I have shared in the past posts covering random topics and I get so much great feedback every time. This time the focus is a little more personal. I am sharing five things that all relate to COVID-19 and the current climate in the country.
Current COVID-19 Feelings: I haven’t talked a ton about my COVID-19 feelings here. It’s definitely been a challenge. Not so much for me, or Andrew, but watching my 3-year-old not understand what’s happening. Seeing him not be able to go to school the past six months, see friends, see grandparents, and go places he loves like the grocery store. Recently, Daniel Tiger released an episode which was super helpful, but still seeing the disappointment in his face has been the hardest. Listen, I can do stay-at-home forever. Give me all the delivery, Netflix, etc. I am totally fine. But goodness, seeing kids suffer is hard. He is going back to school on September 8th and it is not a decision we came to lightly. But, it is what is best for HIM.
The holiday season: Speaking of, only recently did I think about the holiday season and COVID-19. It makes me so sad to think I won’t have a picture of my kids with Santa this year. I realize this is SUCH a champagne problem but ugh just another thing to miss this year. Other than that, I have actually been making lists of all the special things we can do this year to keep the holidays as normal as possible and I am getting excited. I can’t wait to post about what we are doing instead of trick-or-treating!
Curbside pickup: I think honestly, the addition of being able to do curbside pickup everywhere has been amazing. We don’t take our kids inside ANYWHERE and being able to run errands with them and still get things done without going inside is huge for us. Let’s keep wine curbside pickup forever.
Feeling stretched too thin: I have felt so very stretched thin lately. Between commitments with organizations, making sure my work gets done, my family life, etc I have felt very stretched. I know I probably overcommit but I have just felt beyond exhausted lately. Not wanting to overly complain but anyone else feeling this way?
Election: I will say it now and I will say it as many times as I need to: VOTE. I am sure everyone has their mind made up and I am not trying to change anyone’s mind. We are voting for Joe Biden. I think he will be a wonderful President. I think voting is important for every single office in every single election. Do your research and be kind.
I do not share a ton of personal stuff because I respect the privacy of those in my life but I felt like these things were important to share and just things on my heart.
How are you feeling lately?
