What are you using as your "coping mechanism" to get through this?

I’ve been trying to stay on the positive signs of this mess that we’re in right now. So, let’s talk about what we’re all doing to get through this jibba-jabba. I know some people are following Bluto’s advice, and drinking heavily. I don’t drink (never have), so that’s out for me. My wife has actually been drinking less ... maybe she’s just rationing.

I’ve been working as much as I can on my house, with the supplies I have on hand. It’s so tempting to run out for a yard of mulch, or some electrical conduit and junction boxes, but I’m not gonna do that. I’ve taken a crappy wall down in my basement, and cleaned a lot of it out. I drew up plans for what we’re going to do with it long term.

What I’ve really been enjoying, is building Lego. I’ve built one set, which was an amazing set from my childhood. What I really love building though, are customs of my own design. Thankfully I stocked up on pieces before the shit hit the fan. I’ve built all of these models since the stay at home order was issued in my state.

The dump truck and the lawnmowers are old models, but they’re riding on a new trailer. Everything else in the picture is new.

I also put this power sports shop together. Most of what’s in the shop is old, but the shop is new, including the lift.

When I’m building a Lego model, everything else leaves my mind. Everything. It’s great. Unfortunately I’m running low on pieces again. I do still have a couple of sets to build at least.
