Oh, Hey, I’m Getting the COVID Test Tomorrow

[Dutch Lock Down Day Two Hundred Fifteen]


The twins have had a cough for ten days. And a runny nose.

Nothing else.

But first the news:

But that’s the rule – if you have two (or more) of the coronavirus symptoms, then you have to go home until you’re symptom free for twenty four hours.

The twins were sent home last Monday.

They’ve had normal temperatures, no throat pain, no trouble breathing and zomg SO MUCH energy this whole week.

They’re fine.

And how do I know they’re fine?

Because I have whatever they have.

Phlegm, coughing and sporadic sneezes.

And I’m … fine.

There Was SO MUCH Blood

[Dutch Lock Down Day Two Hundred Five]

I’m oke.

Everyone in the house is oke.

But not everyone in the house WAS oke.

But first the news:

The summary sometimes go before the cut. Boy Twin fell off his balance bike and busted his lip. I picked him up, told Girl Twin to get onto his bike, fast walked home, cleaned him up, settled him down, and when the adrenaline left, well, I feel like jello.

Also Not a Good Alarm Clock

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Seventy Two]

This so totally going to be one of those rambling posts, y’all. Cause DAMNIT Boy Twin got up at three thirty and wouldn’t go back to sleep for an hour. My alarm went off at four thirty and I just whimpered. I wasn’t asleep. I wasn’t even in bed. It was oh so totally justified had I gone back to sleep until eight ish.

But, no, we’re doing the five o’clock wake up thing.

I’m going to go to sleep SO easily tonight.

But first the news:

Also, can I go back to sleep NOW?

How about now?

Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Thirty One

[Please Note: I Am REALLY Sleep Deprived]

I was on my way to bed when I realized I hadn’t blogged and I blog every day and so I’m here and I’m falling asleep as I write.

But first the news:

Damnit, Dutch.

So basically our numbers are creeping back up, but people are REALLY sick of lock down / corona rules.

Good times.

Around the end of May 2018 this site was hacked and since I had poured my heart and soul into it and had six month old baby twins and NO BACKUP, I let it go.

Sort of.

I rebuilt the site, started writing again and kept… stopping. Cause MAN that hurt to be hacked. To not have backups. To lose ALL that writing.

I had been writing daily back then, too.

It took me a while to get back to that habit.

But first the news:
