I don’t know about you but I’ve run out of chores to do around here. There is nothing left to paint or refinish, no closets to clean out, no more mulch to throw. Even the dogs are as groomed as I could get them even if it isn’t very pretty. This can end whenever they want.
I’ve been on the fence about how this is being handled but I think I agree with Elon – set us free. For better or worse, this country’s population does not take well to orders and all the half baked efforts to quarantine have produced half baked results. As far as I can tell we still hit 1 million cases and there are plenty of hot spots out there.
The truth is we need to learn to live the new normal. Masks everywhere, more virtual working and learning and general avoidance of other humans for the next 12-18 months until they can get a vaccine. Basically everything is cancelled for the foreseeable future. Force the most vulnerable into true quarantine to protect them. And I say this as a mom of a child with asthma who has taken all of this pretty seriously.
But these are my thoughts and who knows what the powers to be are thinking. Guess I’ll make sourdough bread. Have a great day. See you tomorrow.
