That's fine with me.

But it is also naive to say that next year we will look back.

True. I'd love schools to start, and stay open. That's what I'm hoping for the most. Some structure, normality and friends for the kids!

Going shopping with my kids. My kids haven't been on a food store with me in forever and I actually miss it (Even though they drive me crazy sometimes).
Also having a normal work day, with my kids in school.

Smiling at strangers on the street or the bus. I love to smile at people, and when they smile back it makes my day. Smiling at other people's babies is also awesome, especially if I get a gummy grin back in return.

I feel so blank with a mask on. I want to connect to everyone in a friendly, non verbal way, and my facial expressions are a huge part of who I represent to the world. I feel "muted" and isolated, even when I'm in a crowd.

Funny. I've come to realize that all my distant acquaintances can make simchos without me and my life is much more peaceful without running out to mazel tov simchos every night.

I hope people keep simchos small in the future. And even if they dont... count me out.

I Agree wholeheartedly.
I’m chassidish and after a simcha of my siblings child we all trudge home at 3-4 am exhausted with half asleep, whiny kids. Then there’s Sheva brochos to attend the day after, etc. Never mind the added expense of clothing and hair.
It’s Time for small, homey affairs, And not everyone has to be invited all the time.

I didn't know that I really like people. I like seeing them, and I like making small talk with them.

I am the anti-small talk. I never figured out how to do it, and I would much rather stay home than go places and see people.

But I learned that I was wrong about myself. The mothers of my kids' friends, former neighbors, distant cousins, even cashiers and people stocking shelves. The people we make small talk with; the ones I never thought were important players in my life. They are. They all are.
