#SoCS ~ 3/13/21

Linda prompts us with “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “day/week/month/year.” Use one, use them all, use them any way you’d like. Enjoy!” She also makes a suggestion to “Basically, talk about your last year is what I’m saying …” Well some things are best left unsaid. Though baring my soul would be mighty therapeutic. Hmm. Decisions, Decisions!!

I have sort of done that already with my whiny needy posts throughout 2020. March 6, 2021 was the one year anniversary of the day our life changed forever courtesy of the Rona. Boy howdy do I remember those early days of fear and psychological warfare. Not knowing much about the dreaded virus caused quite the spin. Wear a mask, don’t wear a mask, wear a mask again. Sheltering in place, stays orders, each state left to its own devices. People dying prematurely in a most painful perverse way. The overrun hospital system. Flattening the curve. Isolation, job loss, dream loss, end of life as we knew it. Then vaccines offer hope but not a complete cure all. I have come to the conclusion that this whatever this is will never be over. No back to normal. But letting ya in on secret … normal is overrated anyway.

And throughout it all my family was spared. Not sure why. No rhyme or reason. Just Because. And that’s the tattoo I want to get to commemorate our experience in 2020 “Just Because”.

As always, more to come.

  1. It is good your family is ok. I think about this virus or a different version of it hanging around indefinitely but don’t want to go there. I hope it diminishes and gets weaker and that we don’t have to go through a threat like this ever again. It is hard to think how much longer we may have to take precautions. Just take it one day at a time I guess.

  2. Glad you were spared. Grateful our experience was as mild as it was, although the ripple effect it had in our family dynamics was almost as bad as the virus itself. Here’s to a better year!

    1. Oh Janet! Proof that everything is relative when you say almost as bad. Mild to counterbalance the ripple. I may be naive but I really do think God doesn’t give more than we can handle. Though in the moment, does not always feel that way. We’ve had some doozy stuff in 2020. I’ve kept a few nasty tidbits to myself so unlike my blabbing self. Definitely here’s to a better year!!!

    1. I am sorry to hear that your family was touched by the virus. In some cases it is not lethal which to me is why some people believe not more than the flu. They play the odds. I am not a gambler though. One loss is one too many. All four in immediate family are vaccinated too. We have chronic health conditions qualifying under 1B. Still going to mask it up though and social distance unless in our own company.
