Fri. June 19, 2020 – just another day

And a hot one at that.  Humid too, unless I miss my guess.

Yesterday was hot and humid.

I got some work done in the garage, and some work done going through the bins of inventory getting ready to take a bunch to auction.  My previous load sold.  Some surprises, some disappointments.  However, the stuff is gone… and money is coming.

We have swim team today, with time trials.  I’m even more concerned about our attending, as a family in our circle has all tested positive and are isolating at home.  The kids’ music teacher, her husband, and their kids are all sick.  She had gone back to work, and the kids were in daycare, so who knows what the path was.  If they know, they aren’t saying.  It highlights what I’ve been saying though.  It’s still out there.  People are still getting sick.  The reopening is happening because we ‘flattened the curve’ and there is capacity to deal with new cases.  And anywhere people are getting together, anywhere they kept working, they are continuing to get sick.

Speaking of continuing, what can’t forever, won’t.  That includes this nation as we know it.  Think about what has already changed in the last 20 years.  Or 40 years.  Huge swaths of public life are completely changed.   They will continue to change.  We aren’t going back to ‘normal’.  Start working on where you want to be and what you’ll do to get there.

Dinner was Frito Pie.   If you don’t live in the south, that’s when you dump chili on Frito brand corn chips.  Add some chopped onion, and shredded cheese if you want to.  Traditionally served in the opened bags of Fritos and eaten from the bag, I made it in bowls this time.   I’ve done it in the bag, and I’ve done it as a casserole too.   Yum.  Quick and easy too.

Keep working on getting ready for what comes next.  Keep stacking.
