  1. Hello I slept in until 5:10 this morning, I think that's the latest I've slept in 3 weeks. I took care of some paperwork stuff, did laundry and helped my dad wash my car and his truck. I'm sewing some more mask for my daughter who is a nurse and family members just in case we have to go out, we've done really good about staying home and I don't really want to go out and about. Hope you all are enjoying the day.
  2. Hello Everyone. Lea your little princess is a cutie. Katy I'm sorry to hear about Pam. I think I've lost track of whats open and whats not. I know the grocery stores and walmart are open, I've had delivery orders from them. The county south of mine has put some restrictionson the grocery stores, they only allow 50% capacity in the store, they have to have someone at the door to enforce it. They can't have salad bars or self serve food areas open and food samples being handed out. They are also allowing the store personnel to wear masks and gloves now. I wonder if my county will follow them. I worked on school stuff from 6 am until about 2:30 pm. Hopefully I have everything ready for next week. I am so tired, I know it's stress related so I am going to enjoy some stitching tonight and over the weekend. I need to take care of some things around here tomorrow but it shouldn't take much time and then I can play with my yarn and fabric. Stay safe everyone.

    Welcome to Crochetville!
  4. Yesterday was busy with work and my granddaughter and I never made it here to say hello. My granddaughter wasn't here today but I started working at 6:30 this morning and didn't stop until 5:30 this evening and there is more I could do but I'm too tired and the work will still be there tomorrow. I spent part of the day just getting myself better organized for my new teaching style. The online teaching program is working better and I've been able to do video conferences with my students for 2 days now. I turned on the news a few minutes ago and its depressing, I need to change the channel and do some crocheting. I hope you all enjoy your evening.
  5. Hello Everyone. This online teaching stuff stinks! The system crashed this morning, by the time it was up and running again it was the middle of the day. So I don't know if my students were able to access any of the activities and we didn't have our video conference. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I'm exhausted just from the stress of trying to figure it all out. I think I'm going to crochet for a little while. Enjoy your evening and stay safe.
  6. Hello Everyone Brenda those little things can make such a big difference. Mary Jo I'm not a browser at the store either I just want to get what I need and get out of there. Except maybe in the fabric store, I can spend some time there. I streamed church service this morning. And finished the Cinderella dress for my granddaughter. Then attended a webinar that left me more confused than before I watched it and really raised my anxiety so I decided to find a movie to watch and crocheted, I feel much more relaxed now. Not much else going on.
  7. Hello Mary Jo you made me laugh about the serial killer. Brenda I'm glad your sister is improving. Ratdog I'm sorry your husband's pay is being cut and you are working fewer hours, hopefully things will get back to normal soon. Bailey4 most kids are use to using technology in their classes and are much more comfortable with it than I am. But I will figure it all out. I don't have a big freezer but I try not to keep much in the freezer at all during hurricane season. I did an online Walmart grocery delivery order this morning. It's the first time I've done this but my daughter has told be for months that it beats going to the store and since I really don't want to be out and about it seems like a good time to try it. Then I spent a few hours doing school stuff. My little granddaughter's birthday is on Easter this year which is only 2 weeks away. She was planning to have a princess birthday party and requested 3 princess dresses to wear at her party, I guess she was planning wardrobe changes. There is not going to be a party but I started on the first dress this afternoon, I'm not sure if I'll get them all finished but the ones that are finished will be her birthday present. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your day.
  8. Hello Bailey4 we had a freezer like that in our basement when I was a kid. My daughter has an extra refrigerator and a chest freezer in her garage, she doesn't have to worry to much about the temp dropping below 50 here in south Florida. For being on spring break I sure worked a lot today, about 9 hours, but I'm starting to feel a little more comfortable with the online teaching set up. I'll probably work some tomorrow too and take Sunday off from it to rest before I start teaching on Monday. It's easier to be in my classroom than to teach online, our school superintendent said he expects we will have online school for the rest of this school and possibly for the start the next school year. I also move around a lot when I'm in my classroom and I find myself sitting too long when I'm on the computer, then I'm so stiff and sore when I stand up, I have to remember to stand up and stretch on a regular basis. I guess that's enough rambling.
  9. Good Morning. I have been awake since about 4:15 a.m., I laid in bed for about 30 minutes hoping I would go back to sleep but that didn't happen. Since this week is suppose to be spring break here and I have worked at home for the past 3 days and will again tomorrow, I've decided to relax and enjoy today. I am enjoying a very leisurely cup of coffee right now and my granddaughter will be here a little later to spend the day with me. My daughter has to go to work today, my son-in-law is working from home and his college classes are now online but he has live conferences via the computer today which could be a bit of a challenge with a busy 3 year old. I guess that's about it for me, I'll check back later today or tomorrow. Hope you all have a great day.
  10. Good Evening. Mary Jo I hadn't heard that about Publix, I wonder if it's all their stores. It will be interesting, I wonder if I'll be able to pay with cash like I usually do. I think if I have to go out I'm going to take latex gloves with me and my clorox wipes, I already have hand sanitizer in my purse. I think I'm starting to get a grip on the distance learning set up. I spent several hours working today, so much for spring break, but I probably won't work tomorrow since I will be taking care of my granddaughter. I think I need a little sewing time. Talk to you tomorrow.
