It’s a weird summer. The weather is hot, but the pools are closed. Growing up I preferred lakes, but would visit the Edina pool with my grandparents a couple times each summer. I thought since I work in Edina, this summer I would go to the pool occasionally to swim after work. But….we all know that hasn’t happened.
This isn’t the Edina pool, but was in a park that I visited a friend in, where we both brought ice cream to. All meet ups with friends take a little more negotiation to make sure everyone feels ok about the plan. During the week this week I was really craving some alone time with Jeff. We had the drive up north and back together solo, but I’m hoping we can go up to Duluth/North Shore this summer for a few nights. But seeing as I haven’t actually booked or scheduled anything, I’m not sure when it will happen. And, I’m ok with waiting until sometime in the fall if it means less people.
I am nervous about busy season when I don’t have the office to go to, and lots to do at home. I work well at home, but I really thought we’d be experimenting in the office in September, and I doubt that these days.
What did you think summer was going to be before Covid started? What has stayed the same?
