    If this stay at home order has taught me anything, it's that I am working a cleaning service into our budget when this is all over...LOL. Jon got called to come in to work today - he rarely works weekends, maybe twice a year - so it's another day alone in the house. I did a deep clean on our lower level, and did some of the windows that seem to get neglected. I came close to pulling out the carpet shampooer but if I do that today, what kind of fun can I have next weekend...Hahaha! Please read that as sarcastically as possible.

    We have been doing the sheet pan meals lately too - Rachel Ray's steak fajitas are a good one.

    I don't think I need a grocery trip this week, but it feels so odd not to go. I know that's part of the problem though, people going to the store even when they don't need to.

    When I was watching the TV before bed last night they mentioned 94% of our nations people are on a shutdown right now...6 states left. Not sure what those other 6 states are waiting for.

    Kind of sad; 3 weeks ago we met a woman who was a friend of a friend and we all hung out together for a few hours. I learned today that the woman’s mother died from the coronavirus and was buried Thursday. The woman couldn’t go to the burial as she also has been diagnosed with the virus as was her daughter.

    It seems to be hitting closer and closer to home.

    No one I know has been diagnosed yet but I also know it's inevitable that it will eventually happen. How sad that we have to live with that knowledge. I'm thankful every day that my parents both passed away several years ago, both in a nursing home They were my best friends and I don't think I could have handled not being able to visit them, hold their hands as they passed (which I was able to do) or give them the memorial services they both deserved. It was hard enough as it was since i'm an only child. Enough of that! It didn't happen and everyone I know is still okay. Sorry, it got to me there for a moment. Back to mindless TV and perhaps a nice cup of tea. :-)

    David had to transport a known case from a hospital to a nursing home last night. He came home, undressed in the laundry room and washed everything. We washed down his water bottle and keys and id with clorox wipes. He said from now on that is what he will do every day. When he decide to be an EMT my concern was working in bad weather and seeing awful things. When he got the job as a transporter, my concern was his hours and bad weather. Never thought I'd have to worry about a pandemic.

    are you kidding!!!?!!
    a covid patient was discharged from a hospital to a nursing home??
    omg

    I hope your son is wearing tons of protective gear.
    I know it is great to have a gainfully employed child......can he rethink his career options?
    (I am NOT wild about my kid dismantling and refitting nuclear reactors on submarines)
    Why can our boys not do something like........... being CPAs? Attorneys? Rodeo Bull riders? Lion tamers? SOMETHING LESS SCARY for the moms.

    Yes, he was appropriately gowned, face masked, gloves, etc. He washed everything and took a shower as soon as he got home. Just praying he and his partner, because they work together, had little exposure.

    He wants to work on EMT emergency squad, but they all require experience, and transport is part of it. He was talking about getting into a hospital because some use EMTs in their ERs. He also talks about becoming a paramedic. Ugh.
