Wow, March was quite a month, wasn’t it? The COVID-19 tide has been rolling in for a while now, but the waves started getting really high last month and now everyone’s lives have changed dramatically. My day-to-day activities aren’t much different as I’m used to working from home, but I’m an extrovert who likes to see friends, eat out, and make frequent trips to various speciality grocery stores and all of those activities are severely curtailed, not to mention I’m distracted by the dozens of daily news alerts and the plummeting economy. In the face of all of the turmoil, I’m grateful for so many things including the beleaguered grocery store personnel who are working hard to make sure we have the things we need so we can shelter in place and all the first responders and hospital workers who are working round the clock to keep us and our loved ones safe.
One of my pals, Nell Stark started a daily pandemic video log on Facebook where she relays one thing she’s grateful for alongside one thing she’s disappointed about and it’s a great way to see the balance in the world. I’m stealing her idea for this blog post and inviting us all to do the same. To make this a little more fun, I’ll draw three names from those who comment and I’ll give away Audible codes to the winners – redeemable for a free copy of my latest novel, Out of Practice, which is fun and flirty and super low angst 🙂
So, I’ll start:
I’m grateful that I have a job that allows me to work at home and that so far hasn’t been affected by the downturn in the economy.
I’m disappointed at not being able to be in the physical presence of friends and family.
Now, it’s your turn…I’ll draw a winner on Saturday.
Take care and stay safe, Carsen
