Usually, I write my blog posts the day before. So for Monday’s post, I usually write it on Friday. But Friday I was not feeling it. I felt as if I was just wandering through my day.
In fact, I was just wandering through the day. Have you felt like that lately? I’m a stay-at-home mom so I am home way more often than your average joe but I like to get out and do things.
Caroline and I like to go to the mall, meet friends at the park, head to the zoo, go to Target, and explore the beautiful Tampa Bay area we live in. But obviously, with the advice, we’ve been given to stay at home, that’s what we’ve been doing.
It hasn’t been all bad. We’ve found a new normal around here but I’m already ready to go back to the old way of life. I probably sound like a brat saying that because so many people are suffering or have lost loved ones due to the virus. I can’t imagine, I just can’t. We’ve been staying home for that exact reason, I don’t want any of us to contract the virus.
But what has our new normal looked like? Well, I’ve still been getting up early, which has been nice to keep that going. And I’m still teaching VIPKID in the mornings.
John was home from work on Friday and might be this week, we don’t know yet. So he heads upstairs to work and Caroline and I have been playing outside. Then it’s lunch, naptime, more playing inside and outside. Snacks and making dinner. And bedtime.
It’s the simplest days we’ve ever had but so exhausting. I just feel like I’m not letting myself fall into the whole we are at home I should take it easy thing.
I think it’s because I’m just constantly thinking about when this is going to end, do we have enough food, what about toilet paper, should I go to the store or should I have it delivered, what are the facts, are we as a nation under-reacting or overreacting? And the list goes on.
I know these are a lot of random thoughts strung together but I just wanted to share what life has been like in our little bubble lately.
I hope you and your family are doing well, staying sane and healthy and creating a bond that will live on.
Tomorrow I will be back with some of the fun items we’ve been using while at home. All available on Amazon!
