Surviving the mom quarantined life

Well hello there! Welcome back to my page! I’ve been gone for quite sometime but that’s only because I’ve been super busy with work and school…oh and juggling my personal life.

Like all of you, well most of you, I’ve been staying at home attending to my duties of writing from home and pursuing my education. I’m hoping to graduate this fall, therefore I’ll have more “time” on my hands. But before I jump to this hectic lifestyle we are all living in, I hope each and everyone of you is safe and sound at home. I continuously pray for those who are affected by COVID-19 and hoping this ends soon.

Ok, ok, back to business.

These past couple of weeks have been C-R-A-Z-Y to say the least. Don’t get me wrong, I’m blessed and thankful to work from home. However, like most of you, I go crazy being at home! I get it, yes it’s for our safety and I’m totally okay with that. But when you have 3 crazy kids running around, having to feed them every other hour, and having to yell at them like 100 times to separate them from fighting, um yeah, it gets hectic.

Sometimes, I feel like my head is going to explode. I seriously feel like a computer memory (RAM). Oh my apologies, for those who don’t know what that is…According to crucial.com, computer memory or random access memory (RAM) is your system’s short-term data storage; it stores the information your computer is actively using so that it can be accessed quickly. The more programs your system is running, the more memory you’ll need. 

Sheeesshhhh!!! I knew I wasn’t crazy! I knew I needed a bigger head for all this craziness in my life.

Unlike most of these cool moms, I don’t craft with my kids, I don’t bake with my kids, I do homework halfway with them, I drink 2 cups of coffee in the morning to “chill,” I absolutely have the TV on from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. (give me a break, the weather in Yuma is already in the triple digits), I do drink ONCE a week, I do shower everyday, I cook three meals a day (well, for the most part), I tend to go on walks with the family to release some stress, I am on my laptop 12 hours a day (between work and school), I have been saving more money, I have been eating LIKE shit for the most part, I don’t play video games or board games. Diet? what’s that? movies are my best friend, and I tend to go grocery shopping to get away from my family for at least an hour (trust me, you would do the same if you were in my shoes).

But I’m curious to know, how are you spending your life? What are you doing to cope and entertain yourself or your family?
