Time Is Flying

I feel like I do not accomplish anything anymore. Sigh. The boys started elearning April 6th. It kept getting moved. Don’t think it is for them. No matter how much I nag them they don’t do enough logging in or homework. Homework was that way before though. I am beginning to think the daughter was way easier to get through school even though she was a social butterfly and got into some trouble. The boys have no interest. Sigh again. But it is what it is. Just makes me sad more that the school year would have ended better with in person classes instead of the online learning. I like online but no one else in the house does. Really praying the senior son graduates, because it isn’t looking positive right now. Sadly no graduation ceremony because of the dang virus. Sad for everyone. The school did come up with a virtual ceremony but people griped and even said they wouldn’t participate which is not right to me. I think it’s great that they will do something at least. A little hard to have small graduations when the class is 300+. I understand that it would require a lot of graduations because of keeping it to the 10 and under size requirements for state guidelines. Of course, the school has to worry about someone getting sick and then blaming them. I really don’t know what the solution would be.

The online ceremony is also keeping with the graduation requirements and one of those is having all your volunteer hours done. Sadly my senior did not get those done. I’m not sure if he will be included on that. 😦 My senior is a true introvert unless he knows you well. He mostly stays home so didn’t have to worry about much as he was growing up. He has had some health issues so I think that kept him home more as well. On a good note he has had a job since March working on semi trucks, maintenance, not the deep mechanical part. It has had it’s up and downs. His main supervisor is a kid that graduated last year as the main maintenance man and he is pretty moody. I hope it doesn’t deter my senior from not liking the job. I was hoping they would be good friends but doesn’t look like it now. He has already used his welding skills from school and learning good basic skills. A great first job with good pay making more than I ever did.

Everyone in the household doing fine. No one sick and all essential employees. We don’t go many places even when there is no stay at home so we are doing alright. Youngest son has went fishing a few times, yummy fish. He was recently hired back to his job and it has made him so happy. He was getting unmotivated. Maybe it will help with the learning. I can hope. 🙂

The sun is starting to shine more! We kept going from warm out to freezing. Tired of that. My one flower plant is tired of that. LOL

Stay healthy everyone and hope everyone can get back to work and life and everything else. 🙂

One thought on “Time Is Flying

  1. Hello (State) neighbor! Great blog! I need to catch up on your blogs more often. I’m hardly on my blog anymore, but hopefully I’ll get off my bum and write some. I have 35 blogs on “draft” that I never published. I deleted a lot from the original number of 50 unpublished blogs. I’m happy to hear your family is healthy and not sick from the crazy “rona”. Don’t feel bad about your son and online learning. Even though my son is in his first year of college, I’ve had to kinda “remind” him to do projects and not leave them to the last minute. It’s hard to back off as a parent, especially after High School now that he’s a college student because I do want him to learn on his own the consequences of procrastination. I try to keep a balance and give him space, but he wants to transfer to a local University so he needs to keep up his grades. I’m happy your son has gone back to work! My son’s job hasn’t called anyone back yet. He’s applied to several jobs, but they say so many people have applied or they are already filled. These are certainly difficult and trying times. Not too much has changed on our end. We go on car rides to just have a change of scenery and watch the prairie dogs in a town 25 minutes South of where we live. We have this little spot where we watch the sunset and listen to spooky stories online. We’re doing good and staying healthy.
