Dear Lockdown Diary Week Four
Day Twenty Six
This is where it really started hitting me. Being locked in, not being able to just hit the road or go sit somewhere with a friend and have a nice meal. It was here where I started missing my freedom. Maybe it has something to do with remote schooling but I think day twenty six was just one day too many for me.
Day Twenty Seven
With all this time to think, our thoughts are forced in a direction. Our minds are directed to work through things and search for answers. Day twenty seven was a better day. Sometimes a mindset change is all we need. Accept and move on.
Day Twenty Eight
Day twenty eight was a difficult day. I am struggling so much with Microsoft Teams and I am usually very okay when it comes to programs and computers, but this system times four kids is really working on my nerves. Getting the work done is not the mission, but getting the work submitted and to each teacher is a nightmare.
The day got the better of me, but it was World Book Day so I celebrated books because books are my life. I also got a bottle of wine from a good friend of mine, so the day ended on a higher note.
Day Twenty Nine
Friday!!! Favourite day of the week. After a long and difficult week, filled with so many technical issues I had to look at all the things we did that was good. When I found the video’s we recorded for Nika’s reading assessment in her second language, it made my day. She was so funny.
A good reminder of the fact that not everything is bad, no matter how much I struggled all week with the “system” we had such amazing times together. I just came to the conclusion at the end of the week that I will not allow the school to steel my joy. I know this is not easy, but hey I have to try every day to make it better and better.
Finally weekend and it’s a long one!!!!! God was so amazing when He planned all of this. Next week is a new week, new things to do and new adventures to fill.
Be safe and lots of love xxx
