3/20/2020 – Day 5: Exiled for the Good of the Realm

Home / 3/20/2020 – Day 5: Exiled for the Good of the Realm

So… my oldest little locked me out of the house today. Purely accidental (lucky for him), but still. Lucky for me, there’s an app for that.
Week one of working from home with a full house. This definitely hasn’t been ideal, but we all do what we have to, right?
Everything in the country is shutting down, from restaurants to bars to coffee shops to movie theaters. And beyond the madness of being unable to find any TP, or go out to dinner, the only real change for me is that the littles are here to bug me while I work.
Our office is doing a virtual happy hour this afternoon, and I’m a little frustrated that someone drank all the ginger beer. Luckily, my dad sees an opportunity for brownie points, and is off in search of supplies for my Mules right now. Hopefully the crazies haven’t gotten to the soda aisle yet. Fortunately, if they have, I DID stock up on whiskey…
Anyway, I think this weekend I’ll find an infected person and lick their face. Maybe then I can escape my family for a bit.

I'm a working mom with 2 littles: my daughter is 5 and my son is 13. They are my whole life, but I often wonder if they will also be the death of me. We live with their dad and grandpa, and have 2 cats, 2 ferrets, and a gecko.
We're just trying to scrape by in this thing called life, and hopefully provide a few laughs in the meantime.

    Well, at least you were able to get back in the house! Had it been the youngest, it would’ve been on purpose
