     I've been staying in for 3 - 4 weeks now.  I must admit that I'm starting to get a little crabby. In fact, if you asked the Micro Manager , I'm at the top end of the crabby scale.

     Routines have been broken and cannot be followed. At least once a week we did a grocery run. at least twice a week we ate out. At least twice a week we had business or other shopping that had to be done. I also like to go to various park areas for a good walk. I didn't realize we were out so much until I wrote this down. Then I have at least a couple of meetings a month and I can always find a speaker some place in town who is worth listening to. 

    So I'm starting to see why I'm a little cranky. 

    What's really got my attention is , "How much longer will I have to stay in?"

    Now I have to take this dreaded virus very seriously.  First, I don't want to get the virus. I'm in the over 80 category. Other than that I'm in fine shape. 

    I think it's our responsibility to not get the virus. When we get the virus we spread it around to folks who may suffer or even die from it. We also may need some serious looking after.

    So how long are we going to have to stay in? It looks like quite a while. It's certainly going to be more than 4 weeks. The way it's going it could be several months. At least when spring gets here I can spend more time outdoors

    So to stay healthy and protect all the friends and neighbors, I'm staying in. I don't like it, but things just happen that way.
