So the kids are on Spring Break and the timing sorta baffles me a little bit. They’re getting this week off but will return for the week before Easter and I feel like it would have made more sense to go this week and have the week of Easter off, but whatever.
There aren’t that many plans for this week and I’m okay with that. The boys have a video appointment with Akron Children’s and I do have to drop the car off at the body shop again. Hopefully, this will be the last trip unless I need new repairs done.
One of the things I plan on doing this week is Spring cleaning. We definitely need to do that because COVID lockdown has taken it’s toll on the house and I really want to get things caught up. Starting the new season out on the right foot seems like a good plan. The kids are even somewhat cooperative as well. That’s kinda interesting to me and I plan to take advantage of this.
The boys want to do some yard work and we can probably begin doing that as well.
I also think I that taking the boys hiking this week would be a good idea because they need to get out of the house. I’m not sure what the weather is going to be like but we can always play it by ear.
Emmett will be returning to the classroom briefly in the coming weeks because of state testing. Why in the ever loving fuck would we do state testing under the current circumstances? That will never make sense to me. Anyway, I feel pretty comfortable about this because they will be in small groups and assuming that universal mask wearing is absolutely enforced, it should be okay. I’ll be getting my second dose about that time and so I’m already in pretty good shape, as is Gavin. Emmett’s nervous and I get it. I’ll be reaching out to the school to discuss some of the details and make sure that I feel it’s safe enough. If I don’t feel it’s safe, then it’s kinda fuck the rules, we won’t be doing it. I do, however, trust the school and I just want to do my due diligence.
I’m sitting here writing this and there’s a nice breeze blowing through my balcony door. It definitely feels like Spring and I love that because Spring is all about new beginnings. I’m starting a new season and a new life all at the same time. I feel good and while much of this is very new to me, I so excited to keep moving forward. I so grateful for the people in my life and their patience with everything that goes along with COVID lockdown. I’m nearing the light at the end of the tunnel and it doesn’t appear to be a train. I can’t wait to reach it and exit this period of my life and fully embrace all that’s new.
The boys and I have come so far and I’m so proud of them. We’re doing great and all I can say is that this is so amazing………..
