We Have Been Ordered To Shelter In Place.

Pretty much means this is the only thing we will see outside of going to get food for the foreseeable future. My husband is essential so he will continue to work. They now have clearance to work from the office two days a week and then this will be his workplace for the other three days.

For some people staying at home might be hard, but I suffer from anxiety, so it isn’t that bad for me. We have computers, games for the kids, and art supplies. We also have a nice size exercising mat that allows for some relaxation.

With our city now being under the Shelter In Place order and seeing cases rise so drastically it is important to make sure the girls remain calm. We are now at nine cases and it’s starting to get a little scary. Even though my husband’s job is essential they have talked to them about the likelihood of the office closing at some point. I would like to shelter in place for at least two weeks without having to go to the store, but I don’t know if that is the smart thing to do. Not going food shopping could result in us not having food in the future. Searching for food is already hard enough as it is. When we go out, we are having to go to at least three different stores to get items that we need.

It’s so hard to find eggs. I have been searching chickens online, but then I don’t know if I can have chickens because I live in the city. I was able to get seeds, so that is definitely something we will work on in the near future. After we plant our veggies, we can at least have salads. I am really thankful that my children love veggies because in the near future that will be a go to item for our house.

As for everything else, we are hanging in there. I knew this was going to be a bad virus , so I am thankful that I had time to explain it to my children before it got to this point. I’m going to be honest with you, I never thought it would come to our shores. I thought China would get a handle on it before it jumped to other countries, but we are dealing with human nature.

I am sure they had people thinking and doing the same things our people are doing right here. Some of us did not take this virus serious enough and due to that flaw, they became carriers. So, all we can do now, is make the best out of a bad situation and pray. We must continue to listen to the CDC and stay away from people. This is what our county is doing. If you are doing the same or similar post it in the comment section. Don’t feel like you are in this alone. I am sure we are all feeling some sort of way about this and it’s okay to feel that way.
