Storming the castle
We missed doing this for Mother’s Day last month.
And with Robert now gainfully employed, he missed the trip yesterday.
But, Pocket one of the folks from the vaccination PoDs Sarah has been working since the vaccine became available, joined us this time.
The weather was pretty perfect. Plenty warm but with a brief bit of rain to keep it from getting too summer-time hot.
And most interesting: Pocket, (who’s real name is also Sarah with an H but adopted Pocket for… reasons) brought her foldable kayak.
She has an Oru Kayak.
It’s pretty cool: fits in the back of car, folds together in a couple minutes (gathering a crowd of interested onlookers), and works well.
Pocket was first across the river each way. I credited her longer boat with more of keel to track straighter and go faster. Sarah credited Pocket’s upper body strength as she is an avid rock climber.
It was fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
And if you’re interested, Fort Washington is back to firing off their cannon on the first Sunday of the month. Alas, yesterday was not the first in month so we missed it.

And so, a whole new era begins…
From Robert, “Ok I get off at 7”
He got an application at the local laser tag place last weekend.
Dropped off the application yesterday.
Went in this afternoon for his interview.
Started his first shift after the interview.
Our Robert is now gainfully employed!!!

Done with this
That’s 450 days of data. The 7 day moving average has been in the single digits for weeks now. I’m no longer obsessing. I think we’ve finally turned the corner and I’m looking forward to wider travel soon.
We are extremely lucky to not have had any close family or friends severely impacted. And now that we’re all fully vaccinated, we’re feeling pretty good about getting back to normal.
But I still wear a mask inside the PTO building when I’m not in my office (no longer required for fully vaccinated folks).
