I wonder if we should all try to update on here every day or every few days on how we are all doing so that we know everyone is ok. I know we must all be stressed and worried about Covid 19. It's so scary listening to the news every day. I have a hard time not crying every time I hear about the loss of a life. Here in Ontario, we had a huge jump in reported cases in the past 24 hours, but they said that was to be expected because of people who had recently returned from March break, people who were advised not to travel but they did so anyways.😡
Social distancing is so hard , especially when we are so used to seeing our families and now we can't be together and we don't know how long this will go on for but obviously it's not ending anytime soon. I miss my family terribly. Haven't seen them in 3 weeks but we do skype and talk on the phone but it's still not the same 😕 . The twins will be turning 1 on May 8th and the way things are going right now I won't even be able to see them by then. :cry: I just want life to be back to normal.

It really is a scary time. Praying everyone will stay safe and that God will take this virus away very soon. I am happy to do the “quick check in”. ❤

Checking in here from Northern Calif. - Glad to be back home. Dr appt went well - removal of stitches next week and if pathology comes back clear I should be done for at least 6 months! YAY!!!! Super Score! On my way home I stopped to pick up a prescription at Walmart and there was a clerk handing out rolls of TP. I got the last 6 pack! Life is good!!!:cool:🌺

Abella is so not use to staying home. I usually take her everywhere with me. She loves going visiting. 😟

Playing around with making masks.... Using scrap fabric I've been hoarding for years. Wish I had hoarded more elastic! LOL - My brother in law is modeling one of them. What do you think? 👍👎😷???

Poor Pipper. He's just so confused. He doesn't understand why Dad is home all the time now ( working from home ) but not sitting in the lazy boy with him or coming with us for our morning walk. He likes his normal routine and nothing is normal anymore.

Our numbers jumped overnight again. This is the biggest 24 hour increase we've had so far. It's really hard not to worry. I don't like this.

This is chaos. Such a scary time. I'm so scared for my little baby. We don't go out but my stepson works at Home Depot and they are still open. He lives with us.

I feel bad for you. This should be such a happy time for you because you now have the baby you waited so long for and you shouldn't have to worry about her catching this horrible disease.
My daughter who has the twins has her teenage stepson living with them too and he works at Tim Hortons. As of today they sent him to live with his Mom and they told him he has to stay with his Mom until things are better. This was just too stressful for my daughter being worried about the babie's health.

Thank you Kathy for this thread, its important to stay in contact, we can uplift one another
We are doing well, just have cabin fever, can't go outdoors because its so cold here, it snowed yesterday 😣 where's Spring.
I have been texting Charity to see how Ethan and their little family is doing.
She has been working from home for the last 3+ weeks, so yesterday I ask her what she has been up to, here is her reply
Well, here's my day, I move from the dining room to the living room-so exciting!!!
I had to laugh because we are all in this together and if we don't laugh we will cry., no matter where we are in this big world we all know eventually this will pass in time, it will be a different world when we walk out of our homes
For now
I pray for those who are ill, those who are grieving, those who don't have $, those who are lonely, those who are homeless, those who fear.
I'm sending a scripture for you all. I love you dear friends



ISAIAH 41:13
For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

I know! My stepson lost his mom two years ago. He is 18 now but lives with us. There is no place to send him.

I am doing better. Got out and did some yard work yesterday. I'm retired from full-time work but do have a very small bookkeeping business. Today I'm working on March's books. It feels good to be productive. I'm looking forward to our family's first Zoom gathering tomorrow night. Today's a good day.

Lynne, Im looking forward to hearing all about your Zoom gathering..

Northern Calif:
We are in week 3 of shelter in place. I laugh at my daughter as every hour I get a new text from her with a picture of some new nook she has found to reorganize and clean. Her four kids are now used to the online classes and don't need very much supervision.

We are being told our curve has started leveling off. This is encouraging news. I just fear people will start ignoring the shelter in place law. Especially since it is sunny and beautiful with days in the low 70's. So many here and around the world in need of our prayers - this is heart breaking. Hopefully a cure will be found very soon. Stay safe SM family.

Paulann I hope you're right that your curve is starting to level off. We're not there yet. Our cases are nothing like the U.S. but it can go that way if people don't start the social distancing. Some people are really good at it but I still see groups of people standing around chit chatting. We don't have a shelter in place law, we're just supposed to keep 6 feet between people. I wish they would make us shelter in place. All schools and non essential businesses have been closed for 3 weeks now. Tomorrow our government is going to release an estimated projection on how this might play out. They said it's going to be scary. Maybe then people will take this more seriously.
Stay safe everyone.

The curve leveling is for the Bay Area only - we have been on lock down the longest - other counties in Calif joined our lock down last week. I'm hopefully optimistic that this trend will hold and spread to other areas.

Do you think your government will announce a shelter in place during tomorrows meeting? I can understand why making that decision is so hard and serious. Economically it is terrifying what it has done to our economy. I really think we will see the suicide rate go up sharply as people can't pay their bills any longer or provide for their family. The heart attack rate has already increased sharply. This is truly very very sad situation. We need to encourage and care for one another as best we can and PRAY!

"Such is the power of adversity. It brings even the strongest and most stubborn of us to our knees. It causes us to loosen our grip on those things that are of little value and cling tightly to the One we know can deliver us."
