I have been picking away at some dolls. It is very slow going. I am very tired when I get home from school and am missing a half hour of afternoon working time since we are on a slightly different time schedule until next week. Adjusting to getting up earlier again, the mental strain, more work than I have needed to do in a day in months, all of it has combined to make me less productive with dolls. I am trying not to freak out. I know sooner or later I will adjust and I will be more alert in the afternoons. I'll be able to get more done in a day. For now I struggle a little bit.
I did get a little bit of sewing done at least. I had an outfit for a cowboy that needed sewing and I managed to get that finished. I also got some masks adjusted, nose wires added and so on. Travis goes back to school next week and he is going to need more masks so he has enough to have some in the wash and some ready for use. Sewing, sewing, sewing...After I got the cowboy outfit sewn I was going to work on getting the cowboy dressed, but I realized, while searching for a head, that the body drawer needed organizing. Again. I bought a lot of stuff at the live sale KC's Galloping Gals held in August. When the stuff arrived I basically took dolls out of boxes and shoved stuff in the drawer. And it was getting hard to close. I have a lot of dolls. So I pulled everything out, sorted properly, and then neatly put everything away.
My job switched at school this week. I was given the choice of staying a 1:1 or switching to a SIP inclusion para. I decided to switch since the 1:1 kid is fully remote so I likely could not be very helpful to them. Now I can help a lot of kids and a lot of teachers. Most of the schedule is split, so the sped teacher and I are double booked each block. Now instead of the kids just not having supports part of the time they will always have either the sped teacher or me. I imagine every kid (and adult) will need as many supports as possible this year. 2020 is the strangest year ever.
