|Back when we owned this motorhome. Fun times.|
My husband asked me if we had any plans for the 4th. Is he serious? Gavin has closed us all down again. They\’ll have fireworks but we can\’t go anywhere to actually watch it. We have to stay in our cars – That won\’t work, trust me. From my house, we can only \”hear it.\” We\’ll be home doing what we do every 4th of July, and that is holding our shakey dog and comforting our cat.
We\’ll grill some burgers just for us – try and find a \”patriotic\” movie. I\’ll just pretend its a normal day. I\’m not a big holiday/special day kinda person. I have more fun on regular days that just happen. If I have to prepare for something, I find it stresses me out. Once a year, Thanksgiving/Christmas is enough for me.
Fridays we video chat with Pops. He wanted a chili dog so we\’ll go to Wienerschnitzel and get him a chili dog with onions meal and bring it back to the Veterans home by 4pm. He emphasized the onions on his hod dogs.
I\’m still struggling with a sense of sadness – about everything going on. I try and keep busy in my yard – dig dig dig, paint paint paint, plant plant plant.
That\’s my life these days
