Since the lockdown started in Seattle, I am living with my elder daughter and grandson. What I do, when I do it, and how I do it has an impact on their lives too. So though I would love to go out, to get a nice haircut, or a hair color at a salon, I have to weigh my options against the risk of inadvertently exposing them to the Covid-19. I am also obliged to follow the house rules of my daughter and she thinks I need to be extra careful due to my underlying health issues.
So though I would like to resume a few of the post lockdown activities, I don’t. The only outings I’ve had are my two daily walks and a few times to UPS store to post Amazon returns.
For me, there is really no hurry to jump back into social life.
There is ample time to do that when things settle down. Right now I am grateful for the services like instacart who deliver to our doorstep, whatever we order. Then there is Amazon which is practically delivering anything you want. They are my go-to app for anything from Levi’s jeans to body shop products. And if I don’t want or like any of the things I order, they are too willing to take them back with a full and usually instant refund.
So I am staying at home. Being safe and keeping others safe too!
I think it is where my comfort level lies.
