Day 8 in a time of Covid-19…

I’ve figured it’s easier to blog first thing in the morning. I’m a morning person. You may be too but I totally space by evening. Here’s the low down into yesterday in a day in the life of homeschooling, working, and being a student in a time of Covid-19.

Schools back in session for me. All my classes are online now so that means not only am I getting my school work done but I’m working my normal job, remotely from home and I’m playing teacher to a 4th grader. My schedule this week is crazy (photo of weekly schedule below).

My 4th grader has issues learning. He is not the only child right now in the United States, doing school at home, with a learning disability. However, he’s my child and it gets to me to see him struggle. By 10:00 am he was in tears overwhelmed doing a school Hot Chili session with his teacher and classmates. He should not be in tears at 10:00 am. We did get our first school session done with no issues. Success. Our second school session didn’t go as planned but guess what? We ended up getting some fresh air and taking a walk around the block twice. He used his scooter, got out some energy, and came home a happier child. Winning!

Work for me is harder when the kids are with me. Working into my schedule and having to work around my sons schedule means I need to stay right on track. Again, not the only American or person in the world going through this but again, it’s new to me and affecting me. Add in getting my school work done I feel so overwhelmed at times during the day and yesterday was only Monday.

Self care is another thing in a time of Covid-19. I notice because I’m sooo busy that I just eat whatever and my workouts suffer. I’m working hard daily to not let this happen. My body dysmorphia doesn’t stop when there’s a pandemic happening. Today I start over. We can always start over. Today I will practice pausing to make sure I stay on track for myself.

Today’s a new day. I’m going to just try and get all my important stuff done early in the morning since I’m a morning person. Here’s to a new day, in our new normal, during a time of Covid-19.

The boy and my schedule for the week, Oh My!

Day 4 in a time of Covid-19…

Ever have one of those “my couch and me are connected at the waist” kind of days? This is my day and why I’m doing my post earlier because this day is done. Proof some days are just off.

I swapped out items at work, worked a total of 3 hours today. Tomorrow I’ll do 3.5 and I’m ok with that. I was sooo tired today, upset tummy this morning, and around lunch my sugar was low. It was just a day where my body wanted rest. You know I’m not me today because I watched Swamp People and enjoyed it. Reality TV is weird.

Highlights though…being called a dorky mom at times, box of veggies with bonus toilet paper from Tender Greens, made some yummy veggie soup, supported a mom and pop grocery store and rested. Will have to do two more workouts tomorrow but I’ll have the weekend off. Until tomorrow….

Low Sugar = That time of the month when my body hates me.
I played with filters. It happens.

Day 3 in a time of Covid-19…

I did it. I got through another day indoors. I started the day in gratitude. What a great way to start it and for you, things I thought about or did or said:

1. I need a pedicure. Seriously, I’m not the only one right? I’m so hitting up Pinterest to see how to make my feet smooth and pretty.

2. I did two workouts today. I’m a boss. That’s 1 hour people where I turned off my mind. 1 hour. Winning!

3. I may say What the F**k a lot throughout my day. Do I start a swear jar? Would it really make a difference?

4. I can hear my neighbor sneeze. He’s also hot. I also may have relations with him. OMG people, he’s my boyfriend. I’m allowed.

5. I talk to my cats like they’re people.

6. Daytime tv while I work is horrible. Daytime tv sucks.

7. Trumps high if he thinks people should be in a packed church for Easter. Does this man ever really think things out? Does this man have a filter?

So, as you can see I’ve learned to entertain myself. I don’t answer myself so I’m still good. Until tomorrow in a time of Corona.

Don’t forget
