Today I realized that I have’t posted a life update since March – seriously, where has the time gone?
Check out what I’ve been up to these past few months.
Chris and I spent most of our lock down watching documentaries like Tiger King, Filthy Rich, The Last Dance, etc. We also managed to finish Ozark, which I highly recommend.
Right now we’re pretty deep in Drag Race, Canada’s Drag Race, and Animal Kingdom. Lucky for us, there’s never a shortage of shows to watch on Netflix.
Upbeat pop music has been the only thing keeping me sane since being home 24/7 with the kids. Lady Gaga’s Chromatica is giving me LIFE, and I’ve fallen in love with all of the TikTok songs that hit the top 10. Who else is guilty of being sucked in by TikTok?
Current favourite song to play on repeat: Breaking Me – Topic & A7S
A ton of new home cooked meals. I’ve been using this time at home to figure out some new dinners. I recently perfected my fish taco recipe and have found myself baking more than ever.
Fun fact – up until this point, I was doing my baked potatoes wrapped in foil in the oven. Apparently this is all wrong, because when I read this, I completely switched it up. Our baked potatoes are 100x better now.
This feels so weird to say… but nothing.
Our Dominican Republic trip was cancelled and my Billie Eilish and Harry Styles concerts were postponed, but we’ve completed a long list of home tasks (which feels amazing!!!).
We finished all of the flooring on the upper level of our home, had all of the windows and doors replaced, upgraded to a brand new fridge, and have been doing endless trim work. It’s weird – life is so much less hectic, but we’ve been staying very busy.
I’ve been trying really hard lately to keep myself in a positive mindset. Working from home, home school, and running a household has really taken a toll on me, but I’m constantly trying to remind myself that this is the most time I may ever have with my children. As someone who likes to plan, things just feel weird. I’m sure many of you can relate.
Embracing these crazy times is mentally difficult, but I think we’re all trying our best.
Right now it seems like there is really no plan for anything. We’re waiting on information about what will happen with the 2020-2021 school year, but otherwise there is just nothing to plan. My 30th birthday is approaching quickly, but I’m happy doing nothing.
How have you handled the last few months?
