My house looks like it was burglarized. Like, really burglarized. Chairs overturned, cushions off every single sofa and seat, drawers all open.....
We have a new paralegal joining our firm on Monday and for some insane reason I also decided to start our new school year the same day. We haven’t done school since February, I’ve been sick for 13 weeks but somehow I decided to really go for it on June 1st. 🤞🏻
This means that Case and I were working extra this week. You know what the kids do when both parents are working from home? They live their best life. 😂
For Finn that means that he takes out every single toy we own along with other odds and ends and creates “kingdoms” and traps all over the house. Seriously....even our driveway and front yard bushes have ropes and plastic bins strewn about.
For Harlow that means she gets up in the mix, sits on my lap and “helps” me work. 🤪 It feels absolutely nuts to be functioning this way. There is no surface in my house that isn’t a disaster right now and I worked away yesterday while listening to “If You’re Happy and You Know It” and “The Wheels on the Bus”.
At one point a massive delivery truck arrived because we ordered Harlow a big-girl full size bed (she’s still in a crib). The dog escaped from the back yard, we had a conference call going, one of the kids busted their chin on a brick wall....
pure chaos. I felt weirdly calm and composed and just smiled at Case. This insane life is ours and it’s messy and beautiful and I love it.
On top of all of that we are moving out of our office building. Our entire team has been working from home since the first week of March and we plan on keeping them at home until the pandemic is over. So, we have been organizing a move from the office into storage via FaceTime. Wow it has been a week.
To sum it up, the theme of this spring has been “ let it go.” I’m letting all the things go. It feels liberating and exciting during the moments I don’t let stress creep in.
The kids are happy and thriving. The house will be clean one day (not sure when 🤷🏼♀️) and I will surely miss this insane time.
How is everyone else’s quarantine going? 🤗
