Family vent about coronavirus

Not school related but still a vent - we're off school now and not doing any kind of online learning now so I don't have school stuff to vent about - this is actually a family vent.

Pounding headache

I had to go to a training this morning about TDAs (which are going to be tough for our third grade but that's another story). The training lasted until 12 and then I had my lunch until 12:30.
