I went for a walk after work yesterday since it was nice out and I hadn't gone outside since Sunday. A lot of people were out but were generally doing a good job staying away from each other. They took the rims off the basketball hoops in a bunch of the parks here in NYC which definitely helps.

I was pretty bummed after that walk to realize that was going to be the high point of the week for me

I was out grocery shopping today: some morans are totally ****in' clueless about social distancing!!!!

The likker store was a far more pleasant shopping experience, but it sucked paying full retail instead of duty free rates!!!

According to this coronavirus tracking site, the state of NY has more confirmed cases than all but 5 countries: Italy, China, Spain, US (ex NY), Germany. Yikes.

Worried about my family.

Mom has been furloughed. She hadn’t planned on retiring. She never want to stop working. And she’s going to hate not working. Financially she will be ok but worried for her sanity and mental status over this.

Marriott family member still has his job while just about everyone around him has been cut.

Little brother and wife, while normally make a nice living in their professions, will be hurting since they won’t be bringing in much income for a while. They have savings and will be ok for a few months or maybe longer...I don’t know how much they have saved...but their monthly bills are astronomical. At least they are saving a ton for the girls’ daycare!

So far things are ok with me. Fingers crossed.

Some family members are going to be ok but other family members will struggle.

Iíve been doing okay for the most part, but lately Iíve been having a lot of anxiety come in waves. I have been going on runs to stay active and go out of my way to stay far away from other people. And most people do the same, but some donít. Today there were huge groups of people playing catch at the park, talking, playing basketball, not making any space on the bike path for people to pass.

I feel like despite doing everything I should be doing, people who donít care are going to give me this thing, and Iíll give it to my kids and husband, and then I start to spiral into a nervous wreck. And then eventually I reset, and Iím fine. Or whatever ďfineĒ is these days.

I have made a point of getting dressed every day. I still wear my flip flops around, but I make a point of bathing, changing my drawers, and putting on some clean casual clothes.

We had to buy a new lawn mower yesterday so I went to Lowe's. OOMG Lowe's was super packed and people were not social distancing at all in there. There were also 2 separate ladies walking around with no mask and a cough. This whole situation made me very anxious and it also made me wonder about how well we are all going to do going back to normal life. How many of us are going to develop OCD tendencies through this? How many will develop depression? Stay sane out there.
