely thinking about making myself a lazy river to lounge around in while I learn Russian. I actually started with "HELLO!" (privyet!) when I had a lot of Russians show up in my livestream broadcasts in 2015. Hmmmm. Interesting! :-)

    Order a drone on Amazon and spy on your neighbors. :D
