I'm starting to get a little buggy. Last time I actually left the house was Sunday, since then it's been working-from-home or schoolteaching-from-home, with breaks to clean the home or cook food for my family.
I know a lot of people have it worse (I'm still getting paid! I have a spouse to help wrangle everything!) but I need to figure out a way to get some downtime before I start climbing the walls.
So far, during the morning my wife wrangles the kids (three, cause we also have my niece) and works intermittently, and in the afternoon it's my turn. This way we each get four productive hours and the kids get some semblance of an education.
I am hoping that after a week or so this will be easier. I have a sneaking suspicion that schools in NYC aren't re-opening this year.
So last night my bandmate mentioned that his daughter is taking a class called "Latin Hustle", and I immediately replied, "So she's conjugating verbs in the park for a dollar each?"
I am so proud of that one I had to share it, #SorryNotSorry
- Teacher Conference at school. Should be low stress, good report card came home earlier this week
- Call plumber about the blocked drains. Ugh, drains. This will be low stress because my plumber is very good but high stress because ugh, drains.
- Figure out what to feed kids for dinner tonight. Kids like food.
- Maybe get some work done or something?
Also also, this tea-like medicine tastes vile. What is this, the Polgara school of medical flavorings?
Also, she reports that she has the same cold and has to deal with a four-day tech conference, so I think I probably should whine slightly less.
