The virus that is going around is taking it’s toll on everyone. It is affecting absolutely everyone in some form or another. There are tons of meme’s going around to try and keep things light and not so dark and gloomy. This is not to make light of what is happening but merely to try and elevate the stress that people are feeling. Today we went on a family walk. Rich and Peyton went one way as they were going on a longer walk and Walker came with me.
Yesterday consisted of homemade broccoli cheddar soup, sneaking white chocolate chips, bear hunting and watching the wildlife outside. Not to mentioned the political bashing our president is taking. It’s getting old and tiresome. Two people can hear the exact same thing yet come away with two totally different interpretations. Sometimes you just have to walk away from those that are constantly bringing others down.
We haven’t gotten into any kind of routine because I am hoping this isn’t the new normal. This too shall pass. It may take days, weeks or even possibly months. It’s harder to keep track of the days when everyone is home every… single… day. We are adjusting as everyone else is and taking one day at a time. The days are running together and we were just notified today that school will be closed until at least April 20th. Spring break has been minimized and distance learning will begin next week. The kids have been doing their daily supplemental work to try and keep up with their subjects.
Rich was notified today that two co-workers from the courts he works in tested positive for the virus. The last day Rich was exposed was the 13th so we are almost at the 14 day mark and he has no symptoms yet so we are thankful and hope it stays that way.
This particular song states my sentiments at this point. I don’t have everything I want but have everything I need. Take a listen. I promise it is worth your while.
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.
