In the last week, the world has changed so much. Parents are working from home while trying to home school their kids at the same time. People are sporting toilet paper earrings and kids are going on virtual field trips.

You know one thing I didn’t realize that I would miss? School lunch.

Seriously, having to come up with something for lunch every single day is draining. I dread it every morning!
