50 Things To (Maybe) Do While Under Travel Quarantine

You did it…you left your state!

If you’re like me, you may unexpectantly find yourself on the list of a mandatory travel quarantine. Long story……college move-in. Now you have two weeks at home and you don’t work an “I can do it from home” kind of job.

What’s a girl to do?

I’m on Day 2 of quarantine. Day 1 was spent recovering and cleaning up the house…another long story. Over the weekend, I began pondering how I could best use this free time I have been gifted.

That may have been a mistake.
