My New Co-Workers; Working from Home with Kids

She thought things were going well and then the isolation set in. Here’s a little social distancing humour from one mom about her little co-workers… ~

I thought I was doing well. I thought that being trapped in my house, with a six year old and an eight year old, while still in the ‘heat’ of winter would be a breeze. I’m an introvert after all. But today, 15 days in and the isolation is finally getting to me. I eat, sleep, work, from home. Monday, I’ll start some kind of home schooling regime and I’ll do it on my own, not because I don’t have a partner, but because we have a business, that at this point, is still running. To ensure there is as much social distancing as possible happening in our restaurant, my husband is working open to close. And because today, I’m still processing this new world, I am unsure of where to start digging into the heart of what I’m dealing with and how to proceed… honestly, I’m too tired to even pick up the shovel. So, I’m going to ignore it – for a bit anyway – and focus on some social distancing humour. Feel free to play along.
