OMG!  How are you doing?  This is such a disturbing time; we are fervently hoping that you are coping as well as you can.  In Florida, everyone is under orders to lockdown.  Going out for food is OK, but most errands should be avoided or postponed.  With our medical professionals overwhelmed, it is imperative we do our best to stay healthy and out of their way!!!  Stay home!

Exercise is necessary when you’re cooped up indoors. Sandy did a push-up today. Well actually, she was retrieving lost jelly beans from under the sofa. But she used her arms to get back up. Close enough!!!
