Led off that I had my brother in law, sister in law, and 2 nephews from Denver at the house last week for 4 nights.  My wife and I were stressing out because we realized very quickly the number of things we can do were very limited. Thankfully our guests were not looking to do anything extravagant which was a huge relief.  We ended up basically just hanging out at our house playing games, taking the kids sledding, drinking, eating, and in general laughing a lot.  This got me thinking about coivd and 2020 and how having limited things available to us has at times been a blessing.  I can say that as a family we have hung out together more this year than any other year.  I challenged the PAX to think about the good things that they need to take out of 2020 and when things get “back to normal” (definition being pre-covid) presumably in 2021, what are they going to consciously work to keep in their lives instead of just reverting back to a pre-covid lifestyle.

Thanks to Tourniquet for filling in for Den Mother as site Q this morning as Den Mother was not feeling well. Thanks to Sheldon and Beatbox as always for the coffee.
