Feeling blue in these scarey times - thank heavens for 365 to keep me sane! by lyndamcg

Feeling blue in these scarey times - thank heavens for 365 to keep me sane!

I've had my poor daughter-in-law crying on the phone this morning. My granddaughter started school last year and loves it, she can't understand why she can't go due to lockdown. Plus her daughter from previous marriage is in her last year at junior school and is going to miss a few trips and end of school party so she is upset and may not see her friends for a while. It is so hard for them, plus her job has been stopped until the foreseeable future, luckily my son's job seems ok at the moment. I feel so sorry for them - life for us as retirees is pretty much the same day to day, but I shall so miss seeing family and friends. Strange times ahead - stay safe everybody x
This too shall pass... what we need now is messages of hope for each other (You are right - the 365 Group is a very caring & thoughtful group) Stay safe & healthy

Ohh, your comment reminded me of our daughter whom we had to keep at home when SARS raged in South Asia ; she was1 out of 2 of the Class who didn’t go Singapore for the final outing of her primary school. She was so disappointed. Tough for a Parent to make those decisions ... I hope you were able to comfort your daughter a bit ...take care and I like your shot

Lovely shot and nice blue. The world sure is a difficult place at the moment. My job is safe for the moment but as a nurse, I’m not sure I really want to be going to work

@kjarn yes, it must be hard for you when we are told to isolate ourselves but you have to carry on! I can only say a big thank you to all the nurses, doctors, all services and drivers who are keeping going in these dark days ❤

lovely focus, an interesting shot. Our day 1 of isolation has just whizzed past. Only 13 to go!

Lovely beach shot. We've had to cancel our trip to Florida in May, so no beaches for me for a long time it sounds like.
Sorry to read about your granddaughters and daughter-in-law. It would be a lot for a mom to cope with.
I appreciate your comment on my post that I shouldn't be going to work. I feel like I should go, so it helps me to have others tell me to stay home. Take care.

Stressful times..

It is going to be tough for a while but if we take these measures to heart and keep them, I think we will see some good results. It's going to be different for a few months but once the virus is under control and not spreading, life will slowly return to order. It's hard on the children- who ever heard of being out of school like summer vacation and not being able to do anything or play with your friends. My oldest granddaughter says, "It's BORING!!" (o; Yes, thank goodness for 365- it's a sanity preserver indeed!
