The kids have had 4 days of school.
As of this moment, Annabel and Cameron both quarantined already (one case in each class) and stuck at home for varying amounts of time. They do have Zoom/virtual school, though I am not sure what the time frame is.
(While the CDC technically does not consider a masked school contact a true contact apparently their school does.)
((I am not sure if the local public schools are doing quarantines like this; however, I have heard they are not offering any virtual school option when kid are out.))
(((I do not think they will require quarantines in vaccinated exposed children, so — as previously — I truly cannot wait for those vaccines!)))
I figured this would happen but thought we’d have like, at least one week of school first.
They did lift their sibling policy, so I guess G will go to school by herself. I am having flashbacks to 2020 and they are not pretty.
So much for my productive catchup day.
I know. Gratitude (for health, for childcare). Perspective (this will pass. It’s not a big deal, in in the grand scheme off things). But also: #($*@(#@#.
One bright spot from yesterday: BLP was mentioned on Monday’s ep of Forever 35! Kate did not share my specific planner recs, but shared the show in general. A reader alerted me and I nearly fell off my chair. So, that was fun.
But also: #(@#&#*%)(#$.
I couldn’t even bring myself to get up early today, because a) my legs are super are from yesterday’s SC workout b) I was tired (? covid ? probably not, but who knows) and c) I’m too annoyed at life.
Back tomorrow with hopefully better coping skills.
Addendum: I wrote a (calm) email to the school asking about the quarantine policy and received a very reasonable response that they are in the process of re-evaluating now, including looking at what other area schools are doing. So there is hope in that regard. I do feel the slightest bit better having learned that.
