Reflecting and a plead to help my Mom
She does have homework, and the school provided computers as well. I can only pray that her life events she was looking forward to, will just be delayed. I guess she can still practice hair-do's on me.
Her job interview has been delayed, as that salon has now closed.
Colleges are canceling commencements and sending students home (all told to leave campus).
I've sent text messages trying to get in touch with my older 3 kids, but two haven't answered.
They have not enforced a lockdown, but keep talking about it. Why not just do it now and prevent more spread?
Although I've debated to "close" my farm store, I will be restocking. I can't take an order, not knowing if my nearest post office will close (they are already down to 2 hours a weekday). To be honest, we are doing self quarantine.
I hope you are all okay through all of this right now. I am sure with all of our self-sufficiency skills we are well educated on surviving through it all. I bet people who made fun of me and my weeds and such, are not laughing now.
By the way, my Mom is trying to order elderberry syrup online and can't find it. Even MRH is sold out. If you know of a resource, please comment, so I can order it and have it sent to her home direct. I can't even find dried elderberries for her that are not price hiked right now. Please and thank you!
