And the Quarantine Goes On…

It’s the middle of May and we’re still in quarantine. I’m not entirely sure what the plan is for us in the NYC area as I don’t watch the news all that often. My mom, my girls and Tommy usually keep me updated on current events and the governor’s and mayor’s latest stance. I also, as embarrassing as this sounds get a lot of news information from Facebook and social media when friends post news articles and/or links to broadcasts. It works for me.

This past Sunday was Mother’s Day and my family was awesome! I didn’t cook. We had my mom and family over, we ate outside; the weather was gorgeous and we were able to maintain social distance. It was a great Mother’s Day. My kids gave me the sweetest, most heartfelt cards. I feel very fortunate and blessed. Later in the day we called Thomas so we could come over and see him. Of course we brought Wendy’s cheeseburgers and he was happy.

I’m at the very end of my health assessment class towards my bachelor’s degree. I have to perform a head to toe assessment on an adult age 18 and over on video and submit it to my professor. I completed one video and was told to do over certain parts. I was so bummed man. Thankfully my “patient,” Alyssa is very patient and doesn’t mind doing it again. My mistakes weren’t horrendous thank God. I spoke to the instructor and she clarified things so I feel I’m on the right track. After the Assessment class I am taking a Communications class. I’m looking forward to something different. When all is said and done at the end of this semester; June 30, I’ll have completed 12 credits. I hope beyond hope to be completed with the bachelor’s next year. I plan on continuing for my Master’s.

I used to think a Master’s degree was out of my reach academically. But the more I thought about not the more I realized I was talking myself out of it. I don’t know what I plan on doing once I have the Master’s. It seems so far in the future. I really enjoy my job as a school nurse for special education and medically fragile students. I can’t wait to get back to school. I call my parents on the phone to check up on them and the student, it’s great to talk to them and for the most part everyone is doing well thank God. I miss work, I miss the kids I take care of and I miss the staff like crazy!

Hopefully the quarantine will be over soon.
