IWSG – Positive Thoughts

6a7f5-insecure2bwriters2bsupport2bgroup2bbadge

Good morning and happy April. Seriously is it a new month. 2020 has been a year man, and we’re just 4 months in. I’m tired. LOL Since the world is collectively on fire, I decided to do something different for this IWSG post.

I hope everyone is hunkered down and in good health. I’m not made to be around anyone 24/7 including he who I married and those I gave birth to, but alas that is the current situation. Only a mild case of cabin fever kicking in.

It’s seriously feeling like we’re in a bad outtake of The Mummy. Time to scream “you must never read from the book” though it appears someone had. Until Brendan Fraser and Oded Fehr show up to save us, let’s start a positivity train.

Not writing related, just all the good things that remain bright spots in these troubling times.

Sure, my family is driving me slightly batty, but there are here and healthy. My extended family is all in good spirits and we talk more now than we probably did before.

I have an amazing community of friends. Yeah, they live in my computer LOL, but I talk to them daily. We chat about all things, not just writing and we help support and keep each other from falling into the abyss of negative thoughts.

My pups are getting extra love and only grumble about it sometimes. They can get quite attitude-y when they want to be. They are loving so many people home all day since normally it would be me and I can only give so much attention to the lot of them.

My husband is keeping me supplied with emergency chocolate. The man knows how to keep me calm-ish. Like I said, I’m not built for 24/7 togetherness. Only 2 meltdowns so far. That is a huge positive, especially considering we’re doing the homeschool thing.

Speaking of homeschooling, my county has been great so far. They have been providing free lunch to the students which is so helpful. And they make it easy to get by having the buses do delivery.

We are in strange times. The best we can do is to be kind to our fellow human. Wash your hands. And stay home as much as you can.

Let’s keep this train going. In the comments, post one positive thing happening for you right now.

The awesome co-hosts for the April 1 posting of the IWSG are Diane Burton, JH Moncrieff, Anna @ Emaginette, Karen @ Reprobate Typewriter, Erika Beebe, and Lisa Buie-Collard!

 

Until next time

    Dogs do seem to be winners in this. We live opposite a liittle park and see them getting plenty of walks and attention. It’s nice to know there are some upsides.

    My daughter’s dog is hiding under the bed and doesn’t want to go on anymore walks. With 3 kids home and only allowed outside to walk the dog, the poor dog has been walked to exhaustion.
    On a positive note I scored a 4 roll pack of toilet paper, I was down to 1/2 a roll and anxiety was setting in.
    Stay healthy and safe!

    Definitely some positives for today! Yes, please. My positive is that we took our tomcat on a walk around our neighborhood yesterday and he walked with us for almost a mile. And spent the rest of the walk on my husband’s shoulders. It was the cutest thing I’ve seen in days 🙂
