Activity-kids, Food, Shenanigans, worry

What in the actual heck happened, is happening, will happen?

I mean c’mon, right? I think we all need to just come out and talk about this pandemic elephant in the room, let’s stop pretending it doesn’t exist and live in reality. Ha! Just kidding. I mean – I think all we are ever talking, reading, hearing about these days is COVID-19.

This time 6 weeks ago I couldn’t have told you what an N95 mask was, what “PPE” stood for, that the term “shelter at home” was something you could do without a tornado warning, and which of my kids does really well with online learning (hint: ZERO).

I also now know that Lexapro is a faithful friend. I’ve discovered that (at least) one of my kids, when bored, keeps cutting (and/or coloring) their hair and piercing more holes in their ears (and maybe other places. Wait. what?!).

I call this one:
Fun with filters and Alli’s right arm

Social distancing is an actual phrase now – although one of my word nerd friends reminded me that technically it’s physical distancing and should be referred to as such. I agree with her.

I also started, thanks to Alli (who now has bangs), an online baking class which is FUN (when the internet works and I don’t spend the entire class time switching out my internet and asking everyone to hold up their thumbs if they can hear and see me moving). So far we’ve baked together: Chocolate Chip Cookies, Cinnamon Rolls and Lemon Bars.

I’ve coped by online shopping. Specifically: New running shoes, glasses, books, organic hand sanitizer, new bedding for our bed, paint and canvases for art therapy.

Let me be honest here: this has been HARD. I know I’m not the only one and I hesitated to write about this subject in this space because seriously, who needs one.more.person. writing about their coping during this bizarre time in our world’s history? But I missed you guys in this space and I felt I couldn’t just all of a sudden start writing about random things that pop into my head when all of this is going on.

Anyways (and always), thanks for reading. I promise to talk about something else, anything else! next time I pop-in.

Onward and upward,
