My Brain's Off Switch is Broken

I saw this picture on social media recently, and I feel this so much! 

I told myself that I would not spend my summer worrying about what the fall looks like.

For the most part, I haven't worried. I am confident in my state, school district, administrators, and colleagues' ability to figure it out. I even feel ready to embrace whatever changes are necessary to keep everyone safe.

But that doesn't mean I don't think about it. Every. Day.

At supper tonight, my daughter said "Mom, you keep saying that you don't want to talk about school in the fall and then you keep talking about school in the fall!" She's right. I can't turn it off.

It occurred to me that I have this long-neglected blog, and that this would be a good place for me to tap out my thoughts and clear my head.
