Life lately…. has been interesting right? I wanted to do a post documenting the entire last few weeks, but emotionally I just can’t. I will say that every morning for just a few seconds it’s peace before I realize that it’s still the same world as yesterday and nothing is normal. It’s not a dream, it’s our reality.
I am now on day 8 (ish) of the kids being out of school. While I have still been making the occasional trip to the office, I am almost completely working from home until things are back to normal. Monday of this week we learned that the kids school year is over. It’s been heartbreaking. Our trip to Cooperstown this summer has also been canceled. Our life looks nothing like it did a few short weeks ago. Our kids last real interaction with the outside world was March 15th. Since then it’s either been in our home, playing in our yard (without friends) or taking a neighborhood walk. My big moment of each week is braving a trip to the grocery store where I often find empty shelves.
Just writing this post is not easy. What do you say, how do you move forward? It has been easier on Instagram and Youtube. Instagram is where each day I share the photos of what our life now looks like, it’s my favorite part of the evening looking back on what I have captured throughout the day. On Youtube I have gone back to basics. I am not in the mood to give tips or share “things” right now…. maybe soon, but not yet. So I have been just sharing what life looks like. How I am adjusting. But here…. words are harder. Let’s face it the blog has never been my strong platform, but these words are even harder.
So the plan. Y’all know I love a good plan. This is what Happily A Housewife is going to look like for now.
Youtube — Vlogs for now, honestly it’s all I have brain capacity for! As far as an upload schedule, I am not sure. It will still be 4 times a week, but days/times are up in the air. The hope is Monday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday?
Blog — I would love to stick to my Wednesday / Friday Schedule. That would be amazing!
Instagram — Each day I am sharing what our day looks like. If you don’t already follow along there, that is where I would say you will enjoy the most. @happilyahousewife
Right now I am not sharing outfits but it will come back I promise.
Moving forward into the next days/weeks we are just taking it a day at a time. Our kids are done with school for the year (we are still waiting to hear what the heck that means as far as virtual learning). So I am homeshooling the best I can. I am also continuing to work from home, while Matt is split (when he can he is home). We are doing our part to help flatten the curve and realize staying home is best. We are all healthy so far, which is the biggest blessing. We are looking ahead to days of girl scout camp, baseball games, and I swear I will never complain about carpooling my kids again!
