Tuesday’s are the day that I cry. Well, for the last 5 weeks anyway. In this Quarantine, Tuesday’s have seemed to be the hardest day for me.
They are the day I am most worried, most anxious and get the bad news. They are the days that I am emotional, exhausted and never feel like cooking dinner.
Today, today that was different.
My youngest woke up in a good mood, which then helped my mood. He was ready to have breakfast and then get our school days started. After eating and changing we left for a walk around 9am.
When we left it was sunny and about 2 seconds later it turned grey and started snowing, LOL. So, we powered through a short walk around the block. We both needed exercise and so did our dogs. While around the other side of the street we saw a teacher from the elementary school and it brightened all of our days.
When we got home, we continues on with our school day. Jumping jacks and push-up together, kinetic sand play and math learning. We started thinking about lunch and then unexpectedly got a video chat call from my grandfather in Florida. My grandpa and grandma both have COVID 19. My grandma was in the hospital for 11 days, now she is home. They are both at home, but separately. Noah and I chatted with them, my mom and my aunt.
We ate lunch together, did some more kinetic sand play, a few chore and then it was rest time. My 7 year old boy has been taking naps during rest time like 2 or 3 days a week now, after not taking naps for a good 3 years. I don’t mind it at all though and am thankful that he is taking the rest he needs while he is home. After all, isn’t that part of the beauty of us being home together?
I have communicated with many friends, had some groceries delivered and officially adopted our foster today. It has been a Good Tuesday ❤
