Day 84 – I never thought I would be writing this but as of Monday, June 8th Michigan is opening again! Not everything but at least the “Stay Home. Stay Safe” will be over. All the CDC guidelines still remain in place but things are moving forward!
You still cannot go to a hair salon, get your nails done, go to a gym or dance class but you can eat in a restaurant at either 25% or 50% capacity. I know that some of the restaurants around here are exploring outdoor options. Also, I saw one area that is considering closing down a street so that the restaurants can expand their outdoor seating. I thought that was a genius idea.
We as a family are still limiting our time away from home but are venturing out a bit more. My daughter went to the post office and 2 stores today to pick up graduation cards and a few other items we would like. She usually tries to stay away from stores but is finally feeling a bit more secure in going into places. Of course she wears a mask and carries hand sanitizer with her everywhere too.
We are planning on ordering out next week and heading to a park for a picnic. We are so excited. It is the little things right now that make life seem almost normal again.
Are your states open? What is the thing you are most looking forward to doing?
