    If I have to look at it all the time, it isn't extreme. In any case, I'd rather air my grievances than let them bottle up.

    See I used to do something similar to that, but it is his dresser. About a year ago, I had enough of it, and swiped everything off and into the drawers and dumped the rest on his side of the bed. Now he listens when I tell him to clean it up once every 2 weeks or so.

    1. He did. I was similar at his age, but times were different and we didn't expect children to be perfectly obedient pansies back then. 2. Last snow was seen around May 10th, I think. 3. At first I liked the concept and I still don't have a general scientific issue with it in certain contexts. Yes, I think we should mask up when dealing with the elderly or immuno-compromised, and we should do it during flu season too. But wearing them all the time, when covid is proving to be less of a problem than the flu season this year in our area, is annoying. Between clinicals and work, I am supposed to wear one 100 hours or so a week, plus anytime I go out. I just don't think that is pragmatic. So, PPE theater is what we've all resorted to.

    Squirrels are tree rats, do with them what you'd do with rats.

    As a topper to my already stressful week, middle kid, aka the Troll, got permanently kicked out of daycare for being difficult.

    I might or might not have gone to a bonfire with my coworkers and people from the neighborhood the other day. Masks were not worn. Kids in town are back playing with each other. No one in the upper Midwest is wearing them at this point, myself included. Cases continue to mount, hospitalizations are pretty much non-existent still. I took part in an ancestry study about Covid - I guess I'm not the only one who thinks there is a genetic component, which would be why NY and Italy got hit so hard.

    Well, fudge. I'm sorry man. Hopefully everyone was wearing masks.

    Of elementary school? Is that a thing? If so, good for her!

    I don't know how you're feeling about it, but I'm tired of it all. We do temp checks every 12 hours at work and then for all my clinicals. Goodness forbid you pop a fever for something not Covid related. A few people are wearing masks in this part of the country and I was a couple of weeks ago, but the vast majority aren't. I'm sure if I didn't get it in Europe that me and all my coworkers have already had it. I've been talking to a few people about it, but it seems to not really be impacting the population here the same way. Almost all the deaths have been nursing home related. Even with a huge outbreak in the general population, the number hospitalized is near zero.

    Ouch, that sucks! Is Colorado back "open"? North Dakota has been open for a week or two, not that it ever shut all the way down. Had dinner out a week or two ago, went to the mall, and my gym is opening back up on Monday.

    Minnesota weather preferred right now. Main job has us wearing gowns on every call and for our several hour long transfers. They also make us wear at least 2 layers of shirts as part of our uniform. I'm sweating when it is is 30°F without the gown. Hope she's doing ok.

    I noticed New Yorkers are like this. Midwesterners? Not so much, or so I've observed. They are happy to just sit. I wish I had all that time off. I've been working my contract average of 42 hours a week, picking up extra shifts, working prn somewhere else, and doing all day long zoom classes. #dead I pulled a 4.0 though. 🤘 Now, I've just got clinicals for the rest of the year. I get to spend next week in the cath lab. Today is the day I thought about taking my winter tires off because it was finally going to be above freezing at night.

    Pandemics supersede OSHA, so, no. The CDC is rather a moving target of PPE recommendations as well. Your in-laws sound terrible, I'm sorry you are dealing with them on top of all of this.

    Covid cases are finally exploding here. one employer wants me to wear the same surgical mask for 4 days, but the N95 only for 5 patients and then toss. The other wants a surgical mask per day, but the N95 is apparently infinitely reusable after hitting it with UV. Ok, I guess. Both seem to think that a brown paper bag somehow quarantines the thing and makes it germ free for the next use.

    Ah, yes, they said it happened during the immunizations, so it must have been that device rather than just plain old reusing the needles. I can't believe it didn't occur to anyone that it wasn't sanitary.
