This Week -Yikes!

Fave Pic IMG_3778 Lots of fun family game time this week.  Our current favorite is Rail and Sails Great Lakes.

Highlights of the Week What a week, right?  Gage is finally healthy and now we have to stay home.  But, it nice to finally have my kid back to his happy self after  a month+ of sickness.  If we’re friends on Facebook you saw that my horrifying mistake when making dinner led us to discover that Gage may have outgrown his dairy allergy!  Yay!  And if we’re not friends, let’s connect.  This is technically Gage’s Spring Break  so the teachers can prepare lessons, but we got a packet of assignments last week so we started those.  Gage loves a schedule and worksheets, both of which have helped make this week better.  Jason had to go downtown for work one day but now he’s working from home indefinitely.

Currently Listening Title: How Not to Die Alone, Author: Richard Roper  I’m like 5 minutes from being done.

Puzzles Finished IMG_3791 When we had to rid our house of everything a year and a half ago I had a lot  of unopened puzzles, so I threw away all of the boxes and plastic, but put the pieces into ziploc bags.  Now we have lots of mystery puzzles.  It’s fun to try and figure out what we’re puzzling.  You can see how many more we have left.  Plenty for the quarantine!

We’re also caught up with Survivor.  As the weeks have been stressful, I’ve switched from the Hallmark channel to the Food Network for my comfort food.  It’s a bonus that Gage loves the shows too (not like the Hallmark channel, lol). He loves Restaurant Impossible with Robert Irvine.

Plans for the Weekend  More of the same.  Some families are choosing to not to have the kids visit grandparents at this time and I understand that.  I also understand the importance of the visits for the littles and olds.  Gage has had a few visits with my parents and he will have another this weekend.

Stay well, my friends.

    My immune system is weakened so we have to take precautions. I’ve been using FaceTime with my grands. It’s helpful. I also ordered a puzzle which should arrive tomorrow.
    So good to hear that Gage is feeling better! Stay well!

      That’s too bad about the grandkids. Isn’t it great that the power of technology has made the quarantine feel less isolating? One thing we never have a shortage of here is books and puzzles! Take care of yourself Mary!

      We’ll see as the weeks progress. Gage is just now returning to full energy from bring sick so I envision it getting more depressing for him. If only I could convince him that sitting and reading for an hour was fun 😉

    It’s a scary time. We decided to close our business but several similar to ours are still open. (Since Carl and I are over 60 and Vance is on medication to suppress his immune system, we decided our health is more important than money.) The nail salons here are open and people are going to them. It just amazes me.

    Anyway, we’ve found plenty to do at home so far but will probably have cabin fever before it’s all over with.

    Stay safe!

      Our governor has shut down almost everything, nail salons and most of non-essential businesses. There are still some local restaurants open for takeout. I’ve been out twice to the post office this week and on those days picked up a meal to support the restaurants, but other than that we’ve been home.
      It must have been a difficult decision to close your store 😦

    So glad that Gage is feeling better! I’m only going to work and maybe stopping at a restaurant for take out. I am amazed that some people aren’t taking this virus serious! I’m praying they wont end up being sorry. I read an article today where 5 members of the same family have passed away from it. A friend who I’ve known since I was 5 has been working in Italy for the past few years. She says it’s getting finally better there now.

    Stay safe and healthy!

    Today was my grandson’s first birthday party. My daughter-in-law sent out invitations months ago, but last week she told people not to come because of the virus. But she did have a little get together for his grandparents. I couldn’t miss the party.

    I’m glad your son is finally well. It’s been a difficult time for you.

    Dear Edward and The Knife of Letting Go both look like good reads.

    I hope all of this will come to an end soon, and that life will return to normal.

    I’m glad Gage has finally recovered, here’s hoping you all stay healthy! Try some old fashioned DIY backyard crafts for him to burn energy on (eg coffee can stilts)
    Enjoy those puzzles.

    Wishing you a great reading week, be well!

    So glad to hear that Gage is much better now and how awesome that his dairy allergy seems to be behind him now. I love playing Ticket to Ride and that game looks very similar to that?

    Stay safe and healthy! It has been an unbelievable week so far so I’m hoping this week can be quieter.

    We’ve been having some fun with games and puzzles too. Also Brain Games on Disney plus has been awesome! Glad Gage is finally feeling better. My parents are pretty vulnerable so they can’t visit and we’re not going to visit them. But we try to keep contact once a week on the weekends. Online school has been difficult but I think we’re starting to hit our stride. I hope this week has gone better for you all and you’re finding ways to stay healthy and sane!
