Got the quarantine crazies? Believe us, we get it! The kids are stir crazy, you’re stir crazy, even the dogs are stir crazy. I’ve been trying to focus on the positive side of this and finding the silver lining. Remember when we used to pray for three day weekends, or extra time to knock out that project, read that book you keep putting off, or make that meal for your family that seems too much for busy weeknights? While we do have *much* more time at home than we were wishing for, try to use this time to check some of those items off your list! When things are back in full swing again, (and they will be), you will look back on this time and be grateful. Check out this list of activities if you need some ideas for you and the whole family!
