Reopening...kind of

For a Monday, today wasn't too bad. Except for the fact that I think I might be losing the battle with this cold. But I'm doing everything I can to fight it, and I'm 99% sure it's not covid, so it's one day at a time there.

Our governor lifted the state lockdown based on the projections that our ICUs will be more manageable within the next two weeks. Individual counties still have control over what happens, though, and ours is back in the purple tier we were in prior to December 3. Outdoor dining, hair salons back open, maximum of 25 people at an outdoor gathering from a maximum of 3 households. We'll see how long it lasts. Without major holidays on the horizon, I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but people are already being stupid about the lift. Of course, they see the timing as further proof that this was all a ploy to steal the election rather than the fact that LOCKDOWNS WORK if you make them strict enough. The stupidity really burns sometimes.

I did actually hit a store today, though, because I needed to go to Office Depot. Apparently, so how did half my town. I was inside for a full half hour for a simple transaction, but I couldn't put it off any longer. I sanitized like crazy and was good with my mask, so I'm not really afraid. Just annoyed at how long it took. Not that I took it out on the poor staff. There were enough people doing that already. Like it was the staff's fault everybody decided to show up today.

Still not done with my galleys, but I don't feel overwhelmed by them today. And my pain levels were much more tolerable. So all in all, I'm counting today as a good one in the long run.

It would still be nice to get some writing done for a change, though.
