Diary of a Quarantined Mom: Day 11

Today started good and ended good, but there was some not-so-good stuff in the middle. Day 11 (March 26) I got up early to get a run in outside before hubby left for work. It was nice to be outside and get some exercise in while it was quiet. Once I was showered and logged … Continue reading

Today started out well. I ran 4 miles on the treadmill while watching This is Us. Then I got a quiet shower and drank some quiet coffee while the kids were still asleep. Rose got up around 8. I remembered something as I was getting Rose a drink and some cereal. Cat from a year … Continue reading

Like a whole bunch of people all over the world, I am trying to work from home while also trying to keep two small kids occupied without losing my mind. I thought it would be fun to share my experience in the hopes that it might provide a laugh to someone who needs one, or … Continue reading
