What have you been eating the most? Do you have a recipe to share?

The only clothes I've bought are PJ's from Lands End and trainers from Nike.
What’s one new thing you started doing big or small since this all happened?
I'm basically a fulltime tech support team for my parents.
Tell me about your evening routine! And your morning one too!
I do a family FaceTime call with my parents every night at 7pm. I can't sleep if there's any unread messages in my inbox, so I go thru the day's emails, then go into bed and read the Post, some of my book, watch some TV. I'm an insomniac so it takes me hours to wind down and fall asleep.
What’s one way big or small that you’ve been helping others?
I volunteer with Citymeals on Wheels. (It was the only thing I did for my birthday this year.) You should do it too! Go to for more info.
What keeps you sane?
I'll let you know when I'm sane.
What one thing can’t you wait to do?

What's been much more interesting is that for once in my life I haven't had to talk to anyone I don't want to.
What’s one thing you’re grateful for?
Only one thing? I'm grateful for every little thing nowadays.
