Right now my petty reason to be upset about COVID-19 is because I was very excited to start my MA (online so that hasn't been changed by COVID-19) and go to coffee shops and study the evening away in anonymous solitude. But that novelty has been taken away and an escape door to peace and quiet has been shut.
(To be fair, cafes are open in my city, I just think it's irresponsible to spend prolonged amounts of time in public if it's not needed. While I have not had any symptoms I don't want to put others at risk if I am asymptomatic. And besides, while I DO wear a mask when in public, I would not love wearing it for longer than needed. So at home studying it is)

I would really love to buy some new clothes but I feel I need to try them on before I actually buy them. I do not want to guess and buy something that does not fit or look good. I have lost a significant number of pounds (over 50 lbs) and have no idea what size will fit. Stores I have been in will not allow me to try them on. I do not want to take them back. What a hassle and I am not sure them would allow returns anyway.

My petty reason is that I used to love grocery shopping, and now I hate it and I hate all my fellow shoppers 😂. Someone is always standing in my way or fondling the produce or drifting down the middle of the aisle in a daze or going through the checkout line with their mask pulled down, hoping the poor checkout girl calls them on it so they can go off on how their rights are being violated.
I made these masks and that made me feel better 😂

On the one hand, it doesn't matter that everything's closed because my boyfriend is having severe PTSD and doesn't want to leave the house. So I can't get mad at him for not going to the symphony with me. On the other hand, I'd like to DO SOMETHING on occasion besides go to the grocery store once a week.

I borrowed "Joy of Cooking: All About Pasta & Noodles" from the library and asked my OH for requests. One was stuffed manicotti. Well, apparently there is a shortage. Couldn't find jumbo pasta shells at the first store either, but did find them at the second. Saw crazy high prices for these on Amazon and Walmart.
This article is from May but apparently some pasta shortages is still a thing. As with Coca Cola, etc., manufacturers are focusing on their top sellers. (We haven't seen caffeine-free regular Coke since last spring, so he is making due with regular.)https://slate.com/business/2020/05/pasta-shortage-coronavirus-why.html
I can't remember the last time I made or had stuffed shells. These were delish! (I actually morphed the recipe from my big JOC and the one from the box because these were simpler than the one in the library book.)
