My children live in a blanket fort city that has fully taken over the library.
It seems pretty magical, really. The kids have taken to e-learning well but they miss their friends. We’re all looking at a lot more screens than usual, and there was snow to play in today. We do have a couple of birthdays to celebrate soon and we’re trying to figure out how to make them feel special.
I was sick for a while and I haven’t left my property since March 13, but my Animal Crossing home and island look amazing! It has been a perfectly timed distraction and escape.
I do not know what I had. The cough and tightness in my chest lingers still, but thankfully I recovered with rest and my family is well. I’m getting the hang of Zoom meetings for existing clients, and any new design projects are being added to a waitlist or we’re doing e-design.
I know a lot of people are GETTING! THINGS! DONE! Not I. This period of low productivity has been disappointing, even though I know it was necessary for both physical and mental health. Still, it’s nice to be coming up on the other side of it. I started a list of all the little tasks I could do around the house with supplies we have on hand, and it grew to a surprising length! I always feel best when I have a project (or 10) to work on; time to busy myself.
