Thursday Thoughts ~ 7/1/21

I’m feeling a little raw. Used up. Empty. Needing that vacation I’ve been whining about. But, … I’m afraid to go anywhere. I like the idea of getting away and back to normal yet I’m suspicious and simply not ready. Is it safe? Riddle me that Batman.

I just bit into a potato chip and it’s all I can do not to eat the entire bag. I do that when I’m stressed. Eat! Example, when my dad told me my Aunt Annie, the last of my mom’s siblings, had died, I hung up the phone, our old land line. I didn’t cry or say anything to B & the kids. I simply walked to the pantry, got out the Oreos, and ate a whole row.

Well, I’m not going to do that now. Before breakfast. Maybe after? LOL. I’m going to redirect these emotions into some music. Ahhhh now that’s the stuff.

As always, more to come.

  1. Perhaps a little vacation would be good for you after all you have been through.

    Do you mean covid-safe? I have started to feel that there are always going to be those who are much too casual about the risks of this virus and those who are cautious in the extreme. Here in the UK, we observed the strict lock-down rules, but since social distancing restrictions began to lift one by one we have started to do more. But we are very observant. If we go to a restaurant and it does not feel safe, we won’t go there again, we have even left venues when they seemed to be breaking the rules on numbers. We have had lots of garden parties in recent weeks, if someone is careless about hygiene and gets too close to others, they won’t be invited again.

    I think everywhere you go it is now going to be a juggle between trying things that we have not been able to do for a lot of the past twenty months, and deciding if they feel safe or not. I think it will be that way for a while.

    But it is so good to make the most of the summer – enjoy the blue skies and warm sunshine while they are here. My advice is to go out and try them though – if it does not feel safe walk out and find somewhere that does feel safe so you can relax and enjoy your time there. I expect to find more reviews mentioning how safe venues feel from a covid point of view.

    1. Yes I thinking Covid safe. Your advice is wonderful and spot on. I’m returning to work next week and leery about it. But all will be well or as it should be. I’ll just stop overthinking everything
