    Today I waved at my best friend while she was on her balcony and I was in my car. I had to take an extra clonazepam just to get through shopping at Walmart. I got what I needed and ran the hell out.

    I really do hate going to the store now. I love going outside when it is nice out but the store? Blah. I'm thinking of just ordering groceries online now but I hate the waiting and the price increase. Bah.

    My mom made me a thick cloth mask to wear when I go to the store. It's not N95 but it's a good droplet mask. So maybe that will help.

    One of my patients had symptoms, got the test done. Not a good day, lots of workers were upset. Luckily the patient was negative. What a whirlwind.

    I used to say for years "Damn, we need a plague!" to myself...when stuck in traffic, when in a line that was taking way too long, when my favorite yogurt was all bought up, just silly things like that. I feel kind of bad now. I got what I (jokingly) asked for and I HATE IT.

    I went grocery shopping this morning. No line to get in when I got there. They adjusted the social distancing template they'd had set up last week. They even had wipes this time to wipe down the carts. They didn't have any last week.

    I only got what I needed to last one week. I won't hoard. The only things I bought ahead were toilet paper (ordered from Amazon, I have a 2 month supply) and razors (have a two week supply). I was happy to be able to buy meat for a pot roast and some ground beef. Along with the chicken I bought last weekend I have a week's worth of fresh meat.

    The groceries I just purchased are on what I am calling my "quarantine shelf". I read an article published by a medical organization (I linked it here previously) that said if the virus is on a surface it's only effectively infectious for 2 hours, then it gradually gets less powerful to where it can't infect anyone. So my groceries stay on that shelf in my pantry for 24 hours. Anything I have to use today will sit for a minimum of 4 hours and I will clean them before using them. Pot roast with carrots and potatoes and brown gravy is on the menu for tonight!

    Hope you are all hanging in there.

    I do the same with quarrantining my groceries lol. I am only buying a bit extra of each item I use a lot of -and I mean a bit -because I was told a two week supply is fine and I typically buy less than a one week supply. And since we're only 3 people it's not much to begin with.

    I'm doing ok. Yesterday was a struggle - 11 year old having meltdowns -combo of acclimating to online learning, too much HW thrown at him, being inside and knowing why - both will be better this coming week. One of our cousins was exposed by her husband -unwittingly -last week so now they're under quarrantine :-( My power walk at dawn helping a lot and noticed they now cordoned off the exercise equipment on the jogging path -which I do not use anyway.

    My mother lives in a hot spot. She is not wearing a mask but everyone else is, she's limiting going outside/shopping and her building staff is constantly scrubbing the building. Same in our building. We are not in a hot spot but we have a number of cases. :-(
    I had my first zoom staff meeting. My camera showed: me, head only and our ceiling with a stuck Wacky Hands on it from years ago.

    Because I'm an old bag *grinz* I get to go into the grocery store one hour before it opens to the general public and they only let a few go in and then we wait until they come out before they let the next in line go in so it's feeling much safer now. I wear a mask and I wipe down my cart with a Lysol wipe. There is tape in place where we can keep social distancing and the cashier is constantly spraying down the conveyor belt... I have a quarantined pantry as well and I make sure to wipe down any cans before opening... I've always done that though.

    Doing okay over here.

    Past few days have been rough, no point calling them anything else. Am finding an unexpectedly tough consequence of all this to be a rift in my closest friendship, where this situation is just exposing some differences—in life stations, in value systems—that are amounting to some added psychic stress from a source that is normally a cushion. In that, I'm sure, I am far from alone—and in that there is always comfort.

    Still, stings are also stings, and it does suck to feel so detached from someone who is generally a pillar.
