    What is the First Things You Want to Do When the Restrictions Are Lifted?

    I want to visit our friends, drop off all the stuff I am getting rid of to Goodwill, get my hair done, dine in a restaurant and visit our son.

    I want to be able to say, I don’t feel like cooking let’s just go out. Would love to catch up with friends in person and be able to hug them and I’m not a hugger! I’d like to go to the grocery store and not worry about disinfecting everything. I want to hang out on the beach in Aruba and play the slots in the casino. All that said, for the moment I am grateful that we are safe and healthy.

    Get my hair cut and colored, mani/pedi, go out to dinner with my friends, visit my family in Baltimore, have someone give me a good, long hug (and return it), and confirm with Manchebo and Delta that I'm going to Aruba in September. And I want to be able to watch the news when I get home from work and the first thing I see isn't the day's death toll.

    good topic!

    I want to get my nails- fingers and toes done, get a haircut,
    jump in the pool, teach my classes, go back to my part time job, get Paul the hell out of the house, and get to the eye dr!
    Then I want to get on a flight and go visit the grands!

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    Walt, I'm with you but I'm going to have to be careful.

    First, Mum is in a nursing home and they may not open right away. Also, she's 95 and has dementia. All she'll know is that my sister and I haven't visited for quite a while (the place is completely locked down to all but staff) and she's going to be mad! But it won't last, then we'll hug.

    Go visit my grandma! That is #1. I'm sure we will have back to back to back family get-togethers with different sections of family.

    I also want to be able to do a last minute weekend getaway, go crab some seafood at a restaurant on the water, meet friends for happy hour, go hit some golf balls, and leave my house freely.

    Get my entire family together...sister, brother, kids and my cousins- a family reunion. Go to our favorite local hangout- invite our close friends over for a cookout...and schedule a trip back to Aruba!
