My deteriorating attitude

I know, I know…life is as it ever was in “freedom” areas. But I have a higher risk elderly wife and, well, I don’t want this crap either.

And I here of our ICU and ventilators filling up…yes, some vaccinated and boosted but many..the majority..vast majority..unvaccinated.

And there is the temptation to express schadenfreude.
But then I read about the anguish of someone who tried to persuade a dear friend, relative, parent, sibling or offspring to get vaccinated..were unsuccessful ..and then…bam…said loved one is fighting for their life in the hospital.

It is just heartbreaking to see.

And yeah, I am taking a hiatus from yoga classes. The Riverplex has a mask mandate that is enforced at the door but nowhere else. So I know an hour of yoga in my KN-95 is probably safe (class is vaccinated/boosted) but I just get disgusted with how so few follow the mandate; I just don’t want to see them. So my break is more for my mind than anything else.

So…another semester starts. I am sure that there will be some major disruptions this time around; here we are coming off of a delta wave and omicron is just starting…could be a rough 2-4 more weeks. I expect colleagues to have to isolate and students to miss class.

I wouldn’t say that I am running on empty; it is that I won’t enjoy this as much as I would normally enjoy this semester; the things I am teaching ARE interesting and fun. Oh well, just typing that made me smile.

Workout notes: half hearted stretching (felt it on the walk to the office); 22 fake miles on the bike in 1:03; resistance break down was 3-11-8. Time to work on getting more of the harder resistance.
