I struggle with it…

Cleaning is not my strong suit. I always talk about how I struggle with it, but today I felt really good about the work I accomplished in my living room. It looks habitable today, right?

Any time I get to have one of these sandwiches, it’s a treat!

375 days since we’ve had to leave the house for school!

Normal is such subjective thing these days. We are getting back to (air quotes) normal (air quotes) on Monday going to in-person school. It’s a hybrid system where the kids will go two days a week until May. Normal school, pre covid, was 8:20 to 2:15 for 5 days a week.
