Monday Motivation

by - August 16, 2021

Good morning, friends. How was your weekend? Ours was spent preparing for the first day of school only to have our first day canceled for a tropical storm. Ol' Fred decided to follow nearly the same exact path as Hurricane Michael did back in 2018, but thankfully he never made it to hurricane status. I wasn't expecting them to cancel for just a tropical storm, but they didn't want to risk anything happening with the buses, and I respect that. So the first day of school will be tomorrow.

Of course, that means some shuffling of my schedule for today. I had a pretty big to-do list that will be basically cut in half because #workingathomewithkids, ya know? It's not a big deal, really, I just need to re-plan out my week.

In other sadder news, my aunt's boyfriend passed away from covid complications last week. He had some other health problems going on, too, but was only 56. That makes the second person I knew personally to die. The first happened last year, and he was my age. I also have a friend and former coworker who has been extremely sick from it but who is starting to show some good recovery.

Numbers are ticking up here again, even more so than last week. Our gymnastics place sent out a notice that they're restarting covid procedures this week, and while our school system is only strongly encouraging masks, our school itself is asking for them to be worn. I'm more worried about Alexis this year than I was last year, since this new variant is affecting more children, but I think - hope - that her teacher, school nurse, and I put together a pretty good plan. I want her to wear her mask as much as possible, but because she has asthma I have to be realistic about it.

Alright, I need to start crossing things off my to-do list. I hope you all have a great week!
