  1. Congrats on the promotion!!! Hope you feel better now.
  2. Very understandable rage. Shit has to change.
  3. Useful info: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc2004973?
  4. If you're looking for something you can do to help, there's also the Folding@Home project: https://foldingathome.org/2020/03/15/coronavirus-what-were-doing-and-how-you-can-help-in-simple-terms/ It takes processing and graphics power, and will likely hit your power bill, so please be aware of that.
  5. I always have some level of spare and long-term food on hand. I have multiple food allergies and in an emergency, I would probably not be able to eat anything handed out. I'm stocked for two weeks on normal stuff now, longer for bulk staples, and have my smallish long term stash as well. It's mostly only intended to cover a few days for evacuation or a rough power outage at home. Grocery stores are remaining open here, and many farms are offering delivery service on fresh veg and fruit, dairy, and meat. Dry and canned staples can also be ordered from Amazon in NA at least. Well.ca in Canada is also shipping grocery staples. Walmart delivers grocery items in many places. Check and see what is available locally. There are also a lot of Facebook mutual aid groups forming and arranging deliveries for those at higher risk of complications. A number of stores are also restricting the first hour for seniors and those at higher risk so they can shop in relative safety.

    Have been bad. i was doing well, until I wasn't. Food is good, apartment is immaculate. Seriously, who asks to do a home inspection for a potential building purchase during a fucking pandemic? I offered to do a video tour for them instead as I am down with the latest office cold. It was accepted. I have more seeds! Planting, soon. I was doing well with workouts. mentioned it to someone who had been asking about that, and promptly fell off doing them. Tomorrow. Cleaning all afternoon ate all of my energy today and I feel more sick than yesterday now. Mostly doing ok with this whole pandemic thing, but it's pushing a lot of my anxiety buttons and I have retreated into reading old comfortable things and new slice of life things to calm my brain down. Super worried about all of the people with health conditions and seniors.
  7. Supposedly, at least 5 times daily for minimum 20 seconds each, lots of friction. But I am not a health professional and don't know shit. So.

    Got kettlebell in tonight, but was otherwise utterly useless. In good foot news: the nails managed grow over the end of both toes instead of further into it. It's still way too wide but that's something. Made excellent food last night. This was needed. Lunch was so boring I was a bit depressed. Food is better than that.
  9. Late Happy Birthday to you!!! *hugs*

    I got one at the office Christmas party, somewhat oddly. I love it!! It's one of these. It currently has 2 tomato plants blooming all over the place, 3 happily producing basil plants, 2 wild strawberry plants (one of which started to develop blossoms this morning!), and 2 lettuce cups just started. They do need to be manually pollinated with a little pant brush since pollinators aren't in my apartment. That's fine. One each of the tomato and strawberry cups failed so I replaced them with lettuce. I have no real use for lettuce, but the pods came with it. Ehhh. From all reports, I can move some of the plants out to separate pots later so I may use it as an incubator. The herb is doing really well. Will get a pic after work maybe.

    Mixed day, I got a lot done but did not get to kettlebell. It's late and I could theoretically do it but I need to sleep soon. Got distracted by a few emergencies today. I regret nothing but I also should have managed my time better. I will try and get to KB tomorrow after work. Cally's blood sugar was perfect today. 5.1. She is a very good kitty who even forgave me fairly soon after, with the aid of treat bribery. The garden plans now have a spreadsheet, courtesy of Mark. It's very in character The space garden has the first forming tomato!!! Super excited about that. I've manually pollinated it with a paint brush. Hopefully that's enough. Ate good food this week Too many sweets still Only 2 KB workouts, but that's one more than last week. Slowed down on apartment cleaning. Got the dusting and lots of dishes though. Basic maintenance stuff is handled. My knit cowl is almost finished. @Kishi - got that meat replacement you mentioned. It is also wheat and soy free so is safe! The ground "beef" is comparably priced to Beyond Meat, but the burger pair is oddly $2 more for the same mass. There is now a market stall for mushrooms. This means that I can get all my root veg, really good fresh mushrooms, and baked goods from a GF bakery each weekend at the market. Micro-greens from a local organic place and free-range eggs from a friend's mom. I stocked up on safe lentils from an online source. Feeling pretty good about food choices (other than sweets) right now. Enriched chocolate oat milk is pretty awesome and now means I can have chocolate milk again. There weren't any local brands that were for certain safe. Want to try this next: That said, replacement cheese options are fucking awful. I suspect cheese is not leaving my diet. We started playing a Pathfinder game and it's lots of fun so far. I'm playing a Dryad (Half elf/Arboreal) fey-type sorcerer. Good stuff.
  13. Just be careful, you go too low on calories sometimes. Make sure you still feel good and safe.

