After this weekend will the be the start of the last full week of August. For me, that signals the end of summer. I could ask where did the time go, but at the same time, when I try to think about May, that seems so long ago. What was I even doing in May? Can you remember?
It was a summer without travel, friends, restaurants, and all the usual things people do when the weather is nice. It’s ok though. I had low expectations for the summer. I just wanted to make sure I stayed healthy and kept those close to me as healthy as possible as well. That’s probably as much as one could ask for given the circumstances.
I’m thankful for my health, the health of those around me, and my continued employment. My expectations for the fall will probably be the same as they are now. It may seem like we’ve been living in a pandemic for ever but for most of us, it’s been just six months so far. We probably still have a long way to go, so I’m ok with taking it day by day.
It’ll be Christmas before we know it!
