Waiting in the Hospital is Such a Blast

I’m sitting here in line waiting to make an appointment for a vaccine shot that I don’t really need.

I think of all the wasted time the world has spent dealing with this virus and how it never had to happen in the first place.

Maybe it could have been avoided and the world would have been like it was, but this is not the case. It’s made air travel such a pain that I don’t think about flying home anymore. I miss my family, but I have no desire to go through all the chaos of flying in today’s world. So as I sit here in the hospital looking at all of the nice white ductwork above me humming from the air conditioner, I realize for once that I am so lucky not to be stuck in here with some type of illness. It’s easy to take for granted all of the small blessings that we have and to look for the sadness in life. I think when I get home I’ll clean my HVAC filter and furnace filter and just feel glad to be healthy and alive. Maybe a trip to the hospital is good to reset the mind and remind us of how good we actually have it. I may even stop by the HVAC store and buy myself a little smart thermostat and install it myself today. I feel good from this trip to the hospital and am more aware of all of the good things in my life. I feel recharged like an old air conditioner that’s been given a new life.
