The Corona Diaries Week 33 - The Texting Intensifies

(I'm writing this on November 8. It is a recap of the week of October 26 - November 1.)

I texted A LOT. Thank the stars I had that to do otherwise I would have been going insane. The cats helped keep me grounded. Mr. Biscuit helped and hindered around my desk.

He also entertained from afar as he is learning how to navigate the fence.

Willoughby is a bit more civilized in her desires.

More Halloween Fun - we had our usual weekly park play time on the Sunday before Halloween. There were costumes and masks and a pinata and cookies.

Harper had originally said she would be Hermione again, but then made this Cat Costume from found items in her room just for the park party. Cute!

Tom very kindly sent Harper a Halloween gift:

But for the Friday before Halloween, Harper did revert to the Hermione Costume.

The last three Halloween things we did were on actual Halloween. First we went to the mini Halloween drive through (mentioned at the end of this blog post) then we made Spooky Hot Dogs! They are supposed to look like mummies...but uh, oh well.

Lastly, we told Harper she could trick or treat in the house (between Kurt's office and my office) if she changed into various costumes. She kind of did!

First up: Hermione:

Then Hedwig the Owl:

Then she came as Mr. Biscuit!

And then as a flowery ghost....!

Then she and we were DONE with Halloween. I think we had more Halloween this year than any year previously!

There had been a bit more art from Harper this week. Starting with a thank to Tom for the above Halloween Lego gift.

Masks on!

I love getting these notes when I'm busy or on the phone. I love that she draws her own life (zoom class).

A thank you note to Grace for a little Halloween fun.

And then a zombie! Just for fun.

She also started a new art class after school on Fridays. Clay modeling. Super cute!

Crazy busy as I was with texting toward the end of the week, I did enjoy making breakfast for Harper one morning.

One night I was too busy texting to sit down to diner so Kurt and Harper made a plate for me to have later. It was very sweet.

This is how I was feeling over the weekend whilst texting and leading/moderating in the group. It was very stressful and exhausting. I estimated I worked 6-8 hour days then it ramped up to 12 hour days over the last weekend. At this point I was still very very very nervous and filled with dread.

Thankfully, we know the outcome...!!!
