When I became pregnant with my daughter, I became flighty. I blamed it on “Pregnancy Brain”.
When I was engaged and planning my wedding, I became forgetful. I blamed it on “Wedding Brain”.
When I was going through Widow Fog (which is 100% real), I blamed it on “Widow Brain”.
And now I realize that I am afflicted again…with Quarantine Brain.
It makes sense. I am working 40 hours a week from home (which I am grateful) and I am homeschooling my kindergarten daughter.
To be truthful, I am envious of those who are having a restful quarantine because between work and home school…I am exhausted.
Add in all the news. Lots of news. Press conferences. I have hit my limit.
And all the opinions. Everyone is an expert.
My brain is on overload. I haven’t had time to read much or write and I have thought about writing many times. But the thoughts are so jumbled right now.
I have done some cooking and some trips to the shore. We are allowed to go to the beaches here, we just need to remain socially distant.
Quarantine got the best of my daughter. She gave herself bangs. (insert facepalm emoji)
So I wanted to do a quick check in? How are you feeling during this quarantine? What are you thinking about? Have you cooked? Have you given yourself bangs? How are you dealing?
