I am dying to take the kids to a playground. They are dying to GO to a playground.
Unfortunately, there are no playgrounds open yet. Interestingly, they are open one county to the north (Palm Beach), but I am not quite desperate enough to drive there.
The case loads in this state have sort of stagnated at ~2-3K/day, with ~200 daily within our county. This is not 0, but it is certainly progress from ~2 months ago when the rates were 5-8x that. I feel like going to an outdoor playground (+ masks for the big kids & lots of hand sanitizer) would be reasonable.
(Plus it doesn’t seem to make sense that I could theoretically take them to Target, Flamingo Gardens, various restaurants, freaking MyGym and DISNEY WORLD — but not a playground. RIGHT?!)
Anyway, I’m off with both kids today and in lieu of the playground I suppose we will do our usual neighborhood walk + pool. Grateful that we still have these options.
And in other news, the world lost an amazing human last night.
I’ve heard people say that 2020 can’t get much worse but I’m not sure that’s true . . .
