  • Wedding: May 2020

I’m so thankful that for now we are all healthy. I’m scared to death though, I’m an RN in a hospital in California and we know we’re in trouble. That is weighing heavily on me. Plus we had to postpone our May 2nd wedding to October 10th because of all the restrictions. We lost our DJ, my bouquet won’t be peonies because they’re not in season. Everything seems to have a dark cloud and I’m so sad and worried about how we’ll all pull through ok

lifeisbeeutiful :  I completely hear you. We just received a “Safer at Home” decree from the governor, but it left open banks, grocers, gas stations, auto repair, healthcare, warehouses (especially Mordstrom and other department stores), walmart, etc.

So the question becomes, what IS closed? If people are still working in close proximity in many areas, then what is it that’s safer? I am frustrated. As teachers, we are no longer in the building, but we’re teaching “virtually” as much as possible. But all the people from all these other areas are still working? And still working closely with others? I won’t even shop online anymore because I think it’s a crime that department store workers are still on the job.

msladyk81 :  We’re in the same part. I heard that our grocery stores have been rebounding a bit. I haven’t been to Costco of Meijer, but the smaller community stores seem stocked. It’s nuts here. I have family who work for one of the delivery companies and they said it’s a ghost town and kind of unsettling.

bluebee19 :  I was actually thinking that it might be better to try some of the smaller farmers market type stores. There are a few by my house that also sell basic groceries like milk, eggs, pasta, etc. We don’t have a Costco Membership, and Sam’s Club has just been a complete nuthouse for the past month. We have a membership at BJs Wholesale as well and there was WAY more on the shelves there than at Sam’s. It has only been open for a few months so maybe there aren’t as many members there yet. Maybe that’s why?

acapelopd :  I went to the doctor today and the receptionist’s hair was looking green. Like supposed to be blonde but was a tint of green. Your post reminded me I gotta have extra grace for ladies in these times!
