    Stressed!!! How are you doing?

    Hubbie is still going to work everyday (NYC) and the kids are going bonkers with the lockdown but very grateful he has a good job and that we are all healthy.
    My husband’s side of the family, who all live in the city, have a bunch of members testing positive for COVID and 2 have lost their lives...
    Scary times.... its just so sad and tragic with so many people losing their jobs etc.
    It is so hard to watch the news these days.

    I'm doing ok. I work in NYC too but we are working from home. What does your husband do for a living? For me, food shopping is stressful. I go early in the morning so there are not a lot of people in the store. I never liked a lot of people anyway but this is different.

    Ugh, I know!! All the cleaning too post shopping, etc. is so stressful.
    Now they are finding out young people aged 30-40’s who have no symptoms or very, very mild symptoms are stroking out. That is very alarming.
    My husband is in upper management for a large food company. I’m married to a grocery king pin!! Lol. He doesn’t make contact with customers since he’s in upper management but he does have to make close contact with staff. It’s just unavoidable sometimes- We’ve had a couple scares with his staff and customers falling ill, etc but so far we have been okay.
    From what he tells me his stores have a cleaning crew that clean high contact areas every half an hour and all the stores are closing early to sanitize and restock. They’re using hospital grade cleaning agents and requiring everyone to wear masks, gloves, etc. so that *should* help but it is still scary.

    hugs- I was so sorry to read about JC. We lost our little one last October too.... she fell ill.... really ill. RIP Coco.

    I'm so sorry about your dog. I held my boy until he passed. I'm still having a hard time with it.
    I'm cleaning everything more than I normally would and I'm a clean freak! Stay safe!! And it's good to see you on the forum!

    Thank you and thank you. Awww, my goodness, that’s heartbreaking. Yea, it’s really hard. I still can’t look at photos of her and it’s been over a year since her passing. I’m sure being under lockdown doesn’t help either.
    I don’t mind the social distancing aspect so much. I’ve been social distancing for years, lol.... I’m like Roxy, biting off faces and crap- hahaha But it’s the not being able to go out that’s harder. I’m just thankful I have a large enough yard to keep the kiddos sane I can’t imagine what it’s like for people who live close to one another like apts.
    I tried to go for a stroll and everyone’s out and there’s a gathering at the parks (that’s shutdown) etc. I’m surrounded by fools I tell you.

    I'm in Ariz. and we are hanging in there. We are just getting into our 100 degree weather this week. I bought these Wholesome Hides to help keep the dogs busy. Teddy gets more amped up after he chews on one of these for 30 min!

    He have "stay at home' orders in place but masks are not required yet. I wear one because i always have worn one because I'm immunocompromised. We haven't been to the store since 3/1. We order our groceries and then go and pick them up.

    Lol, that’s awesome!!!
    Do you work in physical therapy or something?

    I tried to use my weight bar yesterday outside while the dog gets to enjoy the nice weather we had. Well, this crazy brown dog decides to bite the other end of the bar while I’m squatting with it. Knocked me down and And gets bonked in the head with this heavy bar. Sigh- I should have known this would happen with him!! :|:|:|[-( Then he has the audacity to look at me like I hurt him on purpose.

    Ah, very cool.
    You should totally build yourself a monster P.C. and make them pay for it. Get yourself a GeForce RTX 2080 because you need it for “work” :D

    They gave us all laptops and company phones. With the money they gave us we are supposed to buy a printer/scanner, which I did. I also bought a nice desk for my working area.

    I’ve been shopping for a desk too but I hate that I have to build it... myself.... lol I’m thinking if they ship from warehouse I have to build myself?

    I don’t even know if I’m going back to work anytime soon to be honest with all the cutbacks they are making. I had met up with the head doctor and had a casual lunch to negotiate my contract and then the lockdown happened.... last I heard he had to let go of a bunch of people in our department so.... I may not be going back? Maybe?

    did you hear about all the animals being killed off and veggies thrown away. Such a shame
