Covid-19 and politics are clearly affecting my disposition so feel free to move on to someone posting a lovely flower photo. I understand, really. 🙂
I’ve been staying home, picking things up curbside again, and just mainly avoiding my fellow residents because of ‘hot spots,’ ‘exposure sites,’ ‘community spread,’ and a daily increase in cases.
People are sick of Covid-19. I get it. I’m sick of it, but not wearing a mask is not part of the solution. I’d like someday to be able to hug my grandkids again so I’ll continue to wear my mask, and I would sincerely appreciate it if you’d wear yours too.
We’ve had ten restaurants and bars shut down because of community exposure. Hello, people, do you still think it is a good idea to go to your favorite bar when some folks are also going when they’ve already been diagnosed positive? I don’t understand why there isn’t a ramification of any kind if you choose to go out into the community when you’ve been diagnosed with Covid-19.
They shut down hockey rinks here for a couple of weeks after a community spread so they could clean and everyone could be tested before starting up again. What happened? Parents protested the idea of their kids having to be tested before they could return.
Halloween in a middle of a pandemic? In what universe do parents think it is a good idea to send their young children to strangers’ houses to take candy from them? We’ve been going through months of being advised to wipe down all of our groceries so what is going to happen on Halloween – Lysol spray all the candy wrappers?
As I headed to pick up groceries curbside, I drove past so may political signs I couldn’t count them with some of them the size of a small billboards. I’ve never seen yard signs this big before. Maybe they think retirees need large print.
Do you have ugly signs too? I mean we have these huge signs hand painted or with banners that cannot be called anything but nasty and inciteful. It makes me wonder who these people are and what their end game is because it’s certainly not to bring us together that is for sure.
I voted weeks ago, but everywhere I look including my phone, internet, TV, mailings, signs, everyone wants me to vote. I voted folks, leave me alone. I’ll check back in on the 4th.
I hope this last week in October finds you well, not bothered by these issues, still sane which I’m clearly not, and that you will stay safe this week as we head into November.
Life will seem much better after dessert at least until I get the next text, email, turn on the TV, or go out to get the mail.
I also need to grab the snow shovel so it’s handy because the ‘s’ word is in the forecast for the end of the week, which is definitely the cherry on life’s sundae. 🙂
