Days are long, especially when your tech doesn’t seem to work right for remote learning and teaching. You muddle through, only achieving low-level success. The rest of the work shift is spent emailing, cleaning, and prepping for tomorrow, but it seems to drag on.
My drive home is uneventful. When I make it home, it does take added effort to make it through the door and plop onto the couch. By surprise, my kids help carry in my teaching bags. Honestly, I’m not sure I had enough strength to do it myself!
I’m not sure how long I’ve been sitting here at this point, and I don’t even know if I want to get up. Dinner needs to be cooked, a load of laundry done, then dishes and basic daily cleaning all await me, but I still don’t move.
Fortunately, my kids step up and take over. Thank goodness! I think I’ll sit here a little longer then.
