Wrapped up a meeting regarding Virtual School for the '20-'21 School Year. Partner and I are pleased with how well it went. The instructor was wonderfully personable and frankly it was just nice to chat with someone else for a bit.
I miss school sometimes. I enjoyed having a structured portion of my day that was dedicated to learning. It is more difficult as an adult to create that space for myself. I have so many things I want to experience that it all crowds one another out. I'm sure there is time for it, the process of structuring is just so difficult.
Forcing myself to take time to write this helps. Having youngling back on more of a schedule will help too. We are continuing to school through the summer, but it is more informal, less regimented than I would prefer. Partially, I think, it is because I am so desperate for quiet personal moments that I do not start the day when and how I should. I suspect this is a very common struggle for most people who act in any care giver capacity.
Still, this is a nice stolen moment to write and enjoy my coffee and I am grateful for it. The sudden rain added to the coziness.
