As you may already be aware, my husband tested positive for Covid-19 a few days ago after coming into contact with a contagious coworker several days prior. This coworker was unaware they were infected and contagious and went to work several days feeling healthy, but was in fact, a vector for the virus. Since Tuesday of last week, Neil and I have been isolating at home, and our kids have been since we received the results on Wednesday.
The first few days after the test came back were the most challenging for Neil health-wise, though this weekend has been the most challenging for me with the kids. There's been a lot of arguing about doing homework, having playtime outside (only in our backyard of course) and doing their regular jobs like putting away dishes, making their beds, and picking up after themselves in the communal rooms of our house. These jobs can produce some temper-tantrums at the best of times, but when you're stuck at home all the time unable to get away from annoying siblings and no time with your friends or running around on the playground working off steam, it's bound to make them more frequent.
