Many people use New Year's Eve as a day for dreaming up what they want the next year to be like. And it's a good day to begin to make solid plans, when you haven't done so, already.
I got you started a couple of days early, with several of this past week's posts, and here's one more bit of planning you might want to do before 2021 arrives...
“We could pay for a package right now to cover all of the lost wages for individual workers, for losses to small companies, to medium-sized companies or city, state, county governments.” Dr. Michael Osterholm told Yahoo Finance Live on Nov. 11. “If we did that, then we could lockdown for four to six weeks and if we did that, we could drive the numbers down.”
In response to what Biden advisor, Michael Osterholm referred to as a COVID hell, he suggested a 4-6 week paid lockdown, which he says would slow down the spread of the virus.
Whether or not this idea ever becomes a national directive, the alarming rise in new COVID cases is likely to lead to a return to restrictions of some kind, and those who can quarantine themselves would certainly be free to do so.
If you decided to do so, what would be on your wish list to have plenty of during the super-long staycation?
My Top Ten Wish List
Here's what I would want...
-a relaxed reading allowance on Scribd, instead of them hiding some of the books I have chosen because I have cross the line in some mysterious way and read too fast or too much. You listening, Scribd?
-streaming Internet with subscriptions to Hulu, PBS, BBC and a classic movie channel.
-a cozy capsule to wear at home.
-a variety of tasty teas and Torano syrups to make them even tastier. Have you tried them yet?
-new Hallmark and UPtv movies to watch each weekend.
-an introductory week of non-stop Christmas movies on Hallmark.
-new board games my son and I could play.
-a budget that would allow for groceries to be delivered & maybe a cookbook w/ new recipes to try.
-several new style, decorating and Christian/personal growth magazine subscriptions to magazines like Cottage Journal, Magnolia, Darling, Marie Claire and Real Simple.
-candles and other hygge coziness all around my home
