    Happy to report I've been getting better sleeps.
    One night I was so desperate, I put on these great big ear muffs that are meant for working around loud noise. I went into our guest bedroom where it's easier to make it dark as can be, and slept hard.
    Since then, I forced myself onto a strict routine. Of course routines got buggered up with the pandemic, and with changes that had to be made. Changes and adjustments still happening but I've created very structured days for myself for now. It's just what I need at this time.
    I've been missing swimming so much. I go for walks, and do a little basic strength training at home , but my god I miss swimming!!
    Still not comfortable going to the pools, and the lakes have been packed so I've avoided that. Plus issues with the water in some places unfortunately, so kinda leery as of now.
    I'm seriously considering just one of those above ground little pools. Can't do laps or anything, but therapeutic to be able to go out any time in the back yard and move around in the water. I'm mostly scared of other people, so it would solve that.
    Looking for more secluded spots to camp for a bit, just want some the away, but been super busy too now with other things. I think it's important though not to miss out on all the things I'd usually do for fun in summer.
    Well that's quite a long one. Now for bed!

    Thanks for asking! OKkk just still in limbo about whether schools will reopen. Which is stressful. I've made a concerted effort to read (even) more and reduce screen time more - my local library reopened for curbside pickup so i retrieved a number of books I'd had on hold.

    That would be stressful. Hopefully you know what is happening one way or another soon. What grade will your son be going in now?
    Oh that's great about the library doing curbside pickup. I've been actually reading a lot of cookbooks lately, and using them. I need some new books though to read as I've gone through mine over during lockdown.

    Cookbooks are probably calming, yes? 6th grade -brand new renovated middle school. Received his supply box and apparently there's a small canister of wipes in it. Pre-pandemic I would have wanted to open the box if there were let's say M&Ms -now those wipes are sooooo tempting (luckily my grocery store had some in stock the other day for the first time since February or so!)

    It's wild that I remember you first mentioning here that you were a new mom, and now he's in grade 6!

    Ohhhh bleach!!! I don't use it but I have a small stash of bleach wipes should I ever need it. I know grade 6. Ridiculous. It feels like yesterday, not 8 years ago when at preschool library story time he exclaimed pointing at the big clock on the wall "oh a big clock!!" except he said clock without the L sound. Can you imagine kids actually used to sit close together on rugs together and sing and dance and listen to stories? While the grownups were able to chat maybe a foot apart?

    Spending the day super cleaning the house. I usually hate cleaning. I found a trick that works for me finally. It's all in my head but whatever works!!
    I imagine I'll be like a guest coming into a hotel. What would be awesome to walk into? Kinda fun playing this game. I've even been coming up with themes. Today is "white day". Lol.
