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

Moving on...


I'm finally moving out for good from Blacksburg. In fact, as you read this post, I am already on the road. It feels weird to say that, after being here for two years and looking at this place like home. I'm moving to Lynchburg, which is two hours away. I'm pretty excited to move to a new place, and for the first time, I will be in my own apartment - free to do as I wish, short of bugging the neighbors (which I don't do anyways). It's an exciting thought, because I've always been the kind of person who loves to play house. The first couple of days are going to be really hectic, as I move things out of boxes, and buy furniture for my apartment. Sadly, I won't be getting internet until August 23rd. So I'm going to consider this a getaway vacation, just like the one Molly is on, the only difference is that she is in a very scenic place and getting plenty of rest, whereas I will be running around, LOL!

The other news for the week is that I am going to New York next week, since my brother is coming to the US to study. All this means that I will be on a one week blogging break. I planned to have a few posts scheduled but that didn't pan out. So, instead, I'll return back on the 22nd, this time for good! :-)

Hope I don't miss too much while I'm away!

Enjoy the forced blogging break! Have fun moving in, buying furniture, seeing your brother, etc. And NY? So fun! It all sounds hectic, but so exciting

Have fun getting settled into your new place (as I recall the area around Lynchburg is lovely) and with your brother! We'll be looking forward to lots of pics!
Wow, congrats on moving! I'm sure it's a lot of work, but it'll feel good once you're all settled down.

See you when you get back!

I'm sure your move will go well, and enjoy your time with your brother!

Soon I'll be away from my blog for a while, visiting my hometown, and like you I didn't have time to plan any scheduled posts. So you won't miss very much from my blog :-).

I'm finally settled in my new place and if your experience is anything like the one I've had in the past week you wouldn't have time for blogging even if you did have the Internet. Probably best to just take a break from it because I was stressing about not getting posts up! Good luck with your move.
