I was checking my diary. It’s now officially 7 months since our own little family lockdown started. Seven months, that’s a long time. Yes there have been some bleak and lonely periods. But we are still here. Still grinding onwards. That gives me hope.

With our son’s anxieties, with a pandemic showing no signs of ebbing, with increasingly random government – we just have no idea how long this family isolation will go on for. Possibly for many months to come.

Yet we have already survived 7 months. We have made some new memories. Still had fun times. Technology allowed friendships to flourish

We have more than just survived 7 months, did manage to live a bit as well. We can certainly cope with a few more months of this.

  1. Love all those positives in your post Superdad. Technology did indeed allow friendship to flourish. Beautiful things can come out of difficult times. It’s just like the sun appearing over the dark cloud in your photo. Wonderful photo by the way.

  2. We’re back to the pioneer days, when people lived monthsor even years isolated. But we have an electronic safety net if real trouble occurs. We get to rediscover our families and our home environments, but we aren’t completely on our own. Not a bad deal, really.
    We SOOO got this, as Robyn said.

    I have SERIOUS photo envy! Just sayin… your sky is so huge! I live in a valley, my sky is interrupted by hills.๐Ÿ’Œ๐Ÿ’Œ๐Ÿ’Œ

  3. It’s just my humble opinion but I think you are doing an awesome job, and more than that, inspiring others with your positive attitude. Although it’s quite okay to be human – nobody can be positive 100% of the time (so, like, no pressure eh). Just wanted to let you know your efforts are appreciated. ๐Ÿ™‚ Take care of you too!

  4. We are learning how this new normal works. We’ll get there somehow, when we wouldn’t have to worry out this pandemic. My kids are still working from home and my grandson is on home study too online.

  5. I was just thinking myself today… one year ago – everything was normal… as what we knew it to be… we had no idea what was gonna smack us upside the head!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿคจ

    2/3 more months and we would know… sorta ๐Ÿคจ … we still didnโ€™t know how bad would become because some idiots hid that fact and still try to.

    Crazy to think back, it hasnโ€™t even been a year yet and it feels like a million! This has been like the longest year ever.

    I think life will just be changed forever ?? Because how do you just forget what happened?

    In time Iโ€™m sure?? Cause people miss normal… they miss life … they miss people and the way things were … and people took for granted the freedom of doing the simplest things

    Perplexing thought.

    Wonโ€™t last forever – but wonโ€™t be fast either.

    There have been a few bonuses to it, and of course many let downs

    Just so weird thinking not even a year yet!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ that part blow my mind cause feels like forever

      1. Yes totally … but I still would like a worldwide holiday every March – maybe a week off to commemorate and remember … commemorate the times we have had together and then remember we donโ€™t ever want another virus like this!!!! And then also remember what idiots we have as leaders and maybe not vote such jackasses in lol ๐Ÿ˜„โœŒ๏ธ
