We. Are. Going to die. Of. Something.
Please don’t bury us while we are still alive. Pandemic or not, we still have some living to do.
I am writing this because, the one complaint from my cohorts and older seniors is that their kids won’t stop nagging them. While we get that our kids are concerned, we can’t stay under house arrest for ever. That will kill us even sooner.
My kids have given up for the most part. But I am sure that it drives them crazy that we still socialize and that their Dad is still going to work. Well they think that he should have retired after he had a stroke over a year ago. Now that WOULD kill him.
Of course we do have to act with prudence and common sense. Wear masks. Social distance etc. etc. .
it is hard to realize that it is possible that we could die without seeing our wonderful children and grandchildren again.
But it is a real possibility especially since my daughter and her family live in Ireland. Travel to and from Ireland is banned indefinitely.
Hopefully we will be able to travel to Boston this summer to visit our son and his family if Boston opens up by then.
Maybe if people can actually get vaccinated we can return to some kind of normalcy. Its not looking to good though. My favorite deacon and I are over 65 and in a high risk group. We have been trying for over a week to schedule an appointment. But no luck. Oh and there is no way to contact an actual human being to get answers or help.
But hey pharmaceutical sales reps. have gotten them. Sales people. Sigh.
