Someone asked me the other day if it seemed like August to me and I had to think about it. Does it seem like August to you? Since time has slowed down for me, I’m not sure what day or month it feels like. It’s just another day and that’s the way I’ve been thinking about time lately….day by day versus month by month. Each of us is processing what is going on in our world and country differently based on their job, their family, and their life experience. I honor and respect each and every one of you and realize that how ever you are dealing with all of this, we are all doing the best we can.
As a Chiropractic office, we are still following the same safety procedures that we implemented since we reopened in April (with the addition of the UV Sanitizing Wand (see last e-mail newsletter). We have and will not let up on these precautions. They are working and we care too much about each and every one of you and your loved ones and we want to continue to be able to help you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for following all our guidelines and cancelling if you have any symptoms. We appreciate and respect your decision more than you know! This takes all of us doing what we can to slow/ stop the spread.
A couple weeks ago the Colorado Chiropractic Association let us know that we are now allowed to have 50 people in our offices at a time as long as there are 6 feet between everyone. Yes….. I had to re-read the part about having 50 people in an office five times because I couldn’t believe it. As you know, our small office couldn’t hold 50 people on a good day, so you don’t have to worry about that! There must be some offices with that kind of square footage. I’m glad our office is quaint so we can better control social distancing.
I know this Fall will look a lot different for many families due to many schools having a hybrid model or going all on-line. I’m thankful that both our boys are in college so I don’t have to figure out what to do with younger kids with school and working. Our oldest son Drew is still trying to decide if he wants to take engineering classes on-line at CSU. If he doesn’t end up attending, he has decided to just work for a semester. Our younger son Trevor is heading back to Grand Junction and staring his 2nd year at Colorado Mesa University, studying graphic design. He had his Covid test on Tuesday (already got a negative result back!), since all students returning to campus have to test negative before living on campus. We understand how taxing these decisions are for everyone and hope that you have clarity in making these difficult decisions for your kiddos. Remember to take time for yourself to recharge and think about what is best for everyone!
