Sorry Cooke.

Mostly boredom. I am a homebody anyway but as soon as anyone gets stir crazy we hit the town and eat. Bought a car specifically for that purpose. Especially when the weather is nice. Which is now.

We are doing our part to support the local establishments but still.

First world and all...

Thanks Westley for a thread to get this off my chest.

So sorry, Alan, I hope that things do get better. And I am well aware that there is no point in complaining even the slightest bit because lots of people have it much worse.

My wife's grandfather passed away last week from COVID-19 (one of the first few confirmed cases in our state). My MIL has had some symptoms this week, mainly a fever and a cough, but those seem to be going away. GMIL was quarantined in the same room with GPIL for two weeks while he was sick, mostly because she was in the room with him for a few days before he was diagnosed, not because she had shown any symptoms at all, and she still is not showing any symptoms despite that, so that's a positive I suppose.


On the brighter side, working from home wasn't really on the table before this even though it would have been super helpful due to childcare concerns for my older special needs son, but the past two weeks have proven to be productive enough that I think it will be a valid option in the future.

  • Wife fell down and broke her arm recently. Being WFH, I joined her on the walk; so was able to provide immediate assistance (including getting in to see the doctor).

  • Tying everything above together, there's help from a variety of sources for my wife navigate working without an arm that she usually has access to.
Ouch that sucks, hope she feels better soon.
