distancing day 1.0 thoughts:

It’s been a year. I thought about writing a list of things I’d learned this year or maybe disappointments I’d had or things I prefer like people giving me a Meagan bubble, but that all felt heavy. I’ve had such a wonderful day and I don’t wanna.

It snowed and snowed and snowed and snowed today. Even though it was a tooooon of snow, it really didn’t accumulate all that much because it was still relatively warm. The kids played outside a bunch and around 2 we all went sledding. I truly cannot remember the last time I had as much fun as I had for that hour. I laughed so hard that I know my abs will be sore tomorrow. We wrestled, threw snowballs, and laughed and laughed and laughed. It was so much fun.

When we got back, I rolled out dough so the kids could decorate sugar cookies. It made a colossal concrete-y mess all over the kitchen, but the kids had a blast and I did too. I originally bought the stuff to make sugar cookies so that we could make rainbow cookies for St. Patrick’s Day but I could not find a rainbow, a shamrock, a hat, a pot- nothing. Instead, we dumped out every single cookie cutter we have and had a smorgasbord. I made myself a trophy because I’m number one at lots of things: making messes, avoiding laundry, naps, driving out of my way to go to Dutch Bros and I really should be celebrated.

Jerry iced a car and it totally gave me mod taxi cab vibes.

I will include pictures of the other ones too just so you can grasp how hard we should NOT quit our day jobs.

I honestly don’t know if I will write tomorrow or not. I can’t really decide if it’s worth going beyond a year or how far it’s actually going to go… I get my second shot April 6 so maybe that’s when I’ll stop? Or maybe I’ll keep writing til the masks come off? Or maybe I’ll keep going til the kids are back in school and we’ve reclaimed some normalcy. I guess only time will tell. See you tomorrow… maybe.
