Hello one and all. What a year we find ourselves in. The year that won’t end!
I’m going to state now that some of this post people may not agree with so if you are easily offended please don’t read the portion having to do with the corona virus.
So, the beginning of this year wasn’t so bad. As you may know from my entries under Canadianlynx I got my awesome lovely girl LD Wren my precious black lab at the end of last year. It made one heck of a great Christmas present!
Wren and I are doing well, but sadly our work period I cut short for a little while in march to protect our team. That is when the annoying corona virus started and shut down the world. I felt that due to me being an essential worker I would only put me at risk and not the both of us. Being a new team and all I didn’t want to risk that right away, smiles.
But since corona seems to be going on and on and on I figured enough was enough and it was time to get back to working with my girl. We are both doing great and I’ll get to sharing more stories about her in another post, smiles.
Now for the corona virus that won’t die and has the world scared of it’s own shadow. I lost my mom to this virus at the early stages. It was quite the blow and there’s not a day that doesn’t go by that I wish I could call her up. We were never close, but I could always count on her being there no matter what was going on. It hurt even more losing her because we were making plans for her to meet her latest grandsons. she was so excited! There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t worry about my oldest son and brother that are in another state or my daughter that’s in another country. But, sadly there’s nothing I can do because traveling to make sure ll is well or hug them or visit them is out of the question without having to jump through hoops or miss work which doesn’t help with paying the bills and so many other things.
This corona virus has made people put their lives on hold by scaring them. How many times in the beginning was it stated that children under a certain age won’t get it because of their immune systems? Now all of a sudden it’s school time and kids are getting it left and right. How many news items talk about how many corona cases and how many deaths there are, but never hear about those that survive it? I know of several cases where people got it and are still around to show there is hope.
People keep saying it’s good to stay locked away and for the children because of whatever reason, but how many of these individuals is it actually affecting? All those Uber and Lyft drivers that are staying home collecting income are making it so there’s less cars on the road and who is that hurting in the end? What happens to those individuals that can’t drive and have to have someone drive them? What about those individuals that don’t have extra money that finally have to take a ride that’s way over priced because they have to get to work or the doctor or hell even to the store? Worse of all, what about those individuals that have a disability that need assistance shopping and are on food assistance but can’t get help because corona won’t let them?
These are just some examples on how life has been put on hold for corona. Yes, I believe we should take care, but that’s with anything. What happened before when you were sick, you stayed home until you felt better. What do you do when you sneeze or cough? You’re hopefully polite and not do it on others. Yes, there are sadly immature people in the world or children that just don’t understand yet, but whom do they learn it from? How can they ben taught if all we’re seeing now is stay in and do nothing?
I had someone tell me the other day that most children don’t wash their hands. Hell neither do most adults. I’ve been around when some adult has just taken a nice heath crap and then just left the bathroom right after. Gross! So that reasoning is stupid in my opinion. My 4 year old tells me on a daily basis, sometimes mroe than once that he doesn’t have germs. In fact he now likes to say they get washed down the sink. So children can be taught and seen to understand what needs to be done, but someone has to teach them. Who will teach the adults, well that’s another matter, lol.
I thank my lucky stars that everyday that goes by I’m ok and so are my boys because we do have to go out. I have to work which means they have to go to daycare. This means we are around others for over 8 hours a day since March. Where would I be if I didn’t work? Sadly out on the streets unfortunately like I have heard some places have done to families because they couldn’t pay rent.
How could people eat if we stayed locked away? Sadly, I’m starting to wonder what’s going to happen to me and my family once I get to that point My job can only get me so far with groceries, but instant cart and things like that don’t take food stamps which I have as well but can’t use because assistance in the stores now can’t happen.
What a world we live in at the moment. The year that won’t end and everyone scared to try and continue living with the situation we find ourselves in. Can I have a refund?
Ha, sorry for the long rant, but I just needed to get that off my chest. If you wish to put in your comments please feel free. Good or bad, agree with me or not if you need to rant and let out your opinions too, feel free.
