Day 6: The Game of LIFE

Today I should have been having a hair day at Hartwood I had canceled early this week knowing it wouldn’t happen. However, when I did cancel I decided I’d just pay for it and tip my stylist. Trying to do my part to help small businesses. I’ll have a free haircut and color waiting for me in May. Instead of a hair appointment, I spent the day with this dude. We played a game of Battleship and LIFE, folded laundry and played Mario Kart (I totes suck)

There were tons of laughs, hugs, and high fives. I literally can’t remember the last time we hung out like that. No one melted down either (miracle) 

While our evening plans went a bit haywire we all came together in the end because times like this call for unity. 

Today’s lesson, remember the little moments for they make big memories. Also, stay off social media for a day it makes all the difference. 

Be kind to one another. 

And So it Begins …

DAY 5 Quarantine

Today a bottle of shampoo made me cry. The stylist where I get my shampoo is closed. I commented on a post about needing shampoo and they responded that they could hook me up. We met at the salon and he delivered it to my car. As he refused to take payment I forced him to take and paid him double because we need to help small businesses.

I cried at his generosity and at the fact that this is our new normal.

Facebook has been moving at break neck speed and it’s been hard to keep up. I feel an extreme need to connect people and help in any way I can. Even if it’s just providing marketing advice.

A bright spot was when my sweet friend delivered pizza to my old co-workers at Melrose Meadows who are working hard to take care of our seniors.

The boys have been bickering A LOT and if I hear “can I play electronics” one more time I’m going to lose my mind.

Thankful for this dude who intervened and made them clean rooms and get their shit together so I could finish up work.

We ended the night playing the game of LIFE that included no TP shortages or quarantines.

Wash your hands, wear your mask, social distance, be kind to one another, and survive (physically and economically) to build a better world. ❤️
