A Mom and her kid being Socially Distant – Day 21-23

And so it continues. The social distant life is still going on, and I don’t expect it will end any time soon. We are doing okay. I think that my son is a hero. He’s great. He knows the world is different, and he knows the germs are stopping us from doing things, but that’s not stopping him from loving life. He is happy. I hope his memories from this time are happiness, and a gratitude he doesn’t yet understand.

I now know three people that have (or are waiting for results) Covid_19. It’s getting more real. My partner has one more week in isolation, but so far he’s feeling healthy (and bored.)

I don’t know that I’ve had a good sleep in days. I go to sleep fine, but I’m always waking up, and my thoughts are always on what’s happening in the world. Sometimes I have bad dreams, other times I just lay there with my eyes open and my brain on, and other times my son wakes up. I’m tired.

Monday – Day 21

There was too much snow to use the chalk on the sidewalk. I made a sign.

Tuesday – Day 22

Wednesday – Day 23

I’m not a clean and organized person. It takes me a while to get my crap together. Today, I reached that point. Anthony and I cleaned and reorganized two rooms together. It felt really good. Anthony played really well on his own today which made me pretty happy. I love when he’s independent, but we are still working on the stubborn kid listening to what I ask of him.

That’s it for now. I’m still waiting for the weather to improve so we can spend more time outside. We are happier outside. It was cold and windy out today. I’m hoping as the week continues we can cross more rooms to clean off my list. I have made it three days getting dressed (instead of having PJ days), and sometimes even putting on lipstick. I’m also trying to wear clothes from local companies every day.

Happy Social Distancing.
