I didn’t pay a second of attention to the news today. Or Twitter. Or politically-minded Facebook friends.
Instead I worried about screen time. I painstakingly built a criss cross crash. I watched my daughter marvel at fast toy cars crashing into one another. I had a few drinks earlier than I would’ve on other days. I took my kid in the woods. I looked up beginner sewing projects on pinterest. I learned that pillbugs aren’t bugs, but actually crustaceans.
In other words, I holed up inside my house in the middle of the woods and enjoyed my family. Which honestly was far better than anything else going on outside of us.
