Lately I haven't been feel very motivated to blog. Every day pretty much feels like the last.. so not much to inspire me to write.
The kids have been going back to school. They go four days a week.. mornings only. Meaning they are back home for lunch and then log in for virtual learnings in the afternoon. Those few hours in the morning of them gone is doing us all a lot of good.
Have you heard of diamond painting? The boys just finished their recent puzzles and they were looking for a change. So I bought one on Amazon to work on together. Their excitement didn't last long.. I think they find it too monotonous.. so now I do a few minutes everyday while I sip my afternoon coffee. I find it relaxing.
We finally got around to finishing up M's office space. It was originally meant to be a formal dining room. We are really not formal dining room people. We redid it the first time in 2015.. you can see it here. We had fixed it up all by ourselves and were very proud of the first version you see above.
This time we hired someone to paint it. We bought shelves from RiverCity Reclaimed on Etsy and M installed those himself. We kept a lot of it the same.. just gave it a refresh.
Same time last year was our last normal week. On March 13 the lockdown was announced. Our spring break was planned for early April and we had actually thought we were going to be able to go. Spring break is just around the corner again and while we would all love to hope on a plane and fly away somewhere, we can't.. well we can, but we won't. We will take a break though.. rent a house somewhere that is not here. Somewhere we can drive too.. somewhere off season so there aren't too many people..
