Things are looking up!
It’s been a heck of a year.
It’s certainly tried all of our patience.
Last march seems like a lifetime ago, and none of us really knew what we were in for. Last year’s March blizzard came in the form of COVID-19, and a year later the pandemic still has us tight in its grip.
I’m doing my best to stay patient, telling myself we’re almost there.
A year ago, we were told we had to stay home for two weeks to “flatten the curve.” Those two weeks have turned into 12 months, and when we get restless, we’re punished with a surge of illnesses.
I can tell by looking around that we’ve all grown impatient. There’s less and less people masking up these days, and hopefully that’s a sign that we’re emerging on the other side of this pandemic.
While it’s been trying, it’s also taught us a lot.
So far, I can say I’ve dodged the COVID-19 bullet, and I’d like to keep it that way. I’ve had to have three of these nasal tests in preparation for medical appointments, and I know I won’t miss those.
I’m hopeful that the vaccine roll out hits high gear in the coming weeks, or at least gets out of neutral. It’s the only way we get things back to normal. This thing showed us last summer that it doesn’t care what the temperature or season is. It’s going to keep right on infecting.
We can only hope that there aren’t too many of these people that refuse to take this vaccine, for whatever reason. You people are what is going to keep this virus alive and continuing to change.
Some people think the vaccine is going to control their minds and make them vote Democrat.
I do agree that the numbers of COVID-19 cases perhaps have been inflated. I think most of the flu cases were lumped in with the numbers. Regardless, there have been too many, and countless lives lost because of it.
We need to get things back to normal or whatever the new normal is going to be for portably a year or two. I’d like to say there are going to be huge festivals and parties this year, but I don’t think we’re going to be ready for that.
We’ll get there, though. We made it through the last 12 months, and things are looking up!
