Currently – August 2020

By | August 5, 2020

It’s time for another currently post.

I am choosing to try very hard not worry, but then I worry about not worrying. It’s a struggle. I think so many of see and hear things, whether it be on social media or on the news with all this COVID stuff.
“Schools not going to open when it supposed to.”
“There’s not going to be any college football.”
“So and so has COVID.”
It just goes on and on and that brings us stress and worry. A couple days ago I finally deleted my Facebook app on my phone, because I end up on the app without even thinking about it. Then 30 minutes or an hour later I’m down some rabbit hole. That sound familiar to any of you? Now I’ll still get on it Facebook by way of my internet browser, but that is a much more intentional thing and I find when I do it that way I’m much less likely to stay on it for a long time.

Hmmm…consuming…Not really sure what to write for this one.

I’m currently enjoying re-watching One Tree Hill on a free month of Hulu, because I saw this post recently. I watched this back in 2016. A new student I had hired at work and I decided to watch it in the evenings and come back and talk about it. She has since graduated, but we still text and when she comes in to town we meet up. I texted her that article about the possible reunion and she texted back that we should re-watch it. And so I am…at least until my free month of Hulu is over.

Well with Drew’s college graduation parties this weekend, I’ve been ordering stuff for that. Mostly food and I’ve waited so long now, I can’t order anything online as far as decorations. I’ll have to see what I can find at Party City.

This past week we had our first friend pass away from COVID. He was one of those people you would see at church or in town and you were just always glad to see him. He’d put a smile on your face. We used to be in the same Sunday School class with him and his wife. He was just always happy and thoughtful. Always had something interesting to share. A great story teller. So today I’m remembering Johnny.

RIP Johnny Lawrence

    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your friend.

    I had to totally give up Facebook – it is too hard to fall down those rabbit holes! I stick to Instagram these days.

    I used to love One Tree Hill! I even bought the Gavin DeGraw CD because I loved the theme song too. Lol.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your friend’s passing. It’s a rough time, and COVID just seems to be getting closer and closer to people.

    I do hope you have a lovely graduation party this weekend though, and that you can find some fun decorations at Party City!

    Oh, so sorry to hear about your friend! So many losses and cycling worries at this time – it’s hard, and I wish it weren’t, for all of us. Re-watching some comfort TV is a nice escape though. Hang in there!

    You have my sympathy on the loss of your friend. I am sure that is more than enough to make your COVID worries persistent. A weekend graduation party sounds nice – I hope your preparations go smoothly and Drew and all who are congratulating him enjoy the day!

    So sorry you lost your friend. Covid seems so surreal – until you know someone personally who dies. Then it is very real…and painful. Keep choosing faith over worry –

    I haven’t used Facebook in months because each time I do I can feel my anxiety going up and I do tend to fall down those rabbit holes. So sorry to hear you’ve lost a friend!
