There seems to be two prevailing attitudes when it comes to the pandemic.
First, there is the productivity school of thought.
This generally means plans to finally finish that novel (hell, maybe write several novels) while simultaneously organizing your cellar, planting a garden, homeschooling your children, and participating enthusiastically during Zoom meetings with amusing background filters.
Next, there is the chaos approach.
This usually involves a lot of home-baked carbohydrates, a distinct lack of pants, and (if you’re Ina Garten) a martini glass full of Cosmopolitans the size of your head that you’re hitting like a sledgehammer well before noon.
Please keep in mind: I am not judging either stance.
