Thank goodness its November. I am so over 2020. Also, November and December are my favorite months of the year.

We have a few more COVID cases at school. It’s frustrating to be in a setting where it is swept under the rug as much as possible so as to not make the school look bad. They control the flow of information and determine who they feel needs to be notified and quarantined. Because we are never informed, we can’t let anyone know if the positive person is someone we spent time with. Sigh.

My infected finger is pretty much healed though, so that is great! I’m still in the process of increasing my new anxiety meds and decreasing my previous one, so it is too early to tell if it will be helpful. Saturday I bit my thumb nail until it bled though so that isn’t giving me much faith.

I feel like I’m such a downer this week! Sorry! I think that things are just getting tough and I don’t have an outlet. I am hoping that once the election is over here in the USA, things will get better. I fear, though, regardless of the outcome, things will get worse before they improve at all. It is going to be divisive to say the least.

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!

  1. I am sorry that you are having such a tough time of it, Samantha… Teachers are currently right in the front line – and it doesn’t help when the school somehow thinks that infections are a failure, rather than a fact of life they need to deal with by giving as much information as possible. I hope you manage to have a better week. Take care!

  2. I am so glad I kept my kids home, I have heard a lot of schools are sort of glossing over that kids are getting it and not closing schools.
    Have you tried CBD, I use that with my anxiety meds so I don’t have to take to much. it seems to work great. If you are against it I totally understand. I was having a hard time this year and this seemed to make it better. Just can’t stop the meds, CBD doesn’t work on its own for me.

    I hope you have a great week, Samantha! Happy Reading! Stay Safe!

  3. It is weird the way they cannot tell you information regarding infections. Someone died from COVID here and we only knew because their son posted it on Facebook. The board of health could not be specific. This confuses me with respect to contact tracing . I hope you get some relief soon. At least we have Thanksgiving to look forward to.

  4. I will feel relief when the election is over just as relief from political ads. But the next few months will still have plenty of political news and difficulties. I’m worried about the Supreme Court case on the ACA since it might mean we can’t get or can’t afford health insurance. But enough of that. I’m really excited you got some great books in your haul. It surprises me you are getting physical books but I guess I always prefer digital and they know it. I just finished Daylight and really enjoyed it. Happy reading and stay well.

  5. No you are not a downer Samantha! You have every reasons to rant as this year has been far from kind with us! I also admire all the teachers who every day go and teach the kids while I am at ease , homeworking! So no, you are not a downer. Stay safe!

  6. I share your frustrations with school notifications. I’m not a teacher, obviously, just a parent but our district, while I think they’ve done a lot of good things, do seem to be trying tp keep cases quiet, and they make some assumptions doing so- saying that they are notifying whoever “needs” to be notified, but with kids going to practices and as busy as the school is, there’s no doubt that there are exposures that are not being reported. I’m just hoping for the best…

    Nov and Dec are favorites of mine as well, mainly due to the holidays, and hpefully we’ll have some good news from the election to get things off to a good start. 🙂

    2020 is a dreadful year and I can relate about school and covid – here in Paris, several libraries have been temporarily closed because of covid and they tried to keep it hush-hush not to look bad. I hope you feel better soon *hugs*
