How was everyones week? The highlight of my week was having my children and grandchildren, my DIL over outside all at the same time. My SIL had a zoom meeting after work so couldn't make it (he was missed). We had pizza and salad, spread out the blankets and lawn chairs and caught up. Although we've seen my son and his family since COVID, they hadn't visited since Christmas so this was pretty special.
I also got my haircut for the second time since February, another treat, I'm the first appointment with just me and stylist in salon and I was my hair before I arrive. I picked a few things up at the library. Great new system, curbside stopped but, you can call and they brown bag your items, check them out and leave then on 2-tables arranged alphabetically inside the main door - no contact whatsoever. In-house browsing or use of computers is available by appointment in 45 min. blocks - haven't found a need to do that.
Our state is not fully reopened. Restaurants are curbside, outdoor dining or in some cases, indoor dining at 50% capacity to allow for social distancing. Bars (outside only) and movie theaters are still closed. Gyms are opened with lots of restrictions.
School openings vary in our state. All of the Catholic schools in our area are opening as they have room to spread out to allow for social distancing. My son lives in a very tiny town where the only school has just 12 students total in first and second grade. So my granddaughter will be starting out in the classroom/first grade. My daughter's 2 girls (1st and 3rd grades) go to an older school with many more students so the only option until November is remote learning. Mom will be taking a LOA from her job to make this work for the family. I feel so bad for all the parents struggling with educating their children in our new normal.
