Dueling Darlings – Mar 2020

It’s time for the Dueling Darlings post!

Ooooh, today was a tough day. I’m sure everyone is in the same boat right now, with uncertainty associated with this virus. Lots going on at work for me as we try to figure out what’s next, the kids school got cancelled (earlier than I expected). It feels a little like “what’s next”?

I had my card for the Darlings half done and thought, “there’s now way I’m up to this today”. But…this month’s kit from Tami celebrated National Day of Happiness on March 20th. How could I let some little virus ruin National Day of Happiness???

So, my card is here.

I was going to do a Thank You card and then at the last minute decided I needed the “perk up” sentiment right now. Hope to pass this to a neighbor in the coming weeks.

So, what does make me happy right now? My family, my kids….and lego. I’m so grateful for a husband who takes such good care of our kids at home all day and will be extra busy with this added development. I had a great dinner alone with him on Friday and I’m grateful for that opportunity before things change further. My kids brought home fantastic report cards on Friday and they’re attitude through this makes life enjoyable. I”m so glad they get along so well, and while there will be times that they’ll argue, that friendship will carry them through this. And lego…I bought a lego set the other day and putting it together,  those clear steps, bring order to the chaos. I’m debating going through all the kids sets and reassembling them…because I can.

And, that’s it for this month. I look forward to seeing what the other team members make, as well as checking out the Dazzlers image. I’ll see you same time, same place next month.

And take care of one another, crafters. Much love.
