Love in the time of Coronavirus

Love in the time of Coronavirus

  Love in the time of coronavirus, is a rapidly developing conversation among those sequestered away with our partners. I mean, when was the last time you spent 24/7 together with no break? We both work from home anyway, but my husband usually travels every couple of weeks, so 24/7 is new to us too. To add to this, we live in France three months of the year for our work, and we got here just a few weeks before everything came to a standstill, leaving us stranded in France until the end of May. I know, I know, France right? But I’m missing my own kitchen and all my equipment, and my mountains where I could at least be out wandering. Here, we are on strict lockdown. Grocery, exercise and doctor only, with one caveat, you have to do it all alone! That being said, however, at least we are safe, and possibly safer here than we would be in the USA where it seems peeps are slow to take this   seriously. I hope all of you are staying safe from the virus, but I thought maybe I should share some tips on keeping your partnership safe. By the way, these work with your kids too, and for single parents alone with kids. Here goes with some Love in the time of Coronavirus ideas: 1. Hug each other.  I mean seriously hug, till you feel each other relax. Physical contact is important for our well being. Put the bear back in hug! 2. Share the workload.

Hello, It’s Me!

Hello, It’s Me!

Dear Beautiful RAgers, Hello, it’s me and I’m back. Hopefully you haven’t forgotten being subscribed to this blog. I disappeared almost two years ago after posting a guest blogger. That post appeared on March 12, 2018. Two weeks later, on the day my next post would have published, my oldest son unexpectedly died. Needless to say, my blog was the last thing on my mind. Last year, I was contemplating working on my blog again. I went to update my plugins and the whole site went white. However, two days later, my father died. I never came back to find out what went wrong. As I approach the two year anniversary of my son’s death, I have written a long post about my experience and grief. It is far too long for a blog post, so if you would like to read it, please follow this link: Losing Shawn I am excited to be back. There is lots to tell you about, new ideas to share, and events to think about, including those big zero ending birthday years. I hope you will continue to come along for the ride. As we all hunker down to beat the Coronavirus, this is a good time to think, read, write, and just be. I’m in France and we are on complete lock-down. We can only go out for the grocery, doctor visit, or exercise. Let’s keep each other’s spirits up. In reference to the link in this post, if you, or anyone you know is experiencing grief, please share this with them. If you need someone to talk to, reach out, I’m here. Feel...
