I haven’t posted in a while. I know, I know. I do have more time on my hands now that I’m home all day. But strangely enough I have more to do and busier while being home all day. I also want to make sure content isn’t just pushing aside this Coronavirus Pandemic we are going through. I don’t want to ignore that fact of life like some bloggers are sadly doing.
How are my day’s going? Right now it’s Passover and I’m in a home with my family. Our activities consist of eating, talking, electronics, pool, eating and more eating. But I also have been working out daily. It’s been keeping me sane and anxious free (less than usual) as well as making me feel good that I’m working on that flatter belly of mine LOL!
Other than Passover, my days are actually quite busy until about 3pm. I obviously wake up, dress myself and the babe, feed her and than get my workout for the day done. During this time my older daughter is joining her class on Zoom (9am-12pm). After my workout I sit with my other daughter and do her assignments from her teachers. She then has Zoom with her class from 1:15pm-3pm. My oldest has assignments after her Zoom class too. But why so many hours? I can’t even stand it LOL. I feel like I’ve become a homeschool mom. I didn’t sign up for that!
During all the above work with kids in school and helping them do their assignments, I have the babe too. Feedings, keeping her entertained, naps, etc. Not to mention, making lunches and dinners. DAILY. Let me tell you, this new life thanks to the Coronavirus Pandemic has made me busier than a regular day with the kids at school and me working. I’m literally pooped when the evening rolls around. I know there are SAHM’s that don’t find this any different than any other day, but I don’t think most of them are homeschooling too. So it is a bit different.
So you can see, I’m busy to the point of “when I get a minute to breathe, I’m relaxing.” And that includes not working on my blog. As much as I should, I’m just so pooped most nights and can’t even think of doing any brain storming, writing, typing, editing, etc.
Now, the major question: How am I dealing with this new life of mine?
I’m dealing pretty okay. Of course I have bouts of anxiety hit me or feelings of being mad at this new life of mine. But I have to realize this will be over soon. Hopefully. Everything has an end to it. And this Coronavirus Pandemic will have its end too.
Also, I have never spent this much time with my kids and family as I do now. I need to be grateful for that. At least I’m not alone. I have my kids. My parents. And yes my parents because I have seen them every single day since before social distancing started and during.
So yes, life is busier and more hectic. Yes, I have more anxious thoughts. Yes, I’m upset about the entire situation we are living in and dealing with. But yes, I should be thankful for health and family. And I know many have lost loved ones and I don’t even want to start imagining the pain they’re feeling. But they should know, they are in everyone’s thoughts and prayers. We’re all in this together!
