Happy New Year !
Hello 2021 !
These observations, collected throughout the year … were intended for Wednesday of this week, but with the new Stimulus Bill being approved, and action items associated with it, that post took precedent and these were moved to today…. making for a heavier post than intended.
We wanted to get them to you before we get too far from last year.
Items we’ve learned last year…
Our hair, when uncut, gets very fluffy
Negative information is much easier to find than positive
Extended mask wearing can cause the ears to hurt
On-line school sounds fun and cool, but can be REALLY hard for many
Confinement causes the days of the week to blur
We are people that like to interact with other people
Still don’t understand the rush to Toilet paper
While technology is great, it doesn’t replace human personal service and touch
My hearing is not near as good and I thought
Casual is more casual now (Happily!)
Capital Markets can move faster than previously thought
I like seeing people’s smile’s
A big hug from a friend is irreplaceable
Fear and greed can change fast
I like traveling, especially by plane
A small house can feel really small when everyone is confined to it
Pets are one of the biggest beneficiary of lockdowns
It’s fun to not shave every day
The office doesn’t have to be that big
Outdoor chairs are invaluable
Slowing down and embracing and enjoying the moment is very rewarding
Getting away on vacation or the like helps relieve stress
Masks are like socks – the either disappear or congregate all together- but not in your car, where you really need them
Sweats can be dressy too
Big flatscreen TVs can be invaluable
I read lips a lot more than I thought
Baseball hats hide disorder
Even after months of mandatory mask wearing, you will still forget and have to walk back to the car
You really can do a lot of different exercises with dumb bells and a soft floor
A good Laptop is invaluable
Thank goodness for streaming services
Going out to eat at a Restaurant is more fun than we thought
There you have it…. thoughts collected in 2020 – So long year!
Have a Great “Thoughts from the Year” Day and Happy New Year!
