Embarrassed To Be Happy

17 Apr

With so much pain and suffering in the world, is it super privileged to be content? There are no broken bones, the car is running, we have food and shelter.

I am grateful, and I don’t want to jinx things. I’m not saying that life is perfect. I still struggle with not sleeping. It’s just the way it is. My body hurts from gym work outs, but it’s a good hurt and I’m thrilled with the muscles. Lisa and I have been having date-night once a week. Sometimes it’s the little things.

Moon over Laguna Bacalar.

I’m leaving for California a week from Tuesday and I’m actually excited. Not much really excites me these days. Soon I will be checking the weather, hauling out the suitcase and getting a Covid test. Hi ho hi ho.

Going for a swim.

Until then, I will try to keep the bubble from bursting, however I did buy travel insurance.

    Do you need some Test Kits? The county is giving them away 6 at a time. We could try the mails??

      I would love some. They’ll take months to get here, but you can try. You could also try FedEx. If they get through the border, it would be much faster.

      Kits arrived and just in time! I got home from CA today and found out that my SIL is positive. He took me to the airport! Time to quarantine and test. Thanks so much for the tests.

    We feel really really fortunate too but as long as we try to do our bit and try not to be too selfish, I think it’s ok.
