Day 28: Coping with Always Being Indoors

Our Kids are Affected

People are talking about “The New Normal.” There is no normal only abnormal. I can tell my 11 year old daughter is sad about being in lock down. I wish there was something I could do. She’s been talking about hoping that we’d be able to go outside before her birthday. She also misses her grandparents on my wife’s side.

A Change in Mood

My daughter’s grandfather participated in a Zoom call along with other members of the family that temporarily got her into a better mood. This isn’t like her. She’s always been the burst of energy. Excited about planning Family Game Night. Always coming up with some amazing experiences she wants to get the family to participate in.


Let’s hope that a vaccine and medicine is developed soon so we can all go back to “Normal Normal.”
