COVID-19 Quarantine – Day 7


And the wait continues. Kids are keeping up with their school work. Trying to get them up at a decent hour and not sleep too late. They have the weekends for that. Trying to keep a sense of normal (whatever that is) in the house. Weather is still a little on the chilly side but able to get outside for a bit to get some fresh air. We all know we haven’t seen the worst of it yet. Hang tight for this too shall pass.

COVID-19 Quarantine – Day 6

Hearing schools may be closed for the rest of the school year. Sadly I still hear and see certain people not abiding on the quarantine. They are still celebrating their spring break on the beaches in Florida. They don’t get it and probably never will.

There are still adults complaining about our president. I wonder if these same adults have ever had a teacher, a boss or any other person they didn’t like. Did they behave this badly then? Did they throw temper tantrums like a toddler? Yet these same people tell their children even when they have a teacher they don’t like to just do the work and do what you have to do. So…. I ask why are they not banding together as Americans first and support our leaders? People do not have to agree with me but I will expect them to be tolerant.

COVID-19 Quarantine – Day 5

Though it was a nice sunny day it was still pretty cold. We hunkered down for another unproductive day. As of today school is delayed until March 31st although be strongly believe it will be much longer. The teenagers are beginning to get a little anxious yet they are keeping up with their work for school. It’s not quite the same learning from a google document as it is with the teacher and classmates.

For Walker he is still awaiting college decisions. So the anxious level is higher than normal. These kids have worked so hard and to see their senior year end like this just doesn’t seem fair. They are taking in stride…. not happily but in stride nonetheless.

Walker misses his friends immensely but they have been watching movies on-line as a group so they can chat and have conversations as though they were watching in the same room.

So we wait and wait to find out what the next move it for the schools and work.
