Day 14 – Still the uncertainty

It’s Saturday. It’s 10:35 a.m. I slept until after 8… a luxury for me. I feel as though I’m supposed to be doing something, I must be forgetting something. Well, I am supposed to be doing something. I am supposed to be volunteering at my son’s Fine Arts Festival, and then watching him perform in the Jazz Band and the 7th Grade Band. Nope. Not this year. I feel out of sorts. I’m disappointed for my son and all the other students in the district who don’t get to show off their amazing skills they’ve worked so hard on all year. So I Slice.

My mind wanders, though. I check Facebook. Again. I seriously need to stop. Every time I do, I think, “Maybe I should go to the store.” My stomach flips. No. We’re fine. We will be fine. I did not panic shop, I will not panic shop. Things will be better next week, and we have enough of everything to last beyond that.

We are spending time with friends this afternoon. It is after all, St. Patrick’s Day weekend. The local parade was cancelled, but the local bars are still holding their festivities. We are going. Am I nervous? Maybe just a bit. I don’t want to become a hermit, though. We have been planning this for a month. Nervous? Yeah, but a green beer should take care of that!

  1. We have been out this weekend and will continue to tomorrow. My kids were the only ones at their sports’ classes but enjoyed the open gym and we’re going out to dinner tonight to celebrate a birthday. I have to be in for the next three weeks… what’s another two days?!


  2. I’m glad you are going out and surrounding yourself with some cheer. This social distancing is a challenge for sure. I’m sorry about your son’s cancellation of the festival. These are moments lost and it’s hard.


  3. I really hope the sick people will stay home. Then everyone will be fine, Right? I always over shop so we always have extra in our house. I don’t need to panic shop. I keep repeating that to myself! But I bought laundry detergent today that I didn’t need. It was like an itch I had to scratch! I use all sort of natural cleaners but I went and bought some Lysol anyway. It’s funny how our brains act in a crisis.


  4. I think it’s a good idea to stay home as much as possible. Today should have been my daughter’s state gymnastics meet and she was trained to perform so well. It’s sad for her and me, but I know it’s the right thing.
