Self Quarantine Day 7: Takin Care of Business

I managed to get an uninterrupted day of work in today and it was glorious. My mother-in-law watched the Twins so I could get some work done. I even got to go up to work and rescue my desk plants before they died of neglect. The girls got to play all day. The Hubs workedContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 7: Takin Care of Business”

Self Quarantine Days 5 & 6: Silver Linings & Quarantine Dates

Since I didn’t have work this weekend I tried to pretend that everything was normal. I failed a bit.

Making Progress

This week is going by in a flash and stretching out over an eternity in nauseating back and forth fashion. I’ve woken up every day this week thinking that it was Thursday. At least today I got it right. Im still stressed but I’m making progress. A couple of months ago my husband mentioned thatContinue reading “Making Progress”

Confession Time: I’m Not Okay

I started going to a therapist on Friday. It turns out burning the candle at both ends and constantly trying to convince yourself that everything is fine can be mentally and emotionally taxing. Who would’ve thought? It feels a little weird writing about this. I committed to honesty when I started this blog and tellingContinue reading “Confession Time: I’m Not Okay”
