Saturday Thoughts

  • Every once in a while I stop to think how different life is for other people in certain places and circumstances. Right now, for example, there are people in this country who are furious over Biden’s vaccine mandate and screaming that it’s fascism, while people like me aren’t bothered by the mandate. We took the vaccine willingly, months ago, because it was a no-brainer, not to mention the right thing to do. It is hard to fathom the way those other people are experiencing the current reality.
  • Speaking of the current reality, the third week of in-person school begins on Monday, but not for Marshall. He has developed symptoms of a cold. He’s vaccinated against Covid, and he probably just has allergies or a common cold, but I can’t in good conscience send him to school without making sure it isn’t Covid. So, he needs a test, and I made an appointment for him tomorrow. Problem is, even if the rapid test comes back negative, he still has to wait until the PCR results come back negative before he can return to school. So, no school for him Monday, possibly Tuesday, too. And if the results come back positive, I am going to be very upset.
  • To add to my headaches today, there is something wrong with our water system. The water pressure keeps dropping too low. My husband called a service person out to look at it this morning, but he wasn’t happy with the guy’s suggested fix or the estimated price. So, we have to put up with the problem for now. We have enough water pressure for most things, but I can’t do laundry, and I am falling farther and farther behind on it. Laundry Mountain is expanding into Laundry Mountain Range.
