That's going to be really cute. I do like the addition of the lack and white.
I'm with you on your dislike of wearing the masks. They are mandatory here in Illinois too and I hate trying to get through the grocery store wearing one. I can't breathe and get a panicky lightheaded feeling. Weird though--most business have a sign on the door about having to have on a mask, but the restaurants are now open and you don't need them there. This whole business is insane. Can't sing in church but no problems with rioting and looting. What a sad state of affairs we are in.
When I was making masks in mass I did both kinds--the pleated and smooth. Not sure what an Olson mask is but it was shaped to form over the nose. DD the physical therapist liked the continuous string one the best because she has it on all day, but I like the ones with elastic. I know it is available now but at one time I ran out of elastic and I sliced up some theraband that DD had given me for exercising my shoulder. I loved it! So much softer on the ears - almost like you can't even feel it behind your ears.
I had that panicky "can't breathe" feeing at first, too! But, since I had to wear them 17 hrs x 2 days a week, I got used to it and don't really think of it unless I go to drink or something...and the breakout on my chin. Now, at the new job it's 12x3, and we have to use the paper ones. I notice those more, cuz the ear loops have caused little pressure ulcers behind my ears. :(
I got new glasses a few weeks ago and until I got them adjusted they caused a sore behind my ear so I know how uncomfortable that can be. I used a 7 X 1/4 inch slice of theraband on my masks and it was so comfortable. Wonder if you could cut off the elastic and staple it to the mask?

Everyone I've supplied previously here has told me they can't use them any more (health care folks).
I've had 2 requests in the last week for cotton masks or even fabric donations from hospital personnel. I was surprised. Maybe with the surge, they are getting low.
But that is done til fall now since he went in this morning to quit
He seems a patient man. They must have stepped on his last nerve. I know he hasn't been happy lately.
Ummmm.....they did. He is patient but the last straw was several emails that went to parents before they checked with him. Finding out news from parents is NOT a good feeling.
makes me sad, but he has to do what is best for him.
i think most of his fellow workers will be shocked as they have mostly been home and out of the loop as this was the summer care program. ( they are loosing their aftercare, PE, and robotics LEGO person. Not going to be the easiest to replace at his pay....just saying.). But it’s there loose...
Prayers he finds his way. He could demand more pay if he went back to school and got a teaching certificate or something for the preschool age.
Their loss indeed!
