My Five Favorite Things That Have Helped Me Cope During the Pandemic

Description (Dublin Core)

Although the pandemic has been rough, there are several activities that help keep me sane during our time at home. We all have to make the best of it, right? The following are five things we did to make the best of this crazy time:
1. We Facetime'd with our children and grandchildren two to three times weekly. Nana and Papa quickly got into a fun routine to help virtually put the granddaughters to bed.
2. We established Friday afternoon Zoom happy hours with friends. It turned out to be way more fun than we anticipated.
3. My husband I found some great Netflix shows that we binge watched together.
4. We took advantage of our extra free time to cook and eat together as family almost every night rather than a couple of nights a week due to busy schedules.
5. We love how restaurants and other establishments who previously did not deliver started using DoorDash. My family has definitely taken advantage of Baskin Robbins ice cream deliveries!

This past year has definitely been an interesting and probably much needed social experiment for our family!
