Boy it's been a week. Lots, yet not much happening.
As we hit May, I find myself lamenting what is our current normal. My birthday is this month. I was supposed to be celebrating with dinner and a concert. They Might Be Giants was doing a tour and performing their album released in 1990. A thirty year celebration of my fav album of theirs. I understand the privilege I have that this was our plan. But also, I see the difficulty in scrapping this plan in favor of doing pretty much exactly what we have been doing for the past nearly 2 month. It's hard. It's hard to think ahead to Mother's Day, my birthday, hubbys birthday, Father's Day and my daughter's birthday. They all happen in the next 6 weeks. I'm working on thinking about all of this in a positive way and trying to make the best of all of this. But it's tough.
I've also been struggling with being angry at extended family. My family is sacrificing so much to keep us, and others safe. And and aunt and uncle decided it was a good idea to go golfing with a friend, whom they don't live with, their adult son who recently flew in from Las Vegas, and their adult son who lives with his own family, and they stood shoulder to shoulder to take a picture at the golf course. Mn opened golf courses because it could be done with appropriate social distancing and provide more activity and jobs. And I'm angry they are doing that.
It's been a struggle. It's a lot to be working through in my head.