    So far, snow A bunch more of it yesterday. They apparently don't allow booking plots until April. We're in the border of zone 4b/5a. We're going to start some indoor stuff in advance though. I had some fairly light plans but Mark would like to plant All The Things, which is cool. Going to run it past Heidi (for those of you who would remember her) for advice on companion planting and fertilizer(s). We will have 3 4'x8' plots, each bounded by wood. Apparently minimally mauled by wildlife last year. He's had plots here for several years running. I'm just joining in. The plan is: green beans - he likes them beets sugar snap peas - grew quite well last year and we both love them carrots broccoli brussel sprouts cucumbers squash - Sweet dumpling (my fav) - I will get them started early in peat pots. green onions cherry tomatoes - I have some in the space garden that we may just transplant out there spinach - also in a tray in my apartment garlic chives, cilantro, oregano - maybe just at our respective places though yellow/white/red onions - Maybe? green/yellow/red peppers - these did not grow last year for either of us but maybe try again flowers - we both have some seeds so why not? Between us we have the seeds for most of these.

    Kettlebell tonight. A bit earlier this time. I had planned on getting it as soon as i got home but a small kitty missed me and needed to snuggle on my shoulder for a good long while. Who am I to say no to that? Stretching 4 sets: 10 squats 10 Halos 20 swings 10 ea rows Foam roller Not much else the last few days. Doing generally better on sweets. Oh! Mark and I have been garden plotting by email and visit. We're planning on getting seedlings started next week or so. We have most of the supplier we need but a few things need to be picked up.
  16. These people are correct^^^^^^ You are firmly not a terrible person and deserve to be safe and happy.

    Plans are in early stages but I will! Just don't expect anything too complicated. There will be squash! Me too, thanks! Thanks. She is very much missed. I keep expecting to see her. I keep forgetting to scan those docs. Soon. Got off my ass and did kettlebell this evening. Apartment is almost back up to standards. Sweets have been a little too heavy. I sleep now.
  18. You are best parents *hugs to all of you if you're comfy with it*
  19. Good care on your knee. Sorry to hear that for Dumbledore.

    I kinda like burpees *shrugs* Also, I only have 2 modes: sloth and EVERYTHING. I've been in sloth for a few years now. Glad to have you following *hugs* But *after* my feet are fixed I'm considering an update on that year in burpees challenge. 2020 over 5 weeks is 58/day. That's pretty doable. Also anniversary appropriate, though my feet will probably not be fixed this challenge. It's been a long time and I'm really happy about it. Not starting days feeling drained is pretty awesome. Today: Stretching The closest thing to a treat was a Daiya Duet non-dairy yogurt with crunchy seeds and chocolate chips. Still sugary but a solid pass. Kitchen is now sorted except the recycling! That must wait until the ice sheet of death falls. I am not spending any more time than I absolutely have to out there until that shit is gone. The foot situation: possibly gross in places The asthma recs from the clinic: Frequent dusting - reminder is set for twice/week wash my curtains - next weekend Wash bedding regularly - this generally happens but was due - sorted Get a dust cover for my mattress and pillows Try milder cleaners in my apartment Try to discourage my cat from sleeping on the bed - iffy, and we do know that I am not allergic to cats Keep windows closed during higher pollen times of year Pick up and air purifier for my bedroom - not recommended but seems in theme.
