I sit here sipping my morning coffee wondering what it will be like. Will I be OK? How will I feel this afternoon? Or tomorrow morning? I brought home teaching materials in case things don’t go well. As a remote teacher for the year, I have the flexibility to teach my students from my home or my classroom. I am incredibly lucky, and I thank my lucky stars daily for this luxury.
This afternoon, I will make my way to a CVS two towns over. My first dose of Moderna should be working its way into my body around 1:30 pm. I am grateful that my husband will drive me, just in case. It’s that just in case that unnerves me. My 85-year-old father’s two doses happened without a hitch, yet a colleague in her early 30s is having a rough go of it after her J&J injection yesterday. It’s a bit of a roulette wheel. All I know is today’s my day, so time to spin.
Thanks for wondering and wandering a bit with me today. And many thanks to the crew at Two Writing Teachers, and the extended SOL community, for giving us the time, space, and encouragement to live the writerly life here every Tuesday throughout the year and daily during the month of March.
