When The World Isn’t Quite Right

I’m sitting here in my office (hiding), and thinking about how crazy the world is right now.

In fact, I keep trying to explain to my children that this has never happened in mommy’s life and it will hopefully never happen again. They don’t seem to understand the severity of it and Sawyer keeps reminding me that last year we had the Polar Vortex and he missed a whole week of school.

Which was also awful FYI. We couldn’t leave the house then either because our eyelids would freeze shut but at least there was toilet paper available and no one was threatening to shut our liquor stores down.

I don’t think he understands that he may not go back to 1st grade and his older brother may not go back to therapy this year. How could he understand? Honestly, I’m 36 and I don’t really understand.

You and I, we have no control over this. Zero.

Today, was the first day I didn’t watch the news. Although I did love seeing inside the newscaster’s homes. Seeing Al Roker in his kitchen was pretty great. This break is a big deal for me as self-proclaimed news junkie. I had to take a break though. A breather.

It was just getting to heavy. Too end-of-days. I’d rather stay in my little house, arguing with my children about snacks and listening to my husband rant and rave about how dirty we all are, than watch the insanity happen.

This is going to pass. You know that. And I know that. In a few weeks or months, eventually, we will sit around the dinner table or be at a bar with friends and reminisce about the social distancing.

This will all be a story for our grandkids. Right? That’s what I hope. We will laugh about trying to teach our kids and how the shelves had no toilet paper. Our grandkids probably will never believe it.

We just have to hang on. I know so many of my friends are struggling. I know people are scared and worried and we should be. This is very serious.

But we will make it through this. We just have to hang on. And follow the rules and make good choices.

And stay positive. We have to stay positive for our kids and for our neighbors. It’s imperative that we do.
