I have found that there are many definitions of being cautious and few to none are at the level we've maintained. We haven't had anyone into the house since March and darned if he didn't bring the next door neighbor in and they went down to the basement on Sunday - and stayed longer than I felt they should have - inside and with no masks. WTH? Two days later we learn they took a grandchild to school - wearing no mask - and the school has had an infection(s). As I've said before - I've always thought that if we get Covid, it'll be here in the neighborhood - and from my DH's blind spot in his cautiousness.

Hope you are all safe and well - and may your neighbors all recover. Please keep us posted.
Oh no, Lyndy, that isn't good for him to be so careless. I keep reminding my DH about things. "Take your mask", "Did you wash your hands?" I even still wipe everything off with Clorox wipes that comes into the house. I have even wiped and sprayed boxes before we bring them in. I know some people would call me names but I don't care. I had to take the car to get the oil changed on Monday and even though they told me they sprayed sanitizer in it I still wiped down everything inside that they would have touched with wipes before I got in the car. I carry wipes in my purse and use them liberally when I have to go out. I am bound and determined to do my best to avoid it. Especially since it might be several months before they even get to us for the vaccine, even with our ages. I don't really know how our neighbors got it. All I know is that a woman who played mahjongg with them at their house also tested positive. They also have a daughter and family in Smyrna and I don't know if they visited them or not. You just never know where it will crop up.

I totally agree, rothbear. He's actually quite cautious, with this being what I consider a dangerous blind spot. We haven't had anyone in the house since the lockdown, we get our groceries by curbside pick-up or delivery, which I then wipe down, and we wipe down anything that comes into the house. Like you, he's good about washing hands, wearing a mask and we are focused with what shopping we do - nothing recreational. We haven't had a haircut or been to a restaurant since March - we look like aging hippies.

It's interesting how differently people treat this - one of my sisters tells me she's ultra cautious, yet she gets her hair cut/colored every 6 weeks, has continued to get regular mani-pedi's, her "eyebrows done" (whatever that is), has gatherings at her house, goes out to eat, which I consider a risky lifestyle. It's all a matter of the odds of whether you're around someone infectious at a point when you may have let down your guard. No family gatherings this year for us!!

The prospect of a vaccine whenever it gets to where our group can get one is pretty exciting, isn't it? I'm very curious how we'll all know when we're eligible to get one and hope that information will be communicated at some point in the future. Until then, hoping all are safe and remain well!!
