Hello. I’m scared. I can’t believe so many people are getting Covid every day. It shakes me to my core how many people are dying. And it’s not even winter yet. How do we get out of this hole we put the country in?

Always thought I would be with a NYC guy on fun, fancy dates in my future. Realizing now that everyone wants casual there, and in my hometown (here for covid), I make significantly more than most guys I go on dates with, many haven’t gone to college, but we have more similar interests and they are interested in a serious relationship. It feels like I’m settling and I’m so jealous of the people who do have the fun, exciting life in the city I dream of.

My brother and sister in law put their five month old in daycare for the first time on Friday. Yesterday they get told by the daycare that there was covid exposure, so they test him and he’s positive. So he literally got covid on his first day at daycare. No symptoms yet but wtf. We saw them on Saturday with our two week old so now we are freaking out that the two week old could have it (my mother in law literally used the other kids burp cloth to wipe my kids face when I wasn’t watching).

Have any of you taken FMLA leave due to a positive COVID case for a member of your household? My husband just tested positive for COVID and I am not sure yet if my 2 toddlers have it. In any event, even if they are healthy, they can’t go back to daycare for awhile so childcare is all on me. I’m wondering if I should apply for FMLA leave so I don’t completely crash my hours, but I am also not sure whether this situation qualifies for FMLA.

My school has been face to face for 7 weeks. The promise is that the kids on the school bus have to wear masks. One of my students recorded and uploaded a video to Youtube.

It’s sickening.
