Yep, I'm ready for a bit of R&R and it can't get here soon enough. Just four more days and I'm off for nine days, ahhhhhhhhhhh….
Not really doing much, just planting the garden, going on a few adventures, and doing some home improvements :) But at least I will get a break from the insanity for a bit.
I see so many people yelling about reopening both pros and cons, and all I can do is laugh. Does anyone really believe things were truly shutdown??? Because from where I have stood nothing has really changed over the course of the last several months other than a handful of people 'said' they stayed home and I use that term very lightly because I frankly have only known a couple of people who actually took things seriously and did remain at home.
Hence the reason I desperately need a vacation...
The other day I read an email that really made me go hmmmmm…. Let's just say if you have enough money to give the right person, well, it can buy you a lot in times like these. So no amount of what is right or wrong about this whole thing really truly matters to those it should. Just saying... So post away, pro and con it all you want, but you're wasting your time and energy and making enemies either way you go. The times where what the People want are long over I'm afraid.
I know shocking I would be so callused about all of this, but let me just say while people were ordered to stay home, I have my little 'get out of jail free card' in my truck that I never once I had to show anyone while on my way to my work. I have watched my customer count go up and down, depending on the day of the week, nothing out of the ordinary for this time of year. In fact, customer count for this time of year has pretty much stayed the same day in and day out. Yet, our hours get cut, and we work one per shift in the midst of chaos.
So if I sound callused about the whole thing, maybe it is because I am. I've had four family members (that I know of) who've had the virus, one who passed away this week from it. It is real, folks, and no amount of facts or pushy posts are going to change how people react to it. Everyone has free will, and boy have I seen free will being displayed all over the place. I've also seen first hand how people can be bought, and it disgusts me to say the least.
Now, would I have been out and about in it if I was not considered 'essential'? No, I wouldn't have. But I can also say I am more of a nonsocial person anyway. So, staying at home would not have bothered me at all, because that's what I do when I'm not at work already. I clearly understand there are many social butterflies out there who require interaction with people, I raised one and one of my grandchildren is the same way. But even they have played it safe, stayed home, and dealt with what comes with all of this.
I guess you could say I'm just ready for some time away from the insanity of what our world has become. Some time to recoup and revamp my system before I go back out into it once again.
So stay safe out there. Do what you feel is right. And by all means be considerate of those who have no choice but to be out there every day.
Everyone have a good night!!!
Blessings to all!!!
