My dh has been home all day. If this becomes a regular thing, I might kill myself. My house is not big enough for all of us. He takes the whole living room, the TV, AND the computer and wants everyone to leave him alone. That leaves the 80sqft office or bedrooms for me and the kids. I don't want to do this. I think baby rates won't be the increase with quarantine, it'll definitely be divorce rates. Lol.

In response to a confession. They will be, at least for urgent care. I checked with my pet store yesterday after the shelter in place announcement, and they are considered essential services, and are still open this month. Best wishes for you and your doggy.

Sheltering in place and just felt a huge lump on my dog's neck. I don't think the vet is going to be open

In response to a confession. People take their stress out on others at times like this. Our schools are closed. The city is officially shut down. We are scrambling to develop online resources. I had a parent say today, "There must have been a plan for this! Isn't there some kind of binder, for forward planning? Isn't there a protocol?" Hard to keep my voice calm, but I told him, "I don't think the district has a current binder for global pandemics." This is unprecedented. I asked him, "How was your day?" He told me how unbelievably stressful. I said, "Okay, your child's teacher was working from home, is probably also a parent, the daycare is shut down, and they're trying to figure out how to completely redo how they teach. They also have report cards due in two days." I don't think he got it. :(

We are officially ordered to shelter in place. We are only allowed to leave our houses for essential reasons. Luckily, walks are still OK (as long as you stay at least 6 feet away from others humans). I don't know if at the end of the month I'm going to have a sparkling clean house, or have played a lot of video games!

I'm a scheduler at a dermatology office and you wouldn't believe the ridiculous calls we've been getting about this virus. A guy called yesterday, requesting statistical data on the coronavirus. I told him I don't have that info, but if he could tell me the name of his doctor here, I could get him to the nurses to discuss his own personal risk. Nope. He wanted "hard stats about this thing." I'm a fucking scheduler. I don't have that. He became belligerent and kept me on the phone for several minutes before I finally hung up on him. Fucking loonies. Use the Google machine that lives inside your phone, asshole!!!

I’m 63 years old, diabetic, and have a mild heart disease. I wash my hands a lot (always have), have mild shortness of breath (thanks, AFib!), and consider myself low risk because I’m not around other people. Today my shortness of breath is worse, I’ve got a cough, and a splitting headache. No fever though. I’d like to share with DH, but he’ll insist on going to the ER. Self-isolating and self-monitoring (quietly).

In response to a confession. I made the post below about my stockpile. There's a reason for it. My first husband was a controlling jerk. Our combined income was 150K, but he wouldn't let me stock our pantry. He only gave me enough money every Monday to buy enough groceries for the week. Well, one Sunday, there was a blizzard forecast for that night. He refused to give me the grocery money so I could go shopping that day to prepare. He said we'd be fine making it through the snow the next day in his 4x4. I said it wouldn't help if the stores were closed, but he wouldn't budge. So yeah, all of the stores were closed and we drove around for an hour before we found a small convenience store open. They were out of most everything. Result - we survived on canned chili and water for days. So now I stockpile. A few yrs ago we had a huge storm that brought down trees and power lines. Town was shut down and no electricity for a week. We were fine in our house :)

OMG!! I was at Walmart and as I was getting back to my car, the car two spots down backed out and hit the car next to me. He got out, looked at the huge gash he made on her bumper, and drove off. I tried to get the plate number but he sped off. Luckily, the two ladies parked near me also saw it and one of them remembered his plates and we left a note for the owner of the car. People SUCK!!!! I hope that asshole gets what's coming to him.

When I was a kid, we ran out of TP a lot. Mostly because my parents were space cadets when it came to having enough of anything. We had a stock of "butt wipes" that were old washclothes that we had to get wet and use to wipe. Then we washed and reused them. As soon as I was able to buy my own TP, I keep like 10 rolls on hand at all times to make sure we don't run out. I bought some last week and I'm glad I did because I have about 2 weeks worth right now. I swear, why the hell do some people have to ruin it for so many others??
