In the regular phone calls with my mother during this pandemic I remind her that the cliche “no news is good news” has never been more true.
With that in mind, this update is largely in the same vein. We’ve been staying at Tanya’s mother’s house since Dec. 13 and have literally not left the house for anything other than groceries and a run to the liquor store since, Michigan having more effectively locked down than many other states.
After spending 10 days in hotels all over Las Vegas, this has been a nice change for me. Fortunately, we get along well with my in-laws, though I’m sure they’re probably ready to get their home back and return to whatever counts for normalcy in these times.
I’ve had a chance to shovel snow for the first time in 12 years and I’m happy to report I still hate it. I’ve probably tempted fate too many times since living in Las Vegas by saying I’ll never shovel snow again, but the gods made me pay for that hubris. (Fortunately it was only a couple of inches and I was only pitching in with my father-in-law.)
For the next week, it’s more of the same before we return to Las Vegas for three days to raid the storage unit for the stuff we’re taking to Mexico and then on January 6, the same day Donald Trump is going to attempt a coup with the help of his quislings in Congress we’ll be flying to Mexico. Not sure it’s irony, but it’s something and it’s all gonna happen without me paying any attention to it because I’m ready to get out of here.
Hope you and your family are well, staying healthy and looking forward to what can hopefully only be a much better 2021.
