Weekend Plans Post: School Daze
So school has been gearing back up here in town. Kids coming in from out of state, everybody is gearing up for whatever’s going to happen, and hoping for the best. Meet new people, make new friends, have new experiences.
And “Back To School” means that schedules around the house are changing again. Maribou goes from working more or less the same shift that I do to working her afternoon/evening shift so she can help provide better coverage at the library to better support the students.
Now, of course, since we’re still in a place where the majority of support we give our various jobs is done online so this changes very little logistically for us. I have to be quieter in the morning when I wake up, I guess, and I need to QUIETLY fumble about to start the day instead of feeling like it’s okay to yell “oof” when I kick something. But, on the days I don’t have to go in, the fumbling about is limited. (And on the days I do have to go in, I just pull the clothes from the dryer in the basement from when they finished when I washed them immediately after getting home the last time I went to work.)
And so this weekend will be spent doing the various chores around the house to get ready for the prep week to come. Change out the cat boxes, empty the various trashes and recycling containers, do the laundry. A big week is ahead of us and then, the week after that (I think) is the first week of school proper.
Keep your fingers crossed.
In lighter news, I finally broke “an hour” with my latest 5K. It was by a mere 40 seconds, but that’s the big barrier that I had in front of me. So now I get to google “what’s a good time for a 5K?”
That can’t be right. So maybe I’ll try again and break an hour by two minutes or so.
So… what’s on your docket?
