Like many of you, my family’s world greatly changed in early March when local governments started urging people to stay home due to the growing spread of COVID-19. My family has always taken it very seriously and because I have a rare health condition, we will be staying in long after others start to adjust to a new normal. Today, I want to talk about five things that I can not wait to do once I finally do get to start leaving the house on a regular bases.
We have an October 2020 trip to Walt Disney World and right before this all started, we had planned to take a totally random road trip over the summer. We had also planned to try to sneak in an adult only trip to Niagera Falls. At this point, it is likely that the summer travel will not happen, but I’m crossing my fingers that our fall trip will still go as planned.
Go Grocery Shopping
I have not been grocery shopping since the very beginning. I never thought it would be something I missed doing, but it is!
Have A Picnic At The Park
Our state has not closed all parks, but playgrounds are closed, so going to a park would be stressful for my toddler. When we can safely play, I want to take enough food and sunscreen to spend an entire afternoon at one of our favorite parks.
Enroll Our Toddler In Dance Class
My daughter is finally old enough to take part in a structured dance class and they are all closed! She has always loved to dance, so I am using this time to look at different studios online and pick one for the fall session.
Spend Time With Friends and Family
I saved the best for last! I miss all of my family and friends so badly. As our state eases up on restrictions on gatherings, we will likely start to see family who do not have jobs that have a high risk of exposure. It sadly may be much longer before we get to see other family and friends.
I’d love to hear from you! What are some things that you are excited to do once this is all over?
