      Thanks for the reminder that's it's Wednesday - I lose track!

  4. Sunday would of been the boys graduation 😒

    1. Laura

      It's so sad that they will not have a traditional graduation.  My niece is graduating from High School and my nephew is graduating from Grade School, and me with my master's degree and all of or graduations are cancelled.

      I am so sorry that you are missing out sharing these milestones with your boys.  There will be many more celebrations in the years to come.  But I'm sure that doesn't take away this feeling of loss.  My oldest daughter teaches high school, and she as a teacher is having a difficult time not being able to say goodbye to these students she formed a special bond with.  I'm sorry for the parents, for the teachers, and for these students of 2020 and pray they will conquer this world and do great things in the future.

       

  5. Officially the last day of high school for the boys.

      Congratulations to them! Their school year didn't end the way everyone expected in September, but it is still a praise-worthy achievement.

      How exciting!  How are they going to fill their summer days?

      They both will work at the school for outside maintenance.  They've worked there every since they were freshman during the summer

  6. I've spend 12 hours today painting my living room and hallways.  It's been 14years since it's been painted

      It's now a very light tan, was a gold color.  When it's light it looks white almost, but when it starts to get darker you can see it's tan.  Huge change in the room.

      Must brighten it up. Sounds lovely.

      Its amazing what a difference a paint color can make.   We repainted our kitchen and master bath this spring.  They were bright beachy colors, which I tired of.  Now they are a nice light gray in the kitchen, same as dining room, and the bath is a light blue/green, same as bedroom.  Much more relaxing.  Enjoy your change.  

  7. Dirty Dancing is on Hulu...I haven't seen this forever!

      NEVER!!!!!  Might have to borrow Emma's account...

  8. Update on gallery:  They have restarted the gallery and it's working right now, so you can upload.  BUT this is just a fix.  We need to update the forum/gallery...and that's something i'm hoping can wait until Monday after this weekend is over.  So i'll keep an eye on it.

      In no hurry here either! It's better to air on the side of extreme caution than to open things back up too early and have a resurgence of cases and deaths. There are far too many people who have not been taking this seriously enough :( I just cut my own hair or wear a hat :) LOL

    3. SodScrap

      SodScrap

      Luckily, my hair is long and I just wear it up.  LOL  It's so different in rural areas like mine.  Our county has a 100% recovery rate.  Caution is still needed for sure.

      On Saturday 5/8 North Carolina goes to Phase 1 Opening.  The stay at home order is still in effect but some businesses will be allowed to open (which ones will be announced today or tomorrow).  If we do not have a surge in cases Phase 2 will start 5/28 and Phase 3 Is the end of June.  Even at that time at risk groups will be advised to stay home (this is my group) so Looks like I'm home until sometime in July at best.  A bit daunting to say the least.

      Today I make my fist venture into public for a critical doctor's appointment.  I am armed with an N95 mask.  I have to say I am a bit nervous.

  11. Yes, i'm so low down on the "to do" list that today's job was to take the hose and wash off the house

      We had snow!!  Thankfully, no accumulations.

      We had about two inches of snow accumulation two days ago and forecast said 4-7" today. The blooms are rotting right on the branches of the pink magnolia.

      it got chilly here too but no where near snowing. in fact we haven't had snow all year.

  14. I was just getting ready to type "Happy Monday"  but I guess it's Tuesday...lol

      It's exactly the same for me!

  15. And the official word today that graduation has been postponed...not cancelled yet, but I would not be surprised

    1. Celestine

      Celestine

      It will be heartbreaking for your boys if it is canceled completely, I'm sure. High school graduation is one of life's real milestones. One of my nephews is finishing veterinary school, and his graduation has been canceled. 

    2. CRS

      CRS

      Our school hasn't decided what to do yet. They are deciding whether to postpone it, have a parade through town with the kids in cars with their families or a virtual graduation. Lauren said the principal seemed most excited about the parade idea...

      My son's college grad has been cancelled although they plan to read names over ZOOM! 

  16. Just got the notification that they officially canceled in person school for the remaining of the year. They will finish the year online.

      Here too. No graduation ceremony either. That is the worst as this is the only HS graduation for your boys.

    3. Mikelle

      We were informed of the same a couple of days ago.  Not surprised, but still a little shocking for how quickly all this happened.  I'm sorry for your boys, though, since they're seniors.  😥

      I know so many that are affected by this order, but I'm not surprised.

      We are doing okay. Not much has changed for my husband as he is usually home when I am out doing my volunteer work which I am really missing my work in Aged Care.

    3. beatricemi

      beatricemi

      We are healthy which is a good thing. Staying home except for walks maintaining social distance. Ordering groceries online for pickup. Missing my grandchildren so much. I'm trying to stay upbeat but find I tear up so easily.

      MariJ

      That’s so true, Bea.   I find I’m doing “ok” but then last night my washer and Amazon Fire stick wouldn’t work and I felt so close to tears I decided to call it a night and go to bed...   

  18. The good thing about all this home time is we are getting things marked off our "honey do" list

    1. mimes1

      mimes1

      Our yard hasn't been this tidy in a long time! Definitely a silver lining to this difficult time.  Its super nice to come home from work and de-stress in the yard.

    2. tinkerbell11

      tinkerbell11

      My husband is working from home and remains super busy...I wish the Honey do list had a chance ;)! Glad others are benefiting from this craziness!

      Traveling might be a little hard at this moment to get there, but they love washing cars so i'm sure they would be more then happy to 🙂

      We are doing okay. Our little country town has a small supermarket so for now we plan to just shop there and not go into the bigger towns with Ken having the damaged heart and turning 75 next week.

  21. I've honestly lost track as to what day of the week it is

    4. MariJ

      MariJ

      Ok...   Seriously.   All day I thought it was Wednesday.  Even when I got my Thursday town newspaper I thought, I wonder why they sent that today, I guess they decided to do it Wednesday.   Even when I tried figuring it out, I was sure it was Wednesday until I finally asked someone what day it is...   😩

  22. Getting my house cleaning list ready for next week.  One thing about this, with everyone home I will have the cleanest house anyone has ever seen

    1. Florida granny

      Florida granny

      Cleaning supplies are scarce at our local stores; I hope things are better near you!

      I decided to tidy my cupboards - one per day. My house will never have been so organised!

      Oh no that is too bad. I couldn't attend either. Maybe another one should be planned.

      I think that time would be around 11am Thursday my time which means I will not be home. That is when I do my volunteer work in Aged Care.
