I hate having to make impossible decisions.  Especially when I parent with a person who doesn't make decisions until they know all the facts.  Quite frankly, that's not an option in the middle of pandemic when the information is changing rapidly.  We literally have to over talk the situation, which I do excel in.  But he however does not.  So that's fun.  Also fun is trying to figure out how best to explain that I do not hate my child if/when I have to make the stupid decision to school her at home this year instead of in school where I know she wants to be.  But school isn't what she knows school to be currently and I WANT HER TO BE THERE TOO.  Like how it was BEFORE.  Not how it is now.  It is so not in the best health interest of staff or students to put them into this impossible situation right now.  If it wasn't safe in March, it sure isn't safe now when my county is actually climbing in numbers.  Also, this is something where we can't make decisions on a month ahead unless it is just prepare to be online and if we can be in person, great.  Because, quite frankly putting my child in a building right now UNMASKED WITH 23 OTHERS SOUNDS LIKE IT IS AGAINST EVERY HEALTH ADVISORY OUT THERE.  So this week has been fun. :)

My favorite pictures from the week:

The high of my week was long walks by myself.

The low of my week was trying to make the impossible school decision.

Meal plan for the week was 

Monday -  Chicken Sandwiches, green beans from the garden
Wednesday -  Cheesy Chicken Burrito Skillet, leftover zucchini bake
Thursday -  leftover cheesy chicken burrito skillet, cucumbers/dip, cherries, cottage cheese
Friday - Homemade patty melt with grilled zucchini

The best money I spent was on not sure
