Imagine {Day 7}

Who knew it would take a pandemic to finally have an official home gym. It’s bittersweet and to be honest, I’m not a workout-at-home person. Hello – extrovert. But in times like these, we make it work.

Home Gym

Tomorrow we start our temporary normal. I’m going to try to create a schedule for the kids. Wish me luck, and a boatload of patience.

Today was ok. I’m at the frustrated stage. Wondering what it will take for people to understand the seriousness of this situation. Each day in isolation is one more where businesses are dying and people could die.

On a positive note, we watched Yesterday with the kids and all I could think of was this:

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…You..You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

“Imagine” by John Lennon

The Game of LIFE {Day 6}

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.

And So it Begins … {Day 5}

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.
