I had every intention to write more. I have half baked posts lying in my google docs and in my head. They have lost their essense with the passage of time. When I had the time, I dilly dallied. When I had the motivation, I was time constrained. Missed opportunities indeed.
We have been doing ok so far. The first couple of weeks of lockdown slowed down our routine while filling us with dread. After that, life started happening. Remote learning, zoom classes, and zoom meet ups. Social distancing changed the form, not the substance of what we are doing. In the beginning, I was more current, spent more time with the sonny boys, was proactively checking in with family and friends, and in general made the most out of the forced slowdown. I can’t say the same about this week or today. Competing priorities, conflicting schedules and packed evenings are back.
I celebrated my 42nd b’day birthday last week. I am grateful that even when there is so much turmoil in the world out there, my birthday celebrations happened without missing a beat. My tribe, near and far, wrapped me in a blanket of warmth and love.
Tatie bye for now, will catch up soon!
