During COVID we bought a house. It was obvious to me that while everyone was working or being homeschooled our current house did not provide enough space for all of us to live together in harmony. Well, not by my standards anyway. We had been looking for a while and I was really patient. We ended up buying this double story (two stories also below) with enough stairs that would make up for the gym membership cancellation. The boys are still sharing and the girls each get a room so all in all, we're doing pretty well. We had to get some new furniture and we're pretty settled in right now.

Hello from down under. We are all in some sort of isolation/quarantine here too. The cases in Australia are not as bad as Europe. I think also because it's just too bloody far to get all the way down here, lol. Plus it's the end of summer and we have not hit flu season yet. So end of March we were told to work from home.

Our local church - Our Lady of Lebanon Harris Park, has posted parishioner photos in the pews to get ready for Easter. It's going to be really strange this year not having the traditional huge masses and being able to celebrate with family. We've been 'attending' mass online on Sunday mornings.
