New Year New World

Well, maybe not an entirely new world, but it just seams this pandemic won’t loosen it’s grip. About four weeks ago Dana tested positive after being exposed at work. We had to go into lockdown mode. Dana had a cold for a few days and that was about it. Feiya and myself didn’t show symptoms. I was able to continue to work. I only did unoccupied houses during that time. Fortunately, it was the slowest time of the year.

This virus is no joke. Dana’s small office consists of herself and 4 other co-workers working in close quarters. Dana started showing symptoms a day after her coworker announced he had tested positive. We tested negative 10 days later after showing no symptoms for 3 or so consecutive days. Dana was one of the first of her coworkers back to work and one week later she had found out the mother of one of her coworkers had died from the virus. Her mother was retired and lived her. It came from the same outbreak Dana and the rest of us were exposed to. This is why we have to be very respectful of this virus.

Sorry for being so glum. That’s our Covid-19 story. I think everyone will be touched by it in some shape or form before this is all over. I know things will never fully return to normal. I just hope that the changes that are made are for the better. Sure, that’s subjective depending on who talk to. We’ll see.

2021 is here and it’s going to be an interesting year. Last year I kind of tuned out for the past 3-4 months. I think I became a little overloaded and needed to take a break. I immersed myself into the world of auto racing. I subscribed to F1TV and watched every race from 2016 through 2020. I’m now starting on 2008, the first year the F1 channel archived every race for the season. They have archived races back to 1980! I’ve become a student of Formula 1. That’s what I love most about it, I’m always learning something new.

I’ll still be a fan of Formula 1 throughout 2021, but I need to get back to work. Meaning, I need to get back to my side hustle schemes. Seems I’ve started few of them and when I hit a wall I moved onto something else. So, I’m going ahead with one of the projects. Let’s see how far I get this time.

We’re all doing well. We had a great holiday season. Very laid back. We did some cooking and we also did some ordering out. Just a pleasant time with the three of us.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season as well. Here’s to a hopeful 2021!
