Going on a cruise

Will need at least a year or 2 to do again:
Travel

Just not sure about anymore:
Movies/Plays/Concerts

Can't wait to:
Take grandson to fun places like the zoo and science center

Your turn.

I think buffets will be a thing if the past. Salad bars too. I would never go on a cruise anyway...floating Petri dish! I will wait a good long time to go to a restaurant or shop. We can eat at home and stay safe for awhile...travel? Probably waiting at least a year. We had about four different trips planned this year but all were cancelled.

Will never do again:
I am hoping that there wonít be anything that I love to do that I would never do again ever.


Would've never done anyway but now am vehemently opposed to:
Riding on rides at amusement parks.

Will need at least a year or 2 to do again:
Not sure.



Just not sure about anymore:
Trying on clothes at clothing stores. I am a little scared about going back to school in the fall right now.


Can't wait to:
Unfortunately the things that are my livelihood are the things many have said they will wait a long time to do again. Those would be act in plays, play music gigs, and attend jazz festivals.

Will never do again: Shake hands with a stranger


Would've never done anyway but now am vehemently opposed to: go back to work (retired)


Will need at least a year or 2 to do again: Try a tomato. I hate raw tomatoes. I think I should like them so I try a nibble every few years and immediately get disgusted once again. I can't think of anything that I normally do being out of my reach for a year or two.


Just not sure about anymore: I shouldn't have bought three rhododendron bushes. I was overzealous. One would have done it.


Can't wait to: Have the driver's license office open back up again so I can get my dl situation straightened out. Right now, I don't have a valid license and so am stuck having other people drive me everywhere.

Will never do again:
Probably won't be eating at a buffet/salad bar for quite a while.

Would've never done anyway but now am vehemently opposed to:
Ocean cruises.

Will need at least a year or 2 to do again:
Airplane travel. We canceled a trip to Hawaii this summer. I'm really hoping it's only a year before we feel safe. My 84 year old dad wants to take another vacation, probably to Europe, with us. I know this isn't something we have years and years to put off.

Just not sure about anymore:

Putting so much time and effort into work at the expense of the people, pets, and hobbies that I love. I hope to remember how much I've enjoyed my hobbies and slowed down lifestyle when we do return to work.
While DH and I will take our time returning to events/activities that involve large crowds we won't avoid them forever.

Can't wait to:
See my family and students again. Go on a road trip to the central coast with DH and our pup.

Will never do again: Eat at a buffet, I didn't eat at one much before anyway.

Travel back to Italy or anywhere outside the US.


Just not sure about anymore:
Concerts, movie theaters, and large social gathers in close places.


Can't wait to:
Have my whole family together again and feel safe to be around them all.
My dad has COPD so we have all been staying away from him and my mom.

Will never do again: Honestly I can't think of anything that I'll say never again. Lots of things I'll be more careful about

Would've never done anyway but now am vehemently opposed to:
I'm with timeforbed, going back to work. I feel bad for the teachers who are having to navigate this time.

I need at least a year or 2 to do again:
Travel to another country--not because I'm afraid of getting sick, I'm afraid of another shutdown and being stuck.

Can't wait to: Travel again and see my grandchildren!

Will never do again:
tease my husband for his handwashing compulsion and disaster preparedness

I can't think of anything I would never have done that I am now more opposed to because of this

Will need at least a year or 2 to do again:
Trust prepared food, especially fast and fast casual food. I already had little confidence in the hygiene of food service employees but I had more confidence in my immune system's abilities before this.

Just not sure about anymore:
Cruises, was already skeptical and now more so

Can't wait to:
stop thinking about pandemics and economic disasters and distance learning

Iím never sure about other peopleís precautions and attention to detail.

Can't wait to:

Can't wait to: Go to church, libraries, have family reunions, volunteer at school, and see tutoring clients face to face.

Never do again: Buffets. Haven't eaten at one in years (Vegas) but never again.



Would've done but now opposed to: Cruising. Nope. I'm not worried about germs but more about being quarantined in my room if something happens - I'd worry about meds for DH and my dog at home.


A year or 2 to try again: Sporting event (MLB). And that's a big maybe.



Just not sure about anymore: Shaking hands. I've never liked to shake hands.



Can't wait to: See my DGD and DS's, go to church, game night with friends over.

Will never do again: Restaurant buffets; still deciding about potlucks.


Would've never done anyway but now am vehemently opposed to: cruises


Will need at least a year or 2 to do again: go to the movies


Just not sure about anymore: I'm not sure what the protocol will be with shaking hands and hugging. I will miss hugging my friends. I will miss holding hands with students. I will need to learn a new greeting ritual.


Can't wait to:
~ teach in person again
~ get a haircut and eyebrows waxed and pedicure
~ travel
~ go out to eat

Will never do again:
Eat at a buffet or salad bar, especially ones at school (which probably won't be happening anymore anyway). I was never a fan of them and now definitely not!


Would've never done anyway but now am vehemently opposed to:
Hmm, not sure. DH would never have done a cruise. I have always wanted to cruise to Alaska. But this has cured me of that. I'll find a different way to see Alaska.


Will need at least a year or 2 to do again:
get on a plane. We have/had a trip to Iceland booked for August. We are in the process of postponing, which we can do without penalty, or canceling, we are seeing if we can do without penalty. It we can cancel, we'll wait a good two years.


Just not sure about anymore:
I don't know, maybe eating out. But I think that's more of a "I'll wait a while" thing.


Can't wait to:
* teach in person
* go to a park and hang with friends
* run with my group again

Will never do again: IDK if I could ever go on another cruise again after this. I frequently think about those people being trapped in those little state rooms for weeks on end. That sure takes the fun out of it.

Would've never done anyway but now am vehemently opposed to: Nothing here for me

Will need at least a year or 2 to do again: Plan a vacation- not because I'm afraid of the virus, but because I'm afraid it would get cancelled and I don't want to spend the money not knowing what's coming from the economic fallout

Can't wait to:
-Eat at restaurants with friends
-Go to movies
-Teach in my classroom
-Go back to our morning coffee routine with my teammates
-Visit family in another state
