After this, we should have checked off all the items on the Ohio Department of Health’s list of things to do in order to be prepared for COVID19.
This is much harder as a single parent because, it just is. I wish I had the backup and adult contact because being trapped in the house with my kids is going to drive me crazy. Yes, I know it’s a short trip and I love my kids but I don’t have much adult contact anymore. It wears a little over time.
I feel like I’m in this alone and that makes a bad situation even worse. The good news is I’m not a quitter and despite the challenge, I know we’ll get through this. I just wish I didn’t feel so alone.
I’m so grateful that Gavin’s doing as well as he is. That’s one less thing to worry about. I just need to keep him that way.
At the time of writing, 9 PM on 03/10/2020, there are 3 confirmed cases of COVID19 in Ohio, and they’re within about 60 miles of my house. There are 15 cases pending test results. I feel like we’re going to be as prepared as we can be, should there come a point that we must go into lock down.
Thank God I work from home. It’s hasn’t always been easy but it’s really paying off now. It took a great deal of time and effort to get here but I’m so grateful to be in this position. I know many others will be faced with lost wages and that breaks my heart.
I’m working to schedule an emergency pod, for lack of a better phrase, with Dr. Tara Smith, in order to help educate my listeners on COVID19 and how we can best protect ourselves and our families.
The moto for this week is planning not panic.
