The next day I talked about how I was now a homeschool mom. I am sure a lot of people heard that school was shutdown for a couple of weeks and decided to just give the kids a two week vacation. I didn't do that. Probably a good thing too. It took a few days to get into a school routine, but we did it, and we did some cool things. I taught Travis things with money that no one has been able to teach him. https://fieldofdolls.blogspot.com/2020/03/now-im-homeschool-mom.html
This past year has been incredibly weird. That is really the best description for it. We went from packed hallways and seeing people we work with to nearly empty (or completely empty) hallways and hardly seeing anyone in person. We went from going to visit people to not being able to visit. No travel, no concerts, no movies, no live shows.
But really, as weird and as hard as this last year has been we got things that we didn't have before. We got photo shows back, but in a new format that is a better fit for the modern world. We can show with people from all over the world, very easily. People have gotten clever with their visiting. We video chat now, which means I can "see" people I have never gotten to see. Or rarely get to see. I really hope when the world gets back to normal that we still have cool photo shows, those have been really excellent! Speaking of that, my next one opens for entries on the 19th. We are getting close! I also hope that Zoom parties continue. That has been so great! I love being able to hang out with people that live too far away to visit.
So yeah, the world has been weird, but a lot of good things have happened. I have written about a lot of them over the past year and I don't want to repeat everything now. Things are getting slowly back to normal. And I am still hoping that people will be just a bit less gross when this is all done.
