Coronavirus and Grocery Shopping

The coronavirus has literally changed everything. Grocery shopping, work, school and socializing. We have been sick with coughs, runny noses and headaches for the past couple of weeks.

The coronavirus has literally changed everything. Grocery shopping, work, school and socializing. We have been sick with coughs, runny noses and headaches for the past couple of weeks. No, I do not think it is the coronavirus, however, we have been staying pretty close to home so we do not spread what we do have.

Coronavirus and Grocery Shopping

 

Empty store shelves.

Empty store shelves.

In light of this bug and the coronavirus, I decided to try grocery shopping via an express shopping service being offered by one of our grocery stores. By doing this it saved having all of us in the store being sick (except one who has mysteriously remained healthy), or being exposed to other germs while our immune systems are down.

While I am very grateful for the express shopping service, I prefer to shop for myself. Here’s why:

1. The substitutions really did not compare to the original product.

2. Some of the pricing did not match the savings I would have had with the original item.

3. I do not receive a receipt for my shopping trip. Just the credit/debit receipt. How could I confirm my order that had been drastically changed with substitutions and missing itmes?

People are going nuts with hoarding everything from toilet paper, milk to batteries. I could not get a 12 pack of AA batteries (our wireless computer mouse/mice? use them)! Granted, they did substitute it for a 16-pack. Maybe it was because the 12-pack was on sale? But folks, why are they hoarding batteries?

I haven’t been grocery shopping in nearly two weeks and what I had on my list was in line with what I would normally buy, given the sales and the emptiness of certain pantry cupboards. But I could not purchase what I normally buy because people are buying for months, years even, instead of a couple of weeks. The food supply chain has not shut down!

Ok, that was a bit of a rant but I seriously wanted to get that out in the open space that this blog provides. Note to all the hoarders: Save food for those coming behind you for normal every day living!

Maybe this post will come back and bite me, but it is only how I feel today after a not so great grocery shopping experience. Not being able to buy our regular food items will do that to me, wouldn’t it affect you? Is it affecting you?

Share your shopping experiences, what are your stores like, can you get your normal items, etc. in the comment section below.

Stay safe and good health wishes to all!

Getting Back to Blogging

Blogging? What is that? Ha ha. It is hard to believe it has been over two years since the last blog post was written.

Blogging? What is that? Ha ha. It is hard to believe it has been over two years since the last blog post was written. Thank you to the faithful contributors who kept the blog alive up until that point. Life happens. Change occurs. When that happens, blogging takes a back seat to everything else. However, it is time to get some fresh content up on this blog. If the time we sat in front of the editorial calendar is any indication, fresh content will be happening on a regular basis. Ideas are there, they just have to be typed out. Look out blogging world!

Blogging, Life and Friends

Where did everyone go in the last 2-5 years? Life has a way of taking each of us on a journey that is not expected. Families grow, requiring more time of us. People get new jobs or go back to work after being home with young children. Friends come and go. In the midst of life’s difficulties, each of us finds out who our real friends are. The ones who leave, were never really our friends. The ones who stay are to be treasured all the more because they believe in us and hold us up when we can no longer hold ourselves up.

Happy 10th Anniversary and a Fresh Start in 2020

As this blog begins a fresh start in 2020, it is also Faith and Family Reviews ten year anniversary. Happy 10th Anniversary to us! We cannot believe it was ten years ago this blog opened for reviews and so much more. Where did the time go?

It is with a skeletal group of writers that we begin. Who are we? As time unfolds, that will be revealed. For now, it will remain a mystery. Maybe the intrigue will bring us new visitors, who knows?

The Hidrate Spark 2.0 holds 24 fl oz (710 ml) and comes in five eye-catching colors. the bottle is made with BPA-Free Titan plastic and without a straw. This helps prevent breaks and spills.

It even comes with a handy clip carry hook!

