From trying to get through a meeting before your toddler asks for a snack, waiting with crossed fingers for the next presidential directive regarding lock-down…
Like many mommas, one of my biggest goals this year was to spend more intentional time with my daughter and take her on many ‘first time’ dates. So, I wrote down ideas for activities she had never done, like swimming, and places she had never been, like the zoo. I had managed to knock off a few of these, then in came the ‘Rona’. Because most, if not all the activities I came up with were outdoorsy, and the outdoors are currently closed till further notice, I thought I would have to cancel everything.
I do not know how to respond to the global pandemic.
I am hopeful sometimes and then I am not. I am frustrated by the inconveniences the lock-down has brought about then I am reminded that it could get a lot worse than just inconvenient.
Most days I am getting by. Living a day at a time. Washing my hands, staying home and avoiding touching my face.
