So here we are, on Day 10 of staying at home, and self isolating (eh, with my partner — who is now working from home for the foreseeable future), and we’ve done all the following:
- Cleaned the entire apartment
- Washed and dried five (5) loads of laundry
- Cleaned out 3 draws of old clothes for charity
- Inventoried the larder
- Stripped and changed the bedding
- Partner cleaned the stove
- Watered all the plants
No wonder I feel exhausted already, I’ve done nearly 5k steps and it’s only 2:30. But hey, my homemade latte tastes great. Thanks Nespresso, I love our machine and our milk foamer. Who needs Tim Hortons or Starbucks, we have our own coffee corner. But will have to maybe ration our pods for a while, as we heard on the Midday Bulletin from the provincial government that all Malls are close as of midnight, tonight. As some people were not respecting the stay at home unless necessary.
Supermarkets and pharmacies are still open for business, but they’re starting to set hours for different age groups, so that the elderly and those most vulnerable can get food!
That said, most people, a good 90% are following what’s been asked of us, and because of that, our numbers, in province, are still low, at this stage, compared to else where across the planet. However, the government is warning that we could see a spike in numbers now most people from abroad are coming home. I say give it 7 to 14 days from the last person getting back, and we’ll see certain spikes.
I just hope we’re all doing enough, in the meantime, to help flatten that curve and keep our emergency workers, doctors and nurses, all safe as well.
We can hope that the good weather that’s arrived doesn’t make people restless or worse, stupid.
Stay safe out there, people. And please, stay home where at all possible.
