1. I may run into former neighbors in the store or through Facebook, but other than that, I don't.
2. We chat over the yard fences and wave, but not really talk to them.
3. I'm tired of unprecedented times, the new normal, social distancing, and any commercial or news story that announces there is a pandemic as though it's a breaking news story.
4. I don't go out of my way for yoga classes but I have found tai chi which I like much better.
5. Drained.

1. I am Facebook friends with a few former neighbors. I keep up with them that way.

2. We are in a rental house right now for a few months while our new house is being built. We've only been here about 3 weeks. I've waved at the neighbors on both sides, but everyone is still keeping their distance due to Covid. When we move into our new house, my 92 year old grandmother will be my closet neighbor.

3. My 9 year old has started saying "Yeet". A youtuber he watches says it. It drives me crazy.

4. No, I've tried yoga but just couldn't get into it. I am more of a walk/run on the treadmill or take a Zumba class person.

1. Only really through Facebook. We live very close to our old house so we run into them in the community.

2. Only to say hello. We don't really know any of them very well.

3. The one I am seeing on social media is "I/We did a thing". I think that's so silly.

4. I really do like yoga. An acquaintance of mine is a yogi and she's doing a lot of classes on Zoom that I've been taking. It's helped me a lot through all of this mess.

5. Frustrated

1. Do you keep in touch with former neighbors?
We have lived in the same place for 14 years. When I was single years ago, I had a neighbor in my apartment complex who I became good friends with. I was there a year then got another teaching job back in the general area where I grew up. We kept in touch for about six years after that then lost touch when AOL buddy lists were no longer a thing because that is how we would communicate.

2. Do you talk to your current neighbors?
Not if I can help it. One is a nasty lady who used to complain about every little noise she heard and everything else. The loud family across from us who fights constantly is not pleasant either. The 95 year old man who was president of our condo association was the only one worth talking to. I think his family moved him out to stay somewhere else during the pandemic. I don’t know if he will ever be back or not.

3. Are there any words or phrases that you are tired of hearing lately?
During this time my husband keeps using the same phrases that drive me up the wall. Anytime Trump or any other political leader wants to open something quickly He says “itchy fingers.” Anytime something is going on that continues to evolve he says “ Stay tuned sports fans”. When states were starting to open and maybe too soon he said “ Guinea pig away”.

4. Do you like to do yoga?
No. I prefer aerobic exercise.

5. Using one word, say how you are feeling right now.
Ok

1. Christmas cards exchanged with former neighbors and occasional FB.
2. I frequently talk with neighborsóprobably because Iím out and about as a walker.
3. I was not thrilled yesterday to hear our Governor, who I like, repeatedly use rigorous in describing the newest learning plan.
4. Occasional yoga, but itís not really my thing.
5. Iím feeling HOPEFUL.

1. Not really. One neighbor ended up being a guy from the same teeny tiny town where I grew up. Small world! We keep in touch a bit.
2. We do some things with one neighbor (our kids are best friends) and DH is buddy's with a neighbor a house over. The others we just wave to now and then. Maybe some small talk in the driveway.
3. "Huh?" I may murder my oldest child before long
4. I did. Then I got fat. I still like to try some here and there, but it's hard when the fat keeps you from getting in positions
5. Sad

Do you keep in touch with former neighbors?
I tried but eventually they fade away. One I considered a very close friend and she just moved a town or two away. But she is not good at reaching out. I miss her.

2. Do you talk to your current neighbors?
Very much so. We all look out for each other.

3. Are there any words or phrases that you are tired of hearing lately?
Tik-Tok, hugely and bigly, pretty much anything related to that man.

4. Do you like to do yoga?
I do a few poses to stretch, but not as a full session.

5. Using one word, say how you are feeling right now.

1. keeping in touch with neighbors ó no. Big introvert here.

2. Talk with current neighbors ó casual, to say hi or switch mail/pkgs that were delivered incorrectly.

3. Words Ií m tired of: Covid deaths.

4. Yoga ó would live to be able to do it, but my balance is weird and itís hard to do some of the movements.

5. One word to describe me right now: anxious.

1. Do you keep in touch with former neighbors?
I still talk to Hot Mess Neighbor sometimes. I only see drug neighbor virtually when his mugshot shows up in the newspaper. My only other neighbor I ever actually knew still lives next door to my mom. He lives in the house where he grew up. He mows my mom's yard.

2. Do you talk to your current neighbors?
I interact with one on FB pretty regularly, and her mom works at a local restaurant. New neighbors who live in drug-neighbor's house talk sometimes. I've known them longer than we have been neighbor's though.

3. Are there any words or phrases that you are tired of hearing lately?
For some reason "social distancing" really gets on my nerves.

4. Do you like to do yoga?
I have never tried it. I need a class called "yoga for the old & inflexible".

5. Using one word, say how you are feeling right now.

1. Casually except for one who remains a close friend. She only moved five minutes away.
2. All the time. Some casually but two all the time.
3. Narcissist. It does not correctly fit every ex, boyfriend, boss or friend who acted like a jerk and/or rejected you. It is quite correctly used as a psychological diagnosis for he who must not be named.
Blessed. The people I know who wish everyone a blessed day have rarely been a blessing to anyone.
4. Yes, but I only do it online. I miss Tai Chi and other classes at the Y. I also miss the elliptical machines there.
5. Discouraged

1. No. It is a condo development and relatively transient. My closest neighbors have lived here a long time, as have I. I would keep in contact with them if they moved.

2. I talk to some of my current neighbors, not all. I admit I do not know the names of everyone.

3. I am tired of anything to do with the pandemic: social distances, flatten the curve, etc.

4. I do not care for yoga.

5. Bored.

2. Only the rare time we may pass by at close range, then it's a nice HELLO!

3. Just tired of anything that has to do with people NOT cooperating with helping to get rid of COVID.

4. Never really tried it yet.

Normally I switch font colors, but I realized on this one, instead of switching the font call and inserted a quote for all of my answers! I guess my mind is on other things.

1. Do you keep in touch with former neighbors?
Yes. We lived in quarters on post when my dh was in the Army. We are on the opposite sides of the country now, but we can keep in touch through Facebook.
2. Do you talk to your current neighbors?
Yes. The people across the street and on one side are very nice. We have some "crazy" happening on the other side. It's complicated. The police were there twice this week. They haven't been here in a while.
3. Are there any words or phrases that you are tired of hearing lately?
All of the rhetoric coming from the White House. Just done with it.
4. Do you like to do yoga?
I tried a DVD once. It did not feel good at all. Now with my knee the way it is, I am sticking with walking and the exercises to strengthen it.

1. Nope; I never knew them.
2. Same as above. I guess people around here prefer to keep to themselves! The day I moved in, the neighbor on one side of me came over and introduced herself, but I have literally never seen her since. We must just have opposite schedules.
3. I'm very tired of the mask debate.
4. Nope, never liked it. Even back when I worked out a ton, I tried it and felt like I was wasting my time and needed to do something that burns more calories. I never found it to be relaxing or enjoyable either.

3. Are there any words or phrases that you are tired of hearing lately? Wear a mask and social distancing [do we really need to continue the obvious].

4. Yes! I just started in January and I really enjoy it!

5. Content. Just finished a remodeling project, so now we're just enjoying it.
