I remember now why I evolved into introversion over the years:
I don’t want to witness, be surrounded, or entertained by idiocy. 😳
It’s been a week. But, I’m happy the sun is out, this has had a positive effect on my psyche. I did some gardening, some re-planting existing plants, some dividing, some lawn-mowing, some dirt shoveling, all of which reminisces to long-ago bootcamp soreness.
Tells me as well that I am out of shape.
But the time has come to take the bikes out. I think the kids went yesterday and navigated one of the many bike trails through one of the parks nearby…maybe I’ll go with them next time.
There is much happening and much not happening. But a realization has smacked me upside the head, despite a lingering hope that a somewhat modified normal will return shortly:
The new normal is neither new, nor normal, and always evolving.
We are at the beck and call of conflicting politicians who may or may not follow their own advice.
Some of them are cringe-worthy to listen to (not the orange one, he belongs to another country and doesn’t dictate to me) but frankly, if you’re introverted like me, none of it matters because you’re just staying home anyway.
But I’m a little sick of this lock-down. I’m suffering from a little too much familial togetherness… 😶 Sure would because nice if other inmates would leave a little more often…and not when I’m out grocery shopping. Go out when I’m home. Sheesh. 🙄
My partner started teaching the summer semester to full class loads this week. He will be really busy since they do compressed courses through May and June. He’s on vacation July and August but I have no idea what summer will look like this year: will campsites be open? Will pools?
The province also announced the kids won’t be returning to school this year. The plan is to open schools in September again, but with post-secondary institutions already planning for a remote fall semester, I don’t know how this will work for the kids. I bet the virus will hit again with the return of the cool weather…
Anyway, we’ll have a puppy by then so life at casa WoW will continue with its lunacy. 😃
It’s Friday today. How is everyone spending their weekend?
