Note from Nicole ~ COVID Got Me

By Nicole Donnelly

Do you ever have a week where you feel like you're you're just anxious or miserable; cranky or stubborn. We all have them.

COVID got me last week and while I am on the mend, it's still a struggle with the lingering side effects. I am trying to manage it; getting in workouts when I can because I know it's good for my body and my head. I am fitting in work before kids wake up in the morning, while they're at school and after they go to bed. I am trying to have fun with my kids - playing with them and taking them to the park. But also remembering that I need to take time for my marriage and myself.

It's tough to be a parent. We are always so busy. So tired. So frustrated. We're a waitress. A chauffeur. A personal chef. An alarm clock. We're parents and friends. And sometimes, we're drowning.

But we're all doing the best we can for our kids, ourselves and our families. So rock on, you guys. You're doing an awesome job!

Have a great weekend all!
