I was let go before at a job and it was devastating

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Thursday, September 10, 2020, In : Coronavirus 
Because of coronavirus Covid-19, the economy has tanked and many are losing their jobs. People that I personally know have been laid off or let go from their positions.  They were hoping they would be spared from it but the inevitable happened. 

A couple of years ago, I was let go from a job and I did not see it coming. There was no warning, whatsoever, and I was getting complimented left and right from other people within and outside the organization. When I was let go, I was so devastated an...

Distance Learning for Fall for the Kids and Me

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Friday, July 31, 2020, In : Coronavirus 
(My makeshift desk below for online learning.)
makeshift deskDistance learning starts back again in a couple of weeks for my soon-to-be 1st grader. It's going to be his second go at this. We're happy to be learning but distance learning means parent involvement is crucial from 9AM - 2:30PM on school days with more live meetings every day this time. It means mommy is also one of his educators again and we're going to have to do this as a team. We've learned how to make it work better for my son during the la...

Macy's Delayed Delivery During Pandemic

Posted by on Sunday, July 12, 2020, In : Coronavirus 
I ordered 2 sports bras from on June 11, 2020 (over a month ago) and my package has not arrived yet. This is crazy.

I was expecting it to be maybe 2 weeks delayed because of the Covid-19 pandemic but over a month? I tried calling Macy's customer service toll free line separate times on 2 different dates but no one picked up when the automated line transferred me to a customer service representative. No customer service personnel right now guys! They are MIA. I am assuming that their ...

Ending of Phase 2 Reopening in SLO

Posted by on Sunday, June 14, 2020, In : Coronavirus 
Stating tomorrow, San Luis Obispo County will move into Phase 3 of reopening and today is the last day of phase 2. A lot has happened since my past post during phase 1. 

The kids are done with distance learning now so we have a bit of free time. I've notice a lot of tourists are here on the weekends at Pismo Beach too. Most of them were not wearing masks. I often wonder if they are refusing to wear one or if they just don't have one. See my DIY fabric face mask blog post.

During the week, all o...

Shelter at Home During Covid 19 Closures

Posted by on Sunday, March 29, 2020, In : Coronavirus 
We've just finished Week 2 of sheltering at home and we're starting to have a decent routine down. Surprisingly, my kids have not asked me to take them to the park or anything like that yet. It's also my husband's second week working from home so I think that they're just enjoying being able to spend more time with him, even if it means we're just playing at home.

Only one of my kids is old enough to go to school so I've only had to worry about homeschooling my 6 year old. His kindergarten tea...
