Show Yourself Some Grace

Remember when we thought 2020 was going to be our year?

My Post (3)

I am currently sitting in the bed listening to The Summer House by Jenny Hale. I just hung up the phone with my oldest son’s teacher. She called to let me know she emailed me the link for their distant learning which begins next Monday, March 23rd. Immediately my mind drifted to: how are we going to juggle this? I am online student so during the day, I need my computer. My husband is now doing distance learning for his school. Okay, we need a schedule or something. It’s the moments like this, that exhaust me. I just want ONE DAY where I’m not worrying about something, not trying to figure out something.

Yesterday was when we got the notification that school being out was extended through April 3rd. I started freaking out: we need more snacks, we need more snacks! The kids will be home all day. After days of being in the house, I got in my car to drive to Dollar General. I felt bad. I felt like I was breaking some kind of rule-but what do you do when you simply need to run to the store for a few things you need? Right now my worry is about next school year. No one has said it, but I think here in Texas, the school year is over. I’m in that weird state of worrying about the unknown.

I know this is a weird time for all of us, but I hope that amidst all of the craziness, you find the time to show yourself some grace. That is exactly what I’m doing today and tomorrow-full self-care mode! I need to get my mind right the best way I know how..basically reading romances, watching Hallmark, drinking wine and journaling! Be nice to yourselves Babes. Use this time to catch up on that Podcast you haven’t had the chance to listen to. Put it on while you’re making dinner or folding laundry. Rewatch an old favorite movie.  Find a favorite childhood show. Last night I introduced my kids to Lion King 1 1/2 and they loved it! I forgot how hilarious it is. Besides that, we have had quite the Connect Four tournaments going on.

I hope you are taking care of yourselves. Show yourself some Grace-I’m only a message away if you need to chat.

xx.

  1. Thank you for this very human and important message. We could all use a little break right now, and we should start by giving ourselves more credit for coping in an unprecedented situation. Good luck with your boys and I wish you well!

  2. Thanks for sharing this love! It’s been such a difficult time for us. Baby girl and I are with my parents so I had to pull her out of daycaare for the time being. I’m hoping that she’ll have a spot when we go back, but that’s hard to tell with this thing becoming more and more out of control. I would be a liar if I didn’t say how scared I am. I don’t know what our new normal is going to look like. But I’m reminding myself to take it easy. I’m not pressuring myself to upload to YouTube or anything. I just want to enjoy my family as much as I can.
