Day 22 – Tired

I am tired today. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I stayed up well past my “teacher bedtime” the last two nights. Otherwise, I really have no other reason. It’s not as though I’m dashing around my classroom encouraging, entertaining, and extinguishing “fires” all day long. This group of students drains me both physically and mentally.

Today’s tired feels mental. The anxiousness, the uncertainty of all of this makes me want to curl up in bed and sleep. This is all so different from what we are familiar with. I have not set up a “schedule” for myself at home. Maybe I need to do that. I am “available” as required, but find myself jumping from task to task, not really completing much of anything. I am obsessively checking my email, and Class Dojo messages. I record and send a morning video greeting each day. I am recording myself doing a chapter book read aloud. I want to make sure my students are “doing” something, but at the same time, don’t want to overwhelm the parents.

So – I took a nap. I participated in a Facebook Live “Friends” Trivia game. Now, I am going to make dinner, and I figure we will finish watching Toy Story 4 tonight. Hang in there, everyone!

(as I read over this again before submitting, my writing/thoughts seem so disjointed. Sorry if it doesn’t make sense. I guess that’s another way to describe my feelings today. Disjointed.)

  1. You have really captured how most of us are probably feeling. I am exhausted. I too have been staying up a little too late, but this is more a mental tired as you said. Hang in there.


  2. I feel the same way today kim.
    Today I am bored.
    There are things I can do, bit no motivation to do them today.
    I’m mentally drained and this snow isn’t helping my mood.
    Hopefully tomorrow when we all have some sort of school schedule, things will be better!


  3. Disjointed is a good way to describe the feelings during this chaos. My mind is all over the place, and it’s hard to commit to finishing a project.


  4. You are not alone in how you feel. I think you are right, we need to set schedules for ourselves so that there becomes a sense of normal and routine. Hang in there – we’ll get through this!


  5. I am feeling the same way. I give myself a pat on the back for accomplishing things. That being said it doesn’t matter when we get things done as long as they get done. The schedule is out the window for me at least.
