Mind if I vent?

 I'm feeling sad this morning because, like so many of us, Covid has robbed me of special plans this weekend.  Plans we have been looking forward to for a long time. I know there are far more troubles in the world right now, but these days special moments with friends are really all we have to look forward to. The cozy comfort of laughter and contentment with good friends is what I've been waiting for. 

I am trying to come up with a backup plan for the weekend so I won't be feeling sorry for myself.  A nice walk to admire the foliage perhaps?  A funny movie to lift our spirits?  Maybe a take out dinner on Sunday to celebrate our 22nd anniversary? (side note: wow! has it been that long??). We'll see.  You know I always try to stay upbeat around here, but what I'm feeling right now is real and I know most of you have probably felt this disappointment over the last few months.  It really stinks.  I wonder when life will get back to normal.  

I posted this photo on Instagram this morning because it's literally my face this week : ) 

(The pandemic is turning me into Dorothy, when I used to be Rose! If you watch the Golden Girls, you'll know what I'm talking about...)

I'm going to pour myself another cup of coffee and count my blessings. I just had to vent, so thanks for listening.  You guys are the best  


  1. Yep, been there before. A few times. Pouting and feeling sorry for ourselves just feels good and necessary sometimes, though we always hold the bigger picture in mind....we are still human. And connection with others definitely helps us get through this mess of a world we live in right now. So I’m sorry you have to cancel your plans-that just sucks (for lack of a better term!) At least the next time you see them it will feel all the more special and sweeter:) Definitely treat yourself somehow this week!

  2. I'm so sorry you can't follow through with your plans. I really feel your pain. I'm trying to get myself busy because in two weeks time we'd have been flying to the UK to watch Mary graduate from the University of Chester. After all the years of work and sacrifice, it was the icing on the cake to watch her get her diploma. So bummed out we can't go. :( So I truly empathize with you. All I can say is when we can finally move about and do what we want, it'll be so amazing! And make us appreciate things all the more. Til then, all we can do is offer a shoulder to one another, and try to make the world a nicer place! Hugs! xoxo

  3. It sure is difficult - and it feels like it will never end! But I've always been Sophia, so I have nowhere else to go ;)
