IMG_20210120_122139_347And we made it past Inauguration Day and all went off without a hitch - thankfully.  I enjoyed watching the proceedings on TV, the performances, speeches, etc. I am truly excited for and about Kamala Harris. I really enjoy her and from a historical standpoint it's of course a great and important milestone. And of course I'm happy about Joe BIden as well. Was he my first choice and clear front runner candidate? No, not really. But do I think he is 10000x better than another 4 years of what we previously had? Yes, yes of course. Well, anyway, I am glad the day has come and gone and while of course not everything all of a sudden is all wonderful, rainbows and roses overnight, I just feel more confident and optimistic. So let's hope we can figure out ways to turn things around. The whole Covid mess, climate change, the economy, there's a never ending list of tasks of course. 

Not much else going on really. Can't really leave Connecticut at the moment as most other states around us require you to quarantine and/or CT would require us to quarantine when we get back. Next month is our 20 year wedding anniversary (Feb 10) and originally we had talked about doing some epic trip, something like Fiji or Tahiti. But yeah, that's of course not happening. Yes, there are ways to travel even these days but I am really just not feeling confident doing that. I don't want to be on a plane for such a long time, having to wear a mask, no drink service, etc. All sorts of restrictions at the destination, things are shut down/closed, having to be extra careful non stop. I'd do it if it can't be avoided of course but voluntarily, no not really. Austria has a ton of entry regulations as well so god knows when I will actually be able to get back to Austria. It's been over a year now since I was last there. Ugh. 

The weekend was pretty quiet. Saturday we had lunch at Rizzuto's in Westport. Sunday we went to Notch 8 and had yummy pizza and hung out there for the afternoon. And eventually caught up on our recorded TV shows at home and also started "Wandavision" on Disney+.
