The husband and I are keeping busy and practicing spousal distancing as much as we can during the day. It\’s like he does his thing – I do mine and we come back together at dinner and the evening. It works. We had a fire in the firepit the other night and that was enjoyable. We\’re thinking of, setting up the tent one night soon. Hey, why not? No rules here, we can do whatever we want, in our own backyard!
We\’re thinking about getting some landscaping done on our front yard – from the end of the picket fence to the street. I don\’t know. We keep changing our minds.
At the Veterans Home, the 91 yr old man that had COVID-19, died last week. Navy worked in the Covid19 side and while he didn\’t tell me, I figured it out. All total Shasta County has had 30 and now 4 deaths. They called to inform us, that they were testing everybody at the Home; employees as well. That\’s because it is a State-run facility. (Cal Vet) My other son works at a private facility and they haven\’t been tested yet, but so far so good.
We have several types of people here –
- the ones who are freaked out and scared to even open their front door. Yet they are angry and bitter with those who choose not to live in fear. They try to shame you because they believe you are not taking this seriously.
|shaming – I\’m in the middle|
- Then we have the other side of the pendulum – defiantly rebellious. They try to \”shame you\” if you choose to wear a face mask.
- Then you have me – I am not interested in how this started, or if it was some conspiracy. I deal in the here and now – one step at a time. I don\’t think this is Armageddon and it really irritates me, all the freaking you-tube videos I am being lambasted with. I do me. I am not afraid I am cautious. It all depends on where you live and your perspective. My husband has a heart valve issue – I am 66 and have chronic low blood pressure. I won\’t apologize, for not wanting to take unnecessary risks. I go to the store (sometimes) early in the morning and it hasn\’t been an issue. I don\’t live in a populated area.
It seems to be split over party lines. I don\’t have a party I am loyal to. I am me, always in the middle, doing my own thing. My husband leans toward the \”not afraid\” side but so far I am pulling him away, using his health situation as a slap in the face. I can objectively see the merits of both sides –
I do think our Governor has done an awesome job (even though he talks like a robot) and I\’d much rather be here, than any other state. Sure in the past, I like to joke about California and some of our politics – but I can do that. I live here! It\’s that love-hate relationship but when it all comes down to it, I love my state.
Crime in my town went down 35% since last year! Hey, Covid19 is good for something I guess.
