.... or whatever you want to call it, but we are all doing it and feeling it.
I wanted to blog to take my mind off the chaos but couldn't think of what to blog about (my mind is all over the place). I was reading a post (https://everydayeyecandy.com/stream-of-consciousness-sunday-15-days/) from my fellow blogger, LaShawn Wiltz, and decided to give it a try. I think we all need a moment during this time to just vent, so here goes nothing....
4 weeks of quarantine life......
4 weeks of being in the house with a hormonal teenager, a lazy teenager, and a pre-teen that ask for money for the game every 5 minutes.
4 weeks of going through every mood possible.... from being motivated, to tears from loneliness, to wanting to sleep all day, to "I hate it here", to being scared, to being content ...... name it, I've experienced it.
4 weeks of wondering what the next 4 weeks will bring. Will we still be in this house in June?
4 weeks of trying to figure out this homeschool life, like everyone else. I think I just got to the point of letting them figure it out on their own. #BadMom
4 weeks of being thankful that I don't have to drive 2 hours to and from work/school 5 days a week. It's saving money in gas, but the kids are eating it all up. I kind of miss those long drives home where I could just listen to music and decompress (the kids slept the whole ride home).
It has been a long 4 weeks, but I am trying to make the best of them. I keep reminding myself that I am not the only one going through if not all, some of the things I noted above. I remind myself that some of the things I listed are selfish, because others are going through the pain of the main subject of our quarantine. I remind myself that this is all in God's timing and we need to relax into our new normal. Storms don't last always. Let's enjoy the time, enjoy the beauty of getting to know ourselves.
One last thing.... STAY HOME!!! I don't want to write this again in 4 more weeks, because you all don't listen. Peace and Blessings!
This was my 5 minute Stream of Consciousness post. It’s five minutes of your time and a brain dump. Want to try it? Here are the rules…
Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.
Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. This is writing in the raw.
Publish it somewhere. Anywhere. The back door to your blog if you want. But make it accessible.
