My admiration for my colleagues who work primarily from home grows as I do this longer. How do they do it? Is regular work from home better organized and less stressful than pandemic-caused work from home? I don’t know. But I know that I’ve been a lot more tired and stressed by the end of the day over the last two weeks than normal. I spent four hours on phone/webex meetings today, and by the end of the day I didn’t want to see or speak to another human being.
I’m pretty pleased with my office nook, but find that I prefer standing to sitting. I need to get one of the anti-fatigue mats though.
Unrelated, the brother-in-law’s birthday is approaching and I know what to get him…but it won’t arrive in time due to virus-related shipping delays. 😦
In terms of entertainment, I’ve managed to watch bits of different comfort movies/shows all week. Different Harry Potters are airing each night, and I’ve watched some of my favorite episodes of GBBO, as well as bits of North & South. I’ve gone through and bookmarked a bunch of things to watch, but haven’t started them.
Want to read Robert Reich’s new book, but I can’t buy any new books right now unless I finish/cull other books. The library is usually my alternative for that, but they are closed for the duration.
Got my census reminder, have done my civic duty.
I’m going to have a glass of wine and fall asleep early.
