You know the old saying, "You never know what you've got until it's gone"? Well, I think that we've all gotten a huge dose of that in our lives now. There are so many things that we took for granted. So many things that used to bother us, will probably be - or at least SHOULD BE - insignificant from now on.

Have you taken the time to think about what some of those "old inconveniences" are? I know I have. Check out my list...

    Buying Toilet Paper

    Lots of people will not complain about this one, ever again. It used to be an inconvenience. Now, if you find it on the shelves, it's a good, enjoyable thing to buy it!

    Waiting For A Table At A Restaurant

    Now that we can't even go in to sit down at a restaurant, having to wait 10-15 minutes to be seated doesn't sound so terrible, does it?

    [Normal] Trips To The Grocery Store

    Now that there are so many different restrictions at each store - one member per household, only allowed X amount of certain items, etc. - we are kind of longing for the days of regular grocery trips...



    Lots of families are staying home together. Yes, the students have options such as Zoom, Google Classroom, etc. However, now families are seeing how much teachers really mean in everyday life.

    We'll be so happy to be able to attend live concerts again, we won't be complaining about the crowds, the sound quality, or anything else that used to frustrate us!

    Movie Theaters

    This falls into the same category as concerts. We'll be so excited to be able to go to the movies, minor inconveniences won't bother us.

    Obviously, I can't speak for all East Texans, and I know that my list doesn't cover all the things that we won't complain about. This is your chance to fill in the blank. What is something that you won't complain about again? Feel free to leave your message in the comment section below!
