BACK IN QUARANTINE, EFF 2020- My New Normal

This is my new normal as a Covid long hauler, 6 months after contracting Covid.

They are discovering that this disease is a VASCULAR one, not a respiratory one, per the news this morning.

If you are also a covid survivor, consider joining the facebook group Survivor Corps for updates on long term health effects, newest findings, and just to share your stories with others going through the same nightmare.

We fell ill with Covid19 in March 2020.

Months later, I am still not 100%- and to add insult to injury, we were exposed AGAIN.

Right now, I am in the middle of the worst panic attack. We’re coughing, I have a sore throat- no fever, but apparently fevers only account for 7 percent (roughly) of symptoms.

Stay safe, everyone.

More Outschool for Homeschoolers: Recorder Class- 2nd Week

View this post on Instagram

Beginning #recorder is part of the Oak Meadow 1st grade homeschool curriculum. I, however, have zero patience teaching it, even though I have a rudimentary knowledge and even love of playing it since childhood.

In the mornings, my half century old brain cells can’t process the noise without coffee- so thank goodness for Outschool dot com and Miss Debbie’s class! (NO, I don’t represent Outschool… I just am obsessed with it. As a family that cannot afford another bout of #covid, this site has saved our sanity and helped Maisie continue supplementing her education in ways I never could have done alone- so y’all WILL be seeing tons more posts about our classes, sorry)

This is Maisie’s second week with her recorder class and we love it (especially ME. OMG. ESPECIALLY ME).

The teacher is so good with the littles and throws in loads music reading, cheer, history, and blurbs even the OM curriculum doesn’t cover.

I will be adding her link in the comments below and also making a bigger post about this class in my blog misssmaisieandme.com @oakmeadowschool #oakmeadow #oakmeadowcurriculum @earthschooling #earthschooling #earthschooling1stgrade #earthschoolingcurriculum #waldorf1stgrade #homeschooling #homeschool1stgrade #waldorfhomeschool #steinerhomeschool @virtuallearning #1stgrade #learnthroughplay #learningathome #homeschoolingbyheart #raisingthefuture #letthembelittle #homeschoollife #magicofchildhood #simplychildren #simplychildhood #unpluggedchildhood #childhoodunplugged #eclectichomeschoolers #outschool @outschool #remotelearning #covid19 #covid19survivor

Yeah, I am obsessed with outschool.com and no, I am not a rep (but, gosh, I should be at this point. I’m in love with it!)

Since we’re stuck in the house all day and I am not willing to risk our health again by taking classes in real time. Outschool and Zoom classes really help fill in gaps in her education- and also give her opportunities to take classes that would normally not be available to us locally, like hula dance class and a live native French immersion class (which she also takes- more about those in other posts).

We have access to these amazing teachers from all over the world, just at our fingertips!

I adore Oak Meadow, but I concede defeat in some of the subjects, like finger knitting and recorder. Outschool really helps me (and gives me short breaks to do my work, use the toilet, eat food, maybe comb my hair, hide in the closet pretending real life is around the corner).

Today, she learned about cleaning the recorder, how to recognize notes, some music history, and the song “Hot Cross Buns”. They are working on the B/A/G notes right now-

Miss Debbie’s class link on Outschool is HERE.

If you try out her class or have other classes to recommend to us, please leave a comment below!

We are covid survivors- I am also a pulmonary embolism survivor.

I will write more about it in this blog at a later date, but I believe in this company.

Homeschool and lockdown parents!!! Are your kids stuck and squirrely in the house? I know mine is. ❤️In this post, you can get 10% off Rebounders from @leapsandrebounds! ✔️Follow their page! ✔️use MissMaisie10 at checkout for your discount OR go to this link: ✔️https://leapsandrebounds.com/discount/MissMaisie10 💋🎈💗😘 I feel very strongly about this tool- we use it daily, hourly- to burn off steam during class (she counts, recites things while bouncing); clears up our lungs and helps us function, even though we’re #covid19 #longhaulers and recovered. I have #lupus, too, so I have to keep my immune system in top shape… just to keep up with an active 6 yr old girl at 51.

The company I buy my rebounders from leapsandrebounds.com, is offering a 10 percent off coupon for those of you who follow us and are going through the same stuff we are- or just want to burn calories or keep the kids from burning down the house. (it is also a good alternative to day drinking for those of us stuck 24/7 inside with every member of the family)

As #covidsurvivors, (which I will write about more in the blog missmaisieandme.com this week- I wasn’t ready to write about it for the longest time, but now I can’t stay silent. Too many I know are suffering or dying), a lot of our ongoing recovery I feel was due to rebounding- or jumping on this mini trampoline-

I learned about #rebounding after my #pulmonaryembolism in 2018 from a friend who worked at NASA. I BELIEVE IT SAVED MY LIFE BOTH TIMES.
