Week 2 of Corona-madness finds us all hanging in there. There are some folks who are temporarily out of work, so I’m hoping that this unplanned hiatus is a short one. I’ve heard that some employers are paying their employees, anyway, which is a good thing.
All the restaurants in the area have closed their dining rooms, but most are still open for carryout and delivery. Our parish still has Sunday Masses according to schedule, but parishoners fulfill their weekly obligation by streaming the Mass over the Internet. At Costco, when we went to pick up my glasses, the woman at the counter told us that she could give them to me, but I’d have to come back later to have them adjusted. Actually, they fit really well, even without adjusting.
I was scheduled for a colonoscopy yesterday, but they called and rescheduled it for June. At least they called before I had started the prep. Personally, I’d be more than happy to live in blissful ignorance of what’s going on in my large intestine, but both the doctor and the insurance company are getting a little insistent.
From our perspective, this hasn’t made that much of a change in our lives. We don’t go too many places to start with, we have no kids in the schools, and I’m retired, so I don’t have to work from home. I check the CDC’s website daily to see how quickly things are emerging, but aside from that, I don’t waste my time with the media’s reports. We’re keepng our hands clean.
