Nurseries and schools are closed.
We have two weeks of holiday before we continue online distance learning.
My ex husband sent us a box via Amazon, full of soaps, Clorox, sanitizers and such. We were grateful even though we had those already.
I completed two online courses for tutoring and creating online classes and watched Microsoft tutorials for Teams.
Kids are still going out to do some exercise on the beach and jogging.
I went to The Post office and got the most beautiful postcard from Frankfurt.
Next day I went to Post Office and sent letters and postcards to family and friends.
Ex husband sent us a box from Amazon again. We were excited. I personally hoped to see some chocolates or sweets "for kids" inside. Those are my favorite.
But when we opened the box I had a mild shock attack. Inside was a big bottle of Clorox. Again! I sent message to ex saying that I will report him for mental abuse if he sends more Clorox.
Thanks God I am not living with him for years. Probably each time he reads news about virus he buys chemicals. I can imagine his entire building smelling on chemicals after he cleans his house. Once he combined chemicals when he was washing his bathroom, which resulted in chemical reaction and he ended up in hospital.
Online schooling started. Teachers are causing my stress. They want kids to go trough materials alone, learn it and finish assignment in 45 minutes and send it back to them. I complained and said that's not the way of distance learning. That's self-learning and teaching is missing there.
They reassured me that proper teaching will start after two weeks, as they are just revising now.
One teacher is insisting that kids send homework via Dojo message inbox. It took me 4 days to explain to him that parents and students have no such option given from Dojo platform, but only teachers. Fifth day he got it, so he told us we can send homework via e-mail.
Lockout was announced starting from the next day. I went to the Post Office as I was awaiting a parcel from my friend and letters/postcards from family. But P.O. Box was empty.
Next day we could not go out without permission at all. But I got sms from Post Office. I asked for permission to go to the Post but request was denied. That's not emergency enough.
I got angry with that decision and unfollowed authorities on social media.
After two days I got a call from The Main Post Office. They told me I can pick my parcel there. I went and took it. Thanks Post
But I couldn't send a card for Ramadan occasion as international delivery is not working anymore, until further notice.
Ex husband is sending constant messages about cleaning tips. He is asking his son how do we clean the floor, do we spray things from grocery before we bring them in, which type of cleaning product we put inside the water for disinfecting the house etc. etc.
I sent him a message: we let our cat pee on things that we bring from outside. Cat urine is the best disinfectant. He replied; NOT funny at all
He asked if we need anything. I said that we need some black chocolates and other sweets.
And that time he sent proper box of sweets indeed
He insisted to buy some food for us as well for "just in case" purpose. Before we used to order from online grocery but I was never satisfied with green products or meat products (nothing was up to my expectations so I closed app and never looked back), so I buy food myself and choose on my own.
After two days we got a big box full of groceries from Amazon. Inside were some good stuff and some 'bad' stuff that I would never buy unless we are starving and that's only left to eat.
Some canned poultry meat produced in 2017. Expiring this year
I opened and tried to give to cat a little but cat sniffed and left untouched. Our cat doesn't eat chemicals or anything unhealthy as well. Nutrition label on backside of the can says that one serving contains 52% of sodium
So I decided to cook bans and make Gravce Tavce dish without using salt at all.
Seeing canned meat inside the dish my son was avoiding it big time.
It would be much easier for him to find coronavirus inside the dish then that peaces of canned meat. So I offered a cat few peaces and it ate it all!
After seeing a cat eating he ate as well. We had a nice delicious dish with unhealthy food and we survived. It was time to make a nice healthy food with black seed oil and seeds to celebrate it.
We are inside the house for long enough and it is getting boring. We are playing Wii Fit and eating after it a little bit. A bit more. Kids turned the house into a theater. The Play "Tom and Jerry" plays every day.
I break plates to get some quiet times. And tea mugs as well.
If this lockout takes to long I will have nothing to eat from. Already I am using salad bowl for soup and chorba. I wonder if authorities will give me permission to go out if I ask to go "plates and mugs shopping"
I started to prepare for Ramadan. We have L shaped living room and it was always a challenge to arrange it properly. But since my sons can't go to mosque for prayers now I decided to arrange our own masjid inside the room's smaller part of L.
We pray in jama3a now.
It looks cosy and cat loves it as well. Soft prayer mats are ideal spot for cat to relax on.
My older son got carried with new 'imam' role and was to loud while praying Fajr. As if he swallowed a microphone and it stuck in his throat enhancing his teenage version of tenor voice.
Hopefully our neighbor woke up for prayer with his family too, as otherwise they might be disturbed.
