HERE-HERE well said- a good teacher is a gift!

Default Don't feel sorry for me, but I have always worked from home and still can.

The one bad part of always working from home is that my spouse now delivers lunch and ice water to my home office so I don't get to take a break and stroll around the house during the day.
Thank god for having a considerate spouse.
Sometimes I think she needs a trip to the drive up Bealls window just to keep her mood in check.

Hunkering down is a yearly practice for the elderly in Main and other winter snow bound northan states. It is called "Cabin Fever" it can be detrimental to psychological health. Nothing new.

Glad your not going to be going without! Your post just begs the question, how many rolls come in in the 1 pkg?!?!?! 8? 12? 18? 24? Or 36? !!!

After inside cleaning is done take a walk around the neighborhood. Each day walk a little farther. By the time this virus is over you be walking 5-8 miles per day. Great way to stay healthy.

If after less than 10 of isolation they are seeking counsel, they already had issues.

I have been going through serious withdrawals from my lap swimming addiction. I hope I don't wake up my wife in the middle of the night trying to swim backstroke in bed.

sitting and setting
effect and affect
their and there
your and you're
Morris and Morse
Sumpter and Sumter
