I can’t believe I haven’t written since April 12 and feel ashamed that I haven’t! I think there’s only been a few times over all these years that I haven’t written at least twice a month. I think I’m going to have to give myself the challenge of writing a blog post a day for ??? TBD. If I do it for a month do I wait and start in June? Or do I start May 15 and go for two weeks? I could still go a month if I can manage two weeks can’t I?
It’s been frustrating because when I have little pockets of time to write I’M TOO TIRED! Yes, most times I just want to sit on the couch after work and do NOTHING. Not even get myself my water. Just do nothing!
Yes, I’m busy. Work, relationship, family. We are all exhausted with the status of the lockdown and I keep seeing comments on the few news outlets I still follow on social media that think we should still go into a full lockdown meanwhile40% of the province is now vaccinated and by May 11 our region should reach 50% and by the end of this horrible stay-at-home order it will be at 60%… a mere fifteen away from what they are deeming as herd immunity (since herd immunity in the medicine world has always been 70%). My thinking is that if the case numbers don’t go down, then someone, somewhere is lying to us!
As for writing, well, it has been pretty non-existent though I have done a little here and a little there. I have a new one for the paper, IF they want it. I wanted to have three but it’s impossible.
On the other hand, I’m at the trailer! This is fabulous! It might be pouring rain but as I sit at the kitchen table to work I can look out the window directly in front of me and see the lake anytime I want to. You have no idea how amazing that is to me. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but, for me, it has changed my world since Saturday and I will be sorry to leave tomorrow and not get back up here for almost two weeks.
Unfortunately with two cats and a daughter at home it’s still not possible to just uproot completely and be here. Of course laundry becomes an issue too so there are reasons to leave.
I do hope to get some solid writing done here this summer as I do plan on taking some vacation time… all of it… this summer!
I will, as always, keep you posted on changes and updates! I missed this!
