trying to form a routine. 

routine will be key. Kids, whether they know it or not, like routine. There is safety in routine. They have routine at school. So instituting routine at home during this time will be very important for the success of eLearning.

My daughter's SEL (social-emotional learning) assignment today was to do two chores - she washed the dishes after breakfast (we don't have a dish washer at the cabin) and vacuumed. Then she took pictures with her chrome book - bam! first assignment done.

Yesterday I installed the pump on the fuel drum - made in the USA baby!

Holy shit. Have you seen some of the car offers? Gmc is doing 84 months at 0 percent and home delivery on sierra 1500. Others are doing similar things

Thanks for the heads up.  We've been meaning to replace the wife's car.

NJ has also placed a stay at home order effective today.

Annnnnd I'm still going into work.


We were totally looking at the car offers last week. Very tempting. We're probably going to hold out until there are offers with cash rebates

another thing that we can take advantage of now is the mortgage rates. We might refinance to 10 years - the rate was like 2.6 a few days ago

Oh shit. How close is this coworker. I guess it doesn't matter. Hang in there and keep us posted

Oddly enough we refinanced right before all of this hit and got 2.875 on a 15 year.  I considered a 10 year but he said the rate wasn't any better.

Coworker and I share an 8x10 office. I was initially advised by occupational health that I could come in if I'm asymptomatic but I think that was before they knew I had the ability to wfh. I asked about it and both of my bosses agreed that would be a good idea. By next week I'll have been clear from the 2 week incubation period and probably will go into work alternating with my coworker wfh so we don't have to share the same space again (this had been planned before his test result came back). I probably won't qualify to get testing anywhere unless I feel sick.

That sucks jkim :(  It seems crazy that you can't just work from home full time...


In other news, I went to the grocery store today. It was pretty empty, though they did have a security guard at front with the intent of limiting the number of people in the store at a time. At the checkouts they were spacing people out so that they weren't lined up close together (though there were basically no lines while I was there).

They had tons of food. Fruits and veggies were almost overflowing off the shelves. Everything in stock except toilet paper and lysol wipes. They were low on pasta and frozen veggies, but had some. Lot's of meat and chicken. Overall, pretty easy to find everything we need.
