OT: Short Whinefest
For DS24's birthday, we had tickets to see the Washington Capitals Ice Hockey team. Canceled.
Hotel reservations in DC were luckily fully refunded. Canceled.
DS24's Christmas present was a trip to Greenville, SC. I had to rebook for June. Southwest canceled the flight.
I was able to rebook our Airbnb to June, but had to cancel that when our flight was canceled.
Was supposed to visit DD26 in Austin. Southwest changed my flights from nonstop in and out to flights with 1 connection inbound and 2 connections outbound. My daughter told me not to come - to be safe. Canceled.
I had a bike event this coming Saturday. It's now an unsupported social distancing ride. I get it. I'm out cuz it's over an hour away and in Pennsylvania. Not supposed to cross state lines.
I was supposed to take a kayaking course between May and August. Looks like it's canceled.
I have cycling events once or twice a month through October. Not sure what's going to run.
Meanwhile, I'm sitting on my butt and eating too much.
My one hyper friend has sent me an exercise routine that we're going to start on Sunday. Boy, do I need it.
The good news is that I might be able to get my kayak out on the water once the water temps are warmer = sanity.
I can ride my bikes and there are plenty of places to walk around my house and a short drive away.
DS24 and I are going for a drive in the mountains this weekend just for a change of scenery.
My DS29 is talking about flying home for a long visit once this virus has abated. He works at a hardware store in Denver and is being worked pretty hard.
DD26 is working from home and stir crazy.
So, I'm bummed (just like everyone else is) and I miss my older kids. The MOM in me wants them under my roof so I know they are okay and taken care of. But in the grand scheme of things, I'm incredibly fortunate to have employment, to be able to work from home, and to have everything I need.
((hugs)) everyone. I think a lot of people are at a critical breaking point.
