Finding Sanity

October 6, 2021 at 10:31 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

This has been a crazy, exhausting, struggle this week. My place of employment is not a skeleton crew anymore, we are now calling ourselves the shoe string crew. With those out sick and the rest of us working to fill the shifts, I can say I am proud of my co-workers that we are bridging the gap and working through exhaustion and caring for our guys. 

I understand that no one wants to apply for a job because of the variant strain out their but businesses are closing their doors for lack of staff.  Patience is in limited supply right now. Sometimes you want to tell a customer it isn’t the checkers fault the lettuce costs a mere 20 cents more right now. truckers to deliver the food is in short supply right now. fast food places are in short staff mode as well. They really are trying to keep up with orders and maybe did put tomatoes on your order by mistake. do you really need to be rude to them for your order? 

I just feel a black cloud hanging over our Country right now and so many people has commented on the how hostile people are getting. Kids shooting kids at school, parents taking the kids out of school because of mask mandates and vaccinations debates, mental health declines, big box stores has made a mint on home deliveries and curbside pickups. People are afraid to go out anymore for fear of shootings, being the wrong ethnic race, walking after dark, I hope this is not the new normal. So many are just staying home instead of enjoying their community ( a fight breaks out for no reason it seems like). 

Anymore you need proof of being vaccinated to go into dine out, go to the movies, meet friends at a bar, no big gatherings, the concerts and fairs are resulting in spikes of the Covid19, so we are basically back to where we were last year. No family gathering again, sometimes it is hard to find the silver lining in all of this. I think the most important thing you can do for yourself is self- care. It is okay not to want to get together for a drink right now, not go for that scenic drive with friends, not go to that concert just yet. It is okay to take caution for what is at risk out there.
