    May 30, 2020
    Well I'm retired. The spa is opening back up on Monday and I won't be there. I am really happy right now. I don't think I wanted to go back even before the pandemic occurred. This just made the choice easier. I went back into the spa just to pick up a few things from…

    Well I spoke with the owner, she said they are hoping to reopen on June 1st or possibly the 15th depending on the state requirement as to the curve of new cases going down.  So I have at least another 2 weeks to go. She went over all the new rules and quite frankly, I…

    Later today, the owner of the spa I work at is going to call everyone about the new reopening date. It might be June 15th now. She said we all have to go over new procedures before she reopens. Basically about the new pandemic rules as we reopen slowly. I'm not looking forward to it.…

  • Still here, not going nowhere
    April 25, 2020
    The state of Illinois just extended their stay at home order for the month of May, so I am not going anywhere for another month except what's absolutely necessary. And not much is really necessary except a trip to get groceries or take out food. So I'll be on unemployment for at least another mon...

    Within the last few days, I got my first unemployment payment and then today I got my stimulus check from the government so that's good. I will be able to pay my bills next month. After that, I am not sure. I know one thing for sure is that I am not going back to…
