Sequestered with Teens; Day 10
Today we hit day ten,
still locked in our household pen.
The governor extended the call to Stay ’til May.
How will I keep these teens at bay?
Ayden says he’s tired of sleeping,
Alexis finished 500 pages of reading.
Jesse, Phoenix, and I all had to work,
A privilege it is, definitely a perk.
The day was neither good, nor bad,
A tad bleak, gray, and a little sad.
Our lives in slow chaotic plunder,
The only norm; nighttime slumber.
Wheels are turning, plans being made,
a new-norm schedule needed for this brigade.
So many thoughts swirling in my mind,
How to stay safe, stay sane, a balance we must find.
When to give in, When to say No
To be a parent is both friend and foe.
Tomorrow is Friday, what can I say?
Hey Hey Hey
