Hi, how are you? Last weekend almost feels like a lifetime ago, in a way. Is it totally crazy where you live? I am sure you need some coffee! Or is it a tequila day? Here the crowd is divided, some are hoarding toilet paper and toothpaste, and some go out to afterwork to have beers with their friends. The schools are open, (with a few exceptions.) I’ve been working all week as usual, even had some education myself on Monday (quality self evaluation of the school.) Still Corona is classified as the biggest threat to Sweden in decades. One person have been diagnosed with the Corona virus in my town, and several in my region. We are urged to limit social contacts.
I’m not panicking in any way, but of course this is worrisome. Maybe not knowing how this will affect us, and society as we know it, is the worst? What is your two cents about the situation? Are you taking any precautions? Are you prepared?
The song Getting Down On The Mountain by Corb Lund comes to my mind. I’m not the prepper I once was, but surely I have seeds for a big garden, if the situation demands. The surrounding forests are full of food as well, and there is water in abundance all around. I’m sure every one will experience some hardships, the question is how much? And for how long? As always, I believe that keeping ones spirit high, and staying strong is critical. I’m definitely going to do everything I can to make life “normal” for my daughter, whatever happens. Luckily normal have been living in many different ways during my daughter’s first years; off grid in the desert, living on a (few) ranch(es,) living in an RV, living ten minutes from the strip in Las Vegas, and now in a tiny house in the outskirts of the outskirts of a middle-sized town in Sweden. She’s pretty flexible, so am I.
Do you need a refill of your coffee? I feel that we are doing good. I am good..but still, this is one of those times when it sure would of been nice with a strong, good man by my side. One that doesn’t walk away when things get a little hard, someone else to count on besides me. LOL. I hope that you are doing good! Keep calm, and be strong my friend. Thank you for having coffee with me today.
