Social Distancing

I’m trying not to freak out about the virus, but I’m also not taking any chances. I have enough problems. Plus, we all need to do our part to slow the spread. From what I can tell, a lot of people aren’t taking it very seriously, unfortunately. Sigh.

We were supposed to go to a friend’s house this afternoon to start our D&D YouTube campaign, but we decided to appear by Skype instead. (I wasn’t feeling very well or social anyway so it worked out).

You’ve gotta love technology.

Jackson was supposed to have a sleepover tonight with two friends, but I didn’t feel comfortable with that, so I told him no. He was pretty upset, and I get it, because he’s been looking forward to it all week, but I explained why it’s so important, which helped. I’m disappointed that the other parents are moving forward with the sleepover. Seems irresponsible, but I can only control myself.

One silver lining of staying home is that this project is going to be finished this afternoon:

It looks so good.

Most court is cancelled this week, with the exception of two dockets. My lawyer friend is going to cover one for me, because she doesn’t want my immune compromised ass in the germy af courthouse, which I greatly appreciate, and she’s already going to be there. I’m hoping to get the other continued. I’m also planning on canceling three other outings I had scheduled this week.

I guess I have plenty of time for reading, cleaning, and exercise now, huh? Oh and Discovery, because god-motherfucking-damn that shit is good. I also think I’m going to go ahead and get Disney Plus.

Okay bye for now.

Lunch Date

With my favorite boy at his school.

He’d been begging me for weeks, and I was finally able to make it happen. He was so excited. You can’t really tell that from the pic, because he was mid-chew. Lol. I brought his favorite: Culvers. I sat with him and his classmates and they were all very sweet and excited.

I feel like I’m winning at this parenting thing recently. I’ve been putting a lot of effort into being present and engaged with the kids. It’s easy to let work take over and neglect what’s truly important. I’m done with that bullshit.

*off prompt*

The prompt for today is confetti. I could have whipped up some funfetti cupcakes, since I have a box of cakemix in the pantry, but why torture myself?

So instead you get a pic from tonight’s D&D campaign: Dragon Heist.

I have to admit, tonight was a bit tough for me. The teen is all about being contrary, because she thinks it’s cute and funny, but really it’s just annoying as fuck. The tween means well, and loves to play, but he doesn’t pay attention/gets all spazzy, which is frustrating. It doesn’t help that I was hungover, and going through carb withdrawals, meaning I had very little patience for their nonsense.

Maybe next time will be better. D put a lot of energy into this adventure, and I think we sort of ruined it for him.

I think we should get a new adult group going. J & M told us they’d love to play. I know C & J are down. And RZ. The truth is: I just don’t like playing D&D with kids. 🤷🏻‍♀️
