150 days of #COVID19 lockdown and the #depression is real

The boys and I have been on lockdown for 150 days today. It’s crazy to think it’s been this long and it’s even crazier to think we could be looking at almost another year before we get access to a vaccine. While we’re all safe and healthy, that doesn’t mean we’re doing great. Don’t get …

Confessions: I’m worn out and overwhelmed

Today has me stressing out quite a bit. As lockdown drags on and on, it’s getting harder and harder to make ends meet.

I have mixed feelings about this

Today is the last day of self-quarantine before the kids get to spend some time with their mom. Assuming all goes well today, the boys will spend Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning with their mom and grandparents. I have mixed feelings about this and I wouldn’t be honest if I said otherwise.. I’ve kept the …

I’ve managed to keep my kids safe and healthy for 70 days

Today marks day 70 of COVID19 lockdown for my family. It’s been a long journey and I’m afraid we aren’t even almost there yet. I’m preparing to remain locked down as long as it takes to keep my family safe. Yes, it’s a massive sacrifice but the alternative is unacceptable to me. We have made …
