Still living the pandemic life
You know what, we actually DO NOT.
We go every darn morning when the place is almost empty and we see the same families, and that is basically all we do because GLOBAL PANDEMIC. We do not go evenings or weekends because I'd rather be around the stay-at-home/work-from-home crowd.
We get pizza every 10 days or so. I got 3/4 of the kids Culvers through the app one dday. The boys all play modified baseball (no games; running to cones to stay 6 feet away from the basemen; no catchers; lots of practice drills; masks and 10 feet between players except for the 6-foot base-running). This is Jack's final week of dive practice. Harry has been seeing 3 neighborhood friends whose parents are hardcore like us, but we are making him take a break before the baby.
We still don't go inside any stores. We do not eat at restaurants (even outside). I pick up my library books curbside even though you can technically go in.
We go for lots of walks.
It's pretty cozy, if I am being honest, but the kids are getting sick of each other.
We are thinking of investing in some cross-country ski gear for winter, and we are finishing the rest of the unfinished part of our basement to make an office with a comfy desk and chair for an adult, and a counter-height desk with stools for the kids, plus a TV and pull-out couch. This is a lot to cram in what will ultimately be a small room, but we are excited for more workspace. I wish we had thought of this/realized the need for it in APRIL, but we hope it will be finished before the first quarter of virtual school is over.
I feel like we are much more locked down than most people we know, but, you know, BABY.
What about you? Still living the pandemic life, or have you loosened up?
