Went to bed right after sunset last night. Must have slept for over 10 hours. I had some groceries and medications delivered yesterday. I have some more groceries coming on Friday morning. So far I haven’t had a problem getting food. Cleaning supplies, especially Lysol spray is a different story.
There are now at least a few cases in my town. Don’t know much else about details. As far as I know, no one in my complex has gotten ill. I still haven’t gone out in public since mid March. I check in on my neighbors every day. I usually just call them or knock on their door and chat for a minute or two. I still lift weights. I can feel the old strength starting to come back.
Been watching an ancient history series on Netflix the last couple days. Halfway through the series right now. I think I’m going to watch The Men Who Built America this weekend. History Channel put out some pretty good series about 8 to 10 years ago.
I have my cleaner coming this afternoon. Even during a crisis, the place has to stay cleaned up. I usually just sit in my recliner just to stay out of her way. She seems to enjoy chatting while she works.
I still talk to my mom and dad every day, usually in the mornings. My brother and his wife often work from home now. A friend of mine and her husband are both working from home now in Omaha.
I saw that like six million people in the US alone have filed for unemployment. Certainly tough times for lots of families. None of my friends have had to file yet. A friend of mine in Lincoln has been having coughing and fever for a few days now. Since she works at a pharmacy she has been taking sick leave. She was wearing face masks and gloves in public weeks before it became a thing here in the US, especially as she takes public transit to work.
One of my neighbors is planning on planting a vegetable garden once the weather warms up for good. My mom has already put in a vegetable and flower garden at her house in Oklahoma City. Most homeowners I personally know are doing this.
Been kind of lazy about reading traditional books this week. I am reading a lot of online articles even though I try to avoid the news. Not much I can do besides stay home and wash my hands several times a day. Been buying groceries more often but in smaller batches. I don’t buy for two weeks at a time anymore. I have plenty of non perishables already. About all I need to buy any more is fresh meat and vegetables.
I saw that the feds approved a stimulus check for most US citizens. I don’t know if I’ll get a check. But as I’m debt free and can do alright on my disability pension, I have no clue what I’m doing with it. Won’t get much letting it sit in a savings account.
