Is this real life? Yes. Yes, it is.


If I had a dollar for every time I’ve wondered, “Is this real life?” over the past seven months, I would have a lot of money. Likewise if I had a dollar for every time someone has told me they’ve been worried about my mental health.  …thanks?

This is real life. This is our new normal. It sucks. But we’re going to be okay.

If I’ve learned anything during all of this, it’s that you just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Get through today, worry about tomorrow when it comes. Ask for help when you need it, offer help when you can. And there is good in the world.

That’s all for today. My oldest is chasing his little brother threateningly with an old-school tire gauge…

Is this real life? Yup. *sigh*
