Well, our big plans for Spring Break went down the drain. Meaghan mentioned in our last post that we are big sports fans and we love to watch the NCAA Tournament during Spring Break. Those plans changed, obviously, as COVID-19 changed everyone's plans.
We did stay home and followed our local shelter in-place orders to stay safe and instead of watching basketball we binged a new series on Hulu and found some others on Netflix.
So we've been at home for more than a month now and working from home. But before our city put a tighter grip on things, we did run down the street to Home Depot and got some supplies because we wanted to use this time at home to get the nursery ready!
First we put together the crib some friends of ours gave us!
Then, we sanded down a dresser/changing station Meaghan found online!
Then, we painted the dresser!
It's a beautiful mossy green color that will go nicely with Meaghan's Peter Pan theme she wants! I need to get a new hinge for the drawer and then it is good to go.
This has been a challenging time for us to be at home. Meaghan teaches and so she can't see her students, and I have a role in another school district and I'm not getting to see students or go to their events anymore. Right now, I'm on a committee to figure out what we will do for graduation for our seniors.
We celebrated our anniversary this month. We weren't able to do our usual date night dinner and dessert, but thankfully we could order pick-up. So, we got dressed up and grabbed fajitas to-go. The greeters outside were so impressed that we dressed up even for to-go they threw in free dessert when we told them it was our anniversary!
While we are sad that the school year did not go as planned for our students, we are thankful for our health and that of our family members. We will keep checking off things to do as we continue getting the nursery ready and we will continue to pray you and wish you good health.
