Diary of a Quarantined Mom: Day 5

Today, my hubby is home from work, which means I have someone to help distract the little monkeys while I work.

While eating breakfast, we pretended that we were at a restaurant. Rose named it “Rose’s” and said it was her favorite restaurant. I was the chef (naturally) and she was my chef helper. Yesterday, she helped me make pizza dough for our dinner and now she wants to make it every day.

Day 5: Happy and sad

I’m not sure why, but I feel more anxious today than I have so far this week. I think it’s because while I’m working and have the kids at home I’m busy and distracted. The weekend is coming and it’s going to be a challenge to fill it with things when we can’t go anywhere. I had a good idea that we could put the kids in the bike trailer and go for a ride, but it’s going to be too cold tomorrow.

I’m mostly doing okay taking things one day at a time, but it seems like everything is in limbo right now. There’s no knowing how long this will last and when things will get back to some semblance of normalcy.

I expected Mike DeWine to close daycares at his press conference this afternoon but there wasn’t a mention of that. So now, to add to the stress of the current situation, I have to decide whether to pay next week to keep the kids’ places even though I won’t be sending them. It’s uncertainty like this that is getting to me right now.

Luckily, hubby went to the grocery store and got almost everything we need. He also stopped at the liquor store for my favorite beer, so I will be logging off now to enjoy that.

Other positives: I got a nice 3.5-mile run in when it was 67 degrees, and then we all walked 2.5 miles as a family before dinner. If nothing else, I’m getting a lot more walking in than usual, which is a nice perk of being stuck at home.
