Who knows what the “right” answer is?

I am a rule follower! It is important to me to do what I want, but within guidelines set out for me.

You tell me to stay home, then I will stay home. You start opening up places with precautionary measures set into place, I will give it a try.

I have only gone grocery shopping at one place for the last 4 weeks. A place where everyone is masked and I watch an employee clean the cart before I take it. Before that, I was getting my groceries delivered with porch drop off.

We have gone to the zoo 3 times since they opened back up. Requiring masks to walk around. Perhaps, unnecessary, but since we don’t really know I am happy to oblige.

Yesterday we went to the city pool that just opened this week. Requiring reservations, all chairs 6ft apart and masks required as you check-in and go to common areas. I was anxious, but my children were excited, so we decided to give it a try.

Families stayed in clumps. No one moved their chairs from the tape marking indicating where 6ft apart was. Everyone that came in wore a mask until they got to the area their family claimed for their 2 hour block. We did it. We felt safe and felt like those around us were adhering to the rules put into place.

I don’t know what the “right” thing to do is. I am trying my best to stay safe, follow the rules and give my children a little bit of a normal summer.
