Cheers to 2021

2020 has proven to go down in history as the worst year ever!

Between covid 19, elections,  riots, and even murder Hornets… that’s enough to drive you to the nut house.

Needless to say, it’s been a rough year, but I am also very thankful for 2020.

2020 has shown me how precious life is. So many people have lost loved ones this year, and I was blessed to still have my family.

My mom was in and out of the hospital more times this year then any other year, but she always recovered and she is still here with me.

So many people lost jobs and businesses and are truly struggling. 2020 taught me to be happy with what I have.

We may not have tons of money but we survived 2020 and are not in debt.

2020 did bring out a lot of hate in people and made people that were once friends, turn to enemies. But also showed us who our true friends are. It’s amazing how bad times will show you who is truly there for you.

This year also brought many changes, one of the biggest being remote learning. It was a difficult time in our house for sure, but it also made my son appreciate school more. He no longer gives me a hard time about going to school, because he now knows what being at home all the time feels like.

Covid definitely made my busy schedule go to non existent for a while and made me feel like I was losing my mind. Now, I appreciate being able to do more and find myself not complaining about busy days.

Lastly, I am thankful for all the great times I spent with my family this year. I think being stuck at home together made us grow closer. And even through all the changes this year, we were still able to make great memories.

Through all the madness, my family and I enjoyed camping together, enjoyed every holiday, celebrated my daughter turning 21 and my son turning 14, and celebrated 20 years with my husband. We enjoyed drive through events and made the best of every obstacle 2020 threw at us!

I am definitely not sad about 2020 coming to an end and I am looking forward to what 2021 brings us, but I am thankful for what 2020 brought me as well.

Happy New Years, I hope 2021 brings so much happiness to you all!!!

2020 You Are Not My Friend

2020 seriously has me throwing the bird, no slash that, a double bird, while sticking my tongue out and stomping off!

Covid came creeping in like that creepy neighbor always knocking on your door and looking into your windows to see if you are home. Now, we are all hiding out in our homes, in fear that the Corona will soon get us.

I am literally so tired of being in my home. Cleaning, cooking, remote learning with a 14 year… A stinky 14 year old boy mind you. I get the pleasure of smelling toots and bad breathe all morning while helping him get his day started.

Why did I choose remote learning you may ask…well I was worried about him adjusting to the changes the school has made for the safety of the kids. Such as masks all day, 90 minute classes, and no socialization.

Now, you may ask, why not put your mask on and get back into the World. Well first off, I am not against masks, but it is Texas. We are in the hotter than Satan’s toenails part of summer and I am a sweater. By the time I take off that mask my nose is sweating down into my mouth 😣. Not too mention I am a bit dramatic and I feel like I am suffocating in the mask after a quick grocery store run.

Nothing is fun anymore. I use to love going shopping and browsing every item in the store, now its like supermarket sweep. I get what I need and get out.

When you have a special needs child, that already has breathing problems, you just don’t know how safe it is to take them out. Even with a mask, there is uncertainty!

I just want my life back! I miss socialization! I miss parties!!

I am a planner and I like to have everything planned out and this Covid is wrecking my world. Can we have Halloween? Will there be any Fall activities? What about Christmas and Thanksgiving? There is too much uncertainty, it is driving me crazy!

Not to mention all the hate and violence 2020 has brought into the World. The hate is the worst, people are fighting just to fight, in a time when we should all be coming together as a country.

Then they tell us there are murder hornets and suspicious Chinese seeds being sent to people. That is enough 2020!

2020 has me going on strike in my own home. I stare at trash and think “someone will eventually pick that up“. No such luck, when my strike ends a day later that wrapper is still there waiting.

2020 has brought health problems to my family members and Covid made it where I could not even be with them. Having to sit in the car while calling a nurse over and over again for an update on my parent, is not fun!

I think about last year at this time, we were getting ready to take a trip to Disney World. Now, I get excited just to go to a drive through Birthday Party!

If you have a suggestions on how I can keep my sanity in this difficult time, leave me a comment! Or let me know what you are doing to keep your sanity!

Please 2020 hurry up and go away!!

Here is to 2021, may the World get back to normal!
