What’s Good in Tater Town 6/28/20

I’ve reached a point again where I feel like I should give up on this weekly post. Every week blurs together and nothing really changes. I still think, though, that it is a good thing to try to find the good, so here goes

1. We are all still healthy.

2. We are still OK financially.

3. We had a nice family dinner for Father’s Day.

4. Being back at physical work means having actual face to face(at a distance) conversations with people not in my immediate family.

5. It also makes the days go by faster.

6. Each day inches me closer to retirement.

7. My daughter officially has a place to live in the fall.

That’s all I can think of for now. At one point at had hope that by now we might be heading toward a break in the pandemic, but it looks like that won’t happen. I’ve had to accept the fact that I can’t quit my job and take a sabbatical. Finding the good will be important moving forward.

      That sucks. There’s still. I guarantee she will end up with in person classes, but she still says she would rather be there taking online classes than home.

        My mole says that gu has stated that classes will not be entirely online but a mix, but all kids will be on campus. The big issue apparently is making sure there’s a quarantine spot for kids who do get sick

        UMD plans a hybrid of online and in person but it will all depend on how things look as we get closer. They only guaranteed housing for freshmen

        Gu is using hotels. Of course my kid wants a hotel room…
