Diary of a Quarantined Mom: Days 48-51

A three-day weekend was exactly what I needed, and so far this week (all one day of it) has been good. I’m writing this at the start of day 52 and it’s still hard to believe it’s been that long.

Days 48-50 (May 1-3)

Day 48: Pausing our walk so Liam could watch a “beep-beep” (car driving off)

Over the weekend, we spent lots of time outside and I ran a lot. I should have run my fourth marathon on Sunday but it was postponed due to COVID-19 and I deferred my entry to next year. At this point, who knows if it’ll even happen in 2021? But I digress.

Day 48: We drew a rainbow heart

I ran a total of 26.2 miles over the weekend to commemorate what should have been. I’m in a good place with running right now and enjoying it a lot. I’m also trying to make the most of it because my usual cycle is to do really well, get mildly injured, and have to build back up from the beginning. Hoping that all the walking I’m doing will help prevent the injury part this time.

Day 49: Family hike

I also signed up for the Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee, which is 1,000 kilometers from May 1 to August 31. I’m counting running and walking miles since I’m walking a lot more than usual and will be doing so at least for this month, and maybe longer depending on the daycare situation.

Day 49: Spending time outside

Apart from running, there was a lot of playing, and we managed to go for a walk every day (even Sunday when it was forecasted to rain all day and we got caught in a shower on our walk).

Day 41 (May 4)

Monday was a good day. The kids behaved themselves during the day and I got work done. We went for our afternoon walk and got in 2 miles (Rose thought that was a REALLY long way).

The kids have this new “fun” thing they do in the bath where they stand up, count down, and then splash onto their butts and yell loudly. It’s nice to see them playing together and having a good time but I feel like it’s just a matter of time before one of them hurts themselves.

Rose spent some time crawling around the backyard after bunnies last night. She was trying to be so stealthy but the bunnies weren’t having it. Her latest thing is that she wants to catch a bunny and keep it as her pet. We’ve tried telling her that you can’t have a wild rabbit as a pet but she is insistent.

There’s really never a dull moment around here.
