Supply run adventure

Yesterday reminded me mildly of what a standard, routine day used to be like.

I was busy. All day long.

Reason being, I went on a supply run.

Supply run fashion statement.

The Monkey Bread saga – part 2

The continuation of the Monkey Bread saga continues…click here for part 1 from yesterday.

* * *

My tween girl and I were baking bread (me) and Monkey Bread (her).  While the doughs were rising, and the dishes piling up, and I had my back turned for a moment, she disappeared.

Because, kids. 🙃

A little incoherence, and a short update

This morning, I slept till 8 am.

Actually I woke several times since about 3 am. I had all sorts of jumbled thoughts about wicked, strange dreams I longed to get back to so I just rolled over and stayed in bed until 8. Sort of fell asleep again into a semi-dozed state.

The apocalyptic stash of Pringles is now officially gone.

I bought three cans and a few bags of chips before this all happened, and the boys have been out twice for supplies since we sequestered ourselves in our home in IDK, 14, 15 days now.

The chips are gone. All of them. 😶

I find myself facing a dilemma. It appears I no longer have a choice here.

I’m going to lock my teenager in the shed. 😛

Daily walk observations from Toronto

The sun is deceiving. It mimics spring is coming and yet, when I step outside, I have to put my winter coat on.

But I’m still going outside for a walk. I need a break from my walls.

Here are some observations:

Cultivating inadequacy

I had a meltdown a couple of days ago.

The worst part was my kids were watching.

Ugh.

In my defense, I had good reasons.
