Shake, Rattle and Roll

Day 19 Well, it’s Friday. Everyone have big weekend plans?  Yeah, me either. We are running low on meat and milk and bread, so I guess I’ll need to make a plan to go get some supplies this weekend. Other than that, nothing on the agenda. I was telling someone the other day that weekends […]

What’s Going On?

Day 18 Good morning, party people!  How are we doing today? Yeah, me too. This morning I have some burning questions rolling around my mind.  Since we don’t have anywhere to go or really anything to do – let’s discuss. Why have I started getting emails from random businesses I have never patronized?  For example, […]

Let the Sunshine

Day 17 I almost forgot to post today!  Not because I’ve been so busy, just because I think my brain is actually starting to turn into mush.  The days meld into each other and I thought I had done this already for today.  Clearly I have not. Today I was very productive. All the laundry […]

Welcome Back

Day 13 Lucky 13.  Woohoo. We have reached the 2nd weekend of the stay at home/isolation/social distancing/no one is coming to save us coronavirus thingy. Today in our neck of the woods – pun intended – we are under severe weather threats. That seems about right. Nothing says Happy Birthday to You like a world-wide […]

Holiday

Day 12 Today I declared a Forest Academy holiday. We are taking a three day weekend. We will read our book assignment and get dressed (maybe), but we are not going to adhere to a school day schedule.  I’ve decided that the book I’m reading needs to be finished today, and that I want to […]

The Coloring Song

Day 7 And just like that, it’s been a week. We’ve entered the phase of this process where I need to remind myself what day it is. It is Sunday, in case you didn’t remember either. A lot of churches are doing online services and I’ve clicked on a couple to see what that looks […]

The Gambler

Day 6 Happy Saturday, friends! I’m writing this post early today because I plan to disconnect from most technology (not music) for the rest of the day.  I’ve been awake since 5:30 a.m. because – well you know why – the dog! I didn’t bother to try to go back to sleep. I’ve been reading […]

Cry Me A River

Day 4 Hey, it’s Thursday!  My child just said she can’t wait to get back to school for P.E.  I don’t even know who we are anymore. P.E.???? What is happening?  I guess I need to find a ball and start throwing it at her or something.  I’m not even sure I have a ball. […]

It’s the End of the World As We Know It…And I Feel Fine

Day 1 Good Morning!  Welcome to a whole new world! As an historian, I am enthralled with first person stories of historical events.  I think we can all agree that this CoronaVirus outbreak can definitely be considered an historical event; and so I am going to be documenting this time in the country, the world, […]
