3/23/2020 – Day 8: Exiled for the Good of the Realm

Home / 3/23/2020 – Day 8: Exiled for the Good of the Realm

To be honest, I’ve found it very difficult to write over the last few days. Exile is starting to take it’s toll on me. I really don’t mind being mostly confined to my home – I’m probably 90% hermit anyway. What is difficult, is that I’ve found myself working full-time from home, still doing all the normal “mom” stuff (cooking, cleaning, laundry, kids’ baths, etc), and now I have to basically play at “teaching” both preschool and 8th grade on top of it all. I spend close to an hour each day just preparing enough activities to keep the littles occupied for PART of my work day. In all seriousness, I’m ready to just throw in the towel on all of it.
Most people are practicing social distancing, while I am actively looking for someone who has tested positive so I can lick their face.
Hopefully, I can find my sense of humor again by tomorrow.

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.

    AS PART OF YOUR DAILY ROUTINE, DID YOU LEAVE OFF “CHOKING”? AND WHY IS THIS ALL CAPS?
