With the exception of toilet paper and cleaning products, we didn't have much shortages. We still have some shortages with some cleaning products. For toilet paper, we might not get the brand we want, but we can get it.

Our stores put limits on items and keep the shelves well-stocked, they have done a great job here. Disinfectant wipes are what we cannot get. But I have tons of good rags and do a lof of laundry.

Our stores are getting to be better stocked. Still like Wanda said some items are now not as good as before. Paper towels don't match up to what the store brand they used to carry.
They always seem to run out of kale which we all love here.
Frozen veggies are now limit of six bags versus the limit used to be only four.

Our stores seem to be doing much better. Some things still have limits like limits of two or three on items but generally we seem to be able to get anything even though sometimes Mal cannot find the brands I like. The last paper towels he bought were terrible, just fell apart when wet!

Have the stores in your area started restocking shelves as they should be, or are you still finding a lot of empty shelves?

Here. certain things have been restocked, but things like toilet paper are still scarce.

Yes! I do wear a mask in any public place or whenever social distancing may not be possible. Even though our county has low numbers, our neighboring county is a hot spot for Ohio. Dayton, Ohio, has mandated masks in all public places with a fine of $80 for people who refuse to comply. Even in our county most of the mall stores and many other stores have signs up that say no entry without a mask. Every store has sanitizer available by the doors and sometimes on counters here and there throughout the store. I think masks and hand washing are the best things we can do for ourselves and others.

Montana is really low risk, even though our numbers are climbing.

I see the difference in whether we wear a mask or not on the risk factor.

Our biggest danger is tourist bringing it in.

I have only gone out once (Library!!!), last week, and I wore a mask. I have to go out tomorrow and will wear a mask.
When the time comes for me to routinely go out, I will wear a mask.
This week our county has decided if you leave your property, wear a mask, the #s are on the rise here again. When they re-opened the county at the end of May, I thought they were crazy, Here we are, closed again.
Jeff has a colonoscopy tomorrow and I have to be there as he will be sedated.

New wirh this closure- you are to wear a mask in your car if more than one person is in car-that's how I got away with no mask, I only left my car if a park was empty. Now I will wear a mask in the car.

We use it when going to the grocery store. Whenever we get takeout from dunkin.
When we got haircuts, when I got my nails done. When we did Curbside pickup at Old Navy.
Whenever packages are delivered here. Whenever workers do work in or around our home.
When we go for walks where others are around.
Kevin has to.wear one for hours on his postal job.
So I guess we pretty much wear our masks an awful lot here.
We do wash them regularly.

I save coins mainly because I empty my pockets when I do laundry. When my change cup then I keep my pockets full of change until the cup is empty, then I start saving coins again. It works for me.

I was just saving pennies but I seem to collect a lot of change on grocery days so decided to start saving it all and will use it for a special Christmas gift for Bob.

Yes I do again. I stopped because 1. after I grew out of my patterns I kept thinking "when
I lose the weight I'll sew for myself"; 2. there were a few years Tacy didn't want homemade clothes, now I do skirts for her and dresses for me.

ours has been steady, 3.19 for regular at the no-name gas ( but we go 5 miles for that, the closest 2 stations to us are 4.50+, we bitch constantly at the 10+ oil rigs sitting off our beaches!)

Later in day, we went into the city, the price has gone down to 2.99 and the neighborhood station, it's 4.89

Do you think you've done better or worse with your weight loss journey since the self-quarentine?
***************************************
I've done worse. Even though for us personally, nothing much has changed, I find myself stress eating. Bob hasn't been doing very well and I'm having to do more and more for him, so it gets stressful. But I'll get thru it.

Yes, we both did. It came at a good time. Last July we were going to replace our 17yo mattress, but my back quit on me requiring surgery (over 4 hrs), got evicted (good terms) , then lost my job - hence, no new mattress. Jeff's sciatica started acting up in Jan and is now driving me crazy, lucky for me he is seldom sick or laid up, he is a demanding patient (I am quiet, just wanting to be left alone to die when I'm sick) So today we ordered a new mattress and it can't get here soon enuf!!!

We all had a laugh, for the 3 of us the stimulus was deposited directly in accounts, then Tacy, then me, then Jeff all got mail from an IRS return address but inside a letter on White House paperhead congratulating us on receiving this money, with the Donald's signature. Making sure we knew! We are saving them.

