After a month of holidays, my husband headed back to work this morning. I would say we are back to our normal schedule, but with his twenty four/ seven shifts we do not really have a normal schedule.
It has been a nice month. We did not accomplish a lot but it was relaxing having Dan home. I spent a lot of time walking my dog, getting in shape and clearing my thoughts. It is amazing the things you think about when you are wandering the same streets and paths day after day. I plan to share some of those thoughts on my blog in the days to come.
I hope everyone has had a nice summer. With September just around the corner, our summer days will soon be gone. 😢
My husband is working a couple of nights now. When I am home, nights are rather frustrating as I try to avoid doing anything that will make sleep any harder for him than it already is. Finding ways to be quietly productive can be a little challenging but I found a few tasks to fill my day.
Of course, I got up to speed on all of the local Covid – 19 news.
We now have 176 confirmed cases in Saskatchewan. We keep our numbers down by a. Testing people we are sure will test negative. B. Not testing people we are sure will test positive. And C. Not processing tests for people in Regina
Of 176 people who have tested positive, 142 are between the ages of 20 to 64. Keeping non-essential factories/plants and construction sites running is not a problem. 🙄
Of the 176 confirmed cases in Saskatchewan, 55% are male and 65% are female. New math?
The federal government introduced a plan to pay 75% of wages for companies whose revenues are down 30% or more due to Covid-19 . Unfortunately, for companies that must stay open, revenue is not necessarily the problem. There is considerable expense involved in meeting regulations that are currently in place for any business that is still operating. For contract work, you don’t get to charge extra because your costs increase, which could be a problem for many businessed. However, our federal government has come up with a lot of financial programs to help people and companies weather this storm, so we should be grateful for the effort and hope that anyone who legitimately needs help will get it.
No idea what I will do tomorrow to keep busy. Whatever it is, I will be sure to do it quietly. 🤫
My thoughts and prayers are going out to anyone who needs them tonight. There are so many whose lives have been lost or shattered and we have so far to go. Take care out there🥀
