It's 5AM on day who knows what of social distancing and I am embracing the crazy. We have all felt it that feeling of "I can't believe I am stuck in this house again!" Those quiet moments I love on the Max Trainer, when I get all my thoughts for the day together when my mind settles into the groove of the day are gone. Replaced by new thoughts of worry, anxiety and unease. I can't seem to shake the restlessness within my thoughts.
So today, I am embracing the crazy. I embrace the million pounds of Lysol Wipes that I use to wipe every surface of my house. I embrace the crazy thought that maybe I should spray the dogs with Lysol.....I didn't but I really did think about it. (Totally off topic, but one year we all got the flu from the dogs...everyone would cuddle with the dogs for comfort when we were sick and sure enough whoever petted them next got it!) I embrace the fact that I will continue to respect the government's suggestion to stay socially distant.
I am also going to embrace seeing my students for the first time in over a week via a video conference. I am going to embrace their laughter and let them talk all over each other. I am going to embrace the increased workload. Begrudgingly, I am going to embrace this computer.... I could never work at a job where I have to sit behind one all day!
Today, I will embrace the crazy. Crazy looks good on me!
