Texas is Opening
Texas is easing restrictions. It's worrisome. Some salons and restaurants are open. I could get my hair cut. Don and I could dine in an actual restaurant if we wanted. But I'm not ready.
If I could trust everyone around me, I would be ready to venture out a little more. But there are too many people ignoring the virus and refusing to wear masks in store.
We'll just do carryouts from places like this neighborhood restaurant. With a sign like this, I know the owners are taking things seriously. Unfortunately, many of their customers aren't. The young woman working there, said they had been "booed" for having a sign, requiring masks. I told her the sign made me want to be a customer!
Lowe's Hardware Store
Two days ago, I went inside a store for the first time in two months.. Don and I cringed at the crowded parking lot, but felt relieved once we got inside.
The majority of customers wore masks and kept their distance. I felt like everyone was pretty much "getting it". There were reminders over the speakers now and then, telling us to respect social distancing. This is a weird world. But I was appreciative.
Who Will Wear Masks?
I was relieved that my first store outing was successful. I was happy to get all the things we need, if we hunker down for a couple more months. But, how are things going to get out there? Will people start feeling less uncomfortable about masks and just start making it routine? I doubt it.
When you have a president who refuses to wear a mask, you can't expect everyone to think masks are important. President Trump didn't even wear a mask when he visited the mask making factory.
The doctors who are trying to share their wisdom, are wearing masks now. He is starting to look like the silly one out there.
Pretty soon, he will be the only one out there not wearing a mask. This just makes no sense.
Cancer - Covid
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.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
