Quarantine Day 35

Day 35 was a little more interesting than most. My school had our first zoom faculty meeting, which was interesting. One feature that makes these meeting more productive, is the mute feature. Side conversations do not interrupt the main speaker. Our administrator had sent out a group document earlier, for any questions we had. Before the meeting, the answers to everyone’s questions were added to the document, and it was shared with everyone. We are having a group book study to close out the school year, so anyone can get a jump start on professional development. This is the book we are studying…

Today was going to be awkward in part. I had planned to tell teen son’s therapist that we are going to change to a different therapist. I planned to do it via virtual session. Teen son was not comfortable at all at the prospect of having a last session. I ended up calling to cancel the appointment. I had to leave a voicemail, as no one was in the office. When the appointment time was getting closer, I tried calling again. This time I got the receptionist. As is common, I had to tell the receptionist that we were changing therapists. It was uncomfortable and weird to have to do this so impersonally. This has been how the office has operated as long as we have gone there. I am glad that is over.

I went to a plant nursery and got some starter plants for our little garden. We will have tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, and beans. I will be planting tomorrow!

As I finished up my day, I started setting up social media and a website for my retirement gig. I have thought for a long time that I would do some tutoring into my retirement. I still have at least one year to work before I can consider early retirement, but with the extra time out of work, I figured I would plant some seeds! It has been so long since I have set up a website on WordPress! I spent far too much time on it, and never really got going. I don’t remember it being so time consuming back when I first started blogging about six years ago.

Here is the Dear Heart flower for today. It came with a quote today…

Stay well, stay home if you can, and check on a friend…
