The year known as April has finally ended. Man, that was long and tough. Here in Ohio, we are still under some fairly strict restrictions, but elective surgeries are allowed to move forward now, and several other businesses are permitted to open.
Teaching from home is so challenging. A teenager struggles when they are in class to understand some concepts. Trying to teach themselves math, English, social studies, and Science at home? Yeah, they are frustrated. If you have ever worked in a school before, you also know what this time of year is like…chaos. State testing is done, and we are just trying to hold down the fort. When you combine that with online education you have a disaster. Thankfully, our administration decided to cut our school year short by a week.
I filled out my new hire paperwork for my upcoming job. This led to a panic attack! I get very worried about what others think of me. What if no one likes me? What if I screw something up? What if I made a huge mistake by leaving my job for this job? So, my therapist is helping me work on some techniques to handle these intrusive thoughts. This is typical of my OCD-I focus on the obsessive side of things and must think about every possible contingency so I can be ready. Of course, I know that is impossible, but my brain insists that we consider everything so we are always prepared.
I have gained a few pounds since this pandemic started. So, I’m seriously cracking down on myself!! When I’m home all day, I snack all day! Ugh!
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
