Cheers Shared last Christmas 2020

This year has been a roller coaster 🎢.   The pandemic really affected every norm but life goes on.   I’m sure everyone has been feeling the economic toll that Covid has brought.   I’m still grateful that none of us has gotten sick sick 🤒.   I mean we all got sick but we got better from home.
 Just like the past 15 years, we sent money to my family back home during Christmas.   I don’t send them cash regularly but  during the season of giving, hubby and I make sure to send them some.
This year, we tried to share some of our blessings to people that we think would really appreciate it.  We give each of our garbage collectors an envelope with cash and we also have one to our mailman.  They do their jobs no matter what the weather condition is,  so as a way of thanking them, we thought of sharing a little bit of cheer for them.

  
Our kids have also participated in some activities to cheer some people up during the pandemic.  My son’s class did a gift giving activity called “You’ve Been Jingled”.   I thought it was a really good idea, it gives the kids something to do to connect with their friends.
My daughter’s school have spearheaded an activity to spread some cheer to our elderly friends and healthcare workers at Serra Manor in Weirton and Genesis Healthcare Center in Follansbee through #Careavan.   
Covid might have taken out the norm of doing things but glad that we were still able to do things creatively.  The year  2020 bid goodbye and it's already the end of April but I am just posting this lol.   Life has been busy despite the pandemic.  I didn't think I would miss writing but I truly do.  I am glad, I am slowly picking it up again.  I still have a lot of catching up to do but hopefully I will get it all sorted out .

Pandemic Challenges

    Covid19 is such a pain in everyone's life.  It hinders so many things that people normally do.  I sure wish it's over already because  wearing mask in public places is really making my migraine worse.  During the months where my kids have to do cyber classes, I thought it would be easier since they don't have to go to school but it was  so hard for both of them especially to our son..  He started with a high A for his grade in Algebra but it slowly going downhill.
Aside from the online struggle, the kids also missed out on so many school activities.  Covid took out the fun for sure.  I am just glad that none of us got the virus.  I mean, we got sick when we went to DC for the March for Life but I don't think it was Covid.  I think we were too exhausted from the trip that my daughter and I did not feel great for a couple of days when we got back.
The good thing about their cyber school though is that, they don't have to get up early and they can do their lessons in their own desk or even in bed. My son's Chromebook was having issues so he had a hard time doing his homework. 
2020 was like a disaster, it wasn't a good memory for all of us.  I am just glad we survived it with having major sickness especially with my kids.
