When are we going to learn?

It’s been a difficult couple of days for me and that’s okay. Life isn’t supposed to be easy, right? I’m really tired but having a terrible time falling asleep at night. There are things in my life that I’m worried about and again, that’s okay. I feel like despite some of these challenges, I’m still incredibly lucky to be where I am, and I don’t want to lose sight of that.

The boys didn’t go see their mom this weekend and that meant no break for me. Everyone is being extra cautious as a result of COVID, and if someone in either household isn’t feeling right, we tend to pull the plug. Their mom was under the weather so the visit was canceled. The kids were bummed out but they’d been home from school anyway with a cough and a headache. It was best for everyone.

I’ve been working a lot more lately and that’s not a bad thing. Business is picking up and I’m trying to stay on top of things. It’s a little challenging for me but I totally got this.

I’m getting the boys their booster shot this week and we’ll see how they do with that. Emmett doesn’t have school on Monday because so many teachers are out with COVID, they can’t staff the building. I’m so tired of COVID and the impact it’s having on our lives. I’m grateful that we’re all healthy, but I’m also frustrated and angry because most of this could be avoided. If everyone did their part, we would be so much better off right now. When are we going to learn?

The kids are getting tired of all the limitations put on their lives as a result of COVID, especially in Ohio. It’s really bad here right now, and only getting worse.

I’m tired, overwhelmed, frustrated, and wishing I could fix this whole thing. Unfortunately, it’s not something I can fix and that sucks. Overall, life is good though. I’m grateful to be alive, and everyday is a chance to continue making forward progress. My kids are healthy and as happy as can be expected under these circumstances. That in and of itself is a something worth celebrating.

Last week was the anniversary of my grandfather’s passing. I miss him so much. I’m overly emotional, and that seems to complicate my life sometimes. I’m also one of those people who gets hung up on things likes dates, milestones, and anniversaries. Things like this hit me pretty hard but I don’t talk about it much. I’m not even sure why I’m mentioning it right now, aside from the fact that it feels good to get that out. Regardless, I miss you grandpa. Life just isn’t the same without your, loving, mischievous influence.

Anyway, it’s been harder to focus on things recently because my mind seems to be preoccupied with other things. I have a meeting in the morning, and a few more throughout the week. I need to have my head on straight to get through these. I have a few opportunities to onboard new clients this week and I want that to go well. I’m also finalizing the format for season 5 of the podcast, and booking guests (as well as sponsors, if anyone is interested 😉).

I hope you folks have a great start to the week.

People in our county are completely ignoring covid. Well, except for senior citizens and immuno-compromised.
