  1. CG, that’s so scary. I’ve seen quite a few people who have run out of basics and are calling anyone that has the stuff they need hoarders. I find it really insulting that someone calls us hoarders because we made responsible choices...but I have stayed out of the conversations because I’m not putting a target on my head.
  2. https://www.businessinsider.com/homemade-mask-using-hydro-knit-shop-towel-filters-better-2020-4 The people in this article did some tests on what the best filtering materials are...this brand of blue shop towels rated the highest. I ran to Harbor Freight this morning to get some and they were limiting it to one package because they had a huge run on them this morning. I have a friend who is making the homemade ones with pockets and I’ll cut the shop towels for liners. That way they can be washed.
  3. My son just called and told me a man he roomed with several years ago passed yesterday from the virus. He was only 32....no major health issues but my son says he used to smoke a lot of weed. As of Friday Costco is only allowing 2 people per card into their warehouses.
  4. Amber, papers for what? To get back into Florida?
  5. Hope you gave a wonderful day!
  6. I haven’t actually turned anything official in yet...because I was thinking the same thing.
  7. Im a little tired. All this online meeting thing is a new thing to me...and it hurts my brain. I’m having to learn how to create a Webex meeting and a Google classroom...none of which I will use when I retire mid June. We planned for a few hours what we’ll be sending home for the first two weeks (thankful that there’s only 9 weeks of school left). And we’re meeting Monday to figure out how to create videos. But....I’m grateful I have income coming in.
  8. If she is a public school teacher she is likely getting paid.
  9. Nearly half of all patients at one Kaiser hospital believed to have coronavirus https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-03-25/suspected-or-confirmed-coronavirus-patients-fill-up
  10. We have lambs ears...although I hope we never get to that point.
  11. Welcome back SueC! Yep...MrsSurvival has always been the best thing out there...
  12. Today I’m actually going back to work (no kids...but will be social distancing in the classroom with my aide). We are now considered essential workers. Yesterday we had several hours of online meetings to figure out how to create some sort of educational system at the preschool level...we decided on creating a weekly packet of activities to be picked up by families when they come get their lunches the district is providing and teachers are going to do a circle on video (songs, stories, etc) for the children to view at home. This will be interesting...I have no problem doing all of this in front of 3 year olds...but for some reason the thought of doing this in front of a video camera....well just not thrilled.
  13. I let the animal shelter know that I’m not going in to volunteer for a while. Feels too risky for me to be going in even with all of the precautions they are taking. They are trying to get as many animals into foster homes with the thought that at some point volunteers won’t be able to go in at all. I’m waiting to hear if they need me to foster a dog. Stopped at Costco to pickup a food saver...and there was a line! Never seen that at my Costco before....and they had two Sheriff’s trucks outside. I decided to go the Target right by Costco to see if I could get one there cuz I did not want to stand in a line just to get inside. Well....Target was sold out of food savers...none to be found. Unbelievable. So I went back to Costco and got myself in line. Turned out be a good thing. While I waited my 20 minutes a manager was walking up and down the line reassuring people and said there was a second truck that showed up with....guess what?! Toilet paper and paper towels! Lol! Serendipity..... I decided to some because oldest son hasn’t been able to stock up on anything because as a Lyft driver his income has dropped to almost zero in the past two weeks. He has applied to a bunches of stores who are looking for overnight stockers, is delivering for places like grub hub and also applied for a special driver task force Lyft is creating to give drivers a way to make money. i got an email from my district that they’ve decided we need to figure out how to create a way for our preschoolers to continue their education....so tomorrow we’ll have an online meeting to figure out how to get materials into the homes. The idea being teachers will create individual packets for the week for families to come pick up at the school site. And doing videos where we are reading stories/doing songs for the kids to view. This should be interesting.....
