To say that it’s a strange time is an understatement.
Restaurants, movies, stores, travel is closed.
Toilet paper is gone.
Grocery stores are empty of food.
Work and schools are suspended.
Humanity in hysterics.
I’m in the middle of everything. I go between from seriously concerned to “I’m bored, please let me just walk around Wal Mart.”
But…I think it’s okay. It’s okay to not be sure on how to feel, you know? We can’t live in fear all the time, but we also have to be aware of how serious this illness really is and be conscious of our interactions.
I’m generally a homebody, so being at home relaxing and watching tv shows is fine with me. Last week I was getting frustrated with books so I swore it off saying I hate reading…well, there’s only so many YouTube videos you can watch before getting bored. So I’m back to reading again. I’m off work until April, so I might as well pursue it.
The news and social media is full of horrors. People are either making jokes about it or they are in hysterics. And the two extremities is fraying the ends of my rope. So I’m going on in doses now. Maybe I shouldn’t even look at all for a while.
I hope this madness ends soon. There’s so many things I need to do, want to do and it’s hard to complete certain tasks without going out and wondering if you’re going to catch it and become seriously ill or make someone ill.
What I’m trying to get at is that I’m trying to go for some normalcy so I don’t go insane in an extra crazy world.
How are you all handling this new normal? I hope everyone is healthy and keeping their minds busy.
