It was no surprise to read that the health orders are continuing. We haven’t really gotten in control of the situation – and rightfully so, because the people who aren’t following the rules, still don’t care and those of us who are trying our best, we’re doing just that.
I keep reminding myself that the government doesn’t expect 100% compliancy. They just expect most people to try their best. This thinking has really helped because it’s moved me from a place of guilt and shame into one of acceptance. I used to worry “am I doing enough” and now I just try to do as best as I can. And since the world snapped on me when I thought I was doing my best, I know give myself way more grace in accepting what is.

Yes, the kids go to school and daycare. We still go to the store and order groceries, but I just want to sit with my friends and a drink, and a plate of deep fried pickles. I’m lonely, but I have found myself doing more work. Thats what you do when you have nothing else to do right?
I hired help for the Cloth Diaper Podcast. I signed new contracts. And I have found myself very busy.
Heres to another four weeks… four weeks of wondering why we can’t have a play date and trying to survive.
