One grandma in the family used to say “I try to do one thing every day” meaning no less but certainly no more. If she was going to Zumba at noon, no chance she could come to dinner at 7. We used to mock her, but now she is my idol. I just bought a very small calendar so I can only fit in the one thing.
From busy enough at a slow pace, to steering the rudder for “busy” in a generally successful direction considering these new waters.
As a somewhat introvert, I was a pretty happy shelterer. I received great social nourishment from a few small “pods” and family. Yet it was so fun to unexpectedly be invited to 2 “parties” in one weekend and go to dinner and a big-screen movie twice last month. These outings were all the more special for not being commonplace. I hope to sustain that wonder of it.
I missed people but enjoyed the solitude and so much meeting and learning by zoom was great. Not ready to be out yet.
