First, I am going to start with I know I have SO MUCH to be greatful for. I get it. And I know it.
But I am allowing myself a bit of down time this afternoon.
1. I had to cancel our big family trip. With everything going on right now, it was not feasible to pull our huge family together for a full week. I would much rather help be part of the solution, than the problem, so I pulled the plug. But it still sucks. We will push the trip back to spring or fall and hopefully be able to fully enjoy a safer trip at a better time.
2. The hub is still not home. He was due home last Friday, but because of his alternate has Covid, and then weather causing flights to be cancelled, he still isnt home. Hopefully tomorrow, but again today the weather is iffy, and we still arent sure. The bright side of course, is that he has earned several extra days of pay during the delay, but again, this is my pity party.
3. Our trip was my Christmas for the kids and grandkids. I dont have a plan B. I hope everyone understands that the trip will still happen. CHristmas from Gma is just delayed a few months.
My family continues to be safe, everyone is healthy, and the hub and I are still employed. I have so much to be greatful for.
This too shall pass.
My pity party will be short lived, but GAH, this sucks. Covid sucks. 2020 sucks.
Ok, vent over. I will reset shortly, but for this moment, I am just sad.
