Today starts week nine of quarantine or whatever you want to call it. Is it really quarantine if I go out for a walk every day? Today I even went to the gardening shop and got some stuff to plant in our window boxes this weekend. I told Drew exactly what I want for Quarantine Mother’s Day, and part of what I want is to plant the window boxes on our deck – either with the enthusiastic participation of the whole family, or, if that is not possible, then I want to be left in peace to enjoy planting by myself, preferably with a Bloody Mary. Whichever seems most doable is what I want. How are you other moms hoping to spend this strange Mother’s Day? I hope everyone has as fab of a weekend as possible under the circumstances!

Work From Home Is Here to Stay (and I, personally, think that’s a good thing – for our environment and our mental health…provided the kids go back to school eventually and people have the option of working in-person with their colleagues at least part of the time). How would you feel if working from home at least part-time became a post-pandemic norm?
