Day 2

Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone out there.
I learned this past December that I have a little bit of Irish in me. I had no clue!

Today is day 2 of no school.
The kiddo asked me today if I was going to post on my blog each day she is off school except for when it is spring break and my reply to her was, "I don't know." But, I am going to try and give updates on how things are going here for those that would like to read. 

Today, has been quite the exciting day. (A little sarcasm in that comment.) 
My boss fell down the stairs at work. That was pretty rough. From making sure he was okay, to getting him something to help stop his finger from bleeding, to making sure all the oatmeal was cleaned up as well as the glass that broke, to watching him pop one of his fingers back into place. OY... it was a lot to take in this morning. He went to the urgent care and got 4 stitches in his finger. He is okay, just going to be a bit sore for a while. 

C is doing good at my work with school. She has done all her school work that they have assigned her. She watched a video of her science teacher and went through the work she had for her. She did her English Language Arts work and played a game her Math teacher posted. She is a little frustrated that there is not more from other classes, but I just try to remind her that this is all so new and they are putting their stuff together for her. She also has learning websites she can use as well. She is keeping busy by doing her own stuff. Let me tell you, this would have been much harder if she was still young. However, at 12 she does awesome. She spends the summers at my work, so she is use to it. Just trying our best to keep things on track the best we can. Staying in our daily routines and tacking all the newness that comes along with all this social distancing. 

I have spent some part of my day getting a few things figured out in case my husband doesn't work. He doesn't have the option to work from home, so this has been our biggest worry so far, financially. Thankfully he worked some yesterday and is on a job today... We have a few options together for if we are unable to pay a few bills the next month or two. So, that is relieving.  And I know we are not the only ones in this situation. I know there are people out there who are already out of a job and I am praying for them and praying they have some options out there for them. My motto for now... it doesn't hurt to ask. It doesn't hurt to ask if there is some sort of assistance during this time for this bill or that. 

This is definitely a difficult time we are living in. The panic of others, the fear, the unknown... it all can be soul crushing. Try to take it day by day and think of what you are thankful for in this day only. Do that daily... I will try to post a few encouraging things for people throughout this time and post updates weekly updates while the kiddo has no school. Stay tuned...

For today's encouragement I am sharing some bible verses to help you through your day. Some are for anxiety, some are for fear, some are for the storms, some are just to remember God's love and what He is constantly doing in our lives.
