Even I have to admit things have been weird.
I dropped the youngest child off at the airport today to return to her home in Southern California. In normal times the Southwest terminal is PACKED. Dozens of cars are lined up to drop off passengers. Today mine was the only car. The only person waiting was my daughter’s boyfriend. He stood there at a distance wearing his mask.
I dropped her off and returned home to a bored husband who is frustrated at trying to do anything with the government (concerning his business.)
While my daughter was in one of her online courses yesterday another student had a melt down over the lack of support the professor is giving. You’d never see that in a real classroom. It isn’t the first time and it won’t be the last.
And if you think going to the grocery store is a hassle try being a Vampire right now. I’ll spare you the uncomfortable details.
Several friends have spoken to me about their frustration with those who have used this time to spout unnecessary political venting.
Others have spoken of their lack of motivation when it comes to creative endeavors. Yes, we have all the time in the world but working on anything has become just sort of weird.
But on a good note my garden is beautiful. My pets are happy. I’m in touch with everyone. I see the humor that has come out in people. I’ve seen the humor and creativity more than the ugliness.
So stay creative. I’ll try to do the same. If not creative just stay positive. Go for a walk. Watch a movie. Read a book. Listen to music. Find a new podcast. Text an old friend. Pass on funny memes. Stay away from protests. Don’t be a dick. Feel free to share the form below with your most whiney assed friends.
