Hello my WP family.
I have been MIA here lately. I have gotten sooo busy.
It is the 4th quarter at work, our busiest time of the year. With the pandemic and beginning flu season, we have so much more to do than last year. More safety protocols to follow. More extra work.
Then when I am off from work, I have homeschooling that requires all-day commitments with young Snookums (8 years old). So during the times, he would be at school which would give me some free time to do my things, he is home ALL the time. So I never have a day off anymore really.
My 16-year-old is mostly self-sufficient and seldom requires a trip to school or to the store.
My 23-yr-old had a COVID scare at college, thank God it turned out to be negative!
My life goes like this:
- I work mostly Fri, Sat, and Sundays so that I can be there for online schooling. The online classroom requires that I/we constantly re-direct the wandering mind of a kid that thinks incessantly about building robots.
- The “kinks” pose some issues. Sometimes the screen goes dark. Or we log off because we cannot hear the teacher and she forgets to let us back in the zoom meeting. Then I have to call the school and ask the staff.
- So now I have the enviable titles of a full-time assistant teacher.
My days appear long and fleeting. I go out to work then I return to work at home. No rest in between…not complaining, I know many others have it worse than I.
I thank God I am well and all is well with us. I pray for everyone and we stand together in creating a path out of this nightmare that is 2020.
