Well, February started with our province in a strict lock down, the kids entering their fifth week of online schooling (and being pretty much over it), and me working part-time from the school and part-time from home. We were just trying to make it through winter and this slog of Covid craziness. How did it end? Read on to find out :) As usual I'm linking up with Rebecca Jo and friends.
1 - Monday -- It was a busy work day and I followed it up with a family walk to the library, a last minute supper of take out pizza, and another walk to pick up our local eggs which get delivered to the school parking lot. (Second sentence: Then I went to bed!)
2 - Tuesday -- I worked from home and helped Rachel celebrate "World Tutu Day."
3 - Wednesday -- THE KIDS ARE GOING BACK TO SCHOOL NEXT WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
4 - Thursday -- I had to do a really boring training at work this day and our supper (Indian takeout) was too spicy :(
5 - Friday -- I documented a "Day In The Life" this day as it was the last day of working from home and online learning for awhile. (Second sentence: You can read it here if you're really interested!)
6 - Saturday -- It was the first day of the #24in48 readathon and I woke up at 5:30am and read for fourteen hours this day.
Rachel joined me for some reading in the morning.
7 - Sunday -- I finished the readathon at about 9:15pm, exhausted but happy.
8 - Monday -- THE KIDS WENT BACK TO SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!
9 - Tuesday -- I did a workout video and Dave and Rachel went to Costco and picked up photos for the last time ever :(
10 - Wednesday -- I am learning all sorts of new things at work this week but I am also really tired.
I also documented much of this day in a "10 On The 10th" post which you can read here.
11 - Thursday -- We had a family walk to the library and were all grumpy by the end of it. (Second sentence: The province announced our Spring Break has been pushed back a month. Ugh.)
12 - Friday -- I read two whole books in the evening and it was the perfect way to kick off the long weekend.
13 - Saturday -- We went for a walk and went through everything in the playroom and it was a really good day.
14 - Sunday -- We went for a long walk on a trail and had our typical Valentines Day McDonald's supper.
Dave and I had a "date" at the grocery store! So romantic.
15 - Monday -- I baked buns, made soup, and Rachel baked a chocolate cake to take to a neighbourhood family who is struggling.
And we got a surprise pie from the man at our church. Yum!
16 - Tuesday -- It was a "weather impacted learning day," I shoveled a lot of snow, and discovered that my current position (which I've been in since December 10) is ending at the end of this week.
17 - Wednesday -- I was so EXHAUSTED this day I couldn't even manage the short walk to the school to pick up eggs.
18 - Thursday -- I did a workout this day for the first time in awhile and caught up on laundry.
19 - Friday -- It was my last day working at the school where I'd been for two and a half months and the sentiments of the staff upon learning I was leaving were so kind. (Second sentence: I didn't think I'd made that much of an impact.)
20 - Saturday -- This was a weird day of lots of shoveling, some basement organizing, some puzzle doing, some napping, and me basically being slightly grumpy all day without a really good reason as to why.
21 - Sunday -- We participated in church after a long break, Rachel baked a chocolate cake for friends, and we went on a 8.9 kilometre (5.5 mile) forest walk.
22 - Monday -- The kids had a "weather impacted learning day" (basically "sort of online school, sort of snow day"), I shoveled A LOT, and I read an entire book.
23 - Tuesday -- I didn't pick up a job this day but I cleaned two rooms, went for a long walk with one of the pastors from our church, and Dave and I had a day date where we picked up sandwiches to go and had a chance to talk.
Also, Rachel was so happy I was home in the morning this day so I could French braid her hair and she baked cookies by herself in the evening.
24 - Wednesday -- I worked a partial day at a school I could walk to (which I loved), walked to the library and picked up coffee, and enjoyed the first amazing Spring-like day of the year.
25 - Thursday -- I got called back to work at the school where I'd been for the previous two months which was really fun!
26 - Friday -- One of our family members had to get a Covid test which meant we all had to stay home and I had to cancel my highlights and massage appointments. (Second sentence: It was NOT a good day.)
We also did a puzzle. And by "we" I mean "mostly me with some assistance from Rachel."
27 - Saturday -- An enforced day at home meant we got some more cleaning done in the basement, I did a few workout videos, and Dave and I were both slightly grumpy.
28 - Sunday -- The Covid test came back negative (WHOOOO HOOO!!!) and I had a really good phone call with a friend.
