What is everyone doing during our self imposed quarantine?


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Work for me used to be about 45% home, 45% seeing customers, and one day a week in the local office (Fridays, when our consultants aren't traveling and we all want to hang out).  Now it's 100% home.  Most of my peers are geographically dispersed, so we had just started weekly Virtual Happy Hours about six weeks ago.  How prescient was that?  I'm going a little bananas being off the road, but everything is virtual.  It's tough to make connections over the phone and video conferencing, but that's our new normal for a while.

All of the consultants on my projects are working remotely.  I've heard that we have just a couple out of our 500+ consultants that are still showing up at up at customer sites.  I'm hoping we can pull all of them back home.  The rest of the company (consulting is only about 500 out of 12,000 associates) are working from home, all around the world.  Most of the company actually works remote every day, so we're lucky to have a great remote work culture.

I'm playing whenever I can with my younger daughter.  Even though the older one is home, she doesn't want to touch her clubs if she's within 50 miles of our house.  She's stricly a vacation golfer now.

It turns out, my life was pretty quarantined, and I just didn't realize it. We homeschool the kids, so that's remained unchanged. And I normally work each day from my study in the church, where I

Today my wife decided “hey, let’s play a family game of Monopoly!” I won so nobody is speaking to me and apparently I am an a$$hole. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I'm putting and hitting off the matte into a net in my back yard. I have to admit fellas. I'm not doing well. I'm pretty extroverted and feeling really anxious. on top of that I'm divorced and am away from my kids. Were isolating them because they have immune difficiancies. I have to talk to them only by FaceTime and thru a window. May seem a bit ridiculous but better safe than sorry. I can't wait to hug them.

hang in there, keeping the kids safe is the number one goal here!

So as some of you may know, I am a teacher.  The gov sent us home for two weeks, however I can tell you I see this going on much much longer.  I have talked with a lot of fellow teachers and we are all thinking that we either go back after Easter or we don't return the rest of the school year.  This is crazy!!!

As I'm on vacation in Florida I'm only getting sporadic reports on work. It's changed twice in 3 days. All public are banned from the building. We went from doing one day on, one day off to 2 weeks on 2 weeks off, 2 different teams. I'll be very surprised that I don't get a self isolate order when we get back like my wife has already.

Probably put in more hours per day that if I went to the office since I lose track of time. 

I've been working longer too, especially if you consider the lack of social interaction that happens when in the office.

Work.

On the fun side, I bought a trampoline and a piano for the kids. Just set up a chipping net in the backyard and putting in the living room.

Catching up on Netflix series I had left somewhere long ago.

Curious about the new Lamkin grips! I have the Sonar on some clubs, and these look to have a similar pattern in a wrap. I’d like a little more cushion, like Golf Pride CP2s, so let me know what you think about those when you get them on.

Practicing out in the yard today. Slight breeze, currently 73°, getting ready for a run...

Homeschooling kids is no joke... I commend anyone that does it full time.

Planning on a 3.5 mile run when the wife returns from hers.

Then working on an essay later this afternoon. Probably read the Old Man and the Sea over the next few days.

Stay healthy everyone.

I don't have a ton of experience with it but I did I put one on my driver and the demo 7 iron I had built.  

While I don't want to comment solely on the honeymoon period, I will say that it is a nice feel.  This version of the Calibrate still lets me play without a glove and has a nice "squish" but isn't so spongy where it messes with your head.  

 As crazy as it sounds, I never realized how much I missed having a ribbed grip.

Working from home, which is not uncommon for me, but also as you might expect on a travel restriction.   I typically travel around 40% with work.  My wife just recently got a promotion with her hospital, that changes her from working 3 12-hour shifts per week, to a standard 8-5 managerial role, with expectations to be available for night shift personnel as well.  Since she works at a hospital, she is still required to go into office each day leaving me with a 1, 3, and 5 year old at times so it's been tough to stay focused.  

Trying to putt in the basement and make focused practice into my putt out trainer as I go. Also set the net up in the garage so I can at least keep the golf muscles free and try to make solid contact without making swing changes.  Watching some golf vids on youtube like others and trying to to buy clubs/items I don't really need right now.

My managers are going a step further and requiring video calls.  I've been on 4 this week and each has been as pointless as the last.
