Goals & Gratitude 3/22/20

Sunday, March 22, 2020

Well this week has been full of firsts. My first quarantine, my first time ordering groceries online, and my first time ordering from a restaurant online.

I am working from home full time now, and my home office is all set up. Thank God that is going well. On Friday night I was debating whether I should go to the grocery store on Saturday morning, and I decided to try to order groceries online instead so that I'm not around too many people. It was an interesting experience. It took me making two logins and it took me a while to figure out how to do it. I ordered mostly produce and a few dry goods, but not too much stuff. Unfortunately, it won't be delivered until Tuesday as they are so backed up. But that is fine as I still have plenty of food in the fridge. I have soup, green beans with potatoes, and stuff for bean tostadas to get me through Monday and Tuesday. I also don't know how much of my food will actually get delivered to me as I don't know what the store looks like right now. I am expecting to get much less than I actually ordered.

But tonight, the prospect of having yet more lentil soup was very unappealing, so I decided to order and pickup Panera. So I did my order online, and I *thought* I paid for it. I drove over there and they couldn't find my order. I waited, the servers looked, but nothing. But I ordered again and they had my order out to me in about 5 minutes. I picked up everything early and am going to go have my sandwich and soup when I finish this.

I was dying to get some air today, so I decided to drive over to the park. People were there but it wasn't overly busy. I stuck to the walking path, which usually doesn't have a lot of people on it, and I took the long way around people when I needed to. I read online yesterday that social distancing may be to this generation what my generation had with stop, drop, and roll. I have to agree...

Fitness Goals for the Week:
1) Walk either indoors or outdoors 5 days this week.
2) Do strength training 3 time this week for 10 minutes.

Today I'm Grateful For...
1) That it was sunny this morning, though it's raining now.
2) That I am still healthy.
3) That I have a yummy dinner waiting for me.

    I am used to staying home and avoiding people in the winter. The more you get out the more you expose yourself to the disease.

    You've got a great handle on this. You are doing everything right. If everybody does what you are doing, we will kick this virus.

    I'm going to make lentil potato carrot stew today. Not too much, since my roommate is at the monastery. They closed the monasteries to visitors, but they made an exception for her since she is close to the end of her discernment period and hopes to join the sisters there soon.

    They still allow us to go to the grocery store and to pick up food and medicine. Also outside to exercise. That's about it. They have special hours at the grocery store for seniors. I will have to get up early in the morning to do that!

    I'm glad you're doing well!

    I've had to pick through three stores at a time and I still don't find everything but I come close! I sometimes use food stamps or a food voucher so shopping online won't work for me a lot of time

    We went to a warehouse store and it was picked over. Ohio has a stay at home order. I will have to see what is next for me.

    I want to try ordering my groceries also. But I do like to pick out my own fruit and veggies. I guess I'm too picky when it comes to those. Bananas for instance; I always get the smallest ones I can find and I get them pretty green so they last longer. Can you tell them stuff like that when you order? We had the same day you did. Sunny in the morning then turning cloudy and rainy in the early evening. Guess that's just how Spring is. Have a great week and stay grateful. It makes us so much happier.
