Wow. I hit the pandemic wall hard this week. Like “wham splat” kinda hard.
On Monday, I put in a 12-hour day, and none it was paid work. I was dealing with special ed parenting during COVID, a kid transitioning out of high school to a yet-to-be-determined place, speech writing, speech giving at a school board meeting, unpaid professional development, and the usual chores just keeping people fed. The rest of the week, I’ve been saving my energy for paid employment and recovery time.
Some links for y’all:
Everybody is talking about the pandemic wall.
Pretty stunning testimony at the Trump impeachment, no?
I’m very interested in Romney’s child tax credit.
Lately, I’ve been doing vacation fantasizing. I’m wishing we were back in Scotland, so I will probably watch the new TV show, Men in Kilts. I’m also a huge fan of the Instagram page, Castles of Scotland. But Italy is a close second of vacation fantasies, so I’m looking forward to Stanley Tucci’s Searching for Italy.
