I am going to break down the top 20 things that I have learned during these last few weeks off due to the Corona Virus. I am doing the first ten tonight, and wrap up this challenge with the final ten tomorrow.
Before I start, Happy birthday Cassie! Hope it was a good one!
- I hate the Corona Virus. No explanation needed.
- I actually really do miss teaching. I would’ve thought that if we had an opportunity to get off a couple extra weeks without having to make it up, I would be ecstatic. Turns out, I wish nothing more than to get back in the classroom with my students.
- My kids are awesome. Being stuck in the house for this long, I feared the worst with my kids. However, they have been such troopers. They play so well, love doing the school work, and rarely fight or argue. They make it so much easier on us.
- My wife is a work horse. My wife works from home, so besides the summer, I don’t really get to see her work. Over the course of this week, she has had so much thrown at her, not to mention the fact that her huge presentation is due. She worked day, night, and weekends. Never complaining, just getting it done.
- I am not good at being quarantined. I need to get out!!
- I miss going out! See above. We typically would go out to dinner at least once a week, plus some bar nights with friends sprinkled in. I miss it!!
- I need adult interaction. As much as it is fun talking with my kids, I need to have some actual adult conversations.
- I don’t like being told no. My wife is taking this very seriously, as am I, but I still want to try and sneak over to our friends house. She told me no. I don’t like it.
- Even working out is fun. The mental hurdle is the toughest for me to get over when it comes to working out. Now, I actually use it as a break from doing nothing.
- Fresh air is key. Getting outside has been so important. I don’t care if it is cold, rainy, or whatever, I still need to get out and get some fresh air each day. Although, having the sun out is so amazing.
There are my first ten. The second ten will close out this chapter of slicing tomorrow.
