Title: Shelter in Place
Post by: gwilson31 on March 24, 2020, 01:20:28 pm
What are you doing while staying home?   Each day I am tackling a different cleaning task.  I am also doing some reading and playing games on the computer  and of course surveys.  I do have to go to the store now and then but not as often as I did.  Since I'm not going to the store so often I'm not buying needless things and not spending as much money.....so I guess that's good.

Stay safe everyone!  :rainbow:

I've been at home for 12 days. I've been slowly cleaning up my place which is my major task. I'm also planning on staging a bunch of stuff that I don't need/wear that I can donate in a month (or whenever the virus slows down).

my daily routine has not changed one iota, LOL! My husband is working from home and my kids are doing distance learning for their college. But me? I'm just trucking along doing my usual MTurk and FusionCash. I'll be glad when the whole virus thing lets up so that everybody can get back to work and school and socializing and all. I think this whole quarantine is a lot harder for other people than for me and people like me.  :peace: :heart:

I haven't seen any changes, I sit home all day anyway with nowhere to go and all day to get there

Life has changed slightly for me in that I am home more. I used to volunteer in different locations 3 days a week.Now it is grocery shopping and back home.  fortunately, it is nice enough outside to start working in my garden. I did not think I would survive be home but I am trying to stay positive.

Sounds like you are putting your time to good use.  I wish I had the energy! :(  Just the idea that we CAN"T  go out bothers me as much or more than actually staying home.

We are not under a shelter in place order.  And even if they do that you can still go to Walmart and grocery stores as well as pharmacy places like Walgreens and CVS.  I know someone local that is quarantined and she went to the drug store. I thought it meant you can not leave your house. Apparently not.  So basically the only stuff that closed is things like movie theaters, bars, and beauty salon type places. smh.  Even eating places are open you just have to use drive thru.  And here is the thing IF the person who fixes your food is coughing and breathing on your food it CAN make you sick.  Esp if they say the virus can live on cardboard for 3 days.

Pretty much same here.  I have to go to the drive thru pharmacy today and pick up my meds then go to the Wal-Mart pickup to get a small order.  I think I may have to go out in front of my community with a "will work for TP" sign LOL my rationing is still showing a dwindling supply of toilet paper.

Staying home, being somewhat bored, watching alot of my dvds, earning money online (which is probably the best thing I've done) besides working on cleaning house and playing with my lionhead rabbit. ☺
He always makes me happy!

The governor just announced SIP for our state today. Not that it makes much difference to me now, because the entertainment and food businesses were already closed. Going for a walk only takes up a few hours of the day. I wish I could volunteer somewhere, but we're supposed to stay home. UGH!

Not doing much - hoping the weather will warm up so we can do things outside.

Hasn't changed a whole lot for me.  Can't go to movies anymore and I used to go once a week at least.  Can't go to church or Bible study.  Graddaughter is home instead of at school.  That's probably the hardest things because she is in constant motion and can't stand quiet.

Based on some comments I've read, people really can't handle staying home for even a relatively short amount of time. I guess I've stayed home so much that this social distancing and staying home doesn't really bother me.

 ??? ???

If you are like me the first stop is the restroom at the store, so here's one item to keep on hand if it works!  Staying home is best but you might be out and have to go:

Itís a paper pop-up pee-funnel for ladies-on-the-go. I follow completely, until the instructions included flushing the funnel afterwards.

If itís safe to flush, Iím left wondering how well itíll hold??  LOL

A lot of people can't stay at home.  They have to work.  And there are a lot that even if they lose their job during this they will not get paid.  SO sick of people drawing the government checks screaming "shut it down" smh.  Guess they do not understand how the real world works.

I am one of the lucky few that can actually work from home, so I try to keep my work hours Monday thru Friday and the weekends i clean as much as I can.  But I am starting to feel the Cabin fever a bit.  My 3 years old granddaughter is enjoying are time at home with her, it is going to be hard for her to go back to preschool once everything gets back to normal

I was a homebody and worked from home anyway and now without church as a landmark I have no idea what day of the week it ever is. They're doing sermons on youtube now and I've gotten very spoiled with being able to go to church in my pajamas lol.

I want to clean out my house while I'm totally stuck at home but I'm so lazy! I usually just clean an area when I need to use it. Lol! Clean as you go is my cleaning region. I watch streaming movies, tv series,play video games, audio novels, read, sleep, mess with the cat, & have been spending more time working on site, surveys like FC, Inbox,SendEarnings.......

I have complicated lupus and PAH, so dh hasn't let me out of the house in 2 weeks.  Now we have a stay at home order.  I've been on the net a lot.  Watching Hulu.  Calling family.
