Day 20: Time is Odd

How does time pass? It’s odd to me!

Just a week ago, I was with my students, teaching.

Just a week ago, I was working on the next week’s lesson plans.

Just a week ago, I got an email saying school is cancelled through April 6th.

Just a week ago, it felt strange leaving school and heading into the unknown.

Just a week ago, I was stressing over having 40 people at the house for a birthday party.

Just a week ago, I was talking about summer plans.

Just a week ago, I was almost looking forward to the time to work from home and get stuff done around the house that would normally not get done.

Just a week ago, I told my mom, “See you tomorrow.”

It’s been a week since I have been with my students.

It’s been a week of planning e-learning for my students and checking in with them.

It’s been a week since I have had social interaction with anyone other than my husband and kids.

It’s been a week of hoping that we can get to the neighborhood pool this summer (and wondering if I should even buy a pool pass this year).

It’s been a week since I have been home and nothing has gotten done.

It’s been a week since I have seen my mom, my sisters, my nieces, and nephew. We are a close family and this is the most difficult part of all of this for my kids and me!

  1. Such a strange, long, hard week. I thought I would accomplish a lot, and I really haven’t. And like you, I miss teaching and miss my family, especially my 86-year-old mom, who is basically in isolation in her apartment at the senior living center. I’m looking forward to the end of this!
