We're gonna get the news today -- but it would seem we're gonna be in a full lock down starting on Christmas Eve. Yesterday in Quebec there was a protest against the lock downs........ hundreds of folks marched the streets without masks. Bloody brilliant!!
Quebec has been under heavy restrictions for - I don't know - 2 months now?? AND their numbers are still climbing. Their Premier begged them to follow the restrictions and said they could have Christmas if they were good....... they weren't good so now he has cancelled Christmas. Doesn't it sound an awful lot like a parent imposing consequences for bad behaviour?? However - we aren't children. And it's obvious a lot of folks are thumbing their noses at the government and the restrictions.
"In my world" it seems so simple - limit your outings to only essential - groceries and such - and only associate with folks who follow the same self isolation protocols you do....... Shut out the world for the most part.
Having said that - how careful we are - Covid can sneak up on ya. I got a message from a friend on the weekend telling me that she had heard my dentist had tested positive for Covid. I looked at the calendar ........ I was in her chair 7 days before she tested positive. 7 days!!! I can tell you my heart nearly stopped!! Took me a little while to figure out that on Saturday it had been 12 days since my appointment....... and today is the 14th day - and I have no symptoms. phewwwwwwwww
BUT for some reason - this lock down here in Ontario - has really bummed me out ya know?! It doesn't technically change our life at all! We don't eat out in restaurants - we don't go shopping in the shops/malls - don't take winter holidays and the lil one is home schooled..... BUT it has definitely bummed me out.......
Let's do a 'check in' ......... how's everyone doing in your corner of this madness?
