It's Christmas day here in Texas... and the Pandemic is still raising it's ugly head... keeping us from gathering with our families for the holidays (or anytime). So far we have all been very careful and safe for the most part, wearing our masks, washing our hands, and staying away from gatherings.
BUT... both our daughter-in-laws are nurses and have been working non-stop, exhausted, and bringing home awful stories of what they deal with on a day to day basis. They warn us of how serious this Covid virus can be. We get stories of a young mother with Covid who may not make it, her newborn baby in intensive care... and she may never see him. One father and his daughter died the same day... with the wife in intensive care. Watching people die struggling for breath must be beyond awful. I am so proud of both my daughter-in-laws for their courage and spirit. But I worry about them too... as they are up front with this horrible virus.
This week one of them tested positive for the virus. Now son and grand daughter (8) will be tested ASAP and all will isolate for the next 2 weeks. 2020 seems like it won't leave us unscathed.
One of grand daughter's gifts from us was the pink hoodie with attached doggie mask... appropriate for this Christmas morning.
There's not a lot else to say. It's been fairly quiet around here. We opened a few gifts, sat by the fire-place, talked or texted with the kids and grandkids, watched one of the new(?) Jurassic Park movies, and put a roast in the oven for later. DH and I got a few cat puzzles and I got the cutest pair of cat pj's. Here's a pic!
So, I'm going to leave you today with my hopes
that you are all having a good (if not merry) Christmas
with those with whom you feel safe...
I want you to know how much I appreciate
all my blogger friends
