So after talking with @anakinfansince1983 I thought it would be helpful to just to start a thread that was kinda away from all the news of the day (which change by the second) and be kinda a place to just kinda free flow whatever is on your mind including being a emotional support for each other or in other words. I guess just a place to get away from the news as it is not going to get any better for quite awhile now and share experiences, thoughts, support, ideas etc. I guess I will kick it off with this that for @Runjedirun along with others who have kids and are struggling out of ideas to keep your kids entertain and learning, Cincy Zoo is doing a "virtual tour" everyday about different animals: https://www.youtube.com/user/CincinnatiZooTube/videos Our older boys love it as we done an animal a day as we watch about it and then look up more about it online. My daughter as not been a big fan of them as much (though she started to watch it today more) therefore we been watching some of the virtual tours they have from the Shedd since she loves the "fishies". I can shall more ideas as well including my wife and I have set up a classroom for them and we turn our spare room into "our office" since will be both working from home until the school year ends which we also designated as the only place will talk about stuff like bills, what is going on etc. Every place else we want to make stress free for the kids sake and frankly our own. We understand this will go on for weeks and weeks therefore no sense in stressing out wondering when it will end because we know it won't be for a long time. Just take it two weeks at a time like Fauci says and go from there. Anyways I have so many random thoughts I could fill up an entire board but really just wanted to kick start this thread as a place (if it's okay with the moderators) to just escape which brings me to my last thought. Our state has now closed for two weeks therefore my wife and I talk earlier. We pretty much decided that we are not going to pay attention to the news other then look for alerts on our phone when it comes to local announcements (in case the groceries store change their policies) because we been already been in self hunker down mode since school got out Friday and other then to grab my parents some stuff (mainly their medicines and a few other items for them and us which in their case I left at the doorstep) I have not left the house other then to take a walk. I been really struggling with my mental health because of this since I am a person who wants to go out and help in anyway I can but for right now I being told to hunker down and stay home so that is what I am doing. So other then checking for local alerts we are going to stay off the news basically for awhile or try to. It's not going to get any better and we are just going to focus on being strong for our kids and being support for people who need it since were in good shape all things being equal. I feel so guilty about this though as I know so many others cannot do this right now but I feel like this will keep us all healthier and that is what we need right now. I honestly feel selfish that I am not doing more. Should I?
