Welcome to the forums Amma. You're not alone in your thinking right now, probably ever tbh lol.
I think we're in week 7 of lock down.
Today my son's school phoned and told me HOW to supervise him doing his HSC Trials beginning next Friday.
He's on a different schedule to my other sons doing theirs too.
I wonder if I have to sign multiple Stat Decs? One for each of them... time will tell.
Fortunately / unfortunately also, I have to take leave from work to help my eldest daughter through surgery soon.
Not exactly sure how I'll supervise all my sons AND help care for my daughter who is also a single mum.
All of my family inside my home and living in their homes are still working.
I'll be glad to have a "breather" if I can call it that .... spinning too many plates and hoping none will crash and fall.
I'm grateful that my kids "all work together like a well oiled machine" as I say to them. They are very collaborative and cooperative, helping each other with their high level studies, just doing what needs to be done AND working at their workplaces.
There are clear divides in my work place showing sharply now.
Today my Counsellor told me about a valuable podcast for during this time. Esther Perelle (spelling?). I haven't investigated it yet but will do at some point.
Apparently her research during lock down discovered the absence of JOY.
Wow, really? lol.
Furthermore, the absence of joy from creativity. Okay.
My creativity is going "WILD" lol creating a veritable Chook Palace for my chickens.
I'm very excited about doing this for them AND me. It's going to be fun.
May seem purile to some but hey whatever keeps us going right?
What creative thing is anyone else doing atm?
