    They will be posted in the next day or two. The due date will be the 19th, Authors will put their own entries into the system and post date them, and there will be a thread to post links in. 

    I am trying to have the post ready for tomorrow.

    Fantastic. Thanks, Renee!

    Yes, Wayne that is what we all have is hope glad you had a good evening out.

    Thanks, rick. We all can use a bit of hope, and there's reason to feel it. Yes, we've a way to go, but we're going to make it.

    I hope this change spreads to our surprisingly messed up and seemingly backward country. To say it's frustrating watching GB and the USA getting things done and a smaller country like ours can't seem to get it at all right, is an understatement. 

    We go out for walks again now, but we keep away from others ... cases of covid back up in the 2,000s per day again.  Most won't even dare to look at you and smile. Fearful of what? I don't really know. 

    They tell us variants are the cause and people seeing others outside their households is a huge part also. 

    I want to hope, but it feels awfully futile. 

    I know it's easy to feel as if it won't end. I know the need to protect our hearts by tempering expectations, particularly when there's so much out there we can't control. Here too, we're depending on people to do the right things to stay in our current "tier". Just a few more average cases a day and we'll slide back down, and we will lose a lot of our loosened guidelines (indoor dining included).

    It's genuinely unfair to be some of the ones to follow the guidance, to adhere to the physical distancing rules, and to have others essentially ruin it by haring off and doing their own, seemingly self-destructive things. You can only ask "what are people thinking?" so many times before you arrive at the conclusion: they are not. They are not thinking.

    We're all lucky. We have a different administration in office now, and soon the US will have so much supply that we will have capacity to share with our northern neighbor. If it comes down to it, that's what will happen. Persons in our govt have already said as much.

    Estimates here put more supply than demand for vaccine in early June. So, if for whatever reason CA can't get shots in most Canadian arms by then, they'll come from the south. It's going to happen.

    I know you guys are doing what you need to do, and I'm glad. Stay healthy. We're getting there.

    You and me.  We talk often about our lives, our men and the world. When you said you were going out for dinner, inside i just screamed YES!  It was a big thing. All you've been through have been sort of firsts ... you're fully vaccinated and you got to go out for dinner.  i am happy that you guys could do that. 

    i wanted it to be good, because while we are so far from being able to, you did it.  And yeah, it gives me hope that one day we'll be able to as well.  xo

    Thank you, tim. It was a little bit of a snap decision to go, but I'm so glad we did. I can't wait for you and Michael to go too. I know the time is coming, it is. When it happens we can't really predict, but I know it will.

    It was really good. Thanks for wanting that for us. When it's your turn, I'll get to be excited for you too. 🙂 xo

    First Date. Yep, that's exactly what this was, a First Date. No, not in the traditional sense of the term, but nothing about our world has been "traditional" for a very long time. You and Kevin got to experience a small bit of normalcy and you so deserve that.  Thanks for sharing. It made me smile and gave me a glimmer of hope that we're on the path that will lead us out of this nightmare.  

    Thanks, spyke. In ways, that's how it felt. We're doing something familiar in a very unfamiliar way, so by its nature, it was a "first". It was so nice. Parts were odd, but ... the eating, chatting, and watching others do the same, that was all good.

    I really do feel we're on the way.

    Fantastic that you were able to go out. Hugs to you and Kevin x:hug:

    Thanks, Chris. I know it's not the same everywhere, and it's tenuous here too. Things could change, if we don't obey the guidance and we spike again. But daily, the number of vaccinated folks climbs. I think we're going to outpace the variants (the vaccine is shown to work against those too). Cautious hopefulness. That's what I'm feeling.

    i'm so very glad you took action, there's no reason to be miserable when "whatever" can be fixed, alleviated, made easier to deal with

      Hide contents

    and, purely rhetorical mind you, what is it about men that they don't/won't see a doctor without being chivvied into it?

    enjoy your renewed sense of self
    i'm sure Kevin and Sam are :*)

    Thanks, molly. Me too!

    And I think many people, not just men, don't want to find out there's actually nothing measurably wrong. In this case, if I'd have gone and found out "No, you've moved from a demisexual gay man to asexual." I'd have gone from married to divorced. I never would have forced Kevin to stay with me, or even try. That's where my head was during that time. So proving that there was no reason was the worst thing I could imagine, and it's why I put it off.

    Maybe it wasn't a reasonable way to think, but ... yeah, that's where my brain was.
