With that said, we're not cavalier about it either. We never really 'went back to normal' when everyone was running about saying vaccines have saved us, everyone back to life! As I've said before, for us lockdown was almost life as normal. We had several years preparing us for last year and we more or less didn't have to adjust much.
Therefore it hasn't been tough for us to continue as we were last year. With my mom living with us, we've still maintained a certain 'keep your distance' and 'wear a mask' approach, whatever those may do. We've loosened a bit, and our boys have been able to at least quasi-socialize again. We've not gone to a restaurant yet, though we've gone to a few local stores to help them out. Plus, with our oldest son cooking the meals, who needs professional chefs at 20.00 a plate?
But with things being what they are, our plans to go anywhere are null and void. We generally can't go anywhere unless my sister watches Mom anyway, and my sister's health issues recently along with the latest Covid
hysteria news has more or less nixed that possibility. So we'll just hunker down and do what our house was prepared to do: get by with our shelves full of games, movies, music, video games and backyard campfires. We may even pitch a tent beneath the trees - you just never know.
Nonetheless, I won't be around until next week. I'm not sure what has happened, but visits and page views have skyrocketed over the last few months. Last month more than doubled the busiest month I had when I was at Patheos and had the casual visitors that site generated. Don't know why, but I'm happy to see everyone come by and offer their two cents. I may not always agree, but I never fail to let the comments give me something to think on.
But joy, safety and blessings to all. I'll be back next week, and have an opinion or three on the crazy that will no doubt happen between now and then. Till then, God's blessings and pax. TTFN.
