I just spend 3 hours of my life in Google Meets. And I have 3 more meetings tomorrow. I'm so over it.

I spend 30 minutes a day with my whole class. It feels like 30 hours.

Somehow I ended up having to meet with each group for collaboration. 8 meets a week with different staff.

I would much rather be meeting with kids or teaching kids. One of the cons of being a special area, I guess.

My head hurts. Did yesterday, too. I am going to take off early and go for a walk.

I really need to get away from tech for awhile too. I've spent all day staring at a computer screen.

Tired of sitting!

I'm used to walking around all day in the classroom. I'm sitting in front of a computer too much. (Like now )

I tried adding in some other type of exercise- Fell up the stairs (condo building) and landed on my knee, mostly. Swelling is starting to go down after two weeks. Hurt my back. On day five of that injury, slowing getting better.

Going outside for a walk isn't the best idea here. I live downtown.

When the back is better, I'll go back to the Simply Fit balance board.

I have lived on tech for years! Often just checking messages but too much time on, for sure.

This week as our teachers ramped up, I have been on constantly. No breaks on Monday until I went to bed. By Wednesday after dinner, I put my computer away and forced myself to just focus on tv. I actually made my dh do that, too!

I think I usually get more breaks than I think. I will be putting mine away in the evening during the rest of the year. Too much. Too crazy.

I would rather spend time with your magnificent dogs. Teaching virtually is something no one signed up for. Hang in there as best you can.

because the low number depresses me. I hate all of this sitting. I'm getting up and taking movement breaks, but it's just not the same. I'll never take teaching in an honest- to- goodness, real classroom for granted ever again.

I have some (non-teaching-related) ZOOM meeting later this morning, so I've got to throw on a top and makeup fast pretty soon.

I was enjoying the break from my rough classes at first but now I'm sick of computers and internet meetings. We don't stop until May 21 here.
