What is everyone doing during our self imposed quarantine?


Recommended Posts

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.


How many new productivity acronyms have our creative teams designed to optimize at home work product?

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.

 

I too have been looking at making golf purchases that I don't need.  Guess that's my way of trying to stimulate the economy.

Just a few observations from my families adventures of the past 10 days.

  • My kids have figured out they can do school work on Google Classroom in a fraction of the time they spend in a classroom.
  • My kids have learned that going to school everyday means spending time with friends. Being quarantined means not seeing friends at all.
  • Clients have figured out conference calls are the way to justify their existence.
  • Clients have miraculously learned how to reply all........incessantly!
  • Clients have decided they need every ounce of potential workload in case they are sent home.  Thus reducing timetables on deliverables from me.
  • I have lost what little faith/respect/trust in media I ever had.
  • My wife and I have figured out we made terrible career choices!

If my emergency nines weren't a priority before this mess, they have become a lifesaver.  If not, I may be in a padded white room right now!

I won so nobody is speaking to me and apparently I am an a$$hole.

We had to stop playing monopoly a couple years ago. My youngest daughter is ruthless and the game usually ended when someone started crying....

Usually it was me. 😀

oops, sorry.  So you probably don't want to hear that it's 80 today.  Down side is that it's 80 with 20-30 mph winds if that helps any.  haha

No golf for the foreseeable future. Our course and range were already soaked and hadn’t been mowed in over a week, so there’s no way they’ll get to it after a few more days of rain.
Beautiful days during the week when I can’t get out there!!!

After 3 days of enforced home schooling (all schools closed in UK now) I've had to sort out a fight, send one to his room for detention, and sack the teacher for being drunk in charge of the class! 🙄

My wife and I are both teleworking with the kids home.  Both are doing some online schoolwork.  Why in the world my daughter decided to dig out her recorder (it's like a flute) and try to learn a song on it while I'm trying to do a conference call is beyond me.  My son, has become addicted to youtube videos on mindcraft and youtubers doing stupid stuff (I'm pretty sure watching that is rotting his brain).  We've done some biking trails, hiking trails, a kickball game (the result of which I twisted and sprained my ankle since Tuesday), some family movie nights and game nights - You're looking at the reigning Yatzee Champion of my house...ha ha ha.  There may have been lots of drinking this week...so much so the wife decided she needed to stock up and just left with my neighbor to do an alcohol run.  Not to mention the honey do list that seems to grow like the spread of this virus.  On tap with the bum ankle tomorrow...cut the top of a tree down that's been growing too close to the house, and next week, build a new wall and frame and install a door in the basement to enclose a bedroom we put down there, and I'm sure more beer, wine and liquor.  Somehow, all the neighborhood kids have decided my house is play central too...did I mention more beer, wine and liquor is in my future ?

Probably read the Old Man and the Sea over the next few days.

My wife reached out to a local bookstore she wants to support (we're worried about going on lockdown soon), and the owner told us to email her books we like, and she'll pick out a book for each of us from her stock and bring them out to the car when we show up.  Now that's service!

For the past week, we've been watching our Canadian neighbors pack and head for home. The other day, while walking River in the desert, we watched the procession of RV's headed north on US 95. Our weekly Saturday golf event has gone from the normal 7-8 foursomes to two tomorrow.  Monday's round looks like there will be 5 of us. Our park feels like a ghost town.  We read, take walks, ride bikes, and try to carry on as normal as possible.

I had a good laugh out of these Monopoly posts.  With 9 other brothers and sisters in the house, we had some great games that didn't always end so well.  One of my brothers would get mad when he didn't get Boardwalk and Park Place that he would throw the board so nobody could win.  Needless to stay, we played it when he was gone, or we just didn't play it.

My oldest daughter turns 13 today. Kind of a bummer since she can’t have a party, and the restaurant she wanted to go-to tonight is only open for curbside pick-up.
So, to surprise my daughter, I have set-up a 20-person FaceTime call tonight for 5pm to all join in singing her “Happy Birthday”! Should make her smile...
 

This quarantine thing is really making everything different.   Schools and school events are really hit hard.   Reading posts on SM from friends that their kids college graduations are being cancelled.   My daughter was 2 weeks out from induction into her sorority.   

Can't go see my mother as she lives in retirement apartments and they have banned visitors and asked the residents to stay in their apartments.
