    136 Went up to get blood work done this morning which is located inside of Walmart. Decided to walk around the store and get a few things after. They actually had toilet paper (about a dozen packs left). Meats had been re-stocked so I got some of that. I keep hearing eggs are on shortage but they had plenty as did a few other stores I went to this week. Here's the funny thing. The line to wait for a self checkout register (there are about 15 of them) was 20 people deep. So I figure I'll take a chance and walk clear across the store to the garden center. I was the only one there checking out. People are lazy.

    131 Day 12: It has been twelve days in self-isolation, except for grocery shopping, a walk in the park and a friend stopping by I have been in isolation… I read a couple of books, listen to a book, watched YouTube videos, listen to “Old Time Radio” shows, I’m on Facebook too much, and I talked to friends on the phone or using FaceTime. For an introvert it is heaven.

    An 83 (4.61) today. I drove to the nearby state to buy my whiskey (2 cases of it), and while there, I drove across the road to the food store there, to see if they had any 2 liter bottles of my Sprite Zero, which they did.(I bought 10 bottles of it.) While I was in the food store, they seemed like they had plenty of things, although the toilet paper aisle was empty, as was the egg section. I picked up a case of my preferred brand of bottled water, and a pack of my brand of paper towels. When I got home, I decided to call the one pizza place that delivers to my house to see if they were open and still delivering pizzas, and they were. I'm not going to order any pizzas, as I have plenty of food in my refrigerator, I just wanted to see if they were still open and delivering pizzas, in the event that the food stores ran out of most of the food. At least I know that, if the food stores run out of food, if need be, I can still order a pizza and have it delivered to my house, so I won't starve to death.😊

    95 Our California office is affected by the shut downs. We're wondering if the same will be happening here. Only 5 of us here yesterday and so far I'm the only one here today.

    133 today, first time ever I have not lost any weight after 36 hr fasting. Must be staying at home sitting on my tushy all day instead of walking around the store. I used to take a break and go walk around the store couple times in inclement weather. Cannot do it anymore - not too often anyway. Have to go get couple things today, Its second business day about 9:15am store should not be crowded; will report if shelves stocked ot not. Last week I have not noticed much difference.

    100 Woke up at 1:30 am and felt low. Tested at 45. Drank a small soda and ate a chocolate cake thingy. By the time I got back to my bed I was sweaty, shaky and just collapsed on to it. No clue why it happened. I stopped at Walmart yesterday after work, mostly out of curiosity. All of the sandwich meat was gone. All chicken, pork....gone. Of course no TP or hand sanitizer. Oddly the juice isle was pretty empty too. The funny thing to me is there were plenty of fruits and vegetables. People buy the unhealthy stuff first. @adiantum - Interesting article. Thanks. We do have a WFH policy but it's being done pretty informally here. My home is safe and I have no concerns about that. And my company would stand behind me if anything happened. There's only been 5 cases here in the city where I work and only 1 in the county I live in. And that one person wasn't even in my county when they tested positive. That's out of 142 for the entire state, the bulk of which are 500 miles from here in the Miami area.

    I stocked up on strips early Summer & am glad I did now. I pay 60c instead of $34 but have to get a doctors referral every 6 months for them. I still have enough to last about 4 months, so I wont be visiting any doctor soon. Budgeting is the new game to play. Ive not been so wasteful with toilet paper & instead of boiling 3 eggs for breakfast I cut it back to 2. I dont want to shop in store.

    A bit of a rant. Someone posted (inevitably) the Mr. Rogers meme about looking for helpers. I had a "Larry David" moment (Curb Your Enthusiasm) because this was written for pre-schoolers to help them cope with the understandably frightening concepts they would encounter overhearing the news or people talking. I wrote my own response and posted this. It really resonated strongly. We are adults. We have understanding that children don't. We can take action. IF there weren't "helpers", this site wouldn't even exist. I applaud you all... Whenever "scary" things happen in the world, the meme of Mr. Rogers quoting "look for the helpers" is brought out to comfort us. If we all went out and acted as helpers, no one would need to look for them. Did your neighbor comment about not having soap or TP? Do you have some? Give them some. If someone you know is anxious about current events, take a little time to actively listen to them and console them as best you can. Be an unlooked for helper. EVERYONE can be a helper.

    117 We've been given the option of working from home but I came in to the office. Traffic was more like today was a holiday or something.

    7.2 Ahnanimus, stay safe, stay strong , but above all else, be really kind to yourself . The " Smartest Country " award this week goes to New Zealand..... "Anyone entering New Zealand from midnight (local time) on Sunday will be required to self-isolate for 14 days in an attempt to combat coronavirus, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announces."
