Our state (RI) was doing relatively well for the first wave. Then things changed after Oct. The back to school in Sept. and general complacency contribute to the upward trend and people lost the sense of reality. So essentially while we are reaching the same new daily case level as the first wave, the school, Halloween, business continue on, like our governor thinks she put too much restrictions for the first wave and there is lots of room for deaths to grow.
I have been saying the good economy can only be achieved with healthy population. My point is less popular now. People seemed to think they have suffered enough from the lock-down 5 months ago and are not too worried about the elders health and well-being. Too bad a lot more people are going to get sick and suffer deaths and long term tissue damages that will be costly from this totally preventable pandemic simply because people can't treat it seriously.
It's been a rough week, school started for my 9 year old. Oh... I mean.... "school".
Sucks. We just moved to this suburb, he barely knows anyone. He made 2 close friends last last year, then school shut down. Couldn't meet any neighborhood kids this summer, now he's in remote school. It's depressing...
We are, very much so.
He is something special. He does see his best friend occasionally and a new friend that we met basically through my job (mom works here). Occasionally, sees the 2 new friends he made. We're getting through and he'll come out the other side amazing. I just know he would have made A LOT of friends in school.
Doing very well, thanks for asking. The 9 original fish I put in there are doing great. I also transplanted a big (over 7") silver dollar from my parents' old tank and added three more smaller (3-5") silver dollars to make the original fish feel more at home.
I'm actually considering setting up a smaller 20 gallon tank. I've set up the rockwork for it, but until I figure out what I want to put in it, it's going to stay dry for now.
I've also started lifting/exercising a bit more often.
I feel great. When the heat was over, I resumed my morning jogging (I can't handle cardio in the heat). So far I got involved again, but now I feel wonderful. I put things in order in the yard. Prepared for winter, so to speak. I'm getting ready to watch TV shows in the evenings.
