Dancing Out of March 2020

March was the weirdest and longest month. With covid-19 hitting most of us, I expect I won’t be the only one who feels like that…

Reading Challenge

⌘ I’m sure this was a weird month for everyone with covid-19 hitting the western countries fairly hard. In the Netherlands they decided to close down school in the middle of the month, including pre-school, until April 6th (now April 28th). So Merijn has been home. Most people have to work from home if possible.

⌘ Husband works at a supermarket and his job has been marked vital which amuses me. But yeah he has been working 4-5 days a week still.

⌘ Merijn has been having a hard time not having pre-school and searched very hard for some structure. We ended up choosing to use pictograms for a day structure and that has helped him. But he has regressed in certain behaviours because of all the stress (points down below) and change.

⌘ Unfortunately grandpa (fil) had a cerebral hemorrhage and that affected Merijn a lot too. At the end of the month he was admitted to a rehabilitation center to work on getting better. But overal he got extremely lucky with how much damage was done. We’re mostly worried about his eyes at this point.

⌘ So one can imagine that I have no idea what is up or down anymore. Things are all over the place and what is even normal?

  1. Great wrap-up article! I’ve come across so many new books/authors that I want to get aquatinted with now haha! Always love coming across wrap ups like these that are so beautifully put together! I’m a bit behind on it all seeing I haven’t been doing anything with book blogging for a while, but I’ll be getting back on track with everything now including leaving some replies from now on – because I love reading your blog!

  2. Ik heb het idee dat ik hier elke maand zeg dat ik hoop dat de volgende beter zal zijn voor jou en je gezin. Tot nu toe zonder al te veel effect. Wat een jaar is 2020 tot nu toe al geweest zeg. Maar ik blijf gewoon zowel voor julle als voor mezelf hopen dat het zo snel mogelijk mag beteren.

  3. You had a great reading month! I read City of Ghosts and Tunnel of Bones and enjoyed them enough that I will pick up book #3, which I think comes out this fall. I hope your April is going as well as it can and that COVID-19 hasn’t personally impacted you, your family, or friends.
