Re-assessing how I look at things that everyone touches: card readers, door handles, elevator buttons, bathroom fixtures. I was never a germaphobe before, but I find myself now finding ways to touch things less often. I’ve turned it into a game I play with myself.

I'll have teenagers in my classroom again on Monday, and I'm worried about anxiety-- both mine and theirs. Especially since our superintendent told us today that masks would remain optional for our district.

I've realized that I need less. Less of certain people in my life, definitely less 'things'. I'm also far more content at home than I thought I would be. 1 thing I do miss is my horse, he passed just b4 COVID hit so I need to get out there & find a new barn buddy.
