Michelle Obama is just like the rest of us and trying to find a balance from being at home all the time now because of stay-at-home orders during the coronavirus pandemic.

During a phone call with Ellen DeGeneres this afternoon, the former First Lady opened up about what she’s been filling up her days with and how she’s thankful for her family and health during this time.

“Ya know, we’re just trying to, like, structure our days,” Michelle shared about her daily activities. “I mean, everybody’s home. The girls [Malia and Sasha] are back because colleges are now online. So they’re off in their respective rooms doing their online classes and I think Barack is — I don’t know where he is. He was on the phone on a conference call. I just got finished with a conference call.”

She continued, “We’re just trying to, ya know, just keep a routine going. But we also got a little Netflix and chilling happening.”

Michelle also hopes everyone understands that if they are healthy, they’re lucky to have that during this time period.

“Be grateful for what you have and be ready to share it when the time comes. Because that’s really what it’s all about,” Michelle says. “Now we’re just happy that we’re together and everybody is healthy and safe — who cares about the other stuff?”

Dixie Chicks On Being The First Targets Of 'Cancel Culture': 'It Can Ruin People’s Lives'

Dixie Chicks make a special appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Monday (March 16), and open up about their comeback.

The ladies – Martie Maguire, Emily Robison and Natalie Maines – chat about their hiatus from music and what it was like to be among the first celebrities to feel the impact of “cancel culture.”

“I think we were one of the first people to feel that cancel culture,” Natalie tells Ellen. “What we said back then, or what I said back then, would not even be a thing today because it was really mild compared to what people say today.”

“But you know, on one hand everyone’s got this platform where they can say whatever they want to say,” Natalie continues. “But on the other hand this platform can move really quickly and ruin people’s lives.”

Later, the Dixie Chicks play “Who Would Natalie Rather?” to help their bandmate find a potential suitor, and hit the stage for a special performance of the title track off their first studio album in 14 years, “Gaslighter.”
