In a matter of days life went from its not a big deal to there's no more toilet paper ANYWHERE! As of now personally I am on day 4 of quarantine with my family ( Max & Torii ).
Here is a Summary of the last few days be sure to leave a comment below on how your doing and share out blog post!
Over these 4 days we have made a semi plan on how we will be handling this time at home. Torii has to continue school so we have to home school. I was unfortunately laid off but max for the time being is still working.
The first day I tried some Pinterest like schedules and that failed! So I "shopped" around for something for fitting for me. Soon max and I realized we did not have a Stay at home supply. This by no means is a end of the world stock. Stores will remain open so we wanted to have a 2 weeks worth of groceries and hygiene products. We went to the store (Target & Ralphs ) and did a haul of realistic items we would actually eat and use, snacks included.
Second day I woke up super late no sense of direction. All we did was EAT and lay in bed watching tv. Definitely not what I want to be doing everyday but it felt nice to really just bum out and not watch the news or read anything. I found a schedule like structure I liked and began to plan for the following day.
Day three I set an alarm to wake up at 8:05 I love having :05 alarms I don't know why but it works for me. I bummed in bed and cuddled little then got up to make breakfast. Torii started her day by reading a book and Writing a letter thanks to my buddy The Designing Chica and her schedule she shared on her page.We went through the motions of school but to our pace and our day went by quickly and fun with activities in between. Honestly have a structured day really helped not eat all day.
Day 4 We had a very similar routine and I must say we very much enjoyed it. Personally we are taking this time to be a family and do things we don't get to do. We have every meal together, Play boardgames, watch youtube, and be on tiktok scrolling mindlessly. I cook breakfast, lunch , and dinner that for me helps me because thats something I can control in these scary times Max and I can control how our day is spent and what we are taking in from the outside world routine and structure help our family cope.
I would love to know how you and your family are doing.
