March was a good, but busy month. Even in a pandemic it’s still March madness.
In October, I think we were as relaxed as we had been during the entire pandemic. In November, we started to tighten up more. Between the election and COVID cases rising, the first week of November was a bit stressful.
The day after our 4th of July trip, I had my first day working with clients since March 13th. It had been almost 4 months. I had been really nervous about my work opening back up and whether or not I would feel comfortable about it. I felt like my work was being really responsible (we are a city municipality which helps) and actually felt pretty good about it.
As the fourth of July approached, we weren’t feeling very enthusiastic. All the fireworks shows were cancelled and honestly, we weren’t feeling terribly patriotic and didn’t have much of a desire to be around people who were. We decided it would be best for us to get away from everyone and enjoy some of our nation’s natural beauty.
I was thinking the other day how most of my readers are not my local Colorado friends. I’ve mentioned what sort of rules or guidelines we have in Colorado during this pandemic, but I haven’t mentioned statistics about where Colorado stands.
Let me pick up the 2nd half of April. The day after I left off, it snowed. A lot.
I felt like life got “busy” again in April, yet we hardly leave the house.
Sunday, March 15th was the first day that ALL our plans were cancelled. We spent most of the day virtually reaching out to people and didn’t get around to doing our church meeting until 7pm. It went okay, but we decided it needed to happen a lot earlier in the day. The kids didn’t have school the next day (the district was giving the teachers a day to gather their wits) so I made a schedule for us to hopefully…
This March seems like one of those months that has a big divide. There was the first part where life was more or less normal and then there is the 2nd half (the half in which we’re currently living) where everything has been cancelled. It only seems fitting that I write about these two parts separately. (Also, I have a lot less going on now than usual, ha, ha.)
We had a bug with our websites that made it so we couldn’t log into the blog, which made updating very difficult. It’s all fixed now and I’m on a mission to get up to date, if only for my personal satisfaction. Let’s visit that long ago month of December.
