QOD: What do you miss most due to COVID? (Thanks, @BARBIEE52, for inspiration)

Friday, January 22, 2021


1. Attending Mass in person and receiving Holy Communion. {Livestream is good, but not the same! But NOTHING can take away my Faith in My Jesus!} emoticon

2. Hugging and being with my family and friends. {Zoom helps, but most of my loved ones don't do Zoom.}

3 .Walking together with my best friend. {Calling each other on the phone while walking helps.}

4. Eating out with dh inside our favorite Chinese Restaurant. {Thank goodness for curbside delivery of takeout from them!}

5. Being able to just go into a store and browse! {I need to try clothes on before I buy them.} emoticon

    What an uplifting blog! I needed this today.

    Keep on keeping on. We have to just keep trekking onward. I like the way you are keeping contact with people. Hm, Chinese food. I have not had that in a long time!

    emoticon I miss seeing my friends at the church, Curves and the pool, Thank goodness for our family group on Whatsapp and Facebook + daily texts with my younger sister who lives in Houston. i miss walking in Macy's and Nordstroms in the Mall seeing the beautiful clothes, shoes and purses. It is sad to see how many stores have closed - and feel nervous when I would like to eat something at the food-court! emoticon My husband and I are hoping to get our vaccines soon

    Excellent blog! I miss hugging my friends as well. And going into a clothing store to browse is something I need to do. I've worn through several pairs of pants and I'm running low. But I can't just order online because I need to try them on. Also I miss being able to breathe. I have asthma and I'm a dance instructor, so I already have to work harder than others to be able to breathe, then add that I'm also dancing and talking while wearing a face shield. And I have problems with acne in the areas where my face shield and my mask touch my face. Lighter acne problems all over since my whole face is covered in the face shield. I also miss being able to give hands on corrections to my students. I have a lot of really young students this year (the oldest is 10) and the younger children definitely don't understand me explaining it to them. They need to feel it.

    I miss the hugs and kisses, seeing my family and friends, being mask-less, and the freedom to come and go as I want.
    Thanks for posting.

    HUGS and the freedom of not wearing a mask. BUT it's necessary right now. So, I'll do it.

    Thank you Robyn!! 💖💖
    I miss the hugs I give to people, and the ones I get., going out with friends for coffee, or other, and enjoying their company, being together. I miss browsing & shopping at my favorite thrift stores, just seeing people, smiling, saying hi, running into people I know. 😊 🤗 👨🏼‍🤝‍👨🏼 💖

    I miss the feeling of freedom---to go about my day here and there and not think twice. I miss seeing lots of activity and the hub bub at the gym---but now looks like a ghost town. And when people pass by----there is no eye contact---no smiles---and i do hope we are not calling this the "new norm." .... Making the most of it and staying busy w/ hubby and our pets.

    I miss being able to show up and volunteer around town, and I miss our thrift shop, which can't open due to danger to volunteers and shoppers. I miss mine and Corky's park "adventures;" so many people aren't able to just be polite to other people regarding distancing and masks. Ah, well! We wouldn't be in the parks as often anyway, due to getting some wintry days here during winter, for which I'm grateful as I love Winter best! emoticon

    I'm still running on my rebounder, playing with Corky in the backyard-I'm so very thankful for our large yard!-and giving business to our favorite grocery and restaurants, thanks to pickup and carryout. I'm also getting more making and reading done.

    I so happy to hear from my good friend Trekpurrson! emoticon emoticon emoticon
