Toilet Paper????

March 12, 2020

Ok, so we had been to Walmart over the weekend to buy Noah groceries before he headed back to college. What really changed between Saturday and Thursday? Olivia and I were in Walmart tonight and it seemed so very weird…

…no soap, no hand sanitizer, no toilet paper, no disinfectant wipes, no ramen noodles, limited canned vegetables… what is going on?

We are being told this virus is respiratory…so why the rush on toilet paper? I have heard nothing about symptoms that would cause excess bathroom usage?? And…didn’t people wash their hands before now?

All I can say right now is that I am glad we bought three large packages of toilet paper over the weekend (which was really weird because I NEVER buy extra, we are typically a household who waits until there is only one roll left in the entire house and then we buy more)!

and so the writing begins…

So forever, I have wanted to write a book (probably a children’s book, but who knows) life seems to always get in the way. Since life has suddenly come to an abrupt halt, I feel I might be able to start writing…so why not just start with a blog about daily life. Love to share happenings on Facebook but feel like I can keep more detail if I just blog. So, someday I may take all my posts and somehow turn them into a book 🙂

Perhaps I should introduce myself so you know who the main characters are within my life story….I’m Teresa and I am 50 years old — wait, what? what did that say? ok…yes, I’m 50… and fat, and love food, and love to have fun (especially with the little ones), and I do CrossFit. Wait… what did that say? CrossFit?? Did I say that right? Actually, Yes! I actually do CrossFit…I know, doesn’t sound like it fits with 50, fat and food….but as we go along I’ll fill you in on the journey to and through CrossFit. Probably should apologize now as you will get to read about my workout everyday….don’t worry, if you don’t understand the workouts and all that CrossFit jargon….you’re not alone…I still don’t get all of it….some but definitely not all…I’m learning.

Then there is the family unit… a geek husband of 25 years who totally stresses me out, four children (23, 20, 18, 15) who keep me very busy, lots of nieces and nephews, and a full-time job. But, I’ll keep you in suspense…you’ll learn about all those at some point.
