I don\’t think the Governor will be able to enforce a strict lockdown as it was back in March. Small rural county – people around here cherish their independence but by now, most of them do comply with the masks and social distancing. I am concerned about the small business here – most are struggling as it is. Most have families and are not rich people. It\’s their livelihoods. Now when I say something like that, there are always those who like to interpret what I said, to imply I don\’t care about the elderly. Of course, I do. My FIL is 94 – I\’m 66. Yes, I care. But I also believe, we need to get our businesses back so they can provide for their families. I\’m not talking about Target or Lowes here. There has to be a better plan.
The local cult/church made world news – all the way to Europe. How embarrassing. They have brought so much shame to our town throughout the years – December was when they prayed to resurrect their little daughter and held a resurrection vigil for days – live-streaming the event. Now this with the covid – Plus they are running 2 people for our city council.
This week has flown by for me. I had to check with my husband if today was really Friday.
We received an email from the Cal Vet home Admin. where my FIL lives and they informed us about their lockdown. Well, they have never really opened but each neighborhood is on lockdown and they are required to stay in their rooms. All personnel has to wear complete PPE when dealing with the residents. Navy sent me a cute photo of himself. Foodie phoned me yesterday afternoon to tell me that one of his favorite residents passed away at age 81. He was really sad.
Soon the holidays will be here – starting with Halloween. I\’m guessing the kids won\’t be trick or treating this year – not even at the malls. For myself, I am not into Halloween anymore. But I know how much the kids love it. My husband enjoys it so he sits outside and gives out the candy. My dog barks and I always pray for rain. I know I know, what a bitchhh I am. Hey, I did the whole Halloweeny thing when my boys were young and when I had my daycare business and when I was a Nanny. I am burned out. It just ain\’t my thing anymore. I used to get dressed up, decorated the house with Halloweeny things, and for years a neighbor and I who had sons the same ages, always took the boys out as we talked and watched them. Then they grew up. It all stopped. It wasn\’t fun anymore.
