We did it! We ate out at a restaurant. Our friends humored me and we sat outside on the patio. It was a chilly mid-60’s day but they knew I was having “stranger danger”. The patio was still set up for social distancing so I was comfortable removing my mask – it helps I know all 4 of us were “fully” vaccinated.
Next weekend will be another challenge – traveling to our nephew’s memorial service/scattering of ashes out of town. We will be staying in a hotel (oh no!) and eating out after the service.
I never considered myself a germaphobe before this – I sure hope this anxiety passes soon.
California still has masks required until at least June 15. That gives me a month to get used to this new normal!
