Pandemic Relief Bill Fails to Pass

September 14, 2020

Well, as promised, Congress voted on a new pandemic relief bill this week. And, as expected, it failed to pass. The bill included more money for small business loans, funding for schools and the Postal Service, scaled-back unemployment benefits, and liability lawsuit protections for schools, businesses, and healthcare providers. Democrats felt it fell short of what is actually needed. A new bill is unlikely to pass before the November election.

The yuckiness of the partisan fighting over it seemed to match the grey mood I was in last week due to the equally grey weather. Crabby kids, a crabby mom, and continued uncertainty sure are trying to drag us down. But sometimes, when things stall out and pauses or changes are forced upon us, regrouping, breathing, and getting perspective are good.

For me, after a hectic two weeks of “back to school” chaos and uncertainty, taking some time to get some routines and schedules in place, and reflect on how things can be improved is just what I need to distract me from my crummy mood. That and getting outside to enjoy the beautiful weather we have been promised this week. Hopefully, unlike congress, the weatherman delivers!
