Hello my friends...it's been a rough few months.

Hello to all of my wonderful friends!
Thank you SO much for checking up on me. I've just been in a quandry lately. Very worried about my small retail business right now.
I had reopened the gallery on June 10th and had really good foot traffic but really pitiful sales.
Each week after got worse on foot traffic and NO SALES!
Now with the spiking numbers I have decided to reclose the gallery. It's ridicoulous to sit there every day with lookie loos stopping in for entertainment with absolutely NO SALES. It's just not worth it to me to expose myself for the situation as it is right now.
Luckily my landlord has been understanding and I did recieve a small business grant that will help me immensely. But I am frankly very worried about the virus rearing it's ugly head once again. It's also debiliatiing to have mentally worked myself up to reopen the shop and then realize I have to close it down again some 15 days later. It's all just mentally crippling to me.
I hope you all are staying home when you can and staying safe. The pickets and protests have no doubt added fuel to the spread of the virus and why people can't realize this I'll never know.
I do know how frustrated everyone is at this time and I do agree that we all have the right to express our frustrations when no one hears us without doing so...but in all honesty why are you puttng yourself and your entire family at risk doing this when the virus is surging.
My little Mac cat has been my constant companion. I have done some social distancing with a few of my grief group friends if for anything just to preserve my sanity.
Mac loves to poke his little paws out of his cat condo...he sees me with my feet up in the LaZBoy recliner and I think he mimics it in his perch...he is a funny little dude...that he is!
Please stay healthy and keep the faith...it's a crazee world out there right now my friends!
