My parents are on their way down for a visit/relief mission (for us) and I'm so excited. I need to vacuum so the house looks slightly less disastrous. Munchkin is SO excited to see them. I'm so glad we live within driving distance and that they've been quarantining safely so this is even possible.

Omg I came here to post this. If anybody ever wanted to visit Pittsburgh I feel like this would be a great AirBnB house.

I cannot talk you out of this because I think it's a great idea. I might bring some disinfectant spray/wipes with me I guess and wipe down surfaces like door handles and light switches first thing, but 3+ days between guests sounds reasonable and I think an escape for everyone's mental health is a good thing. If you like the cabin rental, send me the info 😬

My ballet career didn’t last long. I think I was 5 or 6 in this photo?

I got the day off! I slept in, Mr. CB brought up breakfast and coffee, I went for a run, took a luxuriously long shower, and am now knitting and watching Middleditch & Schwarz and cackling. We're going to have dinner all together and with Mr. CB's mom later but I am loving the lack of responsibility. I may go out back in a bit and pull some weeds and throw the ball for Archimedes.

Seconding this. Parents can't schedule their kid's meltdowns. I don't think there's too much you can do in this situation besides getting them some cupcakes or cookies or something and just acknowledging that it sucks right now.

I’m thinking of starting a little garden (onions, zucchini, strawberries?) but I know literally nothing. Even the “gardening for dummies” book was not basic enough for me. I also want to plant a blueberry bush, but again, I am so ignorant. What are you growing?

Not a movie but the Uncle Iron & Prince Zuko relationship in Avatar: The Last Airbender is so good. And really, that show should be required viewing for everyone anyway.
