PCGuyIV continues his series with the following questions. There have been so many great prompts lately, which is why I’m a couple days late on this one!
When was the last time you had well thought-out plans that got dashed to pieces by circumstances beyond your control? Were you able to “make lemonade” out of the “lemons” life handed you, or did you have to completely step back and regroup?
Last year around this time I was planning to go to Las Vegas with some good friends. I was pretty excited about it, since mostly my vacations are to visit family. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! But this would have been different and fun. One friend and I spent an afternoon shopping for some sparkly clothes, and I reserved my hotel room/bought a plane ticket.
Then everything fell apart. 🙁
Even before the trip was officially canceled, I decided not to go because the pandemic info had become scary and unpredictable. Back then, we began freaking out about everything, including groceries. I stayed home from work wondering wtf was going to happen. Were we all gonna die? What about my kids? I also had a plane ticket to visit NorCal in April.
Like everyone else, I adjusted to the new reality of masks and distancing. Never socializing. Working from home or alone. The Vegas hotel refunded my deposit, but idk what will happen to my plane tix. It’s possible I could use one this fall…
I can’t see any upside to the pandemic that has taken half a million American lives and many more around the world. It sucks. No lemonade for us! Just more lemons, lots and lots of lemons.
