So how are we handling things at our house? Honestly, with these 5 simple words:
This is the phrase I keep repeating (mostly in my head), when I need a deep breath.
One day at a time.
This time in our lives is tricky, and so up and down, back and forth. In our house we are all taking turns having little meltdowns. I'm just afraid for the day we all have one at the same time. I have found that if I just take it slow— and even at times hour by hour— then we are having an okay day.
Here is a list of our favorite things and sanity savers from week two, in photos:
Movie Nights. So far we have consumed the first two Lord of the Rings, and the boys LOVE it! We are asking for reccos on some more movie night features if you have any!
Positivity Parades. This is simply just a bunch of friends or family lining up, driving by and honking loudly to cheer a family up! We have done three already and the kids enjoy it as much as I do.
Bingo Wig night. This sounds strange but it was so fun! We played bingo with neighbors, while the dogs wore wigs. Weird quarantine fun.
Spring cleanup. It's officially spring! We made it. It also means we need to start on some outdoor house maintenance and yard work. Our house is no spring chicken anymore (built in 1940), and needs constant upkeep. But we love it. Each year, we fix her up again, and add some seasonal curb appeal.
How are you all doing? I would love to hear from you. Tell me what you are doing as a family to keep your spirits up and have fun together.
Stay home & stay healthy!
