Hey out there. Lindsay Conley here. WOW! What a cluster the past few weeks/months have been emotionally. Some days our household is doing really well: we're singing, writing, reading, knitting, hiking (please check out 1000 Hours Outside), biking, cooking, building, and working. Other days we're struggling for space and air, falling into old familiar negative habits that do nothing but harken the return of depression and anxiety that lingers like a stray cat. And I don't like cats!
As I felt the pull of the stress from the cacophony of debate over our current pandemic, I made the very personal decision to peace out of facebook. While welcomemama.com will remain published, the FB page will be on an indefinite hiatus. Instagram will remain and serve as a great way to contact me if you find yourself in need of support resources.
I hope you will be able to still use the resource pages here. I will be working to update information in between homeschooling my 5 and 8 year old. If you can't find what you're looking for, please don't hesitate to email and DM through instagram.
For now, check out these links for decent information regarding the Novel Coronavirus.
