NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED WEEKLY ON WEDNESDAY - WEBSITE UPDATED THURSDAY

Life, as I see it: Things are looking up

Home Opinions Life, as I see it: Things are looking up
I say things are looking up because on Tuesday I have my first hair appointment in two months. Thankfully I haven’t been out and about much.

The following week I’ll have new nails and a facial. Maybe they can put the old girl back together again.

Although things are opening up in North Dakota again, I still am in no hurry to socialize with the masses. North Dakota safe is what they call it.

A joke that holds some truth is that North Dakota has been social distancing since the 1800s.

With our vast prairies and acres of farm and ranch lands, it’s not too hard to do.

This past week was May Day. Granddaughter Lea made the rounds leaving May Baskets on the porches of friends and family. It touched a lot of hearts, including mine and Papa Tom’s. I hadn’t received a May Basket since leaving North Dakota so many years ago. I love being back.

This whole ‘not seeing family thing’ is starting to get to me. I’d like nothing more than to host a big family breakfast for all of them. The weather is great. Our new outdoor griddle has been delivered. All is ready to start flipping flapjacks and frying eggs for the Craigo Clan. Now all we need is the family.

I’m not sure but I may have hit my tolerance wall with all of this isolation.

The good news is that small businesses, including my kids’ CrossFit gym The Refinery can reopen now. A lot of folks have put a lot of hard work into these businesses. I say support our privately owned businesses, especially now.

I see a lot of social media posts about onset depression. I’ve dealt with that on some level over the years. Among the lessons I’ve learned to hold it off is to keep busy. There are plenty of things to do in our homes. Let’s do them. We know we have the time.

Life is good today.
