Anticipated vaccination date: 1.4 years / June 2022
So far, 2021 has sucked.
1.) My uncle died on 1/1.
2.) We are experiencing record Covid deaths, with an excruciatingly slow pace of vaccination.
3.) Saoirse cut her finger due to my negligence. Blood gushed everywhere, and we almost went to the ER. (Arranged a babysitter, etc., before we finally got the bleeding stopped and our pediatrician recommended staying home.)
4.) Attempted insurrection at the White House.
I mean, it’s only 1/9.
It will be interesting to see if the impeachment succeeds. There is no doubt it’s justified this time. (I felt the last impeachment was political theater, not justified, and in general, bad form.) I will honestly be encouraged and hopeful for our future if it succeeds. We’ll see. I can’t imagine that he would run again, but stranger things have happened. The best thing about impeachment would be preventing a future run and diminishing or eliminating his role in the party going forward.
We attempted to go play in the snow at the pass today, drove 60 miles (one way) and sat in crazy traffic jams and couldn’t find a place to park. Anywhere. There are just way too many people here and with literally everything closed, people are dying to get outside. So “outside” is turning into a city. And getting off the beaten path is challenging when you have three kids, the youngest of whom is one.
