Lorrie, in a comment yesterday, mentioned that she was finding it hard to be motivated. I totally understood.
It seems crazy because we are home full time right now, at least most of us, and we have lots of time on our hands! We should be doing all the things we talk about doing if we had the time....
However, we are in an unprecedented time in history. I can think of no other time when the whole world was taking similar measures to combat something, except perhaps during the Spanish Flu.
All around the world friends are at home, whether they are in Australia, or the UK, or Africa.
I think it's okay to what you need to do each day. If it's being highly productive, then do it! If it's watching a movie, on the couch, or reading a book, or sitting in your garden, then do it!
There is no shame in feeling vulnerable and being concerned for the future. This doesn't mean we are letting fear control us, it means we are human.
Yesterday, I did school with Kyle (which is mostly overseeing him working independently), watched a movie with Rachel, and reorganized this bookcase. I felt very accomplished.
I'm also going to read a new book I bought recently, supervise school, and make dinner.
Today is rainy again. Yesterday, it rained too, and the sun didn't peak out until I was in the middle of cooking dinner, so I didn't get outside to sit in the sunshine. If you have sunshine where you are, take advantage of it! It's good for our mental health!
I hope you are all well. I read this morning that Prince Charles has the coronavirus but the Duchess of Cornwall does not. He seems very healthy and I'm sure he'll come through it just fine. The issue will be weather or not the Queen has been exposed. At nearly 94 she is in a risk category, but she seems to be very healthy overall too.
I'm praying for all those who are working in the medical field, those who are sick, and those who are well. We might be self quarantined but nothing can stop prayer!
