Still no signs of infection in my two-person household. Other than a grocery run last Tuesday and some random “booze runs,” we haven’t really left the house. Except for some walks (went to a local pet cemetery Saturday)! We’ve been super careful when we go out, keeping appropriate “social distances,” using hand sanitizer before and after visiting stores, etc. We’ve also been trying to stay away from “big” stores.
I just made a (yummy) stirfry dinner tonight…using the bag of rice I was fortunate enough to score right after “shoppageddon” started. I know it’s one of the hot commodities in stores right now, along with meats and pastas. And duh…toilet paper! We’re good for probably at least 3-4 weeks for paper products. Our freezer, fridge and cupboards still pretty stocked.
Today, we decided to “stock up” on some vodka – and bought two 1.75 liter bottles and a couple of big bottles of cranberry juice -as well as a small bottle of lime juice from a very unbusy liquor store by the mall (mall is closed). With some stores refusing to take empties right now, switching to liquor for a bit might be the thing to do!
To stretch out the juice and keep the drinks from being overly sweet, we’ll dilute the juice a bit.
Having some drinks on hand has made the evenings at home more bearable! Later, we’ll probably adjourn to the “human cave” in the basement for games and music! I came SO close to kicking his ass in “Monsters Menace America” last night! Rematch is on tonight! You’re going DOWN, mister!
