So, much of May has been overcast or rainy, which is definitely not the norm here in Southeast Texas. The 10 days in a row! of rain we just had finished on Tuesday.
Now, add sun. And we’re now living in a greenhouse. Heck, it’s always humid here, but it’s extra right now. Temps for today read 88 but with humidity, 96. And I think we’re in for a lot more of where that’s coming from, unfortunately.
I hate to be cliche, but the mosquitoes are now really bad, and they are Texas size, y’all. No lie. I’m just hoping the ground will be dry enough to mow this weekend because in some places, the grass is over a foot high. Our poor Chihuahuas are having a tough time out in the yard!
School ends in a week. It’s surreal. Trying to describe the strangeness, the disconnectedness, the COVIDness of it all is almost impossible. When students started last September, we were teaching remote and F2F and that hasn’t changed all year. To say I’m glad this school year is over soon is an understatement. I’ve had great young people to hang out with, but it’s honestly been my hardest year of teaching in the 20 years I’ve had this gig.
I’m still pretty much just working, coming home and feeding the crew, and then laying down. Mostly, I’m just trying to roll with this right now because it obviously doesn’t help to try to fight it or “push through.” Doing that only makes the chronic fatigue worse. No bueno.
Alright, well, time to lay down, my friends! Hope everyone has a good evening. Take care- belle
