Online school is definitely "not my favourite but I will keep doing it if I have too." (The kids have amazed Dave and I with their willingness to participate fully in online learning.)
Rachel (excuse me, Rach) is super excited that we bought her and Sam new snow shovels because now she can be more effective when she's helping to shovel snow.
Sam loves eating seaweed for lunch, unlike anyone else in the family!
Sam recognizes that Rachel wants to change her name, but he insists on calling her "El" (pronounced like the last syllable of her name)! (I'm sure you can guess how well that goes over! Hahaha!!!)
Sam is turning into a pre-teen who likes to spend a lot of time in his room.
Dave started a new job at a new company at the beginning of January. He is really enjoying the new challenge. (This was a sought after change so it really is a good thing.)
He's a lapsed jogger but he wants to get more fit in the new year. (Thus, he has been doing workout videos with me sometimes.)
Dave is always looking for a good book to read and seems to default to "easy" reads like Hemingway and Steinbeck. However, he got a new book for his birthday that is less dense and he's looking forward to reading it.
I am really looking forward to working from home today so I can watch the inauguration. Rach(el) will be missing some school and watching it with me.
I desperately want this lock down to end so I can get a massage and a proper haircut and, possibly, even some highlights! Gasp! This all feels like the height of luxury right now.
I currently have three bouquets of tulips in the house and I'm holding myself back from buying more!
So there you go -- three things going on with each of us right now. What's something going on with you?
