Weekend Plans Post: Shaking My Head Like I’ve Napped Too Long
The snow came really fast and it was entirely gone within 24 hours. That picture? That’s from Monday. Tuesday? It was gone. Well, there is still some in the areas where the sun’s light doesn’t touch but the roads, sidewalks, driveways? Dry as a bone.
When we started the whole pandemic thing a million years ago, we had no idea how long the lockdown and quarantine and Safe At Home/Safer At Home was going to last. Now? It feels like you can count the number of days it’ll be until it’s over. Like, count in your head. Not on fingers and toes, not yet… but, like, you know when you ask a 6 year old to count to 100? They can? They might miss a number here or there in the 40s but, sure, they can count to 100.
In 100 days, it’ll be July. Independence Day weekend, if the Google isn’t lying. Colorado intends to have everybody eligible to get a shot by mid-April… which, due to scheduling, should have everybody who wants a second shot have a second shot by mid-June… which would make the 4th of July the light at the end of the tunnel, I think.
We’ve just got to make it another 100 days. You can count to 100 in your head. Heck, 6 year olds can count to 100. Give or take a number here or there.
Since this is going to be a big summer, this weekend will be spent doing the usual Safe At Home kinda stuff (since we still have to get to there from here). A grocery delivery, chores around the house, maybe a drive up to Cascade if Sunday is particularly sunny, maybe some laundry. Just gotta hunker down. Just gotta get to the finish line. 100 days.
Hope was finally in sight the same week as a half foot of snow… Just gotta get there. Keep it together. Just gotta get there.
So… what’s on your docket?
