I admit to feeling a little claustrophobic over this. Things here are getting worse, but in no way as bad as Spain or Italy. However, I was just thinking about how there is nowhere to escape this - and it made me feel a little....panicky.
I tend to practise a pretty isolated lifestyle anyway, but it is somehow different when you have to stay home.
I am questioning the things I should be doing; I have very little contact with outside people as it is.
I was chatting with a neighbor yesterday and mentioned something similar to what
said. That it would almost in some ways be better to have the virus and build an immunity to it. It almost seems inevitable that it will continue to spread. And I kind of thought that there were maybe some sickos out there like
mentioned that are actively TRYING to get it and spread it. I had heard some news on a potential vaccine, and that they were testing it. This reminds me of World War Z but without the zombies.
Our province declared a state of emergency earlier this week. I took a 1/2 day off work to go to Costco and register my truck. I wanted to get the registration done before they were no longer accepting walk-ins; but then learned that they were extending the registration date anyway. OH well, it is done now so one less thing to worry about later.
Costco wasn't bad, but sold out of a few things (TP, canned tomatoes, kidney beans). I did manage to get dog food but even those supplies looked low.
I think it is the unknown that is bothering me so much. There are no plans to look forward to as who knows how long this will go on for - I suspect a few months at minimum. I just feel blessed that my horses are at home so I can continue to spend time with them. I will still ride, etc on the property and down the roads, but I am now a little leery. The last thing I need is a fall and a trip to a hospital!
All schools were closed last week and it was determined at the end of the week that diploma exams were also cancelled. I believe the teachers are still working to try and develop some sort of plan....but as of right now all my friends with kids are just trying to find ways to entertain them at home.
My b/f is still working - in fact, he was sent out on a job out of town yesterday. Normally I am glad when he is gone, but with everythign going on it all of a sudden feels kind of lonely. Guess that is why this post is kind of rambly. lol.
My hat goes off to all the retail folks/grocery store people, hospital folks, truckers & farmers.
