The days are passing by, we are starting to get a bit restless but what can we do? Cases seem to continue to skyrocket in Italy, the peak is expected to be in April. We still have a long time to wait.
In the meantime, I have been applying to online teaching jobs to have something to do as well make some money. I have no idea if I will be paid for this month that we aren’t going to school. In theory, yes, we should though I work at a private school but they receive money from the government as well. I also have undetermined contract which means I should be paid no matter what. I am not even sure if if, when, and how much I will be paid for February, a month I worked entirely. So yes, Americans, you are not the only one struggling economically. Luckily, my husband has a good job we’ll be OK, but that is not for everyone.
Besides that, we are fine. Yesterday we passed a lot of the day playing on the balcony and working on “school work”. I try to distance myself from the news as much as possible during the day. I also try to not allow the children to have too much screen time and encourage them to play with their toys.
Here’s to another day passing in quarantine. Until tomorrow.
