Made it to Truckee
Saturday, April 10, 2021
We got all of our chores at home done by around noon. Had to mow lawn, finish the wash, move the flowers
that were in pots so they get water, etc and we took off for our house in Truckee. Got here around three and then we did our chores here. Turned on the water, turned off the roof melters, cleaned up a bit. Lots of dirty melting snow. We went out to the nearby restaurant late after we had finished our chores went to grab a salad and we were chatting with the waitstaff as we picked up our food. I said this is great to see people back in your restaurant when will you be able to go above 25%? He said in a very sad voice, we may be closing on Tuesday as the numbers are going up in Nevada City.
I am so confused, our governor says we are going to be fully open by June 1 and Nevada County may shut down restaurants again. It is a very rural county also. Evidently the counties have the final say in what gets to open. It is also a county with a huge area of land and one town with a larger population has an uptick and they will shut down the entire counties ability to stay open. These are such tough decisions to make.
is doing great, our older dog is not. It is tough for her to make it up the stairs and my husband and I are assisting her up most days. She still eats and sleeps and does not appear to be in pain. Yesterday I found her standing in a corner, not knowing where to go or what to do. Im not sure if she is losing sight and hearing or if it is dementia. We will hand on as long as she is comfortable. Sometimes at home the cats will just go and lie by her almost as if to comfort her.
Today we are off and driving through Nevada to Mammoth CA. We have never been. I did very well yesterday two salads and hope that I can keep this up. It will be 7 days on the road, then one day home and off to Chicago for 6 days for work.
I am doing a mini plan each night so I can feel more control of my diet and exercise.
We aren't really world travelers but had planned to go to Australia or Greece for our anniversary and instead we are on a road trip to Death Valley and Palm Springs. I feel lucky we can do anything at all. We both made it through so far and kept working. Our son who is 49 gets his shot today.
49 years married, together for 51. I am not sure why I am so blessed but I love him and pray we keep healthy to enjoy a few more years.
