Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Things are crazy now. I think we are all trying to stay healthy and maintain sanity as well. I thought I would start this thread so folks can check in and discuss how they're doing. I want all my BIC friends to be okay. I will kick this off with a first post. Take care of yourself lovelies.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Oh wow @treestar86  I suppose I have been lucky. I order my groceries online and havenโ€™t had issues getting any. Lysol has been a different story. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@GG84that's good to hear.  there are a number of stores around here w/plenty of food, but when they're all out of TP and you don't drive and have to spend all night riding around trying to find a store that's open and has TP...not so fun haha.  I suppose I should look into ordering, haha.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@treestar86 @This is what I found on Amazon ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@itscarin That first question/answer... ๐Ÿคฃ We can always count on Amazon questions and reviews for cheap entertainment. 

 

All of CharmInโ€™s TV commercials seem cruel now. Quit telling us how fabulous your tp is when we canโ€™t bleepinโ€™ buy it anywhere! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Iโ€™ve seen Angel Softโ€™s new tp commercials about keeping up with demand... um, in which cities/towns? Not Chicago! 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@itscarin  haha, wow, that's a lot for $15!  what a steal! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Trying convenience stores and gas stations for TP is actually not a bad idea @treestar86.  My son called me to tell me that while all of the grocery stores in his area were out, he saw some at a number of gas stations and one 7-11.  You may have to pay more, but it would be worth it if you were out.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@mrsmouse  I figure at least I could get some from the bathroom if they're out, haha. ๐Ÿ˜„  the sad thing is, with most places closed, just think of all the bathrooms with toilet paper sitting there, going unused!!  like the huge college campus here...tons of bathrooms. lol

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

OMG, I didn't even think of sneaking it from their bathroom @treestar86!  Haha!  I wish you lots of TP finding luck!!

@treestar86, I had the same problem, but caught an 18 rol...

@treestar86, I had the same problem, but caught an 18 roll of Charmin on Amazon. My UPS man delivered it today and I was so happy, happier than any beauty product I've ordered before. We were down to 4 rolls at the house and I was getting nervous. Already have another order placed to have more delivered the end of April. It really was only a few dollars more than I would normally pay. Also snagged some Lysol wipes (mainly for my coworkers) and Kleenex.

Thanks @tsavorite, I'm on Amazon trying to find more lyso...

Thanks @tsavorite, I'm on Amazon trying to find more lysol wipes to send to daughter in law. Hopefully I'll snag some today or tomorrow. They sent us gloves and masks, now I'll feel a little better if my husband NEEDS to go to the store. I told him to wear his safety googles too ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: @treestar86, I had the same problem, but caught an 18 rol...

@Luvstravel ,

I wish that I could duplicate your luck shopping for these supplies!  Correction:  It's probably your excellent skill at shopping, not luck!

Re: @treestar86, I had the same problem, but caught an 18 rol...

@Luvstravel  how lucky!  I'd be so glad to see TP show up at my door too, haha.  I've been joking for years that I should just start ordering it, since I use too much and it's a pain to keep going out when I need it (I have plenty of food).  I actually use napkins, since they're cheaper and go farther...hopefully the TP nuts haven't caught on yet, but at this point even paper towels are probably endangered!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

This wouldn't be QUITE so bad if the weather was at least halfway decent but all we have here where I live is rain.  And more rain.  And MORE rain.  I'm dying to be able to at least be outside but that isn't an option without getting drenched.  I'm used to being able to go to the gym every day before work--it's  great way to start my day--and without the gym and being able to take walks outside I'm starting to seriously feel very stir-crazy from lack of any way to physically burn off any energy.  Arrrrghhhhh!!!!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@CookieGirl1 

Honestly, I suffered from eating disorders for years and exercise addiction was part of my disordered behaviour. (Not at all implying you have an ED) I can totally get how weird it feels to not do something you are used to doing but BUYING A TREADMILL girl? Thatโ€™s something I would have done in my disordered days. Literally - I did that when there was a snowstorm for a week straight and I couldnโ€™t run my normal 20 km run every morning, I bought a freaking treadmill ๐Ÿคฃ Youโ€™ll totally get through this. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Lol, @GG84,  I know.  I'm not actually going to buy one; I know that it's because I'm just feeling a little stressed and that's a great outlet for me and I miss the people! I'm honestly so thankful for this community because it's a great way to connect with friends since obviously social distancing is encouraged right now :).  

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@CookieGirl1, exercise is a real stress reliever for me, and I'm sad that my gym is closed.  I'm doing some pushups and situps, but it's not the same. ๐Ÿ˜•

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I haven't swam in months, but now that all the stores are closed (which was my excuse to get out of the house) now I really wanna go swimming!!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

I feel you @CookieGirl1!  It's been raining & cold here too. I've been trying to get in some exercise in the home & open the door for some fresh air a little when it isn't raining.  A lot of companies are offering free workout videos and I have been thinking of trying some of those.  Hang in there!  Hopefully, clear skies will be on the horizon for us all!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Thanks for the encouragement, @mrsmouse.  I know that everyone else is in the same boat but it still feels hard, doesn't it?  Guess I'm just feeling whiny...

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

It absolutely feels weird @CookieGirl1!  It's also a little disheartening too when you have the motivation, but not the means.  ๐Ÿ˜ž

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Three months, you guys!  Does that feel like forever to anyone else?!  I really miss being able to go out to eat. I really donโ€™t know how Iโ€™m not going to go crazy for 3 months. Thereโ€™s been periods where I havenโ€™t gone out (maybe not for 3 months) but itโ€™s different when you can and choose not to versus when you canโ€™t. 

I canโ€™t even imagine what this is going to look like for the economy. Pro: everyone will save a ton of money by not being able to eat out. Con: those servers are going to lose their income. Pro: weโ€™re reducing our carbon footprint. Con: those people who work at airlines and in airports will lose their jobs. 

Maybe everyone will start working at toilet paper factories and shipping share houses since those are the only things still open!

 

Maybe Andrej from 90 day fiance will finally become a trucker since the demand for truckers will probably increase. See how easy it is to start going down weird rabbit holes when youโ€™ve got nothing but time to think?
