Dinner: Red Thai Curry (Instant Pot)
DL(15) also made some hummus. He tried a new recipe, it turned out really well.
I don't know what on earth is going on but, we got taken off lockdown with 9% or 10% ICU capacity. ???? Was supposed to stay on lockdown until back above 15%. I can't help but wonder if it's politically motivated (caving to pressure) and seems incredibly premature. On the flip side, mostly no one is adhering to the lockdown so maybe it just doesn't matter. It was probably more about getting people to use their brains over the Holidays, which as far as I can tell did not work whatsoever.
Crossing my fingers that it's not just politics and they actually know something (they are going off projections, and things seem to be moving in a good direction).
Nothing will change for us personally, it is very dire right now. I don't want to be contributing to the stress on the healthcare system.
I saw last night that one of MM's friends was accepted to the local State college (saw this on Facebook). Wow, that makes it all very REAL! 4 out of 5 colleges that MM(17) applied to are crazy competitive (including another State college) so I don't expect to have any news of any sort for a while. But... His "safety school" and the most under-rated college he applied to is our alma mater (yet another State college). I don't know what to call it because it would also be an excellent choice and could also be his first choice. It's more than just a safety school. But, it is the one college where his acceptance is guaranteed and I wonder when he will get that official word. Maybe any day now.
