My anxiety is amping up again. I mean, we've been at this for a year and it's been very stressful, and maybe the cumulative effect of all the stress is catching up to me. My district is announcing plans to open fully with all kids at once on Thursday. That could be a piece of it. They are looking to rearrange all our special ed programs and I am having to do that tricky balance of being flexible and knowing that I can do hard things, but also knowing what I have enjoyed doing and what I am very good at.
So yeah, lots of uncertainty swirling around.
My flutters are now intrusive and pairing with a racing heart and I'm having to take medication to make them stop, at night at least. It's a horrible feeling.
A good thing is that we have a new friend for Lucky at home... Her name is Emmy, she's three, and she's super sweet, but in isolation so we can do the introductions right. We are so burned from the last time we tried this and it did not work out and was heartbreaking, so the shelter agreed to a foster-to-adopt agreement. This shelter is small, and no-kill, and only cats, and I wish I'd known they existed two years ago. Wish us luck as we get the two cats together this week!
Here is Emmy!
