I’m anxious this morning. Bouncing from one thing to another. Laundry, TV news, email, Facebook, text messages. I have made myself a list of projects for the week(s) – but I can’t stay focused on any one thing right now. I think many of us are in the same boat. We are out of our normal routine, and that’s unsettling. Even school breaks and summer, with their “non-routines”, have routines! Vacations, extended family dinners and visits, sports, summer camps – that is all part of the non-routine.
My son’s school hasn’t sent anything yet for him in terms of homework, so he is enjoying playing Xbox online with his cousins in Colorado. I did make him read this morning, and he WILL practice his clarinet and saxophone today. Tomorrow, his day will look different. My husband chided me this morning, “Don’t go all nazi-teacher on him, let him relax a bit.” So for today, he’s got it easy.
Meanwhile, I am going to continue to check my email and Class Dojo page for messages from my students. I am going to eat lunch, comment on Slices, and pick a project. My son’s closet sounds like a good place to start.
