Are We There Yet? Week 5

This week, there were no injuries in the Len household so it was pretty uneventful. Before I get to the new entertainment ideas, I’ll share what some have learned during their stay-at-home. To protect privacy, I won’t share our client’s full name, but thank you, Betty! 

  • Half of us are going to come out of this quarantine as amazing cooks. The other half will come out with a drinking problem. 
  • I used to spin that toilet paper like I was on Wheel of Fortune. Now I turn it like I'm cracking a safe. 
  • I need to practice social-distancing from the refrigerator.
  • PSA: every few days try your jeans on just to make sure they fit. Pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom. 
  • Homeschooling is going well. Two students suspended for fighting and one teacher fired for drinking on the job. 
  • I don't think anyone expected that when we changed the clocks we'd go from Standard Time to the Twilight Zone 
  • This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her cat. It was obvious she thought her cat understood her. I came into my house, told my dog..... we laughed a lot. 
  • Quarantine Day 5: Went to this restaurant called THE KITCHEN. You have to gather all the ingredients and make your own meal. I have no clue how this place is still in business. 
  • I'm so excited—it's time to take out the garbage. What should I wear?
  • Classified Ad: Single man with toilet paper seeks woman with hand sanitizer for good clean fun.
  • Day 6 of Homeschooling: My child just said "I hope I don't have the same teacher next year."
