The news just announced we have someone being tested for Covid-19 near us and it is not sounding good. The person is at one of the colleges and lives in town that Rachel and Jaysn work in, where my pharmacy is and where I do a lot of my shopping. If the one person has it, you can bet there are more cases circulating in the community. I knew it was just a matter of time before it hit our side of Washington state. Things are getting scary.
Jeff and I were just in that town a few days ago picking up one of my perscriptions (I was able to get a 3 month supply thank God), some Sudafed, beef and chicken bullion (for making soups and things), a huge bottle of creamer and a few other items. We also went to Safeway to pick up a free can of olives and some rice a roni and were surprised to find Zinc lozengers there since everywhere else was sold out. We got a package of those too. I just pray no one who may have the virus was in either of the stores.
After seeing that we may have it in the community and seeing that local businesses and the colleges are preparing for us to be hit, I did what I always do...I took inventory of my pantry and my medical supplies once more. I did find some gaps so I am hoping to fill those on Thursday early in the morning before other people are up shopping. I'll just have Jeff take me in when he gets home from his overnight shift since he has to go and deposit his paycheck anyway. Things would not be pretty here if we ran out of coffee and if Jeff is home for 2 weeks, we will go through lots and lots of coffee. 😉 Of course there are other items too and if it is just Jeff and I here, we can last quite awhile, but if some of the rest of the family comes to stay, we will go through things much faster. Peanut butter is another item I would hate to run out of...both Jeff and one of our grandsons are addicted to it.
Be safe all and please be prepared.
