It’s day 3,000 of quarantine and I just finished trying to explain to my partner how I’m already having mixed emotions about life returning to normal in a few short-long weeks. Realistically, I’ve been working from home since March 16th. It’s been a weird few weeks. It’s like your starring in your own version of […]Read More Parental Angst and Quarantine
