BtmBearDad Posted August 30, 2021 Share Posted August 30, 2021 I posted back a while ago now that I had nabbed a cheap first class ticket on BA r/t to London that I was planning to use this week. I was soooo looking forward to a few weeks away, seeing family and friends I haven’t seen since late 2019-early 2020, taking quick cheap flights to here and there, reacquainting myself with a few providers, etc.. But alas, due to work and personal reasons, I’m still in NYC 😩 So while my boss and his partner are swanning around Greece and the Med for the next 6 weeks, I’m here holding down the fort. Mind you, I don’t begrudge them at all - he and his partner are really sweet men. Plus, it is pretty sweet having the CEO as an out, gay man. But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t wish it was me on vacation now. I don’t know if it’s the normal Monday meh feeling, or covid fatigue, or reading about new lockdowns, or a combination, or what. But I’m just feeling it all today. Truthfully have been since last week - it’s just gotten more intense day by day. So much so, my usual “pick me ups” - a few drinks, some time with a provider or FWB, haven’t done the trick. Its been 18 months now since I’ve left the state - even during that time I haven’t really gone farther than spending some time out East. Even business travel is still on pause. I was meant to go to Moscow in late November, but that’s be shelved now. I do have a wedding in FL in early November I thought I’d go to, and extend for a few days of fun in Miami/Ft Lauderdale, but who knows what FL will look like by then. I guess I’m wondering if any of you gents have gotten to this point, and how you coped, are coping, got out of it. It just feels like the past nearly 2 years have just been a waste in so many ways, and I’m not seeing any changes to that anytime soon. I think I was pushing myself thru all the ups and downs that come with covid with the thought “just get thru this lad, you’ll be in London in late Aug/early Sept, Florida in late Oct/early Nov, and Moscow in late Nov/early Dec” but now that those carrots are gone, it’s just a stick offering noting. Ah well - I’m sure this too will pass, and I do fully recognise things could be far worse too. Thanks for listening to me vent.
