During this crazy time of social-distancing and self-quarantining here are 10 things I’m really missing and 5 things I’m very grateful for. -Jackson
I miss going out to eat in general, but I really miss brunch. My family brunches hard every Sunday and I could drink that Bloody Mary right now right off your computer screen.
I love having my kids home a lot more and getting time with them but they need the structure of school. And they really miss their friends. And that makes me sad for them.
I love the nightly news so I can keep up on everything. I just can't watch it anymore right now.
I miss yelling "let's go Sox" and "let's go Bruins!"
I miss having friends over. I miss going to see family. I miss shaking hands. I miss hugs.
I've still been coming to work every day. But most of my co-workers are working from home. It's quiet, lonely, and kind of eerie.
Target is comfort-shopping for me - even if I don't buy anything - though I usually do. I miss that.
It's exhausting being on edge all of the time.
Although the musicians have done a great job streaming fun shows from home, there's nothing like being at a killer live show.
I would say "spending more time with the family" but it's more than that for me. I am so proud of how well my kids are handling this time. There are very few arguments going on in my house and I'm proud of that. I'm also incredibly proud of my wife who continues to work as a nurse at Mass General during this scary time. I love my family.
Thank God for the internet during this time. Meeting with friends and loved ones on Zoom helps us feel connected from afar. Technology has helped make this time more bearable in so many ways.
Nurses, doctors, truck drivers, police, fire, EMTs, farmers, grocery workers, and so many more to mention: THANK YOU!
I've watched a lot of that and played a lot of that.
During this unprecedented scary time it's so amazing to see the good in people. Neighbors helping neighbors out, strangers helping strangers out. There are so many good stories during this bad time. And we're going to get through this TOGETHER.
