Honestly, a lot of my life does feel normal-ish. Fewer people are wearing masks. I’m sure someone will shriek this is bad but here, we haven’t had a lot of cases at all. If you’re worried, wear one. I’m not and thus, only do when an establishment requires it. Because that’s their prerogative and I understand that if I want to shop there, there are rules. If more people just used their brains – about everything going on right now – we’d all be in a better spot. /Endrant
So anyway, kids are officially done with school so they’re a little more open and free to do whatever it is they want. Thankfully some camps opened so we have 3 weeks set up for them soon. My husband is still home and they keep saying people are going back to the office but then they pull back. I know he’s ready for that. The one major thing we’ve done that is normal is going out to eat. Seems like the places are being very safe and clean. Breweries just reopened this week with a reservation system, which sounds good to me. Yeah it takes a little pre-planning but it’s nicer, really, than showing up and having a place be slammed. I like when there’s fewer people anyway.
Work is work and I’m plugging away at it. Day to day life definitely feels a lot different now but I won’t be using the term “new normal” anytime soon. It feels a lot like an offshoot of the crap that is the overreaction to everything. Along the lines of “stay home/stay safe” and “We’re all in this together.” While true, can we please stop labeling everything and coming up with catchy little phrases for things? It’s so disingenuous that I want to vomit. SO, sorry if these opinions piss you off. My blog, my ideas. And I’m over the bullshit.
I didn’t mean to go off on you. But I guess I’m tired of stuff. Aren’t we all??
For freebie week, here’s a couple songs I’ve revived lately as we’ve gotten in the pool more. Well, when it isn’t raining!
