There are still shortages in the supermarket and there shouldn't be. I couldn't find napkins except for an awful brand called Select that turns into a clump of shit if you wet it. Luckily, I don't need paper towels or TP right now or I would be out of luck.

I get mostly all of my meat from a butcher that uses smaller suppliers, so I haven't had a problem with that.

I really needed clothes and shoes. They finally opened up the stores, but there wasn't any inventory there. They're selling whats left of last years stuff. Even online, I couldn't find a lot of summer clothes. I found half a bathing suit at Macys when they finally opened. A top with no bottom. No shorts or sleeveless tee shirts. No popular shoe sizes. What the heck was I waiting for?

Here's a bonus for shopping at Macy's in-store. They now claim to have greater air circulation. Well, the bathing suit fitting room looked like it was previously a warehouse area. It had high, open ceilings and basic fitting room enclosures (not floor to ceiling) and when I went there it was pretty empty except for me and the other person trying on women's bathing suits that had size 12 sneakers and muscular calves. Lord have mercy! I'm never going there again.

I wanted to buy new patio chairs this year. Just basic Adirondack chairs that were not too expensive. Gone, everywhere. Even on line except for really expensive ones.

I don't see our old normal coming back anytime soon. Life has become so bizarre lately that staying at home all the time is the best option.
