Pt. 11 - Not-complaints.

DAY 23 - April 6th, 2020

     One thing I am never doing in this situation is complaining. Some things are hard, for sure, but I feel incredibly fortunate and blessed through all of this and I try to always make that known. So while some of the things I'm about to say sound like downers, I promise I'm not taking any of them too seriously.

     We did get our Instacart order last night, and it was chaotic. The closer we get to the peak, the more worrisome and difficult things get and I try to be even more careful. We tried to stock up on a lot yesterday, so it was a big order and mindfully cleaning and putting it all away is stressful. I felt like I ran a marathon after. And it turns out that we were charged for something we didn't get. I think she was doing two shops at once and gave it to the other people. Who knows - maybe the other people needed it more. All it means for us is no diced tomatoes in our curry tonight, which is a bummer but for sure not the worst thing we could have missed out on. I can't believe we don't have any on hand.

     I've got like four Target packages and another small Instacart order in the wings in order to have a mostly normal Easter this weekend. It'll be different regardless, but I'm hoping it all gets here. I've also got my fingers crossed that school will give the kids a bit of a break for Easter. I was hoping for at least Good Friday and the day after Easter, but I don't think it's happening. Henry has an assigned work document for Friday. I can lighten it a little, but it looks like they still expect the kids to work. It would be nice to have more of a break from their weekday complaining and moaning, though.
