Lisa’s Week In Review: 3/16/20 — 3/22/20


I’m stuck at home due to the Coronavirus but I’m healthy, I’m locked in with two of my favorite people and my favorite cat, and I’ve got movies to watch, books to read, and music to listen to.  So, I’m not going to complain.

Fortunately, I’ve also got this super goofy picture of Joe Biden to keep me amused:

“Folks, a reverse mortgage is just a good and safe way for seniors to protect their assets while keeping their homes….”

Seriously, it’s the little things that keep you going through a crisis.
