My son's pub is in Culpeper, the Fr Ghn Brewing Company. He is selling cans and growlers now, he'll reopen whenever the governor gives the go ahead. Right now he says it's 10 times the work for a fraction of the income, he just wants to get through intact, like all small businesses right now.

Sorry to hear that, Nell.

I see you live in Reston, is your son's pub local?

I live in Springfield.

I am picking we are going to find something similar at our cafe next week however till 11th May we will just be doing to order from online ...... My daughter will do that herself, bake the goods and deliver them which will work well and bring some money in.....we have decided that $1000 is better than nothing.....she won't get the staff in before 11th May and we will see what the PM's decision is then and whether we can open or not....it will still be slow even when we open again as some will still be working from home and there will be restrictions.....

My son has 2 of his 11 employees at the pub still working, but a few of them are getting too much unemployment money and don't want to work until August, or whenever unemployment payments run out. He is hanging in there, but he says it's 3 times the work for a fraction of the income.

Grinds my Gears as well Jacquie...
My girl has applied for what we are entitled to however some of her customers are encouraging her to sign up for the SOS I think it is called where folks buy coffee's and get them when we reopen....she has made the statement to her people that while some business may benefit from that she is not going to be greedy when we have enough to pay the staff and the rent....
She is a good girl......it will bless our business when we re-open!!!!

Thinking I'll take today was a "bye" .. go directly to tomorrow, which will be better! Not even going to think about my points.

Managed 60 min of exercise if I count flying around with the vacuum and mopping all floors before going out for groceries. OMG, some prices are so inflated! $6.99 for wax paper???
Missing my WalMart runs.

We have an early start tomorrow so calling it a day.

I like the idea of a Friday weigh in. Shall we start as of April 3rd? I am aiming for 7.6 pounds. If the group prefers another start date that's OK with me. I just need to tell myself I am started and get back on track.

I'm up for an internal challenge here too. ? go for 11 weeks, until the end of June.

Would we use Monday as a weigh in or perhaps even Fridays or Saturdays. That way we can relax a bit on Sunday dinners.

Jacquie....that would be great.....Maybe it spans April & May....thats realistic to potentially lose 5% of our current weight,.....Just a thought,....

I just noticed the April Chat Thread as well! I also just noticed we are a full week into April, so there's that.... emoticon I have done the 5% challenges in the past, but found that I only reached my goal a couple of times. I didn't want to bring the team down as a whole, so I'm bowing out for a few rounds. I would, however love to part of an internal challenge here, with this group, if that is going to be a thing!

Today I went around the cemetery for a quick 1 mile jaunt with a coworker. It is beautiful and sunny out today. It is so beautiful with the flowers and trees in bloom. We have been trying to go for walks daily, but sometimes, with the social distancing, we just haven't been making it a priority. Today, we walked not too near each other, but close enough so that we could talk, each of us on opposite sides of the road. It really was worth it. Our other co worker went out on her own when we got back. We are required to be at work, so I'm not sure how social distancing works between all of us...we just keep our distance from each other. It's a tad awkward, but so far, cross my fingers and knock on wood, we are all well. There are so many unknowns with this disease.

I hope each of you are well too! Do take care! Chat soon! emoticon

Jacquie ~ sorry I missed seeing you'd set us up an April chat thread .. there's so much going on. Thx.

Tawney, sorry you missed the 55 challenge sign-up.

I was all enthused and confident until someone in another group mentioned that 8lbs in 8 weeks was very aggressive wt loss ... now I'm feeling rather unsettled. My competitive type A personality is struggling just at the thought of not making my goal.

But Tawney, if you, and anyone else in this group, wants to do "our own thing" and just see if we can get 5% off in 8weeks I'd l be totally in to that too.

I had to "wake" my WW App up ... goes to show how sporatic my use of the program has been this past month. 3lb gain is proof of it too.
