|I'm lucky that I've got a spouse who's a good partner and roommate (25 years now) so we provide support for each other. We have nice neighbors on either side of us and have occasional "deck chats". Even then we yearn for the freedom to get out and do whatever, whenever. I get out once a week or so for basic shopping and Em meets her women's group every couple of weeks in a park, several feet away from each other. Zoom chats and FaceTime calls with you all and other friends help. I have a board games group I used to see weekly, and two nights now we've played group games using a site called Jackbox.TV . I can recommend it if you like games of wits and words.
I for one believe our lives will be dominated by this bug for many months to come. On the checklist of conditions that cause severe consequences, I tick off a few of them, ugh. I've got too many people who depend on me, so I'm going to be as cautious and safe as I can.
Now, what are you doing, if anything, to avoid going stir crazy?

I'm not a Zoo, but over the years I've played one on radio/TV. .
