Update During Quarantine

Good grief! All this coronavirus stuff makes me crazy! The laundry has doubled, the cooking has doubled, the cleaning has doubled. I had beautiful aspirations of finally becoming the organized woman I have always wanted to be during this thing. It has not happened. God truly has a sense of humor: I am not a naturally organized person, but He gives me gifts of administration when I need it. That’s how I know that my gift is truly from God, it is so un-natural for me.

Anyways, I’m trying to not deal with jealousy (of course I am saying this tongue-in-cheek). I was talking to one of my beautiful friends the other day and she was telling me how she has cleaned all of her house perfectly…twice. I can’t even imagine that as I have 7 very active and hungry people around here. The laundry machines are going everyday, the cooking keeps me at the grocery store at least twice a week and the internet is slow considering that my son is working from home, my daughter is doing college from home, my youngest is doing online schooling now and my husband sometimes works from home. Oh, and did I mention that I teach my music lessons online now. I can’t believe that the internet hasn’t blown up like I formerly predicted.

I have tried some fun new recipes though. Air-fryer taquitos are awesome! So is air-fryer pizza. I also gained enough weight to start keto back up. I found a mozzarella (I found a huge package on big sale) keto bread recipe that I’ve tried, but I’m finding out that I can easily gain weight off of keto bread (it’s yummy.)

I have to remind myself to be thankful. As many are bored half out of their mind with quarantine, I am struggling to keep my head above water. My house is full, my laundry baskets are full, and life is definitely not boring. It’s like a mini-party everyday around here, and have I mentioned that when this whole thing is over, we would have had 3 quarantine birthdays? My husband is happy, the kids are happy, I’m happy when I’m not thinking about my to do list, and God is SO good. I have to keep my focus where God would have it to be; on Him. I’ll get my perfectly organized house later, maybe.

Psalm 37:3-5 Trust in the LORD and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.
