So Much Summer Left
School announcements, sports announcements, and literally tornadoes — all packed into about 96 hours. We are reeling, and the 2020 hits just keep on coming. So what’s next? No one knows.
But here’s what I know for sure: there’s a lot of summer left. I’ve decided to not spend it worrying about things I can’t change. This is not to say I’m not sad about so much that we’ve lost - jobs, trips, opportunities for our kids and families that we may never get to replicate. But I can’t change it and to dwell on it seems like the waste of perfectly good time that could be spent enjoying the NYT gazpacho recipe (trust me: https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1017577-best-gazpacho), a good book, a long walk in a beautiful place, or a bag of microwaved popcorn and a snuggle on the couch with a kid that might not be into snuggling with me this time next year.
There’s so much summer left. Let’s do our best to enjoy it.
