My children were not entirely happy to be told they’d have to wear full sets of clothing again. Well, except for socks. They’re supposed to, but neither didn’t and I think they both think they’ve put one over on their old man. I figured it was best to give ’em both at least one small victory.
PS: Going fine, except when the county’s computer network freezes up under the sudden pressure. But that’s only happened six, seven times so far. In the last hour. I wonder how counties without any money are doing right now?
…Which doesn’t have the same ring to it when it effectively means I start the new unpaid job tomorrow! Then again, we enjoy the nigh-obscene luxury of having parents home to minimize the situation; I was a stay-at-home already and my wife is still telecommuting. Based on the emails and messages coming out from the schools, there are a lot of kids in this county who will not have anybody to help them this semester with, well, pretty much everything.
I don’t think this is entirely fair to them, but I don’t really know what I can do about it, either.
Basically, I don’t really have a dang thing to say today. We’re going to watch Guardians of the Galaxy 2 this evening and my wife’s gonna make s’mores on the charcoal grill. It’s technically a holiday weekend and I should probably spend a good bit of it catching up on my sleep. Hell, maybe I’ll even have a beer.
Worked on the sonnet, and attended Zoom meetings about next week’s back-to-sitting-in-front-of-their-computers-to-do-lessons-while-I-play-administrative-assistant schedule for my kids. And I shouldn’t even really complain. Reading between the lines, I think the county schools are assuming that the kids are going to be at home by themselves and trying to navigate all of this while their parents are at work. Since my wife is still telecommuting and this is my job… welp. I’m sure other people would be happy to trade with me.
It’s always a pleasure to talk with Brent – particularly when it’s about my new book FROZEN DREAMS. If you ‘do’ podcasts and read this site, I suspect that you’ll find Drift Compatible amenable. And, of course, their taste is obviously impeccable. Check ’em out.
