It is such an odd situation to be waiting for someone to need you. I posted all my lessons yesterday so now I am just waiting for my superiors or my students to email with something to do. I would love to say I am bored but I am not sure that is really the case. I have been glued to the John Hopkins’s map about the virus and the way the cases keep jumping up everyday.
I listen to audio books and play games with my boyfriend and kids. It’s like my life is in some sort of holding pattern. I guess everyone across the country feels the same way. I know we have to be available to our jobs but it is such an odd existence. I still can’t believe this is really happening in real life. I still can’t fathom how we could all be quarantined in our homes because of an infectious virus. I know that we will eventually be on the other side of this situation but I wonder what life will be like by then. Will we go back to business as usual or will we all be forever changed? I worry about my son’s summer plans and how this will influence my daughter’s first year of college. I am lucky though because my boyfriend and I are in this together through thick and thin which reassures me. My kids and I are so lucky to have him. We are truly a family which is such a relief after all these years as a single mom. Oh well my break is over and it is time to get back to being available to my students!!
