I’ve decided that the “head in the sand” way of looking at life is the one for me.
Why you might ask?
This is the life for me because otherwise, it’s very possible I’ll send my computer through the window.
Ok, maybe not, but when I think of how pleasant my life would be, not knowing what I know, wow!
Yet, if I did that, I’d be uninformed.
I’d be ignorant.
I’d be a fool.
So, tonight, I’ll have my head in the sand and be happy not knowing stuff.
Tomorrow is a new day, a new attitude, and a new start too. We just have to keep moving forward, pushing past the foolishness, the racism, the ignorance, and make ourselves and the people around us better.
Which means we cannot keep our head in the sand, but keep looking up and forward for the challenges coming.
What else can we do? 🙂

“This is the life for me because otherwise, it’s very possible I’ll send my computer through the window.”
Or in my case I’m about to send my laptop through the television. All I will say is good grief. I think to make my night a little better I’ll watch Elf again. And then tomorrow I’ll wake up and get back to work of prepping for whatever WV’s plan will be.

We are totally on that same level. Tomorrow, I watch some episodes of Avatar, then look how I’ll make my curriculum usable for three different plans!

True, we can’t keep our head in the sand, but we can bury our feet in the sand of a riverbank and toss out a line…and escape…for just a little bit 🙂

Maybe, just a little bit. 🙂 Thanks Debbie! ♥️

I like how you structured the piece. Your opening line is great. Sometimes ignorance is a bliss. We are all allowed to turn off the news, ignore the papers and focus on our well-being. On can do it through watching fun movies or running in the nature – whatever works.Then we have the strength to deal with what is facing us, grow our own and other people’s limited knowledge and take necessary action.

And that a great way of looking at the foolishness going on. I just need to read the articles and NOT the comments! 😁

Yes, we have to see what is happening around us. We have to. Take care.

I agree, we need to see the things around us, but sometimes, we need a break too! ❤

That line between “I must be informed” and “I am going to throw my computer in rage and despair” is a kind of wobbly one, isn’t it? Is Iowa still trying to push forward with everyone in school buildings every day?

> Is Iowa still trying to push forward with everyone in school buildings every day?<
Our governor had a press conference on Friday where she told schools they had to have at least 50% of core instruction face to face and that if a school wanted to go totally online, it had to be approved by her office.
Needless to say, this did not sit well with most teachers and school who have ALL READY told students/parents their plans.
All in all, it's a gigantic mess with a governor who is taking her cues from presidential talking points.
BUT, we'll push forward and see what happens.
