Have you been socializing yet?

By Ange's Table

Good morning all.  How are you doing today?

Today I want to talk about how we are living our lives now, in the world of COVID. 

Have you done any socializing?  Been out to eat, or the mall?  Gone to any family parties?  We are still staying mostly to ourselves here. 

I know that some people are having large get-togethers, and feel totally safe with that.  It still makes me very nervous.

I understand that most people can fight off and kick COVID in the a$.  But I have had family members hospitalized needing oxygen.  I have also had family members pass away from COVID.  Table Jr has an immune deficiency, where he cannot make the part of his immune system that protects anything with a mucus membrane.  That’s our nose, throat, lungs, stomach, intestines.  I can go on, but I think you get it.

Mr. Table and I have had a select few friends come by, but we keep it to being in the backyard.  It’s being in the enclosed spaces that freak me out.

I cannot wrap my head around the fact that the government wants to open schools.  Even to have the children go a few days a week, but we are not allowed to vote in person, or go to a movie.  How is being in a large group for just a short while not safe, but young kids that we all know will not follow social distancing, or keeping a mask on correctly for 6 hours a day, in the same room is safe?  Someone please explain this to me.

I really am interested in what others are doing.  We have been to one outside family gathering, and it was fun to see family we haven’t in a while.   I wish we could just go on about our lives, and not have constant anxiety that I could bring something home to my son.

Whatever tips, or ideas you have, I would love to hear them.

Thank you all for following along with Ange’s Table.  I appreciate each one of you, and pray that you and yours stay safe and well.
