  • Wedding: May 2020

My wedding is on June 7th, bridal shower in April, bachelorette in May, and honeymoon to follow. Haven’t cancelled anything yet, but it’s looking that way… feeling very depressed. Fiancé and I are also supposed to move abroad for a year in August for a research study he is conducting; don’t know if that’s happening either 🙁

Just cancelled my trip to Hawaii for next month. Really sad as I haven’t been on a vacation in probably four years. 

I’m sad I can’t get eyelash extensions. I have been getting them for years and fear what I look like without them lol. 

I miss going to the gym, or simply going out for dinner on weekend nights. 

I have gel nails and I need them off. I am not sure how to take these buggers off at home. I’m thinking of buying my own nail filer machine on Amazon and acetone? Any advice welcomed.

acapelopd :  Girl I 100% feel you on needing your gel nails off. I ordered acetone and the scraper handheld tool kit from Walmart online over a week ago.. but no idea when they will get here. 

 

This whole situation is affecting me in many ways but I really don’t even want to list them all out right now. So here is my pettiest vent..

My instacart shopper thought it would be acceptable to replace my mini eggs with kinder surprise eggs. NOT THE SAME KATHERINE.

Here’s my rant. In Ontario (Canada) cases of covid-19 are exploding, and the premier announced closures of all non-essential businesses today, saying the decision is a difficult but necessary one. 

The list of closures was released last night and what a joke. Banks, automotive stores, dealerships, manufacturers of anything, pet stores, hardware stores, government offices, mines, pretty much EVERYTHING IS STAYING OPEN. The only closures are hair salons/Beauty salons/nails, eat in restaurants – take out is open, and malls. Thats it. 

Sooo… Welcome covid-19 to Canada, we fully embrace you.

it’s nice to able to have a rant without feeling too guilty about it.

1. I had a start date for a new job. This is now on hold. Having worked my notice at my previous place I am now sitting in no man’s land. I’m effectively not employed anywhere 🤷‍♀️

2. I wear hair extensions. My salon has closed. I have no idea what I’m going to look like in 4 weeks 🙄. 

Hardly major issues in the scheme of things but so nice just to get it out.

skyeatnight :  Right, to add to my list I had a hair appointment this week that has obviously been cancelled. My hair is so damn brassy. 

I am afraid to know what I will look like in three weeks. Us females will be flocking to these services again once we are able to come out of hiding lol. Ughh. It’s so small in the scheme of things but I agree I think it’s good to be able to vent about the small stuff too.

I am annoyed for two reasons. 

I live in a resort community and our population is very, very small when you take out the tourist factor. We should be able to isolate ourselves and get through this fast. However, the tourists are still coming in droves! They are shopping in our stores and clogging up our recreational areas. The part that really pisses me off is that our grocery stores are open with limited hours to serve the community, but the majority of the customers are tourists getting snacks for their day out hiking. It makes my blood boil. 

My other gripe is that I need to have a mammogram and all breast screening in my province is cancelled until further notice. I will be on a wait list, but who knows how long it could take to reach the top at this point.

Even though we’re constantly told it’s the Millenials that aren’t taking this virus seriously, I actually think it’s the Boomers who aren’t. I see tons of retirees out golfing in groups at the golf course near where I live. Hell, even my parents keep asking me to come over when my dad is immunocompromised despite me explaining why I shouldn’t. It’s frustrating AF! I finally had to tell my mom to stop asking me until all this has blown over a little, as I would never forgive myself if I uknowingly passed anything to them. I have a hard time telling them no, but it’s making me realize I need to work on having better boundaries.

Yes! My husband and I have to keep telling our parents in their mid-late 60s not to go out.  Two weekends ago when this started getting real in my state I called my mom and she had gone to lunch and was shopping at the mall…wtf?!? Meanwhile we’ve been in our house for almost 2 weeks with maybe 2 quick trips to the grocery store/get takeout from our favorite local restaurant.

skyeatnight :   My only pandemic “hoarding” was buying two boxes of my hair dye instead of one.  Not really hoarding at all, lol, but hair dye on my very important shopping trip when I’m lucky to find bread? Well, yes!  I’m not going to stop coloring my roots over this unless all hair dye is sold out beyond internet reach!  If chocolate runs out.  I will, however, lose all hope.

msladyk81 :  Hey neighbor! Fellow Michigander here. We can’t wait for nice weather. The days it’s dark and cloudy here are absolutely TERRIBLE for my mental state. How are you holding up?

bluebee19 : 

Hi😊. Just trying to stay positive and only look at the news once or twice a day. I’ve been exercising at home but I can’t wait for it to warm up so we can get outside a little more. I just don’t enjoy being outside in the cold…lol. We have still been getting a little snow here too unfortunately. Also staying away from the stores cause I’m in the SE part of the state where the virus is hitting the hardest. Unfortunately I’m going to need groceries soon and I’m scared of how it’s going to be. Last time I went was over a week ago and we were able to get most of what we needed, but who knows what it’s like now.

I’m annoyed that I can’t get my online order to go through with IKEA. They are still offering click and collect, which I feel okay about (just quarantine everything in the garage for a bit!) but apparently they have ‘reached capacity for orders’ right now, and delivery costs $80 and isn’t available until a month from now when I fully expect everything to have quit. I just want to be able to set up my son’s new room (moving him for a baby on the way).

gildedblooms :  i was with you until the old lady. That’s theft. Paper towels are non essential. 

we finally decided to go buy some groceries, everything was out in our local grocery store we usually go to. Walmart was also out of rice, flour, TP, oil? Canned tomatoes and mashed potatoes, also almost no pasta left. Now my husband is starting to freak out. We have few days of food so hopefully they restock. Not a huge deal since I can always eat at work and bring him food and tons of restaurants are still open for take out but still freaky.
