    I hear you Cookie!! Our numbers are great—- as in they are the same as in November before we peaked. I hope people don’t let their guard down. I don’t know what’s going on with the vaccinations but it’s so frustrating hearing about the delays. I hope September is still accurate.

    Our province is opening back up. Our daily case numbers are about 950 cases a day which is great. I know small businesses are struggling. But I am nervous about the variant and a third wave in April. Also Canada’s vaccination rate is pitiful. We are SO close.

    Are you all wearing surgical masks now?

    Wow, homemade pasta, MJ!!

    We got takeout dinner from a nicer restaurant. I got French onion soup. They put the bread and broiled cheese in a separate container from the hot soup and it was so good! We exchanged cards today.

    Yeah, I remember when skinny jeans came into style in the mid 2000s and thought it was so weird, but now I don’t really know what else to wear. I have some straight jeans too. I’m really not sure if I could ever pull off mom jeans. Also I like my side part!!

    I hope you have a strong recovery @TheLadyE.

    I know we are all pretty risk averse here. Guess that’s why I’m posting for support. I don’t want to be morally superior and judgmental. My sister is letting my mon visit today because my mom misses my niece. The numbers are down around here, about 50 new cases a day. My mom wants me to go to her place this weekend for Chinese New Year preparations. I wouldn’t say she’s using my sister as an example but when I told her I wasn’t sure about going over, she responded that she’s going over. The numbers really are way down. I just can’t wrap my head around visiting during this COVID time still. We would wear masks, but this seems “unnecessary”. Sigh.

    That would be awesome, Copa! I think we are friends on My Fitness Pal. Could I message you there?

    Dang I have not thought about getting the higher grade masks at all. Maybe I should get some too.

    @Copa, what is your job exactly? If it’s too private for forum I understand. I’m a lawyer and am curious about your law adjacent job.

    My brother in healthcare got both shots. Very grateful. Here the focus is on LTC and frontline workers which I totally get. I hope my parents will be able to get vaccine soon.

    Ugh that sucks Kate. Is your building manager helpful or are you on your own?

    I’m so sorry Copa. That sucks. I do hope your boyfriend can see his friend in person.

    Wow, that is a wake up call, Kate. A guy I went to university with posted on Facebook that last year while he was driving he had a seizure. Thankfully he didn’t hurt anyone or himself. Turned out he had a brain tumour. Due to COVID the procedures were delayed so finally they were able to remove the tumour last week.

    Oh no, I’m sorry, Kate!! I’m glad insurance will cover it but that is so disturbing especially during this time.

    I’m guessing you are in Ontario with the Boxing Day “lockdown”. I’m in Ontario too and I’m glad the numbers are coming down but we are still in the clear.

    I’m sorry. This is tough. I don’t think you can stop your in laws from seeing their kids and other grand kids. Your BIL and SIL — they are your husband’s siblings? Can he ask them to wear masks? I just couldn’t even think of eating lunch with my parents right now. Are your BIL and SIL mainly working from home? All we can do is hope. The risk is still low, compared to the States. It’s the best you can do, I think.

    @TheLadyE, I am so sorry to hear you are going through all that. You didn’t know it wasn’t going to be an outdoors performance and I imagine it would be hard to say no. Hang in there. Are there any performances opportunities online? I know it’s not the same. I have literally gained 20 lb, basically the weight I lost over two years. I am probably 10 lb over my happy weight. 20 lb down I was quite petite even for me. I’m not ready to actively lose again but I am upset about it and I try not to bother my fiancé but I talk about it a lot. Sorry to make this about me. But we are all struggling.

    @BGM, stay safe. I can’t believe the news I read about LA.

    I want to be excited tomorrow even as a Canadian. But I am scared of what might happen.

    I used foundation when my skin wasn’t great. Since I didn’t remove it all with make up remover, my skin got worse. I think it’s all personal preference! After Accutane I switched to CC cream since I felt a lot better about my skin.

    I miss lipstick! I put some on for NYE. For mask life, I use concealer and apply blush a bit higher on the cheek bone so it’ll show above the mask, heh. I also do a couple swipes of Gimme Brow.

    I did a clothes purge a couple months into the pandemic to get rid of stuff I didn’t like or didn’t fit because of my gradual weight loss over two years. Within 10 months I’ve put on the COVID-19 unfortunately (and I’m kind of a menta mess about that) but I don’t think those were clothes I liked.

    I was using It Cosmetics CC cream. I don’t think I’ve touched it since March. I still use liquid concealer. Even after coming back to the office, I haven’t used the CC cream. Would try the Elf one once I use up my It Cosmetics one some day…
