Me being vulnerable, so don’t be dicks:
I have debated sharing this with anyone, because there is a lot of judgement out there on this topic. And rightly so, I suppose. We have decided to travel as a family. We are all taking covid tests prior, which is mandated. Once we reach our destination we will quarantine in a house on the beach. But it’s the airport and the plane that puts us in increased exposure. But everyone on the plane will have to have had the same covid test we all took.
Why? My wife starts her new business February which means it’s our last chance for a long while to take this type of a trip. Plus, like everyone we are going nuts in our own home. Unlike me, she works from an office. She will be tethered to it for some time.
I’m actually the one that lobbied against the trip. She thinks I’m being too conservative though and that if we mask up and use sanitizer we will be alright.
I dunno. I maintain that we have already had it back in January. My whole family got very sick and I was traveling to California a lot. I thought I had pneumonia.
I feel guilty though. But it’s gonna happen so I might as well enjoy the hell out of it. I’ve been very strict Re masking up and maintaining a safe social distance throughout the entire affair. I feel like I’m cheating or something.
Change of topic.
It’s the end of the year. Even without covid this would have been the most challenging year of my life. We moved to NC. I raised $2MM in the midst of a pandemic and the tightest capital market you can imagine, we launched two new products, we furloughed employees and brought most of them back, my kids were virtually schooled, after moving to NC (in to a rental home) we bought a home. We have been doing renovations to the home, like so many people I have been battling some blues.
It’s been one hell of a year. Lots of good in there but damn, it’s just too much all at once. I apologize for not being a better hubskier. I used to be so much more active here.
I made a podcast at the beginning of covid with steve and I think we should revisit and make Covid podcast part 2. What do you think Steve?
I had such a fun time at the Hubski 10 year celebration. It was one of my favorite nights all year. I genuinely felt like I was at a party with the most interesting people. You all are amazing. rezzeJ I was disappointed I didn’t get to talk with you more. BLOB_CASTLE, you were like a wave of positivity. Whatever you’re doing, stay at it. And lil, your one women show is hilarious. I feel like I watched it before. It’s very funny. Great audience inclusion. You’re a great writer and performer.
mk and ecib 2021 will be our year.
Cheers to everyone! Much love and gratitude to you all.
