How’s everyone faring lately? Social distancing is easier for some of us than for others, but there’s no question that, over time, it’ll wear on us all. Even though I’m your run-of-the-mill dyed-in-the-wool introvert, it’s a struggle for me knowing that playgrounds (I have two kids who are home full time with me as I struggle to work full time as well), restaurants, movie theaters, and nail salons are ALL closed.
It’s a time of recalibration, for sure. We’re all trying to rediscover ways to spend our time. In some ways, it’s fantastic – more time with kids, more family dinners, more nature walks, and that kind of thing, but it’s a struggle, too. If you’ve been laid off, furloughed, or just have less work than you’re used to, it’s economically really weird, too. Slash, it’s just horrible.
You have probably already heard, but we had to cancel our April Girl’s Night Out event at the Mermaid Winery.
In all my years running the Girl’s Night Out program, it’s the first time we’ve ever had to do this. This is definitely one of those things that makes the whole pandemic really hit home. We’ve adjusted our regular way of doing things. I totally understand flattening the curve, and am certainly doing my best, but that’s not to say that it doesn’t come without sacrifice.
We hope to have our events up and running as soon as possible, but, you know as well as I do that there’s no definitive end in sight. I read the other day that it could last six weeks up to 18 months to really get this thing under control.
As soon as we have a new date scheduled, we’ll post it first on our Girl’s Night Out Facebook page so if you haven’t yet requested to join, please do so! We also try to share information and creative or irreverent content, just to keep our spirits up, too.
In the meantime, though, feel free to request copies of our books and free reports or give our office a call at 757-425-5200 if you need more information about an upcoming divorce or custody case. Stay healthy, friends!
