We now know that the coronavirus and social distancing is going to be with us for a while, so most all fun weekend events have been cancelled. This original list offers ideas of what you should consider doing at home instead
This may be the perfect time to consider attacking your ongoing list of those “I hate to do,” I’ve been postponing, and I”ll do tomorrow.
Guess what folks, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday. Get onto it.
We’re not at Armageddon, but it’s a good time to go down the ultimate list.
You’re working from home, and need to take a break Here are some constructive things to do.
•Think about planning your Wills and Estates, just get a notebook and begin making the list. Contact your biological lawyer and get a referral. “To my dear cousin Mildred, I leave the soup tureen that you’ve always admired. And the recipe for pea soup that you always enjoyed at family gatherings. To my cousin Arnold, my stamp collection, to my Uncle Harold, my coin collection.

•Do your taxes. Investigate FREE or low cost tax filing services.
•Clean your windows-haven’t done that in years.
•Call your elderly relatives once a week. They will be delighted to hear from you.
