Yes, I know that we are all only STILL in this situation because of people who can’t seem to do basic things in the service of public health. While I would love to be able to stop people from doing stupid things (or failing to do things) I would be much more powerful than I am right now. A blogger can only dream.
In March, I decided that this would not be a wasted year.
My natural pessimism (or perhaps pragmatic ability to see the world in that I see clearly) led me to immediately believe that I would be there for a long time. And I was determined not to waste this year.
Some of that was selfish stuff, like getting a pop up pool for the summer so I had something nice to do. I mean real achievements, something that I can look back on and not feel like I am wasting my precious, feeling moments in this life.
