    Yeah that sucks too. My son had not gotten the recognition he deserved, not ever, and this yr he was going to start varsity as a sophomore.

    Youth baseball just never gets easy.

    We have 30 independent restaurants (incl coffee shops and food carts) in our little tourist town of 2200. Several owners are friends, as is owner of our LBS. They and the large number of retailers here make 85% of their revenue between Memorial Day and the weekend after Labor Day. The summer staff for these places are largely drawn from the local high school and college kids that are home for the summer.

    Like many who are still drawing paychecks, we are ordering takeout twice a week from the eateries that haven't shut down completely. But that's a drop in the bucket to what they will lose if we are still locked down in June.

    Our music festival in September brings in 5000 people from out of town for three days to benefit our local schools' music programs. Its the biggest weekend of the year for one restaurant that has a stage in the back. I really wonder if they will be able to pull something together this year given the chaotic situation. This is prime time for people buying tickets and booking acts.

    There's a lot of desperation in a lot of people's eyes here.

    At the same time, the chain grocery store 20 miles away offers online ordering and remote pickup. They are hiring like crazy to stock shelves and pick orders. Hopefully some of the unemployed waitstaff and cooks can pick up some work there. But it still sucks for our town.

    This. I know anecdotally that shit is already hitting the fan with people in pinches. Check in with folks. I predict behavioral health will be as slammed as other medical health. We are weeks ahead of folks in terms of infection, etc., and I'm already seeing very glaring signs. It's beyond spooky. Everyone is like a very wound up string, and we all know what happens when you pluck it.

    I told Montanaskier yesterday that since he's a homeschool 3rd grade teacher now, he should just allow his kid to skip all the grades and he would be free to do whatever he wants. He is a smart kid though.

I still have some business and work from home anyways, so that feels normal. Been listening to a lot of music (Within Temptation playing now) and reading a bunch again, which is kind of cool. The weather is awesome, so sitting in the yard, doing yard work, reading, having lunch and talking to Mrs L2S is nice. Lots of walks with the dogs, etc. Bummer all our favorite restaurants are closed, except for 2 with take out, but really, I worry more about the people we love there than the inability to go out. No more surfing, really sucks and forgitabout skiing
    All in all, it could be way fuckin worse for us and I just hope everyone else makes it through this with minimal financial damage.

    I’m ok. Unsettled, but nothing like my wife.

    She came home from work, literally stripped naked in the driveway, and jumped into the hot tub for a bromine disinfection.

    That would be a super hot Saturday night a month ago.

    These days, I’m hesitant to give her a hug.

    We have plenty of threads and posts recognizing our fortune and praising front line workers. But just because some have it worse doesn't mean we all aren't suffering loss, and grieving for those losses, some trivial and some not so trivial. I'm losing my fucking mind, and knowing that I'm one of the super lucky ones at the moment helps but doesn't help.


    This thread is for grieving our own losses, and that's ok.

    No. I can go bankrupt.

    But my wife is going to get this. And I hope she doesn’t leave two motherless children.

    Her colleague spent 25 minutes today trying to intubate a frothing, spewing, bloody, clogged lung covid patient. In an n95 mask. He finally got the airway.
    Then he stripped naked to take a hot shower, as did the assisting tech.

    This shit is nasty. And yes, cops and emt workers have exposure. But wtf. Intubating someone with gurgle gargling lungs spitting and spewing a bloody virus mixture in your face is fucking next level nasty.

    And yet, our local hospital gave PAPR respirators to the drive up testing bullshit so all you snowflakes can get nasal swabbed to find out if you have it, after a five day delay. And once you know, what does it matter. Distance. Shelter in place fucktard.

    Save the full garb goggle ppe and PAPR respirators for the full on frontline workers.

    And don’t get “tested”
    Fuck that shit. If you have trouble breathing, go to the ER.
    If you feel sick, stay home stay hydrated, take Tylenol, not Advil

    Yeah it sucks. Wife lost her shit last night. Only day 2 of lockdown. I planted 16 Hostas today. I hate gardening but am going to plant more tomorrow.
    Oh, and I got furloughed this week. Lost 50% of my income.
    But at least we don’t have locusts.

    On the flip side, I wonder how many families and friends will continue to embrace the quality time they have now and extend it past quarantine. Things like family walks, bike rides, dinners are all now happening when before they weren’t...wonder if they will continue.

    It’s sucks you guys are losing your minds being cooped up, I get it, but there are going to be people with real issues showing up in this thread in the next month. Not seeing your favorite band this summer or not being able to bike is gonna seem like a quaint 1% problem.

    Truth. That's part of what I'm grieving, because I can see the future and it's bad, but I just don't know how bad.

    The chain of shit that has happened to me since early October would take long paragraphs to detail. I've been pretty badly hurt, then very sick, then quite badly hurt again, and then I had a hip replacement. Finally I rallied from the hip pretty much and now I've been locked down for coronavirus for 2 solid weeks. 15 days actually. Except for a brief trip to Austin in January (which is when I got really sick, with symptoms very much like coronavirus, but it was probably just a flu), I've been here in this house pretty much 24/7. Well with a day in the hospital for the hip.

    I've basically been in the house since October. It's a nice house. My whole family and the dogs are here and there's plenty to eat. But man am I sick of it. Not very big problems in the scale of things but these walls are closing in, man.

    God forbid somebody post something on the internet that seems silly later. I for one would never do that.
