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

The Sunday Salon -- Jan 31, 2010

Our first month of 2010 is already history!

It's been two days since I blogged, and as always, my weekends turn out more hectic than my weekdays! Probably has to do with the gazillion tasks I assign to the weekends, not meeting much of them in the end.

I've been playing with my blog layout and settings yet again, but finally had to stop that to get some other things done. I've two reviews scheduled over the next few days, plus one more to write, after I finish Say you're one of them. I hate to say this, but I've been struggling with that book. I wanted to enjoy it, but it's just not working for me. I'm not syncing well with the narration, and am finding it a bit dragging, a little too often. I'll however be finishing it tonight, and will review it this coming week.

Month-ends mean a lot of list-making, and a lot of planning for the coming month. I plan to take it a little lighter in February, to give myself more time to focus on my thesis. I have a couple of library books due in this week, Not my Daughter and Rainwater. Though I want to read both, I'm not able to decide which one to choose, in the event I don't get a chance to read the other one. I've had both books recommended to me, so there, it's not easy deciding!

Moving on to other exciting things, I wanted to mention these wonderful awards I got over the last week!
