  1. Listen to news, read social media gist and engaged in house chores. I am an introvert before now, I always prefer my own company, so I am cool with it.

I study all night, sleep all morning with hubby more than happy to handle breakfast withe children, then i play all afternoon till evening. Isnt life amazing?!

  3. I'm home with my family.
    Salaries haven't been paid but we tried to get the necessary food stuffs we could even though prices of things have unbelievably been hiked.

    We just pray, eat, surf the net, read books, watch TV and chat in between.

    No one leaves the house except to buy food items.

    God help us and our families in Enugu as our Governor appears to be clueless.

    Big ups to the governor of Lagos State.

    God please let this cup pass over us else we be doomed.

    We're literarily out of job at the moment and nothing is guaranteed.

  4. We are all at home; 6 kids, my DH and I and a relative and we:

    1. Observe all the medical precautions; washing hands, avoiding the crowd, resting, avoiding touching the face with unwashed hands etc. But except the Lord watches the city, the watchmen watch in vain (Psalm 127:1), so we do all these and more…
    2. Everybody is fasting; yes, it is a period of intercession for humanity (2 Chron. 7:13-17), and for those in authority that they make the right decisions; 1 Timothy 2:1-3. We all eat one well balanced meal a day in the evening. The very small kids eat fruits during the day when they get hungry and join the family dinner. Nivevites fasted and the Lord withdrew the calamity that would have befallen their nation. We've been greatly encouraged by the Lord about what is happening to our world. If you get closer to him, he will show you great and mighty things that you do not know: Jer. 33:3
    3. We break bread in our home daily; Acts 2:46, and like he promised in the Passover –when I see the blood, I will Passover you; Exodus 12:13, (other helpful Scriptures 1 Cor. 11:29-30, Luke 22). Beloved, the destroyer is passing by...
    4. We do scheduled Bible studies more often and also interact with our relatives and people of God online to encourage them in these hard times; Hebrew 3:13. We do send financial aids to by online transfers etc.
    5. We generally try to be lively by praise worship; recorded gospel songs or playing our musical instruments and singing during prayers.
    6. I also come to SDK’s blog to catch some fun like I dey do now. Yes, and I don’t forget to keep alive my truthful yarns to all my friends.
    It will surely come to pass 😘😘😘

    3. Bingo, aren't you the same bv as ANG? I have seen you both make same post before, and contemporaneously as well. So, why responding to yourself?

      Anyway, to the question:
      I started working on my Phd proposal today. After this thing is called off, I would love to have everything I need for my application, in tow. I'm also reading a book, reading on random and interesting topics and deliberately building my vocabulary this period.

    Washing clothes while they rinse

    Cooking

    Giving the kids home work, marking them and doing corrections

    Playing games together

    1. Hello Dear,
      I just got drawn to your comment. I know how you can get over this, because I can relate- the solution is JESUS.
      Do you know him? If yes, get closer to him. If you don't know him, then get to know him.

      It's all in three simple steps:
      1. Accept Jesus into your life as your Lord and Saviour/ rededicate your life to him.

      2. Confess all your sins and shortcomings so that the devil can never blackmail or haunt you. Pls don't go back to your old ways.

      3. Cast all your cares upon Jesus. Gist with him, like you will gist with anyone. Ask him for peace, joy and hope.

      It worked for me and I know it will work for you.

      Much love

    2. Annony12.24 we are in the same boat. My anxiety is on another level now.I don't even know what to take to calm my body down

      Delete
    3. Anon 12:24, do some indoor exercise, it will help. Let God take control of the "unknown ".

      Supplements and vitamins can help with this anxiety like,

      Omega-3 Fatty Acids

      Probiotics

      GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid)  

      Passionflower(I use it a lot when preparing a day before exams and during). There are extract and tablet, I tend to added into teas and tinctures.

      Valerian Root is one great supplement too.

      Licorice Root (I love this because it is sweet, can chew it like chewing stick, I carry everywhere)..lol

      Ashwagandha (I use this more during Winter).

      All the very best dearπŸ€—

      I can get you some Licorice supplements when this restriction has stop.Just on me.

  21. I have never masturbated so much in my life atleast 10x a day. It seems like nothing else to do. The sad part is that I lack energy to do anything else afterwards.
