What I Learned in a Pandemic
I hope you and your family are safe. We are all living with the risk of potentially catching this horrific virus. This is a very sad reality for everyone living on our planet. Many people have lost their jobs and lost loved ones, due to the virus and some have committed suicide. Many young people are depressed because they have limited social interactions. No school, no work, no visiting with friends. I am glad my son’s job at Rush, a Trampoline Park, re-opened yesterday, May 28, 2020. I’m nervous about it but I think the risk of mental illness for many of our youth is worth re-opening with strict protections. It is a risk…everything is a risk!
My husband, Karl, is a Professional Golfer/Manager. Hard Labor Creek Golf Course did not close during the shut-down. Who would have guessed that a Golf Course would be considered a necessary business….not me. It did provide a welcome retreat for many people stuck at home. The Golf Course had record revenue. They closed the Golf Shop and people had to check-in through a window.
Simple Solution Organizing is working with clients again. We were only working remotely in March and April. Our clients have the Downsizing bug; another side effect of quarantine. People want to live in spaces with less clutter…less meaningless stuff. We can live with less, we can thrive with less. This quarantine has taught many of us valuable lessons.
My truth: I can get by with a pair of good tennis shoes, work-out clothing, sunblock, robust coffee, computer, internet, and take-out. I would love to hear your truth and how things have changed for you. What have you learned during this time? Please shoot me an email or comment on my Social Media post.
I finished going through card memorabilia. I had 4 cute photo boxes of cards and letters that people sent me through my lifetime. I now have 3 cute photo boxes. I highly recommend going through old memorabilia. It was so much fun! I have not laughed that hard in a long time. I read some of the funnies letters and cards.
The most hilarious cards were the ones that my sister had given me that my mom had saved that I sent her. My mom died when she was just 51 years old. I’m so glad I have these meaningful…priceless, memories of my past. This is why we keep them, to read them and enjoy them. This is why we should keep anything.
Be Safe & Stay Well,
