Coping with Quarantine

Updated: Aug 8

I thought I'd finally do a post about quarantine. Personally, I'm tired of people complaining about quarantine. It's for our safety and protection, and to help this horrible virus stop spreading.

Now from a parent's point of view, yes it can be hard sometimes. I can't take my kids out to the park or mall to let loose some energy. My husband is home more, either working from home, or just working locally. He's not used to being around the kids so much. So it has been a tough transition for him I think. We LOVE the time with our children, and each-other. However, we tend to step on each-others toes every once in awhile which is perfectly normal!

Some ways I have been trying to engage the kids, and have some fun are:

Dance Parties

Fire Pits & Roasting Marsh-mellows

Blanket Forts


ABC Mouse

Playing Outside

... did I mention Dance Parties? lol

The kid's have loved having us both home. They are taking in as much attention as they can get from us. I really do love them, and my time with them. I feel like we've all grown so much closer as a family.

I feel like I have been busy, busy, busy. I am constantly cleaning, which to no avail seems pointless at this point. If your a parent you understand lol. I'm the kind of person who needs some alone time, or some quiet time. I'm also the kind of person who constantly has to be doing things lol.

So here are a few things that I've been doing during this time:

Reading ALOT

Spending time in my bible




Getting projects done around the house

Doing my nails

Doing a face mask

Relaxing and drinking LOTS of coffee lol

I wanted to talk more about my time reading my Bible, and just spending time with Jesus.

This has been an extremely vital part of my daily routine. I DO NOT skip this part of my day. Even if it's not always in the morning, at some point during my day I escape to my office and spend time with Jesus in my bible. Reading God's word, and learning more about who he is has helped me to stay calm and not be anxious about anything. It has increased my Faith in Him and His Promises.

I am a person who struggles with anxiety. I get anxious so easily and so hard to the point it makes me physically sick. I worry about my family and my friends. Especially worry about my children and my husband. However, God's Word and my time with him have brought such a peace and calm into my life. Yes, I still tend to worry, or feel anxious. But when I start to feel overwhelmed I simply take out my bible or pray and ask God to help give me peace.

If you don't know Christ as your Savior. I urge you to take a chance on him, what do you have to lose? Nothing! However, you have EVERYTHING to gain from knowing and accepting him into your life.

I am praying for you ALL during this time. I pray peace over you, and good health.
