Today is 250 days my family has staying inside since the start of the pandemic. I'm starting to reach "Pandemic Fatigue." I'm just tired. I'm tired of being home. I'm tired of wanting to go sit in a coffee shop and people watch. I love being home with my family. I consider that one of the best gifts that this year has given me, but on the other hand, I cannot see my family on the other side of the border until the border can reopen. I have read many books this year. I joined the Jen Hatmaker Book Club and its one of the best things I've done in a long time.
My children are being taught by me and I feel like they are missing so much. I'm no teacher. I try my best to teach them but its hard. Right now, I have one child upstairs resting in bed because he is sick.
I'm tired of seeing the counts of people dying every day. I'm mad that people do not take in consideration others and do not follow social distancing guidelines, do not wear a mask, and act like a pandemic is going on. This is such a sad and unusual time. We are living history.
I know I want to be on the right side of history and be proud to tell my grandkids and my great-grandkids that I survived 2020 (and most likely 2021) and did what I could to help people.
What are you doing to survive 2020? Any good books? Movies? Recipes? Funny story? Inspirational story?
I'd love to hear from you. Be safe and take care of yourselves!
Blessings to you and yours!
