A week ago Sunday, I decided a flush toilet is a priority so I drove back to Chateauguay. Quebec had police at the border with NO masks. I stopped and was asked to roll down my window so I put on my mask and did so and explained why I was going to Chateauguay. To see mon homme and get car serviced. Of course, I cannot get car serviced nor am I going anywhere. An excursion to obtain groceries last week was a two hour ordeal. It was all easy and well organized, It was only when I was safely home that the stress hit me - for two days. I am planning to have them delivered next time - in a couple weeks or so.

I have only left the house to walk around the yard - when it has not been cold or raining. R worked two days in the city but not near any humans. I am not sure which of us is more stressed by this. I have only managed bare essentials: meals, dishes, laundry. AND watering the 70 house plants! It is nice to see the bulbs, planted last fall, coming up! And other things poking through.

Just talked to my son in PA. Does not seem to be getting things done. Put him on calendar for Thurs to check in. Yeah, he is 57 but these are tough times!
