Mommyblogger: I Just Can't Wait For the Next Lockdown, So I Can Sleep In Late and Start Day-Drinking By 4 PM (Or Whenever!) Without Anyone Judging Me as a Parent!

I'm not linking this story and not not mentioning the author's name as a mercy. I don't want to be part of a cancelation.

Cheese and crackers -- read the room, stupid bitch. Is putting up a #HotTake MommyBlog and getting some MommyBlog heat and attention really worth calling for more lockdowns?

Yeah I know you claim you're not calling for fresh lockdowns -- except for all the parts of your mommyblog where you do.

Why I'm hoping for another COVID lockdown


Before I get trolled, let me just start off by saying that by NO MEANS do I wish another lockdown or deadly COVID wave upon anyone.

Except for that headline.

And except for the parts coming up.

Many families were devastated by the virus, small businesses suffered, and loved ones were separated for far too long after COVID-19 landed on our shores in 2020. It has been a terrible time.

But as more and more talk about a fourth wave keeps creeping into our daily conversations and news updates, I can't help but be a little bit excited about the idea of being "locked down" again. As horrible and confusing as it was when COVID hit our communities hard, there were plenty of lovely moments during lockdown that we should look back on fondly. And personally, if they happened to me again, I wouldn't be that mad about it.

Here's my #HotTake on liberal mommybloggers: liberal mommies should not be allowed to blog. They should be forced to concentrate on their real responsibilities, which is, as you'll see, getting drunk by 4pm.

Lockdown provided some really great opportunities to connect and slow down. It was the ultimate reminder to not sweat the small stuff and just be present. Here's what I wouldn't mind revisiting because it was truly awesome...

Remote work also eliminated commutes.

Remote work allowed many people to work from anywhere in the world.

Working from home was the best

Essential workers aside, when organisations announced their plans to return to the office, you could hear the collective sigh from miles away. Working from home had great benefits. Firstly, you could work from anywhere -- for me, it was at my parents' farm in the Southern Highlands -- and there was no commuting into the city or navigating bad traffic. You literally got up, logged on, and away you went.

It also meant some extra sleep-in time because you didn't have to get ready to go anywhere. It was literally bed to desk or couch in seconds. What wasn't to love about that?

Many were able to cut down on snacking and being walking more.

Working from home allowed for more exercise time after work.

I was fitter than ever

After the initial COVID kilos took over my body and I was finally able to manage the constant snacking while at home, being locked down meant that I was able to squeeze a long bush walk into my day. Something I never had time to do when I was working in the office.

With the children and dog in tow, we were walking an average of at least 6km a day. It meant we all got some fresh air in our lungs and became fitter than ever. Those COVID kilos melted away quickly and we all felt great at the end of each day.

Can I be serious here? Like totally serious?

If liberal women with empty lives filled with the warm glow of Leftwing Hate-Politics want to add an extra two or three hours of free time per day that they can use for meditation, reading, walking, and self-care, how about they stop watching every stupid series Netflix, HBO, Epix, and Showtime tell bored middle-aged white women they have to watch to be part of the Cultural Conversation (TM), and stop obsessively scrolling through Twitter at every moment of the day?

There's your two to three extra hours per day, ladies.

You're welcome.

...

Working from home allowed people to have a glass of wine at any time.

Happy hour didn't actually have an "hour"

I know you'd be lying if you told me that you didn't once bust open that bottle of gin or pour yourself a cheeky end-of-day wine before 4pm!

I strongly, strongly suspect this is the main draw of lockdowns for Leftwing Winemoms (TM) and that all that crap about the Joy of Bushwalks and Really Connecting With Your Children and Life-Partner is just some bullshit to tell the social worker.

Now that she's mentioned booze twice, I'm sure she'll get right back to claiming this is all about exercise, childcare, and vegetable gardening.

Being at home meant that we were able to celebrate crawling to the end of a combined homeschool/daycare and work day with our tipple of choice.. at any hour we pleased because we had nowhere to go.

Whoops no we're still on getting soused.

So you didn't really want to go out and do things and see people. You just wanted to stay in your home, watch Netflix, sit on the couch and get drunk.

Yes I can see why endless lockdowns would be appealing to you.

What about people who are not socially dysfunctional shut-ins?

Although she spoke earlier about "an end of the day wine by 4pm," I think "4pm" is a euphemism for "11am."

I don't care about her daydrinking, but I surely resent her working to shut down society again so that she can hide her vice.


Now she gets back to pretending it's all about The Kids and Home-Schooling to pretend this isn't primarily about making low-grade alcoholism a valid lifestyle choice.

...

Life lesson nailed, thanks to COVID!

At the Brownstone Institute, Jeffrey A. Tucker writes that they will lock you down again, because we never made them pay for doing it the first time.

More than that, the Biden administration (and all that it represents, including the World Economic Forum, the World Health Organization, and everything else called the establishment) has its own pandemic plans in place. The idea is not to dial back the mandates or cool it on them. It's the reverse: centralize all pandemic planning to make a South Dakota, Georgia, and Florida experience impossible the next time. Also, spend tens of billions in more money.

The principle seems to have emerged among the agencies, intellectuals, and politicians who did this. Whatever you do, never admit to having made any major mistakes. And never connect the economic, cultural, health, and educational disasters all around us to anything the government did in 2020 or 2021! That would be nothing but a conspiracy theory.
