Hope everyone’s doing well. Now that we’re several weeks into this COVID-19 thing, I can’t get over how quickly and unexpectedly life can change. One moment, our top goal in life is to find a new home so we can move out of our rental. The next, we’re discouraged from even leaving the house, let alone the whole state, and our top struggle is finding toilet paper rather than a new home.
If you happen to live in one of the many countries where “panic buying” has become common, then this sight below has probably become the norm for you. Yes, we simply had to take photos in the grocery store for the sake of remembering these crazy times and how very bare the grocery store shelves were.
Fortunately, we managed to scrounge up enough stuff to get us by for the time being. We have some new foods in the pantry that we’ve never tried before because you just have to get whatever you can find. So that could be fun? Despite the craziness that’s been going on all over the United States and the world at large, we’re all doing relatively well, and everyone is staying healthy.
We’ve always been the type to prefer staying home, so at least that hasn’t been a problem. Plus, we’ve got two insanely cuddly kitties to keep us company (in the banner image above, Carmelita is on the left and Rosaline is on the right). Carmelita is the master of headbutts, and Rosie keeps me from going to bed at a normal hour each night because she ambushes me on the way to my room and wants lots of attention. And how can I refuse? Lately, she’s also been in the habit of crawling into my lap a lot, too, so I’m really her prisoner.
Another great way to spend our time is with the new Animal Crossing: New Horizons on the Switch. It’s been great fun, and I’ve been recording the occasional episode for our Virtual Bastion YouTube channel. My character’s name is Charlotte, and her island is called Quackville. I’ve grown quite fond of playing the Switch in handheld mode, during which Rosie cuddles next to me, Carmelita usually a short distance away, as she is the shyer of the two (though she has been known to snooze in our laps for long stretches, as well).

Well, that’s about it for updates. Just thought I should let you guys know what I was up to during the virus craziness. Stay safe, stay healthy, and good luck on finding toilet paper!
