Ernie wants to walk, not dance

When Ja’Leyah is visiting Ernie doesn’t mind as much to be late for a walk. Ja’Leyah Leggett is the older niece who visited with her baby sister who was born in the middle of this pandemic.

I dance 30 minutes straight for exercise everyday now to keep up my health. At first, I was just learning dances but now I’m watching dance exercise videos. I really like hip hop tabata exercises. They’re pretty fun.

This is also how I’m trying to relax and de-stress. Dancing isn’t just for my physical health but it kinda helps mentally too. I started to take pictures as well. Any memories I can capture in a photo really. Anything to keep me occupied.

One of my older sister’s came to visit. She brought both of my nieces, including the one who was born only a few weeks ago in March.  She said no one was allowed in the hospital room to see the birth. She had to really fight the doctors on letting the father in but the virus has a lot of people being really cautious. In the end though, I think he was able to see his daughter being born.

I don’t know why you would want to see that though.

I hung out with my other niece who is pretty lively compared to me but I still played with her. She really likes the dog and Jacqueline’s keyboard. We watched some Miraculous Ladybug too. Then they left and I went back to doing whatever. Wait out this storm anyway I can.

Also, Angy dyed her hair blue. It looks cool. I tried asking my mom but she said no.



Happy Easter to whoever celebrates it.

At 11 A.M., my great aunt called and started her prayer. Afterwards, we ate bread and I drank cranberry juice with my siblings. I think we were feasting on Jesus. I thought that was a little weird but I like food so eh.

Today is a little hard to recall. My days have been so repetitive. It’s hard to keep track.

I know I walked Ernie. He complains when we’re late with that. I also did more exercising. I’m doing a lot of thigh work. I’m going to start with my core soon. I also decided that I should probably moderate what I eat. I was thinking about fasting but I don’t know yet. I’m just doing whatever, to be honest.

I’m going to play my game and watch something now.
