I think my state of Rhode Island has managed the pandemic pretty well, thanks to our previous governor Gina Raimondo, who is now Biden‘s new commerce secretary.
Many people disagree with me but that is my opinion.
She worked very closely with the health department and made all of her decisions based on science. She is so intelligent!
Anyway we definitely have stayed home most of the time for the last year.
Happily, actually ...gratefully, to be honest.
My dear man and I love being together and are very respectful of our individual needs.
What were all those errands we used to run anyway?
I know CVS is hurting since I am at home so much.
I never did get my hair done a lot. I don’t color it at all and I’ve had one haircut in a year...and that was a quick ‘lop 2-3 inches off please’....in and out in 15 minutes.
We used to dine out so regularly and we’ve only done three times in the last year and two of those were outside.
We keep our pantry and freezer stocked so I really only need to go shopping every couple of weeks. (I’m way too fussy to rely on curbside pick up or delivery to my home.)
Anyway, now both of us have gotten our first vaccine, which we’re thrilled about.
I know some people think that once they get the vaccine they can roam free like a get out of jail free card but we are definitely not in that camp.
Au contraire, mon ami...I feel like we have sacrificed so much and come so far ...why take a chance of risking our health now?
I am so grateful for our full freezer and pantry so that if I HAVE to go out I’ll stop at our local tiny market for some fresh meat but if I don’t have to go out we have plenty of food in the house.
What are your thoughts?
Are you planning on doing more things after you are vaccinated?
