    My sleep has been crap too. And exactly what you said Batya, yes! I'm trying to do the same as you all, as otherwise it just feeds into my anxiety.

    It must be double challenging while trying to be a calm support for children. I'm thinking of you guys.
    We all have it hard in different ways. Our son is holding his own for the most part, just wailed about not being allowed to hunt for ladybugs on the slide at a playground (don't ask.....)- we're not overly scared about getting sick (and I am a bit relieved that today is two weeks since I was on a domestic flight and we all feel fine). It is hard navigating this new world of pseudo home schooling. Thanks so much for your thoughtful insights!

    Why can't he go to the park? Our health professionals have said that outdoors is fine as long as there isn't a crowd.

    I get they are probably feeling terrible financial stress, but I don't think they should be encouraging and/or asking us to patronize their businesses right now. They should probably just close down until this crisis is more under control. And hopefully their landlords will give them some kind of break.
    No ,they shouldn’t be encouraging people to congregate.

    I went for another long walk with hubby. We saw a fox who was staring at us intently and we scuttled on home.

    We've been doing walks in our gorgeous park down the block -with appropriate social distancing (very easy to do) and yet.... so many posts urging everyone to never go out other than for food. We are not on lockdown where we are, at all. Just a social distancing thing. For many people getting outside is near essential for mental health (including for my mom who is totally typical/normal/no signs ever of any depression etc and she knows she needs her fresh air, "power walk" at 85 -good for her! -with social distancing. Tired of the judgment. Will continue doing what I know is safe and healthy for our family.

    (holy sh*t, I went to go grab the link and its ALREADY sold out, it couldn't have been more than 15 minutes...people are quick...)

    So, there are no cases in my city at the moment.

    And the mail person had a parcel for me. She placed the pick up notice in the mailbox but I had seen her and went to let her know that I was home if she wanted to drop it off.

    Honestly, you'd think I was poisonous. She literally ran away, yelling "that they were told not to get close to people" and "she's sorry but she can't give me my parcel".

    Grrrr, now I have to go down to the depot and try to get it.

    What? If she’s handling the mail she’s already exposing herself, she can drop the parcel down in your hands without even touching you.

    Sorry that stinks

    I was standing there dumbfounded. I mean, I know it's good to be careful right now...in fact it's imperative. But I do feel she went OTT.

    I was thinking to myself.."Is this real life?" It's like a bad movie.

    Thought for the day... What's worse knowing you could get very sick or the Armageddon and panic leading to more panic? Every day more bad news. Price gouging, hoarding, empty stores.
