I love Marigolds, they're just happy little flowers.....
We survived! We went back to work this week, the only difference was we opened at 50% of our normal patient load. Everyone must wear a mask ~ I was surprised that we had two patients that came in without one. There's always two in a crowd? I don't think that's right, lol. We have also asked everyone to call when they are in the parking lot, but we had a bit of an issue with the patients that come at 8am. We don't turn off our voice mail until after our morning meeting, and generally don't get the messages for 5 or even 10 minutes, because we have patients walking in. One man became quite irritated with us because we weren't answering the phone at 7:50 when he arrived. He didn't have a mask either. He was a pill the whole time he was in the office, and we were super happy when he was done!
Otherwise we adjusted to all this new stuff, and managed to get through the week. The hygienists are adjusting to being without their beloved cavitron (the water jet that helps clean off tartar and stuff). But they have to wear so much gear that the office feels like an ice box. They are hot and uncomfortable. I have to wear a mask (just one, where they are wearing two) and I chafe at that. I don't know how they do it.
Considering how many people have lost their jobs because the business shut down I am feeling blessed to have work. Even though I sometimes complain about it....:-)
My hollyhocks continue to bloom....
As you can see, it is huge this year!
Snapped a pic of some flowers while on my walk yesterday....lots of wild flowers blooming right now!
And with all those wild flowers and trees my allergies are in over-drive. So I'm walking inside today. I woke up this morning with itchy itchy eyes.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
