Not telling husband I am volunteering at food shelf
It's very admirable of you to volunteer. I hope you have all the safety gears. As for your husband, I'm sure he's worried about you, maybe that's the reason why he doesn't want you to go out. Have you had a discussion with him about volunteering?

No, I haven't talked to him about it. He went to work and I went to volunteer at the food shelf until about 2:30pm. So he doesn't know. I figured that he's eventually going to get exposed to the virus. Then he would be quarantined so I would be quarantined too. So it doesn't make sense to me that he's going to work and getting exposed to whatever at work. Then I am supposed to be safe at home. So I figure I might as well be out and about for now.
I bought my own mask and they gave us gloves. There's a hand washing station by the front door. So that's the first thing we did was wash hands and put on gloves. Then we sign in for our shift. I like being with a team of people trying to fill the need for food. That's more real to be than staying home worrying about the virus. We can't live in fear. Its not sustainable.
