Day 5: Trump got his border wish. I got ants in my pants.

March 18, 2020

I thought I yelled a lot yesterday...

The Canada-US border is officially closing to tourists and non-essential travellers. Auto factories are shuttering. Airlines are grounding themselves until July. The Feds are doling out billions they don't have to keep the money moving and keep food on tables...and we survived another day in isolation. Barely.

Day 5 was a gloomy - put your feet up - let them entertain themselves - let the hard-working Dad cook the burgers - let the kids plate their own food - kind of day;

It wasn't a good idea.

We didn't make it out of the house until 6pm because the kids' rooms had to be clean first. And if you're going to make a request/threat (definitely a threat), you'd better follow through, right? Ugh! It's so hard to be a hard-ass. I have a sore throat, but it's more likely from screaming at our never-listeners than Covid-19.

Even though I felt more like drop-kicking my offspring than facilitating activities, we stuck to our promise of getting outside everyday and walked the neighbourhood after dinner. Sprinted is more like it. You would too if a 6'5 dude with a canon for an arm was hucking snowballs at you.

When they weren't dodging ice-bombs, they nabbed a few more clovers for our Shamrock Hunt collection. Our neighbours are pretty awesome. ❤️
