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 Day 15: Our Perfect Day

We had all four kiddos home again today and somehow it all worked out smoothly. It was a perfect day. I was able to get work done. I even got some cleaning done between work and dinner. We spent most of the day outside. The kids played, The Hubs tore up more of the yard,Continue reading “Self Quarantine Day 15: Our Perfect Day”

Self Quarantine Day 12: Escape

The Hubs and I ventured out today. We’re trying to do as little of this as possible but his project to fix the drainage in the yard has gotten out of hand and we needed groceries. His Mom watched the kids for us so that we wouldn’t expose them to anyone else. Between The BoyContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 12: Escape”

Self Quarantine Day 11: Quarantine Food

I definitely saw the food situation going differently when the topic of social distancing and self quarantining first started getting tossed around here. I had visions of home cooked meals every night and tasty, healthy lunches every day. The reality has been vastly different. For starters, The Hubs has been working late a lot soContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 11: Quarantine Food”

Self Quarantine Day 10: Best Part of the Day

Back when I was in high school my Mom decided that we were going to try and eat dinner as a family. Not long after we realized that dinner conversation tended towards the negative. At some point she decided that she’d had enough and “best part of the day” was born. We do it atContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 10: Best Part of the Day”

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 8: Woooh Buddy!

Alright so today is a big anniversary date in our family. It’s a bitter sweet and emotional day for me. Today makes two years since we brought The Conqueror home from the NICU but it also makes two years since my Pop left this world behind. Pop was a great man and we all missContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 8: Woooh Buddy!”

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 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”
