Chris and I are kind of in lock down again with the Delta variant of Covid 19 running rampant in not just our county but our state and our country. Grrrrr.
I so wish we were not here but here we are. There is a lot of finger pointing and blaming but regardless of how we got here we are here and have to cope with it. I have been trying to plan things for my mom’s Celebration of Life in late September and trying to do everything in my power to ensure everyone is safe.
But now with this variant raging I am just not sure of what is going to happen over the next month.
Kids are back in school. Our local Board of Education has decided that masks optional is the way to go.
Covid is spreading. Kids are getting sick. Teachers are getting sick.
It’s the nightmare that we had hoped to avoid by getting everyone vaccinated.
So today when I masked up and ran into a Dollar General store for 5 minutes to get some storage bins for organizing stuff for the service I saw this and was drawn in by the packaging and clever marketing.
I got the bag and gave it to Chris when I got out to the car and he grinned.
Sheltering in place, going to limited places, spending a great deal of time together in the past 18 plus months has been really good and I am grateful that I am married to someone I like to be with. Smile.
I know I am not alone. I miss doing a lot of the things that I took for granted.
We all do.
But at least for a minute today I giggled about the savvy marketing of the folks who make M and M’s and enjoyed sharing some sweetness with my husband.
