Goodwill hasn't imposed any limits yet. I'm well stocked but I'm gonna buy every damn VCR and tape deck they have! It makes as much sense as hoarding toilet paper! :olol:

I’m off all next week on paid leave, and may be off the following week as well unless I volunteer to work with a $3 an hour bonus. I decided that all this news has depressed me to the point where I’m going on a media blackout for a few days to decompress. I’m turning off my phone, doing some projects and kicking back with some video games. So I may be gone for a while starting Monday.

I know what you mean, I had to be late to work one day because I made the mistake of watching the news while eating breakfast.

I had a pickup order at the grocery store today, the big things that they didn't have were bone-in chicken pieces and turkey breast. I've got some chicken breast and thighs in the freezer, so that's alright. The stock citywide seems a little uneven though, because a friend says Walmart is out of ice cream while the other grocery chain has all flavors and brands available.

We had a funeral for my grandpa on Tuesday. That was weird, since they limited the attendance just to immediate family. Otherwise it was a good memorial service and we shared some good memories. Grandma is being kept under lock and key, no one gets in or out at the retirement home.

I've been working from home for a week but our offices aren't closed. I checked in yesterday over the lunch hour and things were slow, about half of the staff wasn't there for various reasons. My girlfriend starts working from home on Monday, so hopefully this 2-bedroom apartment isn't too small for the two of us. :olol:
