I find working from home to be weird, even after almost a month of it from my locked down state.
I’m feeling it, both mentally and physically.
Normally, I walk to work and then spend a lot of my day on my feet. I’m in and out of offices and other areas and people are always dropping by to see me for all sorts of reasons. It’s busy busy. My days can flash by.
I’m trying to separate work and home, but that’s difficult when home starts in the hallway outside my door.
I’m sitting at my computer for long periods of video calls, phone calls and texts and have to remind myself to get up and stretch.
I’m missing items and materials that are in my work office, but I can’t go there.
My home printer died a couple of days ago and I need a scanner.
I’m gaining weight.
I’m sometimes finding it difficult to focus.
It’s not the best situation by a long stretch, a very long stretch.
But then I remind myself of all the people who have lost their jobs in this virus world and I remember to be grateful and stop my whining.
I remember that I’m not sick, nor are any of my loved ones. I haven’t lost anyone to this scourge. I’m together with my M, and I have food, a comfortable place to live in, caring phone calls and texts from friends and family and colleagues, and best of all, I have toilet paper. 😉
It’s a strange weird world and I don’t want to be in it (wah) but there are many alternatives that are a whole lot worse.
