I know I’ve been slacking on the blog. I promise I will try and do better. I do have a bunch of ideals and titles written down I just haven’t gotten to writing them. You would think the whole covid-19 pandemic and the social isolation going on I would’ve worked more on this little project of mine.
I figured I’d give a little update on what’s been going on my end. I’ve been busy studying a lot with school. It’s been a lot on plate learning all this new and interesting stuff. I have been working out at home and at the gym when I was school and studying hard. I also won’t lie, I was totally catching up on all the Netflix shows I could in between studying. Now, with the Covid-19 virus I’ve been back home in my little town. Studies are on-line at the moment and I’ve been working hard to keep on top of it all. I’ve also been trying to make sure the kids are still learning things. I bought a bunch of Dollarama books last summer for French and Mathematics. They’ve been doing a few of the pages out of each book. I will be working on their reading in the up coming week as well.
I am basically a house wife at the moment as my husband still works. I cannot work since I have to be at home with my children. No school means no daycare. I am finding hard to transition( there’s nothing wrong with being a stay at home mom). I love my children very much but, I am very much a workaholic. I love being at work, it’s the only time I love being around adults. I am very much the type of person that likes her alone time and I am now at home 24/7 around people all the time. Despite me having a hard time transitioning and not having a lot of alone time I have been very grateful for it. I get to spend time with the people I love most. I have gotten to see all the changes my children have made since I left for college. The change in their shows, hobbies, taste of food and their behaviours. They have been extremely helpful around the house and with my dad when they spend time with him when I am away. They are getting bigger, smarter and kinder everyday.
My oldest has taken this time to go through all his toys and my youngest well he’s definitely been enjoying t.v. time. Although, I make sure they don’t watch a ton of it they definitely get to watch more the usual. We’ve went through all their clothes and managed to get rid of 2 big gift bags ( you know reuse, reduce, recycle) that I am planning on giving away to a family in need. I will be repotting our mother-in-law ( snake) plant this week. My hubby has done a good job taking care of the plants while I’ve been gone but repotting them isn’t something he will do. I also bought a few things he will need to take care of the vegetable garden, as well as he will have to transplant the strawberries in better containers for me this year as I won’t be home.
I have also continued to workout with the beach body program The Prep. I should’ve been done the program by now by I am taking a few days off extra when I need too. My flare-ups have still been under control. My eating habits have changes since being back home because I don’t have all my beans and rice here. The hubby and I did buy some though and I found some left over frozen food that I made before leaving that are either vegan or vegetarian which will help me stay a bit more on track.
Other self-care things I’ve been doing since being home. Using the infra-red sauna. I haven’t seen a chiropractor or massage therapist since school and a few sore spots have grown. The infra-red sauna definitely helps with some of the pain that I’ve had. I’ve also been signing, this one sounds weird but I read somewhere that stimulating the uvula ( the dangly thing in the back of your throat) helps with pain control. Plus let’s face it, music itself is stress-relieving and I dance a bit too it helps keep me moving. Drinking plenty water and water, hydration is usually one the first things I slack on when my routine changes, but I’ve been doing good on keeping it up. I’ve also been taking in all the hugs and cuddles I can. I think that is one of the hardest thing about not being at home is the lack of physical contact with my loved ones. I didn’t think I would miss hugs and cuddles as much as I did. I’ve been grateful for this time off. I’ve gotten to enjoy my kids a lot. I’ve also worked on knitting a bit while I am at home. I am probably one the slowest knitters in the world.
Anyways, that is basically everything going on in my life at the moment. I will be trying to work on the blog in between spending time with the kids and homework.
Until next time,
Go find some spoons.
