I'll start. 



Wife and I are walking 3 times a day for a total of about 5 miles



I'm doing about 40 minutes of stretching starting at 7:30



I cut most sweets and have lost about 5 lbs over the last 2 weeks



Watching lot's of shows on TVLAND like Andy Griffith, Gunsmoke, Everybody loves Raymond, etc,



Playing one or 2 games of bannagrams with the wife (a game like scrabble)


 limiting myself to 3 hours of news programs a day



and of course checking in with my friends here and on facebook/



one more. Calling old and new friends to see how they are doing

5:00 am - Slowly, painfully climb out of bed


5:30 am - Walk around as long as it takes to be able to stand completely upright


6:00 am - 7:00 am - Check emails, bank accounts to be sure I still have some money


7:00 am - 1 hour breathing/stretching/mild "strength" exercises


8:00 am - 15 minutes each on treadmill & elliptical 


8:30 am - 1 mile brisk walk around neighborhood


9:00 am - 5:30 pm


 a.) Hike local trails (2-3 miles max) 2X week


 b.) Hang out on Yes board


 c.) Do a bit of "consulting" work to finance my lavish lifestyle


 d.) Work on “American Baseball Stadiums” puzzle my granddaughters gave me for Christmas


5:30 - Watch local and national news 


6:30 - Try to find something to fill the hour until Jeopardy


8:00 - Fall asleep while Netflix binge watching  


2:00 am - Wake up (prostate issues?)


2:10 am - Back to bed.


4:30 am - Wake up, again

Yeah, having the money to pay for cable or Satellite TV requires almost a full time job. Thanks for playing

To be exact ... cable with all the movie channels including netflix ... phone ... internet and security system runs me about $300 bananas a month ... my daughter thinks I'm insane for paying for it ... but I'm spoiled.

I think ours is around $250. Same stuff, except we don't have a land line.

Hanging drywall, making cabinets, and working on windows.  My son is here helping me for the duration of the crisis, and we're not going anywhere except to get food/supplies and going down to my daughter's to help her and my son-in-law with meals and the kids.  Their childcare center closed last week.  So far, everybody is healthy and I hope that holds true for my fellow posters and their families as well.

Hopefully you're able to find respirators before you have to sand that drywall mud.

I had forgotten that I had in storage two 3M P100 vinyl respirators with packs of cartridges, so we're good to go.  I don't go on shopping trips without 'em, even though they aren't very comfortable to wear.
