If you are like a lot of us you’ve suddenly found yourself with more time on your hands. I was about to start a one-week spring break from teaching high school when the state decided to extend it to two. I doubt you need me to explain why… coronavirus. We were told to prepare to teach online before we left so we teachers thought something might be up. We haven’t been told if that’s what is expected in this “second week” of spring break but we’re prepared. I gathered up everything that makes sense to help transition to online classrooms including a spare laptop to help keep personal separate from private. I know this is just one of those situations that you need to just be able to roll with the punches.
The biggest drawback at the moment for me is the lack of sports on television. We’ve got no Baseball, no College Basketball, and No NHL. You can imagine that for hockey fans such as ourselves it has impacted our leisure time. We’ve both decided to make the most of these wholes in our schedules. I’m going to the gym more and Amanda is trying to relax, if just a little, more.
The simple message we have for our readers is, just relax, don’t panic, and practice good hygiene. We will weather this pandemic because we are a resilient species that can think its way out of trouble. I’ll try and come up with something more interesting to write about next week.
Hang in there.
