Weekend Guide, March 20-22

Hello weekend! Although…now every day seems like a cross between Monday and Saturday. We’re technically on spring break this week, but for many with children in the public school system, virtual and online learning has started. Parents are overwhelmed. Teachers are trying their best at guidance. Technology has glitches. Some say, just play, kids learn best out of the classroom. Teach them life skills, like baking and age appropriate chores. There’s SO MUCH information out there. Nearly every zoo and museum in the world is offering virtual tours or live streaming. There’s a limitless amount of crafts and science experiments to try…

It’s unprecedented times we are living in. I am used to seeing my 85 year old grandma at least once a week. She has a standing playdate with my kids from 3-5 pm one night a week. She comes over and free plays, or gardens with them, or bakes with them. I miss her. My kids miss her. I called her this week and asked her if she’s lived through anything like this where the world shut down. She said, not that she can recall. So, if you are feeling overwhelmed, you are not alone. We are all navigating these new uncharted waters together, and together we will arrive on the other side. 

And to all this I say, breathe. I said it in my Monday e-newsletter, and I will continue to say it, because it’s something I remind myself daily. When I feel the overwhelm creeping in, when I feel the uncertainty settling in, when I feel unsure of the next move…I stop and breathe. Please breathe with me (from your house or at least 6 feet away 😉 )

But I was also reading the other night at came across the quote, 

Life is but a dream, don’t turn it into a nightmare.” ~ Jen Sincero
