So, just to catch anyone up who might be interested 😉 May was flying by as it usually does, and I was finishing up community college grades, finishing up paperwork for the semester, keeping students half-way interested…We we’re rolling along, and then I got COVID. I’m glad my mom insisted that I do a home test on May 21. I honestly just thought I had a mild cold. Then it was confirmed at CVS that afternoon that it was for real.
Unfortunately, I missed the last 4 days of school (finals) and graduation, which I signed up to work 😦 And I missed my niece’s high school graduation as well (double sad faces!) It was for sure all the way around very disappointing. The worst days for me were like 3-6 of the virus. It took about 8 full days to get back to myself.
It was hard to not be at school to close the year. I’ve never missed a last day, let alone the last week! Luckily, my classes had their little end of year celebrations the week before; plus, I didn’t have any students taking a final, and my grades were already completed. Yippee!
It finally feels like summer this week. Not that I’ve done a bunch this week, but it’s here, and I made it through this semester and this year. After starting the semester on medical leave and ending with COVID, I’m so glad I made it to the finish line, not gracefully, but still! My students were so great and my colleagues really supported me in more ways than I can count.
I had my phone appointment with my out of town doctor yesterday. We’re changing the game plan since the meds and the plan I started in December aren’t necessarily giving me the progress we want to see. More to come.
We’ve had the hottest May here on record since early 1900s, and now, it’s basically July weather already, and we haven’t had any rain in weeks. Today, it’s 96 and the heat index is 104. Not sure how this weekend will go. Sat/Sun the temp is 101…so heat index? Let’s just hope that ERCOT can keep the electric grid intact. Not a joke BTW.
Take care and peace to you -belle
