2020 was a rough year. My kids, along with basically the whole world were ripped from their schools and thrown into distance learning. We learned how to distance learn and we still are distance learning as of currently. It hasn’t been easy, but we’re managing.
We did it. We survived. We made it through what some are calling the worst year. We survived a pandemic and everything else this year has brought. Was it really the worst though? Everything out of our control aside, was what you could control the worst? This year was different for all of us becauseContinue reading “A Look Back At 2020”
We all know this year has been rough. We’re in the middle of a what feels like neverending pandemic. Jobs have been lost, schools are closed, businesses are closed, restaurants are closed. Everything is a mess. We try to go about our lives as normal, but this isn’t normal. Among everything that’s happened, our kidsContinue reading “Surviving 2020 The Best They Can”
Inspiration comes from everywhere. Yesterday while talking to a friend on the phone I was inspired to write this. Many of the struggles people face we don’t see. Going through your day suffering through anxiety, depression, grief, etc. You put a smile on your face and people have no idea what you are going through.Continue reading “Keep Going You Got This”
It’s that time of year. Holiday season. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. One holiday after another. Mass amounts of cooking, shopping, and family time. Killing ourselves to make everything perfect. Wrapping endless amounts of presents. Coming up with ideas for the elf on the shelf. Watching our kids light up as the holidays comeContinue reading “Not Feeling Very Holly Jolly”
I was sitting here just reminiscing about the good days. The pre-pandemic days. The repetitive days. Doing the same things day in and day out without even thinking. It was like when you’re driving and suddenly you’re home. You know you drove yourself, but you do it so often you don’t remember the drive itself.Continue reading “I Miss The Pre-Pandemic Days”
When you wake up late it puts you in a bad mood. Then you spill your coffee and someone cuts you off on your way to work. Every little thing that happens will pile up and leave you in a bad mood. It’ll make you stressed out. It doesn’t matter what good happens, it’s stillContinue reading “2020 Grateful Jar”
The first day of school looked so different for us this year. It wasn’t just because of Covid and distance learning, but the fires all around our beautiful state of Oregon. I didn’t want to write about them because I didn’t want anyone thinking I was using that to get views, but that’s the realityContinue reading “The First Day Of School Looked Different This Year”
I was talking on the phone last night with an amazing friend. We haven’t talked for a while so we were catching up on all the happenings in our lives over the last few months. She said something that really got me thinking. I need to put myself in a timeout.
I myself have been vocal about distance learning and how much I wasn’t a fan. It wasn’t the worst thing to happen, but not something we were equipped for. If I wanted to teach my kids from home I would homeschool. I understand that it was the only option with what was happening and theContinue reading “Distance Learning Love It Or Hate It Set A Good Example”
