Still eating dust, and anybody else out there who’s had enough?

Nothing to do with my post, but a little island of calm in a mad world.

Yip.

Although things have moved along a bit with the alterations on the guesthouse, we are still eating dust, listening to noise and living in chaos.

I can see things changing drastically within about two working days (I really, really hope it does), but for now everything still feels crazy and uncomfortable.

I am upset about how we are all being manipulated by our governments. I am not a puppet on strings, and I cannot remember giving anyone the right to decide for me how I should live my life. Initially I thought it was a good idea to be cautious about this virus that seemed to have taken the world by storm, but now things are just plain ridiculous. At which point do you decide to return life to normal? Because at this rate it is never going to happen. How can you continuously close everything down every time a few more people get the virus? There are reports from all over about how unreliable the tests are for a start. The tests are unreliable, the vaccines are not safe, nobody seems to know for how long they will protect you, or if it is safe for pregnant women, older people, or anyone for that matter. Yet still nothing can return to normal. Businesses must continue to close down. People must continue to lose their jobs.

And yet, we accept all this without a word of protest, as if it is the way it should be…

Do you know the parable about the frogs? If you put them in cold water, make a fire under the pot, they will not even realize that they are in water that is constantly getting hotter and hotter, until they are cooked – and then it is too late.

Oi…a scary, scary thing to allow others to make all these decisions for us, don’t you think?

Emotionally yours.

Aaaaaaarrrrgh….

Today sucks big time.

I know, I know…yesterday I was all ‘tonight’s gonna be a good night’, and now suddenly I’m all ‘woe is me’!

I’m sorry, but I’ve got stuff to get out of my system today. Yesterday one of my best friends told me they are leaving the country at the end of April. A few hours ago I get a call from another best friend, telling me she is at the airport, on her way to the UK, permanently. (She is in the air as we speak.) I knew they were planning the move, but this caught me off guard – they had to move up their plans because of – you guessed it – Covid! I am really starting to HATE that word and the whole global situation caused by it.

My SO* is on the other side of the country, which is maybe a good thing for him, because who would want to be with me today?? Not me, that’s for sure!

On top of that, I am missing my children. Not just missing them – I am MISSING them, and I am upset because they are so far away and I cannot see them or hug them or have coffee with them. I cannot hug my granddaughter or read to her. I’m pissed off, to put it simply.

I know, I can hear you – ‘oh boohoohoo, get over it!’ ‘Do you think you’re the only one in that situation?’ ‘And whining is going to change what?’ Etc.

I. KNOW. I’m not stupid (not totally, anyway). But this situation is real to me, and it bugs me.

Okay, I’m done. I don’t feel better yet, but I’m done.

Have a good weekend y’all!!!
