This is a straight-up episode. We know we are all in quarantine & staying at home to save lives. But, we know that we could be driving a person or people crazy being at home.
How are YOU doing at home? Truly? Is there someone driving you crazy or are you driving someone crazy? Are you an introvert and loving that you can be at home in your PJs? Or, are you an extrovert & are absolutely hating this and want to be around people, anyone other than the people you are with at home? And, are you alone? Here is our complete story, brutal and honest, during the quarantine so far.
David and Lianna, we are two completely different people. We love each other, but we also have two different personalities and needs. We share some funny moments as well as not-so-funny moments that we both have had during quarantine. But, we want to share tips that have helped us and maybe can help you as well.
One: We both need our space. We learned that quickly.
Two: We both have different needs. (Examples...extrovert vs. introverts)
Three: We have to get creative when making food. Bust out those dusty cook books and experiment some.
Four: Exercising is key. Going for a walk or a bike ride makes all the difference. Get outside and get some fresh air.
Five: Spice things up. No pun intended.
Of course, we want to address the other challenges that you could be dealing with that we honestly don’t know about, such as having your children at home & homeschooling, or both parents working essential jobs and not able to care for their kids, or having an elderly family member or neighbor that cannot leave their homes.
And, we can feel very helpless at this point, if we let it get to us. However, this is the time to get creative. Look for creative ways to HELP if you can.
For example, if you know how to teach or homeschool, help a mama or dad out by sharing tips to homeschool their kids. If you are able to move and drive around versus an older person or high risk people, maybe ask what they need from the store. Get creative and be there for one another and stop driving each other crazy.
