I've been pretty honest about what a hard time I've been having getting back out there in the real world. I never had a chance to adjust to masked life before they removed the mask mandate making it all so much more difficult for silly ninnies like me. But...I was down to my last few cans of cat food so it was an urgent matter that got me out to Pet Smart yesterday. I haven't been able to get much delivered. My grocery store, Chewy and Amazon seem to be out of most everything our cats would eat but I did manage to fill up a cart that should last us for a while. We were the only ones in there and we still wore our masks so I survived without too much drama. Pup sure enjoyed herself. It was her favorite destination before covid.
I was so chuffed by my in and out at Pet Smart I even walked into our big chain grocery to peruse the produce aisle. I've wanted some organic kale but what I have been getting at curbside pickup has been yucky. I found a nice bunch and a couple of decent avocados. Baby steps I know but it's still moving forward. I can't ask anymore of this tired old mind and body. A year of worry has taken a toll and it won't be fixed in a few weeks or even months.
Good for you getting out again. Baby steps are a good start!!ReplyDelete
I understand your unease. I’m glad I’m fully vaccinated because there are no COVID restrictions in Wyoming anymore, and Wyoming has the distinction of being a vaccine hesitant state, which means over 60% of people who are out and about are not vaccinated.ReplyDelete
Yeah for getting out! WE are still ordering online and trying to stay really safe yet! I do not miss the grocery store anyway.ReplyDelete
We still wear masks at the grocery store, too! It sure is nice to be able to choose your own produce, isn't it?ReplyDelete
We still wear our masks most places. I don't even CARE if people look at me funny.ReplyDelete
Our stores (beyond essentials) are finally opening up to more than curbside pick up on Friday. (Limited capacity and masks still required). I'm looking forward to going to the dollar store - I have house plants that need repotting, and they have the best selection of cheap ceramic pots.ReplyDelete
But you are already succeeding and I see it! You did go out. You did get in the car. You did go into the store. You are better than you suspect!!!!!! I wear the mask inside all the time.ReplyDelete
We still wear our masks in public, too. I don't mind the extra safety. Plus, I worry about the people who can't be vaccinated.ReplyDelete
It is strange, isn't it? Keep adding to your list of places and you will keep having less and less stress. Glad Pup enjoyed her outing!ReplyDelete
I am still a mask wearing Queen although almost everyone I see is not wearing one. I use Bil Jac food for the boys, I love it as it is so pure.ReplyDelete
Small but persistent steps win the race. Take time to be kind to yourself.ReplyDelete
