1SE: April 2020

This was officially the longest and most painful month EVER.  Not really leaving the house, not having school, not doing anything 'normal' that we're use to has really started to take a toll.  I am terrified for the repercussions of all of the 'stay home' orders because I think there will be a serious mental health crisis that emerges.  We are struggling over here.  And we see glimmers of hope on the horizon that things may be starting to lift and open up in May, and I'm hoping and praying that happens. WE NEED TO GET OUT.  And even if it's just little trips here and there...this current April lifestyle is not sustainable at all.

So, with that said, April is done.  We're 1/3rd of the way done with 2020 and I'm like THAT'S IT?!?!? This past month went on for 543 days...not 30.  It was a tough one.  Lots of tears and screams and stressors.  But we did get more family time in than EVER and I am super grateful for that.  But the kids miss their friends so much.  And school.  And their activities outside of our house.  And my heart hurts for them and all of the other kiddos out there with everything they're missing.

And, while I've got you here, here's 121 days of 2020 for my #MooneyGrateful366 project.  Lots and lots of at home pics lately....hopefully we'll be able to get out and about as the summer comes oh so soon!

Here's to April -- so not upset to see you go!  May: let's hope you bring lots of great things...and maybe some adventures that aren't inside our house!
