COVID-04...

Too much COVID crap going on. Way too much. Make it all stop. Please!

Rollback

As I reported earlier this past week, the county I live in and a few surrounding ones have rolled back the COVID recovery phase we were in. It’s only a test for a couple weeks and it really only seems to affect restaurants, bars, and public gatherings. I wish it affected more, though. The streets and sidewalks are just as busy as ever and it’s maddening.

DMV

If we rolled back everything for a while, maybe I wouldn’t have to worry about going to the DMV to get my new driver’s license and Real ID, waiting in line 20+ minutes, and then leaving with neither because the office closed down for two weeks because of a confirmed COVID-19 case amongst their employees. Thankfully, Illinois license expirations have been extended through February 2021 and Real IDs won’t be necessary until October 2021. Small blessings. 

Pharmacies

If we rolled back everything for a while, maybe we wouldn’t hear stories about people going to the drive-thru of a local pharmacy only to find it closed, the whole store closed, at 4:30 p.m., on a Thursday. No reason given whatsoever, which, in this day and age, means “confirmed COVID-19 case.” Ugh. 

School

If we rolled back everything for a while, maybe Nathan’s school wouldn’t have its first confirmed case of COVID-19. Two months clean only to have this happen. What drives me nuts is they can’t give us details. We don’t know who had it, we don’t know with whom they were in contact, all that jazz. We do know that the class is being asked to quarantine for 14 days as well as everyone the school has identified as having had contact. Nathan is not one. He still gets to go to school. 

Plan

At least I know where not to look for ideas. The White House. Or maybe they do have a plan

Here we are most of the way through October and I realized I was going to have to start planning and scheduling my Kevin’s 7 year-end lists. That’s when I realized something else, much like how everything else went kablooie...

Marty came up big last week with Collective Soul’s Hints, Allegations and Things Left Unsaid. It’s entirely possible that any number of regular players could get this #MiniMusicMonday challenge photo. Could it be you? I’d like to Keep It In...
