Healthy At Home

I guess now is as good a time as any to get back into the blogging world, right?  I miss it so much, but life is crazy...well, it WAS crazy.  Actually, it's still crazy but just in a different kind of way.  Our schedules are clear but everything else around us is in chaos.  Of course, that's another story for another day.

All things considered, I'm happy for the reprieve in our schedule and hope to take advantage of the slower pace.  Like most everyone else, we are experiencing the effects of the coronavirus. We're living in a parallel world where we alternate between gratitude for the opportunity to breathe in the slower pace, while balancing the concern of so many unknowns.  It's a delicate dance, but we are making the most of it.  We are choosing (or trying to choose) joy in the middle of a really, flat out, weird season of life. Being the history dork I am, I know that those who follow behind us will want to study how we are surviving this international pandemic, so I've decided to start blogging again while I have the time and an opportunity for content.

Side note...history was my minor in college and I only lacked three classes to have a double major. I opted out of finishing the second degree because during my last semester at WKU (go Big Red)  I snagged my first TV job and also decided to get married, so #priorities.  Also, getting married was the best decision ever...duh! Some days I wish I had finished the second major, but more often than not, I realize it wouldn't have given me any professional advantage. My broadcasting degree has proven far more valuable. Nonetheless, I have enjoyed teaching Social Studies during this home school thing.  I'm rocking at least one subject.  I think I could rock writing class too but my students don't share my enthusiasm for the subject, so I digress. Also, casual blogging breaks every grammar rule known to the English language, so maybe I should just scratch that theory.

Back to the point, I think I will blog through this pandemic both for myself and for anyone who wants to look back on it some day.  I have some pretty heavy thoughts I want hash out too, but not today. We will save that for later.  My goal right now is two posts a day...one current post and one older post.  I will start in January and go from there to get caught up.

Ok...I think this is a good place to stop, so we will pause and pick right back up tomorrow. I'm so excited to be back at the "keyboard," and I can't wait to share my life with all two of you who still read this (hi, Mom and Mimi).  Haha!  But really, let's make the most of this pandemic.  See you tomorrow!
