Way to put politics over science and greed over common sense, guys.
Also, I read this article about COVID tests and early releases for moms heading to local maternity wards, and I am suddenly TERRIFIED to have the baby.
Also also, I do thing where I understand that takeout won't kill us (we still haven';t gotten takeout, and to be honest, we probably will not), and I do not have to wash my groceries, but I cannot even help myself. I take anything that can be taken out of outside packaging out, wipe things that can't be unboxed, and wash and prep ALL PRODUCE the day I bring it home.
While this last thing DOES make my normal dinner prep easier, and DOES make us eat more fruits and veggies for snacks (both huge wins!), it also take way too long. Putting away the groceries has become a multi-hour process. Silver lining: only once a week?
Are you a grocery washer? Even better, are you a recovering grocery washer and how did you stop?
Other things I am worried about:
- Opening too soon means we will have to shelter longer later
- Opening too soon means the kids absolutely cannot g back to school in the fall
- Opening too soon means my university will not open for real in the fall, which means financial ruin
- Not being able to take the baby outside until it's almost 2 and a total weirdo
- Giving birth alone and having something go wrong (normal birth alone sounds A-OK)
- Teaching the kids at home forever and having them be idiots because their teacher is the worst.
I think the reason all of the above scares me is that I cannot control ANY OF IT.
