A while back I wrote about how it’s Hard to Be a Blogger When You’re Boring. I am reminded of that as I sit here contemplating what to write. I live in a place where everything is open at full capacity. I am fully vaccinated. Our positive percentage rate is below 1%. We have fewer than 200 people in the hospital with Covid. We are routinely reporting fewer than 100 new cases a day. Life is pretty much back to normal. Unfortunately, my normal life looks a lot like Covid life.
I rarely leave the house unless it is to walk the dog. I do my food delivery on Thursday. I go to church Sunday morning. Occasionally, I go to the library to pick up a book. I might go through the drive-thru to get a cup of coffee. That’s it.
I still have not eaten at a restaurant since March 2020. Everyone else in my family has. My son went out west to hike and camp with friends and at restaurants when in town. My wife and daughter went out to eat with my mother in law when they visited her. None of them ever show an interest in going out when they are here. We did leave the house last week to go see my son’s new condo. We did get food at a restaurant, but it was a fast food restaurant and we ate in the car because there was no indoor seating.
I was boring when I left the house every day to go to work. I’m even more boring now. I think I need to at least go have a coffee and pastry at Panera one morning while I write just to experience a little bit of my old normal. That is if I can think of something to write.
It’s hard to be a blogger when you are boring.
