I really have not posted in a long time and it is a shame. It has been a little over a year since Biden was sworn in as the President and I for one, really enjoy not waking up at 4 in the moving to read the news to find out what stupid thing the President tweeted. That being said, we are now 2 years deep into the COVID-19 pandemic and it is getting to be a real drag.
There was a wonderful period, just around Thanksgiving 2021, that Covid was really starting to bottom out and we were able to host a lovely Thanksgiving with the whole family, but then omicron hit…ugh. Yet another Christmas without family or friends. It is now February and we still have not exchanged gifts. Maybe for our birthdays in March.
I wanted to write this post for the future, to really let those who did not live through Covid-19 just how it affected our daily lives, even years into the pandemic.
Hopefully, it will transition to endemic soon and just get your shots and move one with life, but I don’t see that happening soon. You see, dear reader, 40% of America is really stupid. Do they like living like this? Are you just in denial? I know your newscasters in right wing media say it’s all a hoax, but it is not and you can live in Foxworld, you have to live in the real world, with real death and real consequences. The official death toll in the US is a little over 900,000 now, with around 1,000,000 deaths total, taking into account the extra deaths. That a lot of people. Now, on a more personal note.
My family and myself are doing fairly well. It will be 3 years in our home in April and I am so thankful we moved when we did. Being stuck in a small home or apartment must be hell. My son is doing well in sophomore in high school. He was remote learning for half of last year, but now it back to full time, in classroom, which is really necessity. Remote learning is just not the same.
For me, I am celebrating my 7the year as a design test engineer. I really enjoy the work and the 10 minute commute. My wife’s health has been up and down, but after her surgery last year, she is doing better.
Our two dogs are going well, but our little boy Ricky cracked his dew claw on goodness knows what, so he has a cute little tractor bandage on this paw. Enough of my rambling for now, I will make is a late new year’s resolution to post more. Done is better than perfect.
