Sometimes It is just necessary to 'check out'.
The discontinuity that is referred to as the 'new normal' is anything but.
Equating the threat of getting Covid from a Church service with an amusement park makes no sense to me.
My response - after going to a Church service this morning and praying was to decide to 'check out' via a nap.
It's seems 'irrationality' in various areas is becoming part of this 'new normal'.
I look forward to an end to this 'temporary now'.

    Churches are full of people over 60, so that is one issue.
    My father was born in 1900 (I'm 70) and he had Spanish Influenza which killed 50 to 100 million people world wide between 1918 and 1921. When the mother got sick and died, so did the rest of the family, so he said.
    He was sick for a year and had NO IV fluids, so his mother gave him sips of water 24/7 and kept him alive, and he got down to 75#. He just could not regain his weight or strength and it took a year, so she had him go to church to thank God and the kid in the pew in front of him was coming down with measles (the parents knew but didn't want to miss church) and so my father got the German Measles and was sick for another year. He never went to church again, except to walk me down the aisle at my wedding.

    Do stay safe.

    If only everybody would stop and think of consequences like you do... I am glad you are making the most of this day and making the right choices.

    The last two days I have hd a "cat nap" that lasts maybe 10 minutes. It helps and I feel more refreshed.

    It helps me to make a gratitude list when I'm feeling down. Even though thing may look somewhat bleak, there are always many things to give thanks for.

    Hard to know what the future is going to be like, but history has had MANY events which changed the 'normal'. I don't like it, either, but just taking it a day @ a time to see how things go and will always do what makes me comfortable.

    Sorry, but compared to previous generations and what they had to endure I think we can dig down for some more fortitude and do what has to be done to protect ourselves and others. Anne Frank and 7 others hid in a small space of 450 sq. ft. for over 2 years and we're 'inconvenienced'?? No comparison at all. I think we'd all be better off thinking about what we have as opposed to what we don't have as we go through this.
