  • 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!

paigelove :  I totally agree!  My mom had cancer last year and my dad is immune compromiosed and my mom won’t stop going over to visit my brother, sister in law and their 4 kids 5 and under.  My mom is currently not speaking to me because I got mad at her for not staying home. I am actually more pissed at my brother and sister in law for not insisting that she stay home but I am not getting involved anymore after saying my piece to my mom.   My husband and I are essential employees, we are field supervisors for Child Nutrition at school districts and we cannot stay home and neither can our employees because we still have to feed the kids.  I wish more people would just stay the F home!

  • Wedding: October 2020 - Santa Barbara

Thank you for a place to vent

-First thing is I cancelled our wedding which isn’t until Oct but I cancelled it due to COVID 19, mom has to have knee surgery, my fiancé got laid off and we have no savings 

-I’m on paid leave due to being high risk at catching COVID 19 but that could change soon so I may have to go through hoops to get to my doctor to have them send my employer something about my health

– I have headaches every day because of stress 

-I hate being stuck mostly in the house but I feel guilty when I leave the house 

– Bills are getting too much to pay on just my income 

-We have to delay TTC for probably another year due to our current financial situation and COVID 19 (I really don’t want to pregnant until this is over) 


Even though all this is happening I’m trying to find the silver lining.

-Every one I know is healthy at this moment 

-I didn’t want to have a big wedding 

-I don’t have to pay rent

-I have family to help us if I lose my job

-I am getting paid leave currently 

-I have an amazing fiancé who understands and holds me when I cry over the smallest of things

– I have learned to become a better cook

I work as an RN at a small hospital. We just don’t have the resources to help the community. PPE is becoming scarce
