Feeling Deprived Socially

Tuesday, April 07, 2020

This all alone feeling you get when the only interactions you've had in a month is with clerks and the pharmacy is getting awful. I did go to the store today but went a little overboard on the treats. I bought some fruit and some more frozen veggies but I also bought cereal and cookies. They have to last at least a week or so. Or until I run out of water again.

I also bought the bad grocery store chicken and a pint of potato salad and when it hit 65 today I had a picnic on my front porch. Even one of the cats came out to join us.

thank fulls
1. I will make and send masks to anyone that asks. FREE
2. Started work on some small ones and medium sized ones for the kids picking up school lunches everyday.
3. It was a beautiful wonderful day outside...enjoyed my picnic and the sun.

So tomorrow is just a rehash of the last weeks. I finished one of the stars today but have several more to make for the 2nd month of the sew along. And I probably have enough small and medium masks cut ready to sew. That should keep me out of trouble tomorrow. Wish I had more fun boy fabric.

    A picnic on the front porch sounds fun! We're supposed to be getting warmer this week, so hopefully WILL be able to get outside and soak up some sun here in the mountains of Colorado. Last week was cold and snowy, so being inside is getting a little claustrophobic....

    this feeling of social isolation is getting to all of us. reach out more to online friends like here on SP, family and if you can use skype . makes the distance seem not as bad

    How nice that you were able to have your chicken and potato salad out on your porch, must have felt great having a picnic outside.
    Yes it does get lonely, especially for those who live alone. I am more content staying indoors than my hubby. He enjoys going golfing, but has given it up because of the Covid 19 virus. He gets out doing the grocery shopping, certainly not every day but once a week for groceries, and once again if we run out of bread, milk, or cereal or yogurt---it is usually at least 4 items if he goes. He wears a mask when he goes, well actually only into the store, while there and out of the store. I wipe the grocery items once they get in the house. Today they said wear them when outside now too, imagine there will be some people cutting back on their running as a mask isn't easy to wear when your eye glasses steam up. I got all of Jim's maks finished this evening, now have 2 left for me, at least one more for sure.

    IT does get to be very hard to be alone as long as we have been. We do go over to my mom's here in the park taking dinner there every day. She has been in her house a good 3 wks. longer than the rest of us due to a vertigo problem. But she seems to be handling it well with us, the phone and a rare person stopping in. We have gone to having to wear masks when out of our houses.
