I think I’ve been out of touch for a few weeks. This week has not started off so great. Everything has been such a blur I’m not even sure what was last week and what was this week so far LOL.
For starters, everyone here has lost their flipping lines. People are hoarding food. Not just toilet paper. The meat canned goods I can’t even buy a thermometer for my business. I need a temporal thermometer because I now have to take the temperature of my daycare kids every morning on the front porch before they can come in my house. can I find one online? Yes. Are they price gouging? Yes. It’s normally $40-$50 is now $75 is the cheapest I have found.
In the madness, my middle son has been saying people are only preparing. I told him they were hoarding. Well I figured it was time for a visual lesson. So I found some items out of my own kitchen and took the kids to the local free food pantry in front of the church. I explained that taking things for your family that they need is OK. I said taking things away from other people so they can’t survive and have what they need is wrong. And I believe they got it.
With all of that being said, my business has been closed until next Monday. A week with no income is a very big financial burden for our family. I know God already has a plan and he will provide. There still the human side of me that wants to question it. I went back to the doctor today and was told I’m still suffering from a lingering upper respiratory infection. Hence my in-home daycare business has to be closed for the next five days while I take a pharmacy full of medicine. I know this is the right thing to do. My kids’ schools finally closed until April 3 today.
So I’m trying to make the best of it even though the weather has not been cooperating￼.
so I’m standing in faith that God will make sure my family is taken care of as well. Since no one‘s coming and it is their spring break I’m trying to make the best of it even though the weather‘s been crappy. So today we went for a walk, and had some fun outside.
My prayers go out to all of you during this time. I look forward to staying in touch as usual. May your week get better￼￼!!
