How’s Your Apocalypse Going?

Just checking in to see how you are doing these days. Are you dressing up in costumes to take the trash out and hanging out in your PJs? Are you getting up everyday and getting ready like you are going to see the world? Are you helping your kids learn from home while working your full time job? Are you essential and hitting the streets everyday so the rest of us can stay well?

I’m sure everyone’s days look a little bit different. I have a ninth grader that we were already homeschooling so his days aren’t looking too much different aside from tutorial classes on Zoom. He is making his breakfast each day. This morning scrambled eggs and toast.

My senior though. Things look much much different for her. No prom, no wind ensemble or jazz band concerts, etc. We are still scheduled to go back to school at the end of this month so we wait in limbo to see if she will have a graduation ceremony or not.

For both my kiddos it is likely their church camp will be cancelled this summer. But we wait to see to see if that will be the case.

My hubs is working from home and we are very thankful that he is able to do that. I did ask if he needed to commute home the other day by taking a walk around the block. Aside from almost falling through a wall we just had drywalled he is doing pretty good with being home. His department had actually started working from home two days a week I think at the beginning of the year.

As for me, both of my jobs as a substitute teacher and as an instructional coordinator are tied to the schools so I am out of work for the moment. I am getting a lot of reading done. I have cooked a lot. Note to self…laying off white flour and sugar for lent during an apocalypse is a terrible idea. I’m not hoarding bacon people!

We have a friend who lost both parents to this virus and our hearts are breaking for his family.

I know this is such a weird time for all of us. Stay safe and healthy and wash your hands!
