Me: Teaching purely online. Neighborhood: In shambles due to windstorm earlier this week that left more damage than that freak tornado a few years back. Power: Currently on Day 3 of being non-existent. Work location: Hanging out at my parents because they live on the one street in town that has power and internet. Mental State: Exhausted. Since my folks' house was a handy close-by spot where we could plug my daughter's medical equipment into, I figured I would just keep working. But today I just feel so out of it. Everyone I know is telling me to just take the day off, but I figure since I have the means, I should keep going. But my yard is still a mess, I'm not sleeping well, my house is a disaster (the tidiness factor, no trees falling on my house!) I know that anyone else in my position I would tell to take a mental health day. But to myself... hey, you have a place to stick the kids and a comfy couch and most importantly, internet. Keep working!
