Good morning gang.

Doing our best to help flatten the curve here and hoping the numbers come in better than the estimates over the next few weeks. PJ, I catch the headlines too and try not to watch too much news - it's crazy stressful.

Purps, that's a great little thank you post - awesome. I think there's a lot of things to be learned from this crisis.

I hope everyone has a good day

A reasonable Sunday here - even with the new normal.

If you haven't checked in to say "Hi" in a little while (or a long while), now would be a great time to do that - nice to know that everyone is doing okay.

Be good ....

Hey Purps and Venus. Glad you are both doing well.

We passed Evan over to his new family today. So we are happy/sad. They seem like a real nice family and heíll get a chance to get even more attention!! We will miss the little guy.

Donating blood is a great and necessary thing - very nice, PJ. I've given a fair amount over time, but it's been a little while since I've done it - I'm not on any reminder list since we moved - On my own list now.

Feeling a little blah with all the social distancing - a little hard to get motivated in general. Tomorrow will be better, I'm sure

Be good ....

We've got a pretty clear sky here tonight, and that moon is incredibly bright. I thought it would actually be pink!! Sometimes, not too smart

The moon was awesome here too! Itís cool and comforting knowing weíre all staring at the same moon.

My husbandís mother broke her back so we have been taking turns taking care of her. Not really any alternative to that and it scares us, but has to be done. She canít be alone. We take all the precautions we can when with her, masks, hand sanitizer, but itís still a little frightening.

Happy/sad for you, MITA. Fostering is hard, but glad you were there for Evan.

Sorry about your landlady and the smell, Suze. That sucks. Hope it gets better fast.

Iíll check out the thread about Shannon, Purps, thanks for sharing.

Hey Caramel!

Well done, PHX, donating blood. Iím with MITA, I used to, but itís been a while. I should be more like you. 🙂

Congratulations, Dee! Well done. ❤️

Tomorrow is my dadís birthday. A few months ago we werenít sure heíd see another birthday. Iím very grateful heís here. We are doing a birthday parade down his street in the afternoon. Itís going to be cool.

Also, Nathan hit 70 days sober today. Heís doing great.

Stay safe, friends!

I donated to the Salvo's domestic violence homeless Easter appeal (I was homeless, they saved me in so many ways)

Time to ensure I was not Corona-ifed- 60m

that I was not carrying diseases- 30m of digital paperwork and blood tests/pressure

time to give just under 1L of blood- 9m.

the nurse was fascinated by me explaining I was an alcoholic in recovery- always, not recovered.
