Plans for Troubled Times

The coronavirus is very scary. It’s been pervading everything in U.S. lives for the last few weeks, and ramping up to pandemic level in recent days. The state I’m in–Maryland–has closed schools for the next two weeks. It’s a dangerous times, and I think people are looking for any signs of hope.

I would say, if you are stuck inside, and worried about COVID-19, be vigilant, but also try to enjoy whatever distractions you can when you can. Watch your favorite films, read your favorite books, catch on your Netflix binge list.

A friend at work told me, coronavirus is certainly “making life interesting,” and I told her, “I’d rather have a boring life.”  Since we can’t get back to boring, we must remember that as we try to get through this scary time,  we should try to find small joys.

When I start to worry about things I have no control over, I am going to watch the Princess Bride or maybe try one of the books I got excited about and bought and haven’t quite gotten to reading yet.

What’s your plan as we hunker down and try to get through this awful pandemic?
