Happy May Day!
Our Stay at Home orders now extend until May 28th. I have about 7 more days to work and then I retire. Two of my co-workers are retiring about the same time, so instead of a retirement party (which I didn’t want anyway) we are going to have Freakin’ Unbelievable Burgers delivered to the lab for lunch on our last day! The franchise store is owned by the family of one of our Senior techs and is only doing carry out during the pandemic, so I am glad we can help them out and get a good lunch for the whole lab at the same time.
Ashlee is getting fed up with staying at home, and really wants to bring Mallory up to our house before she gets stuck at home because she’s having a baby boy in July. The very idea of her traveling up here gives me the shivers. Ken and I are both working (well, so is Ashlee), and I am so, so afraid of getting them sick.
It’s actually the first time I have broken down and cried (except for eyes tearing up) since this craziness started. I was wondering what was going to be my downfall. It is the thought of how badly Mallory and Ashlee want to come up here, and how afraid I am for them to do it.
Even with the stay at home orders Ashlee sounds like she still wants to come up May 14th. I told her we will wait a week or two and see what is happening then. She is just strong-willed enough she might come up no matter what. Ugh.
Well, I know we all HATE this entire thing, but what in the world are we to do? I know everyones’ children and grandchildren want to see each other. But, for now, we just can’t. My boys are so fortunate to be able to work from home. And Ashlee is doing the covid testing herself, so……
I guess we just continue with what we are doing and be grateful for each healthy day.
Take care, friends1
