This is Part 4 in a series of blog posts I am writing these posts so that in 2, 5, or 10 years down the line I can come back to this blog and read about the craziness that was the Corona Virus that hit the world in the Winter and Spring and Summer of 2019-2020.
I have a new song to represent this weeks post. Social Distancing is all about standing 6 feet apart. So Don’t Stand So Close To Me!!
It’s about about a month since my last update. Here is what has happened since the last post.
Mass has started back up in small quantities. Everyone has to sit 6 feet apart from each other. I haven’t ventured back yet but probably will soon.
I’ve been having fun watching different masses online though.
My mom said they won’t lift the dispensation until parishes can accomodate everyone which means when Social Distancing isn’t a thing…and I honestly don’t see that happening anytime soon.
I wonder if parishes will be forced to have more masses at some point or mass is just going to be something we won’t get to go to every week. Such strange times.
Stores seem to be better stocked right now which is good. I seem to be able to find everything I need.
School is now out for the summer. Nothing has been said about what will happen in the fall. The CDC has posted some “guidelines” that are just impossible to kids to deal with. I love this youtube principal Gerry Brooks he is so right about it all.
Going on Day 75 of Disney World being closed. They have proposed to reopen on July 15th. It’ll be interesting to see what happens. Universal, Sea World, and Lego Land are opening next week so it’ll be interesting to see what people say about that or what happens.
Disney Springs did reopen last week but I haven’t heard much about it. Most reports I’ve seen are that’s been pretty quiet. They only let a certain amount of people into certain stores. They are doing temperature checks and making everyone wear masks.
Update on my place of work being closed. They are still working on finishing the renovations. I really have no idea when they will be done. Hopefully soon. Doesn’t look like we will be opening for the original June 1 date. Now they are saying “in a few weeks” whatever that means. It’s really out of our hands. They talked about getting a food truck to sell food but my boss said it wouldn’t be worth the expense for what we would be able to sell. Plus it’s hard to get ground meat right now. So we’d be very limited on what we could serve in a small space vs a full kitchen.
The stay at home order was lifted on May 1st. Restaurants reopened first with only outside seating at 6ft apart and 25% capacity inside. Bars still closed. A week later restaurants could be at 50% capacity inside. Bars are still closed and man people are mad. I never go to bars so I don’t even care.
Beaches are reopen as long as you stay distanced from others and in groups of less than 10. Nail and Hair salons are reopened with limited number of people inside and the bowling alley reopened.
The movie theatres haven’t reopened but no new films are being released so not really a point to open anyway. Last I heard a lot of movie releases were delayed till July but haven’t heard of any updates on those. I really think this pandemic is going to already kill a dying industry. :/
Some movies like Trolls went right to TV. Trolls did a special where you could rent it on TV for like $20 for the weekend. I’m sure more movies will do something like that.
Let’s talk cases. I have no idea how many we have. The reports are always showing the same numbers in the 200s. I was reading yesterday that our county doesn’t have a lot of tests and then that Florida is being sued for reporting inaccurate info so who knows.
And with all the get togethers for Mother’s Day and Memorial Day I think that the numbers are going to get worse but who knows. Last weekend was Memorial Day and I went out a few times and it was just crazy there were people EVERYWHERE. My boss told me she checked out a new restaurant and you would have thought COVID never happened. No one was social distancing there were people everywhere it was crazy.
I’m supposed to fly in July we’ll see if we feel safe to do that. I’d like to go visit my mom sometime this summer but we’ll see if that happens. This is so strange.
That is all that is really going on for now. It’s starting to get really boring and depressing being at home all the time. I’m trying to keep myself busy working from home for my job and freelance stuff.
I still need to figure out some new stickers to add to my Sticker Shop. Maybe I will work on figuring out how to make washi tape and labels. I’ve been doing a lot of watercolor and I want to work on incorporating it into bible journaling.
How are you doing? Let me know! I’d love to chat! Leave me a comment or a message on any of my social medias I’m always around.
