There is so much uncertainty right now. Yesterday evening was stressful, Governor Newsom issued a state wide "stay at home" order. I received this news through the San Diego Emergency notification system via my cellphone. I was out driving when this was issued. The streets were nearly empty except for some cars driving. I panic and drive to the office to pick up my frozen Asian food that I had left a day prior in the employee refrigerator since my home refrigerator was full in preparations for a possible mandatory quarantine. I didn't think I could survive the quarantine without my Asian food. Now that I think about it sounds, it is so stupid, my priorities are so wrong, but in my defense I was near the office, so why not. I took my Asian food and drove home.
The company I work for is considered and "essential," job therefore I was able to go to work despite the order. Many others are not so fortunate and they risk loosing their jobs. Many will not be able to pay their bills and feed their family. Without people going out and living their normal lives it will be hard for even the "essential" jobs to stay open. We are all hoping this health care crisis is over soon however the state and local officials believe this will last several months. Its hard to keep positive when there is so much fear and panic.
This weekend I want a distraction. I don't want to think about COVID-19, especially the "what if" questions. This weekend I want to just plan for future trips. Soon the borders will close in the US so travel is out of the questions. I plan on researching new places, keep updating the website and hoping for the best. I hope you all are safe and stay healthy.
