I sure would like to think and believe in this positive message.
Tomorrow, when I go into the office, it may well be the last time in quite a few weeks. My job has lost patience with waiting for laptops that seem as scarce as toilet paper and hand sanitizer and has decided that we must all bring our desktops home and work from home. So with a bit of stuff I must do in the office to make the transition smoother, I will be also disconnecting my equipment and bringing it home, all the while crossing my fingers that it all works like it’s supposed to once I get it all hooked up at home.
M’s working from home has been extended to May 31st. I have no idea how long it will be for me.
I have mixed feelings. I really don’t like the work at home thing. But on the other hand I won’t have to drive every day, which I hate, and can get up later and get home sooner. It’s better for my asthma to stay home. Don’t have to worry about what I look like etc.
But yeah. Not happy. But it is what it is. And I have a job for now so can’t complain.
I got all the Monday flashes done and scheduled for April.
I updated Our So-Called Life. Have not written a single word on the Bang story since I turned in my rough draft to prove I had written 6,000 words a week ago. And all I can say is meh. So we will see. Later this week I hope to update The Carrier if I can kick myself into doing it.
And so today is the last day of March, which turned out to be an absolutely miserable month. I once had such high hopes for it.

I repeat: no pants.
It’s a pain. But I’m glad you won’t have to go out. I worry for you. I don’t have a choice, or even the option, so one of us needs to be safe.
Write what you can, when you can. I’ll be hanging on every word.

You know so many have it so much worse than me, I know. I’ve been using my inhaler more frequently and I don’t know if it’s because I am psychosomatic or what! But yeah not going out is good.

And the setup worked so…excellent

Ignoring the virus itself, it’s so much safer for you to work at home just because of the traffic.
I’m SHOCKED how even though we’re on stay at home orders, every day there are major, horrible wrecks here! You’d think that wouldn’t happen with so much less traffic. On the other hand, maybe it’s because there is so much less traffic so everyone drives faster. I’ve found that to be true when driving late a night – it’s terrifying how horrible some drive under those conditions.
I’m glad you have that option. I hope you adjust to it and you like it more as the days pass.
With the news people all broadcasting from home, the funniest thing happened today. I don’t know if it was a lady’s pet or a child, but there was this huge noise off to the side of her….and she just kind of looked like that Charlie Brown zigzag mouth and kept going. Since I didn’t hear crying, I’m guessing pet, but….

HA HA omg that is funny. The radio guy when I was driving home from the office yesterday was running the music from home and he kept saying that bird you hear is my son’s bird! too funny.
It’s funny you mention the traffic. LA’s Mayor, Garcetti, mentioned he is so happy to see so much less traffic going around BUT that the accidents that DO happen are horrific because now everyone is going WAY TOO FAST. He begged people to slow down and said cops will ticket people for speeding because we need to be safe from that too. So yes, I am super glad to be avoiding the crazies on the road for sure!

It worked, it worked. Now I just have to keep myself from being too distracted from stuff going on around me!

I always had that problem at work, too, though! I’d get off on a tangent and one of the kids would yell, (my last name) story, grab the popcorn! And they’d put their stuff down and sit back and get comfortable, except this one annoying violist who always said, could we just play???

There’s definitely one in every crowd! ha ha ha

I was quite surprised myself as I imagined the absolute worse! But it all hooked up precisely how they said it would and I was like wow, what do you know?!

That is a lovely message. Hopefully gets back to normal soon. We are on a stay in orders now.
Eleni had lug her desktops home from work. She had a time getting hers set up so hopefully you have an easier time and it works like you need it to. 🙂
At least Luna will get her dads home all day for loveys lol
Have a good week! And be safe!

They gave us pretty simple instructions so, I’m hopeful. Hopefully not in vain! thanks 🙂

Good luck with the relocation to home. Hope the transition goes well. Being home does have its perks, including more Luna time, less driving time… more free time to write Spirk! Lol!
Stay well, stay safe. ❤️💚🖖😘

The transition went well equipment-wise! Was an unexpected breeze 😀

Gah, how does that feel? I’ve never had that happen to me before.
