Hello from clinic (lunch break!).
My rapid test was negative this morning. I’m feeling 98% back to normal. I ran (on the treadmill due to a thunderstorm) this AM and it felt decent, though I think I backtracked a bit in my training by taking the week off.
I am seeing patients today and wearing an N95 and it has been fine. The only question that remains to determine whether this is really and truly over is . . . will there be spread within our household?
I guess only time will tell.
We are gradually sliding back into our normal household routines. I told both big kids they could have two days of absolute free-for-all, and then it would be time to incorporate some schoolwork (they each have sizable packets to complete and both are supposed to read, though no specific assigned books yet).
I am pretty sure Cameron spent >12 hrs yesterday on screens. He pointed out to me that he loved camp even though there were no screens, though! Interesting . . .
T-3 weeks . . .
Now suddenly there has been an abrupt pivot to “oh (#%*&$ it’s already time to sign up for school activities!” Not everything starts up right when school does, but enough things do — and fill up — that I’ve already started a makeshift Activities List in Apple Notes. It’s not a spreadsheet yet but it could easily become one.
So far, it’s looking like:
A wants to do theater, tennis, gymnastics (just once/week, nothing super intense), horseback riding, and art.
C wants to do soccer, tennis, and possibly art.
G wants to do dance (this class was almost full!) and gymnastics.
Josh wants all 3 kids to start/restart piano.
So basically life is going to be an insane puzzle to solve every week come fall. Good thing I like planning.