What are your May goals?
************************
Mine is to stay virus free, keep Bob virus free if at all possible.
I also am working on less snacking.
I didn't weigh on the 1st like I normally would do. I'll either weigh on the 13th when I go back to the store or wait until June 1st. Scale readings just aren't high on my priority list right now.

For me it's always been on my mind. I gained four pounds at the beginning and gradually losing it again.
I exercise everyday between walking away the pounds video or Richard Simmons Sweating to the Oldies and Curves classes and now resistant band exercises too.
So I'd say from scale of one to ten it's a 9.

With all that's going on right now, how high on the list (1 to 10) is your weight loss journey?
*************************
For me, things haven't really changed much from what it was before the virus scare. I only go grocery shopping 2-3 times a month. Granted I can't go to the library and such right now, but over all, nothing much has changed so I don't feel a need to forgo my food program. So I'd say mine is still around a 9 most days.

I don't shop anyway but we did drive to 2 stores yesterday, DH shops, we couldn't get macaroni or fresh garlic. He also said the only TP they were selling were induviual rolls. I just don't know what's going on.

He normally shops at Costco so we have basics not because we hoard but because that's how they sell it.

Not as much hoarding but shelves are bare.
Right now the past few weeks we are ordering food through instacart.
Trying to avoid having to shop in the store .
Then we continue to wipe bags and groceries down and wash all fruit and vegetables .

I haven't seen anyone with carts full of the stuff that is being hoarded. Seems like people are being pretty reasonable here but there are still shortages in the store at times. I keep hearing about meat shortages and the meat cases are not as full as usual but I can usually find what I need.

I used to have heart burn daily but I finally "closed my mouth to food" at 7;30 PM nightly and now it is a seldom-occuring event easily taken down by 1 Tums. Much happier!

I've really only had enough heartburn to cause me problems when I was pregnant. That was a long, long time ago. Several years ago I was also on medication that caused heartburn but that was quickly switched.

How often do you get heartburn?
*******************
Lately I seem to be getting it a lot. I use baking soda water for it, which helps, but I don't like having all the extra sodium from the baking soda.

As an adult, what's the smallest you've ever been?
******************************
At 39 years old I had gotten all the way down to 119 lbs., which was way too small for me but I was in good physical shape.First and only time I got down to a size 8. After meeting Bob, over the course of 4 months, I got up to about 130 lbs. Stayed there til around 2002, then I started going into menopause. Gained up to 194 lbs., then dropped down to 140 lbs. But then in 2005 I went into full menopause and quickly gained 100lbs. over a 8 month period. Since then, I'd gained an additional 30 lbs. then in the last 3 years I've been slowly getting it back off. But my very lowest as an adult was the 119 lbs. in 1996.

Most of it will go to savings. We need to keep a pad for emergencies and I don't have all the money saved for our Florida trip this summer.

On the other hand....there is no telling how well our kids are going to come through this so we may be helping them. We know we will be okay but they are all on tighter budgets.

What will you do when you get the stimulas check?
*********************************
Not sure how it'll work over me getting it, but Bob will get one. Usually any extra money like that, he and I split 50/50. I know I want to get a new pair of glasses, but the rest I'll save. Knowing Bob, he'll put his all into groceries. He likes to stock up anytime we have extra. So at least what I put up to save will be there in case of an emergency.

I think Kat is correct in saying that people are acting out of fear. I also think they feel like they have lost control of their lives. We all have those feelings to some extent but we should remember that we all probably know hoarders. They sit beside us in church, live in our neighborhoods, vote beside us, drive down the street beside us. They are our neighbors....and they have allowed their fears to overcome them. It is horrible behavior but it mostly makes me sad for our country.

That being said, I was stocked up on toilet paper before we left for Florida so I came home to a good supply. Other things though have been hard for Mal to find including our St. Patrick's day corned beef. I'm tickled that he came home with one today after trying many times. We will just celebrate our Irishness (is that even a word?)a little later. LOL

It's selfish. We are in need of toilet paper antiseptic wipes and paper towels.
Stores are out of them due to hoarders. Such a shame!!!
