Day 1: We came home from our cruise yesterday...I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation. Due to the Corona Virus pandemic all cities around the world are placing self quarantines into place and closing schools, restaurants, events, stores. Quite frankly it is all a bit scary. I am working from home right now. Bennett is not able to return to school until after April 10th. So until then...we remote work and remote learn. He is handling it all well so far. I try to make sure that he gets up, dresses, and treats each day as though he is going to school, we can't afford for him to fall behind. It's difficult...being an in home educator, working for the law firm remotely, being a wife, cooking, cleaning, laundry. Luckily God has blessed me with the worlds most well behaved child on the planet. :) Until tomorrow...
Day 2: Same as yesterday, but we incorporated a little muffin baking action! I can tell he is getting annoyed with staying home all day, but I’m tied to my work laptop, and going out isn’t an option anyways since I’m self quarantining.
Another day at home with my little love...another morning of working remotely, helping Bennett remote learn, and do a little art for his buddy Gordon over at NASA. Next week things should get interesting, CyFair ISD is having the children remote learn, logging in, logging minutes on activities, so I will have to juggle that, working from home, keeping house, running the charity...I'd like to think I'm super mom, but I'm NOT. Luckily Randy is giving me a girls night in tomorrow...so at least I will get to let off a little steam before the week of hell begins. hah!
Day 27: Man I missed a few days of entries... it’s been a bit of a crazy house over here. Working with Bennett on school work and juggling working remotely for the law firm is proving to be more than I bargained for, and I can tell the stress of being in top of each other and with each other nonstop for a continuous month is taking its toll. We still have another 20 days of this. Lord give us strength, they are beginning to grade the students next month, so I will be having to really stay on top of him to pay attention and get his work done. It’s a challenge and I get a reality check into his daily life and see how complicated learning truly is for him with all of his disabilities. It’s frustrating and saddening, scary yet beautiful. I really can’t explain it, but I’m grateful beyond anything that we all are still home and healthy. I will update more next week, tomorrow is Easter, everyone have a blessed day!
Easter in Quarantine:
We had a wonderful Easter Sunday. The Easter Bunny left a basket and eggs hidden around the house for Bennett and we got to attend church online. We rounded out our day with a bike ride and camp out in the backyard! Week 5 of Quarantine Starts tomorrow.
April 27, 2020
I’ve honestly lost track of what day this is in quarantine. Bennett’s school is closed the rest of the school year. I’m waiting to find out when I have to go back to the office, but for now we are still working from home. The city put out a 30 day mandatory mask in public that begins tomorrow....this all seems like a bad dream. I’ve put on 15 pounds since being home. Eating, Cooking, the depression has really taken over. I’ll be glad once we are able to get out again.
