Self Quarantine Day 36: Who We Are

I’ve gotten a lot of new followers here on the blog in the past month and The Hubs revamped my site so I thought it would be a good idea to introduce our tribe again. For you long time readers, you’ll get all up to date on us too. Our family is a little wackyContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 36: Who We Are”

Self Quarantine Log Day 26: Washing Away Stress

Being a working Mom takes up almost every waking moment. If I’m not at work I’m thinking about work. If I’m not at work or thinking about work I’m taking care of my kids or thinking about them. Sometimes I’m doing it all at once. Working from home since the quarantine started has largely eliminatedContinue reading “Self Quarantine Log Day 26: Washing Away Stress”

Self Quarantine Log Day 24: Let’s Hear It For The Boy

8 years ago I was in college and trying to decide what to do with my life. I was busy planning my 21st birthday party and hanging out with friends. Little did I know that mere minutes away from my home a momentous event was happening that would forever change my life. 8 years agoContinue reading “Self Quarantine Log Day 24: Let’s Hear It For The Boy”

Self Quarantine Day 13: The Kids Are Alright?

We like to think that our big kids are unfazed by this pandemic but the reality is showing up in their behavior. My son, a normally anxious kid to begin with had a moment today. We were all outside and he’d just gotten fussed at twice for talking back and then had a run inContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 13: The Kids Are Alright?”

Self Quarantine Day 9: Crazy Choices After Midnight

I think I’m going a little loopy. I’m chalking it up to lack of social interaction. I’m an extreme extrovert apparently. Not talking to humans in the flesh is crappy. All phone and no face to face makes Diana a dreary girl. (Don’t worry, I don’t think we have an axe and there’s definitely noContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 9: Crazy Choices After Midnight”

Self Quarantine Day 4: Venturing Out

We’ve all gotten very emotional. The reality of the situation is really sinking in and this extrovert is missing interacting with adults. The Hubs is here and wonderful but he’s still working (thank God) so it’s mostly me and the twins with the exception of work calls. The Twins are tired of each other. WeContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 4: Venturing Out”

Self Quarantine Log Day 3: Veggie Fatigue, Hell Cats, and Important Calls

Today was the hardest day by far. The girls are tired of each other and I’m just plain tired. I’m not cut out to work from home while watching two toddlers. They’re not great at spending all day sharing Mommy with each other and her work. The entire family has had enough of my healthyContinue reading “Self Quarantine Log Day 3: Veggie Fatigue, Hell Cats, and Important Calls”

Self Quarantine Log Day 2: 5 Lessons Learned

Jesus it’s only been two days but it feels like eternity. Technically I haven’t worked in-office since Friday and had the day off Monday so maybe that’s what is making it feel like longer. Today didn’t run as smoothly as our day did yesterday. There were plenty of lessons learned but here are my topContinue reading “Self Quarantine Log Day 2: 5 Lessons Learned”

Self Quarantine Log Day 1

We’re wrapping up Day 1 of Corona Daycare here in the Mom Van. So far we’re virus free and still sane (at least as sane as we’ll ever be). I’m blessed to be able to work from home but I’ve also got the Twins with me. I’ve decided to log daily and hopefully share someContinue reading “Self Quarantine Log Day 1”

What Being A Mom Looks Like

My husband took a picture of me the other day that I feel really sums up the stage of Motherhood that I’m in right now. The stage when your children are so attached to you that even peeing by yourself is a sin in their eyes. The picture, however unconventional, has quickly become one ofContinue reading “What Being A Mom Looks Like”
