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

A birthday week | Weekly Snapshot

Yikes, sorry about the two-week absence! Both life and work happened, and with that, my reading and blogging disappeared.


We've had a lot going on during the past two weeks. My work got steadily busier over last two weeks and it looks like that will continue for a bit more. And to top it off, both kids got sick last week. It started with the boy getting an ear infection and then the girl got a cold and cough. It's been brutal because it feels like my daughter got much sicker than usual that I actually worried if this might be the dreaded C. Thankfully she tested negative and hopefully she will soon be freed from that nagging cough she still has. 

Needless to say, my brain was shot for much of these two weeks and I haven't been able to read much of anything, whether books or blogs. Sorry everyone - I'm hoping to find some time this week to visit your blogs.

After all those worries, we had a nice fun last night - we had a few of our neighbors, all vaccinated, over for a little get-together - it was a combination of giving a farewell to one family who are moving to a new town and a birthday party for our boy who turned three this week! I was a little disappointed we had so much sickness during a birthday week, but oh well, both kids had fun.

This upcoming week is the last week of school for both of them. From next week onwards through the summer, we'll be doing some daycare and some summer camp. Plus we have our island vacation coming up soon too. 


There's only one book I'm reading and it's The Plot by Jean Hanff Korelitz - I'm late finishing this in time for its release but I'm enjoying it a lot and do want to share my thoughts. 

I'm not sure what I'll read after this one but I'm going to follow my mood for a while. I'm still pretty tired after the past two weeks.

How are you doing? I hope you have some fun things going.
