This has been a strange few weeks, I’ll tell you. We went from being very excited that we all had a week of Spring Break off together, to being thrown into this crazy world where no one knows what’s happening. It’s been raining every time I plan an outing, too, so there’s that. And by outing, I mean the social distancing kind – a hiking trail or even a walk around the block.
Asher is not pleased to be so cooped up in the house. He wants to go out in the 60-degree weather and play with his water table. He wants to chalk up the sidewalk in the rain. He does not know why Mom is such a kill-joy and won’t let him.
Also, I officially have THE WORST luck with Student Teaching. We won’t know fully until tomorrow, but it’s looking like they (maybe?) have some band-aid solutions for us. Brian is able to work. We were planning on me not working until September. Probably we’ll be okay.
That being said, I know a lot of people are cooped up at home with no income or massive insecurity. My favorite thing for hard times is escaping into a book. In the spirit of helping, Blue Gentian is free starting tomorrow until the 24th. That’s as long as I could do it and still remain a member of KDP.
Also, if you’ve ever wanted to write a novel yourself, April is Camp Nanowrimo. You have time and a story inside you, what have you got to lose?
