I’ve been waiting for the US/Canada border to open back up so I can go and visit my girlfriend, Kate, Not her real name, and hang out for a weekend or a week. It’s getting pushed back, again, to the end of July. So we decided to go back to Hawaii for 3 weeks and enjoy ourselves. We are going to leave some time Friday. I wanted to leave Friday night late but the girls think it’s a better idea to leave in the afternoon because of the time change and the kids. I guess.
Brenda and Lynn have moved back in to continue being my nannies. They have been home for a little while and decided maybe with Sarah being here, with me doing it all on my own, it would be a good idea. I was fine. I could use some help, yes, but I was really managing it. It wasn’t that hard. The hardest part was trying to get everyone ready for bed. That part was trying to do too much all at once. I’m happy they are back. I’m happy to have them under contract for the next few years. We are going to do this the right way. The other thought is, homeschooling. I may need them to help me if the schools do not open back up this year.
Sarah is here. She’s doing great with her baby. They are both getting used to each other. That baby is cute af. She’s precious. And my little Sky is getting to be a big girl. She finally said DA DA. It melted me. She’s reallllly close to walking. She has been lifting herself up and she tries to take steps holding onto my fingers. She’s almost there. Her 1st birthday is coming up and I know she’s going to grow up super fast now. After 1 it all goes fast. Look at my twins, already 5! It’s crazy.
I’m doing good. A few minor family issues but we are doing okay. Work is going well. I’ve been spending a lot of time on my yard this year. I wanted to have our first spring be a full success and a smooth summer. That didn’t work out because we weren’t home. I’ve been trying to catch up on all of it with the baby in tow. Sky loves to be outside and I only do an hour or so per day before it gets hot out. The kids LOVE hanging out in the swimming pool. It really is a lot of fun. We are trying to keep our spirits up during this whole 2020 is a dumpster fire mess.
The other issue is living in Denver, I can’t take my kids out and feel comfortable. These people don’t give a sh** about the pandemic. I don’t understand that but not my business. What is my business is keeping my kids safe and healthy. In Hawaii we can actually mask up/glove up and go out and enjoy all of the islands. I just had a negative COVID test and I got the additional paperwork so I will not have to quarantine 14 days. Everyone else will. Sarah had a negative test too but not within the past 30 days so she has to stay in. She’s not very happy about that. 2 weeks on the compound, after that we can explore. This time we will. There are so many places I want to show my kids. It’s going to be a fun 3 weeks. If the border continues to get delayed we will stay longer. I joke I may not even come back to Denver this year, but there is a chance. COVID is not going away. It’s not getting any better at all.
I hope everyone is doing their best. Please always wear a mask outside. It’s important to not get sick, spread it around, and drag it home to your kids. Go out in public, but with a mask on. Live your life the way you want, but consider you live amongst other people. Not all of them are as healthy as you. That’s why you need to wear a mask. It’s to protect yourself.
Have a great start to your summer guys! Prays for Kate’s grandma. She had a minor health setback (NOT Covid) and she could use some prayers. Also to my buddy Joel. I miss seeing him on Tv. He’s a sweet guy. Love you guys! Stay safe!
