Who else is completely over this quarantine life? 🙋‍♀️ I'm looking forward to going out of our house and not having to remember our face masks. I am also looking forward to being able to go to a public park with my kids again! I believe the world will forever be changed because of this! The new normal will be constantly hand sanitizing/washing and social distancing yourself from people you don’t know. If you ever hear someone sneezing/coughing from now on, your first thought will be to walk run in the opposite direction.  That really sucks for people that have bad allergies...like my husband LOL.

One of my fears is the unknown for this upcoming fall. I know they’re working hard and throwing around a bunch of ideas on how the upcoming school year is going to be run.  Some of the ideas I've heard just don't sound reasonable for working parents or single parents.  Personally, I  hope they’re not trying to do the school year via e-learning..  I feel that would put a strain on parents and the kids.  I've been trying to teacher Parker these last few weeks and it's been very testing. I am no teacher! I don’t have the patience or the skill set to teach a 6 year old.  Plus, at every opportunity, both my children are pushing me until I break and lose my shit on them.  I know the school is a much healthier learning environment for children. It is much better than my home, where there are constantly distractions everywhere. I need the schools to open in the fall.  I need them to come up with a solution that’s going to not hinder families that don’t have a stay at home parent already. I know the school districts are working hard to try to figure things out and they are accounting for parents that don’t have help or have to work, but it’s really scary thinking of what might happen! 

On a lighter note I am looking forward to having a glass or 5 of wine...at a restaurant...on a date night...where we don’t have to wear a mask!  I can't wait to take the kids out in public and not feel like I’m getting stared at for being a bad mom and having them with me. Who knew the simple things like that would be forever changed.  All the things we as a society took for granted because it was our normal way of life...until it wasn't.  It’s crazy and sad all at the same time...but things will slowly get normal for us as we get used to this new way of life.  I know the medical field is working hard to come up with a vaccination that will help bring us back to some type of normalcy again!
