My house has what one could describe as “an infestation” of children. We suddenly have four children at home and cooped up on top of both my wife and myself working full time. There are a ton of trade offs that are having to happen continuously. I have found myself regularly working until 10pm or later to make up time and stealing away time on the weekend to catch up. Simple tasks like getting groceries have become a near vacation!
With the real threat of this dragging well into the summer (I’m more or less willing to lay even money on late June as the over under at this point), I am starting to feel a ton of anxiety. If you told me this would go for two weeks more or four weeks more, it would probably feel less doom and gloomy, but I do not expect things to simply vanish anytime soon.
On a side note, I think I’m going to start a revenge list for all the people who condescendingly have told me: “It’s a blessing to have all of the time with the kids!”
