I could really use some. This has been a tough week on quite a few fronts. For starters, one would think that having your air conditioner go out in November wouldn’t be too annoying, right? One would be wrong. It was 89 in my house for two days in a row. Like everything else right now, the process is slowed down—due to the pandemic—and the installation of the new one might take a while. Thankfully, Hurricane Eta is back out to sea and has taken all of her tropical, muggy nonsense with her, and it’s a much more tolerable 82 in here.
Mine? Monday’s news from Pfizer. I know that news by press release isn’t always something to get excited about and that it’s not quite yet statistically significant, but a vaccine that is 90% effective is quite hopeful. If we have one solid vaccine candidate in the pipeline, there are likely more. For every vaccine we have going into production, that’s less pressure on one supplier and a better chance that we will have a good fit for every person. I will take that news and hang onto it.
Normal life is still quite a ways away, but if stick to the guidelines and do our best to flatten that curve as much as possible, more of us will see its return.
On a smaller, more personal note, my boss sent flowers for my eight-year “work-a-versary” at FeedBlitz. They’ve brightened up our dining room and made my two-year-old very happy. I should probably take note and buy fresh flowers more often.
Remember as we head into the coming weeks that it’s ok to turn off the news. It’s ok to put on your blinders when you need to and to focus on the little things. So, in light of that, I’m inviting you to share your Friday hoorays. What good things have happened in your corner of the world?
What have you accomplished?
What have you seen?
What is keeping you going?
