Pandemic-fatigue | Weekly Snapshot

It got busy this week! Lots going on at home, work, and otherwise as well.  Life My daughter's school decided to close on Friday, along with several other schools in the area, with some being closed from Thursday. Not enough staff. The school had been on a mask mandate since the beginning of the pandemic, dropping it only for one week when the pandemic had appeared to have stabilized last year. And yet, they dropped the mandate completely at the beginning of this year, when cases were exponentially rising, only to bring it back again starting next week. I've gone from being very annoyed to angry to feeling fatigue in these first two weeks already. I won't lie - we all mask around here and try to avoid going where we don't have a need to be in, and still, we are not taking anything close to the extreme precaution we all took at the beginning of the pandemic. I cannot and don't want to keep my kids home - I have at least that much faith in the schools' precautions

Audio Book Reading Challenge (2010)



Now audio books are something I don't enjoy much. I started listening to them a few months back, and I still much prefer the real books. Sometimes, it's the annoying reading by the narrator, sometimes, its the plenty of details I miss when I get distracted by something else. But anyways, I am considering doing this challenge at the Addicted level, which involves listening to 12 audio books.

This challenge is hosted at Royal Reviews, and runs January 1st through December 31st. To sign-up, click this link.

Update (Jan 22, 2011): Abandoned this challenge.
