getting the royal guilt trip from family

Friday, May 22, 2020

good Morning - grandkids facetiming, sending letters how they miss us and they want to see us face to face. I know my granddaughter was schooled by her mom. she would not have send those things as she wrote them.. Daughter is really stressed and wants grand parents to give her reprieve. I know the messages - hidden meanings. I send cards to them with little tricks, I am on Facebook Kids with them. GD -soon to be three - cried in the Facetime. I send her cards with stickers. I am getting virus fatigue. They are talking about a second wave in the south. this is no surprise with me. We are opening up too fast and people are not wearing masks much anymore. DH & I still are. My DD does not -nor her husband or kids. So I figure they could be carriers. My son and his family probably do not wear masks. I said that I am very sorry, but this virus is beyond our control. Grandpa and I have to stay safe. We told them we just postponed a trip of our lifetime b/c of this virus. We are having COVID-19 Fatigue as is everyone!!!! have a good day!! emoticon

    emoticon I hear you.

    Many who do not consider themselves to be at risk don't seem to take the threat seriously. No masks, no social distancing, happy go lucky. I guess your family is in this group. You are wise to stick to your selves.

    I guess you could offer to meet at an outdoor location, wear your masks and maintain distance, but if they won't agree to those terms, oh well. So sad for them. Remind them you want to see them for years to come, not just a few hours now.

    Peace and Care

    **SIGH** Yes, definitely Covid Fatigue. That's gonna last a long time. AND, unfortunately, the longer people refuse to abide by common sense orders, the longer we'll have to deal w/this! UGH

    Good luck!

    We socialize with NO ONE in our home. We meet up with family, but only outside. We also take this very seriously. Sounds like they put you in a very tough situation.
