Anyone else land in the queue to book summer camping this week?
It is our first year booking camping in Manitoba. Last year, we spent most of our camping time in the northern states, however with border restrictions and the required 14 day isolation upon returning, didn't really seem to fit with what we had in store for summer. So, staying in the province this summer will be our plan.
Sitting in the virtual line-up to book campsites, reminded me of how I've been feeling about the pandemic lately. The blue dot blinks at where my place is in line, as I wait for my turn and I wonder when will it be time to move up in the line. When will the pandemic screen refresh and the end will be closer in sight?
It's going on 8 weeks of social distancing. Our province has moved into phase one of re-opening, it will be a very slow progression, maintaining the priority of social distance. As eager as I am for life to be 'normal,' every shift I work reminds me that this is far from over, but every little part restored brings back a piece of normalcy, and lights up our home.
What part of 'normal' life are you looking forward to?
Here are some articles I found this week, enjoy!
