Amazon order

I have some things in my cart and I can't make myself push to check out. Some things I absolutely need (water filters- way past the replacement point) and the other items I have needed for projects for a while but put off buying for various reasons. The biggest reason is that I don't want to do the job (moving rocks...)

If I push buy I am committed to doing the projects. What if the weather doesn't cooperate so I don't get them done during this off time? I can't do the work over the summer- it is just too hot. Of course, supplies are nonperishable, and storage won't be too tough. It won't take much space.

I need to do it. Why is it so hard to push buy?

You may not get some of what you order. Amazon is suspending non-essential products so they can prioritize the health & safety items people need:

If it makes you feel any better, I ordered everything I needed to make a sea glass Christmas tree when we discussed it here in December. It’s all in a closet.

I'm just playing armchair psych here, but in pushing place order you'll be admitting we're probably in this situation for a long stretch and that makes you anxious.

As soon as my district announced that we'd probably be closing (this was around a week ago), I made three lists:
- work related projects to do at home
- home-related projects I've not had time to do
- supplies for fun stuff I might want to help pass the time

Then I hit amazon and placed my order. Then I had my first freak out.

We'll return to normalcy, but it's stressful not knowing when that will be.

Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

I have a ton of stuff in my Joann cart and feeling the same way.


As far as Amazon, that article is talking about third party sellers sending stuff to the warehouse not actual Amazon deliveries. Thy are prioritizing what people can send in to be sold, not what they’re actually selling to consumers.
They also are looking for 100,000 new workers to be able to get orders out.

Interesting, bookgeek.

I made similar lists, too. So far I haven't done but one small thing from my lists. I speculated on my walk that when it was time to return to school I won't have any plans. My plan for Friday (our first day off) was to finish my year plan - which I have to make up because we have never had this position before. Now I know I will definitely have to cut things off my list, but until there is a better idea of when we actually return, I am not dealing with it. If I do it now and have to change it again... You know.

My jobs that I have put off are all pretty involved and/or heavy manual labor. I think that is why I am putting them off. Hitting buy will make me have to do at least one of them.

Part of the reason I want to go to our other house is so I can get out of these chores.

ETA: I went for it. Hit purchase. Confirmed delivery address and payment method. Now looking at the dates for delivery. Don't want to wait until Saturday - which could be Monday if it goes through the post office, not UPS or Fedex.

Same delays here Kahlua-Prime shipping is supposed to be 2 day but I got a delivery date 4 days from now. I tried changing the deliver address to an Amazon pick up location at a grocery store since that usually makes things a day or 2 faster but no luck I wont have my charger until Friday. I wish I hadnt left mine at work
