When Johnny Returns to School

With the return to school looming in the background for millions of American kids, questions still remain for many as to how they will be returning to school.  Will it be in an actual school building?  Will it be at home?  Will it be a combination of both?

If SHITHOLE had his way (which he won’t), all kids will go back to school within an actual building.  Because he believes if the kids are in school, then the parents can go back to work.  He couldn’t be more wrong.  Because it’s difficult for a person to go back to work when there isn’t a job to go back to.

Take for instance the furloughed nurse who lives next door to me.  She works in a medical office and was furloughed in April when the doctor’s office decided since they weren’t seeing as many patients in person (if any at all), they didn’t need to keep five nurses on staff.  So they kept two and furloughed the other three.  She still has not been called back to work and now she’s gotten word that the doctor’s office is closing and probably moving to another location.  She’s not even sure where.  They have kind of kept her out of the loop.  At this point she is kind of left hanging, not knowing if she should still wait to see if they call her back or try to look for another gig as a nurse at another doctor’s office. If she can find another position.  So when her kids go back to school at the end of August, chances are she won’t be working but instead looking for work.

How does the person who once ran a restaurant but was forced to close it because he couldn’t make it on doing take-out alone go back to work?  The small business loan he applied for didn’t come through for him.  So when his kids go back to school in two weeks, guess what he won’t be doing?  Working.  I take that back.  He’ll probably be working on helping his kids do their school work, since they’ll be doing it virtually at least through the fall.

So although SHITHOLE thinks he can snap his fat orange fingers and make all the kiddies go back to school and all the parents go back to work, he can’t.  He has no idea how parenting and working works.

I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!
