Wow, long time without a post. Suffice it to say, my energies have been spent elsewhere, including a new Daughter and the ever growing 4 year old Son. Anyways, this is not about catching up. This is about reaching middle age and doing really well because of a little thing called Covid-19 that is destroying other people's lives. This pandemic is one of the craziest things I or anyone else has had to live through. But I've really benefited from it:
-I'm only working 45 hours a week, they're hard but 15 less than before.
-I'm making less money but EDD is covering the difference.
-I got a 'stimulus' check from the US government.
-Every week, EDD gives me extra money.
-I'm a misanthrope, so staying home really isn't a big deal to me
-My Wife is home everyday with the kids and when I come home, they are there. No driving to Long Beach to pick them up or waiting for everyone to come home
-It became socially acceptable to day drink...
The only losses for me are hockey and not being able to see Family and Friends, which we probably wouldn't be able to see anyways. Oh, and the Wife and I got really sick for the first 2 weeks of this thing, so that was bad. But otherwise, we're doing really good. Financially, life has never been this easy. And yes, I know it all runs out in a few months but right now, there's no stress from money. But it feels wrong to feel good about that, when other people are suffering. So for some reason, I felt the need to rant about this on my Birthday. Forty-five feels so old but things feel so good, but in a way they shouldn't.
Done with this, I hope everyone is healthy and safe.
