Ignore the frenzy. Robin Lebowitz of Plantation is frustrated by misinformation and speculation circulating about the storm. She says she has a plan for riding out the storm, is sticking to it, and is ignoring all the chaos around her. “I’m deflecting all the drama,” she said. Lebowitz said she also is trying to be extra patient to control her stress. “I’m also using the kill-them-with-kindness approach when someone is not so nice in the supermarket or gas line.” Mother of a teen, Lebowitz said she has her preparations ready. “I have a case of water, a case of wine, dark chocolate ... I have all my supplies. I’m good.” Other South Floridians say they are staying off social media to keep their stress under control. Alexa Elliott says she is only checking the news to watch the latest Hurricane Center updates and avoiding hype that will stress her out.

CSG Folks, 

I just saw this subject/CSG Forum mentioned on the highlights page where forums are listed.  FYI! 

Good Subject  <G> 

To cut down on my stress levels in general I have been taking weekends OFF/ Limiting the news.   

Lots of Hurricane Dorian news this weekend. We are riveted because 90yo Grumpy MIL is staying with us from Vero Beach, FLA.    CAT

You're watching it a lot because she wants to see it?

Linda and All,    

Hurricane Grumpy 90yo MIL has moved in and wants to go back home to Vero Beach  ASAP!    

The weather news has her attention more or less in between napping off and on all day long. 

MIL goes to bed around 8pm and gets up around 4am.    GOD GIVE ME GRACE HERE!  

Keep Calm and Stay Safe Out There,   CAT

DAN,  

I do appreciate your kind and considerate suggestion!   <G>

Watching more football sounds like great plan. I like it. I really like it.  I am also losing my mind but HEY! that is OK. 

Grumpy 90yo MIL toddled off to bed at 7:30pm.  She will be up bumping around the kitchen by 4am.    

Now I am watching  Louisville v Notre Dame on ESPN - so far a pretty good game. <R U watching this?>    ROLL TIDE!   CAT

No, I am watching the U.S. Open with Rafa Nadal playing Marin Cilic, but thanks for reminding me. I'll now be switching back and forth during commercials.
