I found a bunch of cool writing prompts on Pinterest to keep Ella engaged for homeschool but let’s be honest, I also love the heck out these kinds of things too, and now more than ever we need fun little posts like these to keep our minds off of the usual nightmare.
I found this little graphic and thought this might be just enough to take you away from it all for a half-hour journey.
Music is one of my most favorite coping mechanisms as well as what I qualify as self-care, so I am calling myself your therapist for the day and writing you a prescription for more cowbell.
Er, more music.
