8 Weeks and counting
Tuesday, May 12, 2020
We are just over 8 weeks into our Stay at Home order from the state. I am working from home but 2 of my adult children are going into work everyday. My DS does not live in the same state so it is not too bad because he is not close anyway but he always comes for holidays and such and I have only been able to talk to him on the phone. Because my DDs job requires her to interact with lots of people she won't come over until she feels it is safe. They have dropped by and stayed a safe distance so I get to see her, my SIL and my GD but we can't hug and we can't really sit, enjoy a meal and chat together. They came by for Mother's Day and brought me lunch from one of my favorite restaurants along with a little cake. My SIL cleared some weed trees for me and we talked a bit. I loved it but I do miss them, especially my GD. I video chat with her and she made me a card but no weekends with grandma for awhile.
I don't mean to pout, this isn't too bad and I am doing fine. I still have my job and am working, I am healthy and so is my family so I feel very blessed. I do miss my office and going to work every day. I feel like I miss the routine and am eating way too much.
My dog is delighted however and we take nice long walks 2 or 3 times a day now. Before we got a quick one in before work and then a long one in the evening. I don't know how she will adjust when I go back!
