The Friday Five, 5/29/20: 5 things I've been up to this week

Quarantine, end of week 11. This week was infinitely better than the last, probably because I returned to my condo (admittedly a chopped up condo, but still with working A/C), and wasn't living out of a hotel.

What I've been up to this week:
  1. Moving back to my condo. I checked out of the hotel on Saturday and have been living here ever since. They're now saying they won't start work until 3-4 weeks, probably from NEXT week, but I have working A/C ... the only minor annoyances are I am minus one light in my kitchen, and my upstairs bathroom has half a floor (they had to take it out due to water damage). 
  2. Cooking. I cooked my remaining EveryPlate meals when I got home, and I'm receiving a new EveryPlate box today. I originally was going to get Blue Apron this week, but canceled it since I didn't know if I'd have use of my kitchen this week ... really I should have just delayed it till Thursday or Friday, but I didn't think about that. Most of the meal delivery services have a Friday deadline to order, but EveryPlate's is Sunday, so I chose to do that this week. 
  3. Getting freebies. Pizza Hut was doing free pizza to honor 2020 grads (but you didn't have to be a 2020 grad to get it) and I also got my free Tropical Smoothie; I have one more smoothie code to use before it expires next week, as well. 
  4. Being old. I like to lay on my stomach on my couch sometimes, especially if my stomach isn't feeling well, and when I got up yesterday I could tell I had done something to my back. It hurts to walk today and also to lie down on the couch. I'm looking at heating pads and Amazon is much cheaper ($16.99, Sunbeam brand) than Target, but with Target I could do drive-up and get it today or tomorrow, so that's definitely the more attractive option. 
  5. Virtual game/trivia nights with friends. I have a standing Friday night game night with a college friend, her husband, my boyfriend, and a few UM mutual friends, and on Wednesday night a friend hosted a trivia night over Zoom, too, which will be repeated next Monday. Tomorrow I have a Facebook video chat planned with two friends, too, and we are going to try out the new "Rooms" feature, which I've been told is similar to Zoom.
