Well, the fact that you used the "past tense" is a good start. Next I'd say:
  1. Take a very long, very hot shower
  2. Spray everything you own with Lysol™ (be careful with electronics)
  3. Watch old westerns until you forget everything even remotely related to any SJW nonsense
  4. Buy a large caliber gun, go to the nearest shooting range and unload a few mags
  5. Drink a beer ... or twelve
  6. Find some good looking women (preferably in the "fun zone" of the hot/crazy matrix)
  7. Have them cook you a nice steak dinner
  8. Bed them
  9. Restore a classic muscle car and drive it like you stole it, periodically revving the engine for no reason other than the fact that it sounds effing awesome
  10. Do something involving fire, explosions and a general waste of time
  11. Go muddin'
  12. Make new friends who can get you out of a jam because you overestimated your muddin' abilities
  13. Tell long, boring stories about your misadventures to your new friends around a camp fire in the middle of nowhere.
  14. ...?
  15. Profit
That should do it.

Automatic payments are set to begin next week. Eligible taxpayers who filed tax returns for either 2019 or 2018 and chose direct deposit for their refund will automatically receive a stimulus payment of up to $1,200 for individuals or $2,400 for married couples and $500 for each qualifying child, the IRS said Friday.

IMO its not over until they find a vaccine. When they eventually open for business, infections are going to spike again. If I were to get one I would hold on to it or get more long term storage items for another round of social distancing and isolation.

The first batch of stimulus payments promised to American taxpayers amid the coronavirus pandemic were direct deposited on Saturday, the Internal Revenue Service said.

"We know many people are anxious to get their payments; we'll continue issuing them as fast as we can," the agency tweeted Saturday evening.

On Monday, the Treasury Department said more than 80 million consumers will receive their payments this week.

On social media, some Americans said they'd received payments in their bank accounts, while others said they were eagerly awaiting the checks to land in their accounts.

We received our $2400.00 today and $500.00 of it went to Costco. Glad to see they are limiting everyone to one item by item type so we bought two different brands of butter etc. to get what we would normally buy every other week.
