Long time no blog! I am using this time of quarantine as a way to get reacquainted with the wonderful habit of journaling and blogging with a first person voice, keeping you and me entertained in the process. You may feel like you have missed a few episodes, or rather a whole season! I will try to catch up as we go. In the meanwhile, stay safe and wash your hands 🙂
Over two freaking months that we have been locked down, and I still don’t get it.
I am especially confused by what is going on at my husband’s work, and the communication done by the city, county, and state.
At work, the Marines are one day instructed to do shift work, one day to work full time because it would look like slacking, one day to not be around each other, one day they’re crammed together for no need. It’s exhausting to keep track, so I have given up and removed myself from caring.
My husband is stressed because of it and it sucks, but that’s nothing I can change so I don’t try to.
Yesterday, San Diego county announced its move to Phase 2, so restaurants are open for dine in and you can go to the mall. But at the same time, the same county page says we are under a stay-at-home order and should go out for essential needs only.
Essential needs are work, buying food, exercising and medical. Or is a family restaurant outing now an essential need?
People don’t care anymore. I had two handyman come look at my AC. The first one came with a mask half put and shook my hand on his way out, the second one came without a mask, asked me if I cared, I said no, he came in, with zero care for social distancing.
In truth, we don’t have a lot of cases, only 18 on Coronado island, although it might be much more because bases are not allowed to disclose how many cases they’re dealing with.
So is life back to semi-normal? I went out yesterday for food, but I don’t have much interest in a sit down restaurant dinner. Especially since workers don’t make much money or have healthcare, so they’re the typical demographic that would come to work sick because they need to.
I guess I’ll just stay home some more then.
