I've been running early in the morning, to avoid others. Actually I always have. I prefer seeing no one when I run.
Today I took my phone and took a photo of the middle school, where my son Scott went 15 years ago. I saw the marquee and it was a little sad. No one knows if the schools will start up again.
I saw the sign for lunches. I could see cars pulled up before 7.
Grab & Go Meals. The sign looked so cheery, but it was a sad reminder that kids are missing lots of other things. Public schools offer meals, counseling, refuge...
I ran by Kids R Kids Daycare. The lights were on, as they always are at 7. I could see staff wearing masks.
I wondered what jobs these parents have. Are parents scared to leave their kids? Are the kids scared to go in, seeing teachers and staff in masks? The parents who drop off their children, must be under so much stress.
Then I crossed the street and realized how quiet the road was. Usually I would have to wait a moment to cross. It's sad and peaceful.
How long will this go on?
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
