Peaceful usually and this year. Both holidays are low-key and this year there were/will be no face to face interactions. Some video chats, some plays to watch and concerts to hear. And this year I am retired.
@spitfire6006006 WOW! You actually have the possibility to be called into a room full of people (socially distancing of course) for hours on end, potentially sequestered, and you’re frowning? That’s possibly more human contact than i’ve had ALL year! Lol
@spitfire6006006 Strange as it sounds I’d ALWAYS wanted to be on a jury. When my number came up and I finally got called to serve I had to decline. The timing was terrible as I was recovering from a accident in a spika body cast with 2 broken legs and a shattered hip. I’m still waiting for another chance. Bucket list needs to be checked! ✔
@Lynnerizer@spitfire6006006 I’ve always wanted Jury duty too! I’ve gotten the “request” at least 2 dozen times from county, state and federal (all 3!) but every single time, when I make the call, they say they don’t need me. I should have stuck with my guns and become the lawyer I wanted to be.
@Lynnerizer@spitfire6006006 Well move here. I have been called in 3 times. Each time we have to come to the court, sit around and then if they don’t need us that day they release us late morning. Rinse and repeat. All three times I was never picked to serve.
the first one, except instead of gearing up for NYE (normally we’d be attending some kind of event) i’m just gearing up for the final season of the chilling adventures of sabrina. and i’m totally fine with that.
I’ve been on covid quarantine since the beginning of December and it SUCKS! I didn’t get sick. I miss my peeps at work! I’ve put on 15 pounds. My spouse always takes the last 2 weeks of the year off, too and when I’m home he only wants to sit around and do nothing but watch TV and nag me into sitting with him. So thankfully, quarantine ended Saturday and I get to go back to work! Yay! Maybe even overtime on the weekend as an operator so I can get some exercise finally, too! Yay!!!
Hoping the trend from last week continues and the combination of the holidays and our generous PTO policy means half the company is out of the office. We’re supposed to delay any changes until after the new year, so I’m essentially being paid to be here in case something breaks.
Very much missing planning for/attending NYE parties. They’re usually some of the better ones for adults. I bought a house this year and definitely would have been throwing my first one in several years.