This water bottle is not only aesthetically pleasing but it is revolutionary! The bottle helps you drink more water! The  bottle comes included with a sensor stick, powered by two coin cell batteries. (That means no charging to worry about!) When you drink out of the bottle, the sensor measures how much you drank and transfers this info to the hydration app, which tracks your progress throughout the day, week and month. The bottle even the bottle detects when you’ve taken off the cap, so you won’t get any false sips from emptying or refilling the bottle.

What do we think about the water bottle? 

The colors the bottle comes in are very stylish and pleasing.

We also found the water bottle very useful. The water bottle helps you get your needed intake of water. There are many people out there who wish to drink water more water. This bottle is especially important if you need to get fluid reminders for medical reasons.

For adults and children this is a great reminder device! It absolutely DOES help a person reach their water intake goals!

So how does it remind you? Once set up via bluetooth, which is very easy. The bottle blinks when water intake is needed. Once the drink has been taken the drink has been tracked and recorded in the sensor and it will light up and blink the next interval that a drink is needed.

The other special thing about this water bottle is that it syncs to phone or fitbit. This is great because then you can track your water intake or find a lost bottle.

We cannot say enough good things about this water bottle. Were there issues? A few times it said we drank when we didn’t but it is usually on spot. We had a hard time getting the bottle to pair with bluetooth. But once it paired there were no issues. The one thing we loved was it can tell the difference between when you just put your tongue on the water bottle or take a sip of water…it is that sensitive!

The price is a bit high for water bottles at 54.95…but definitely worth the price if you need to up your intake of water!

About the book:

“I’ve taught you how to live; now I want to teach you how to die. You don’t have to be afraid.”

When Becky Baudouin’s mother spoke those words to her, they weren’t said lightly. Her mother had an inoperable tumor–and after months of treatment, there was no hope for a longer life. There was, however, assurance of life everlasting.

Learned in the dark hours of pain and the bright moments of love, the honest insights on fear, loss, and grief that Becky shares in this book are applicable to everyone’s story–including yours. If you’re losing a loved one or facing death, you won’t be alone on your journey: Becky walks with you every step of the way. There are even questions for reflection to guide you to comfort, whether you’re reading on your own or with others sharing the struggle.

In times when hope seems lost, Becky’s story reveals that God is the only source for a spirit’s true healing. For anyone living with the tension of wanting to hold on yet needing to let go, Cancer, Faith, and Unexpected Joy demonstrates a powerful and profound love.

“In Cancer, Faith, and Unexpected Joy, Becky’s mother becomes my mother; her grief, my grief; her hope, my hope. With a combination of emotion, vulnerability, and dailiness, this book offers practical comfort and wisdom for anyone in a place of trial or suffering.”
–Jane Rubietta, international speaker and author

About the book:

An exciting story of survival and spiritual renewal

When four college friends graduated from the University of Northwest Oregon, their lives stretched before them, full of promise and vows to stay connected. But life has a way of derailing well-laid plans.

Now they haven’t spoken in twenty-five years. But against all odds, three of them have found themselves back in the same place–at their alma mater, wondering how they got there. When they discover their fourth friend, Hope, has died, Jenna, Ireland, and Vicky decide to embark on a wilderness adventure to honor her memory–and for secret reasons of their own. Jenna wants to show her husband that she’s more than a helpless, overweight, middle-aged empty nester. Ireland wants to get back to the nature she loves and hide from the charges being pressed against her. And Vicky wants to show she cares for something besides her ministry–and put off the disaster waiting at home for as long as possible.

They never bargained for the dangers they face in an unforgiving wilderness. Now they’ll have to work together if they hope to make it home alive. While the three women fight to survive the elements, their toughest battles may be with themselves.

We found that the size and functionality of this bag makes it great, not only for everyday use but for sporting events, concerts, amusement parks and other venues where you need a functional bag but one that is not cumbersome and heavy. This wallet bag is PERFECT!
