Working from Home

Another week dealing with the Coronavirus Pandemic. More and more states are asking people, even those in necessary fields to work from home if possible. Mr. Dollycas works for a mobile x-ray company that sends x-ray technologists into nursing homes and assisted living centers as the Operations Coordinator. Starting tomorrow he will be working from home. His entire work station will be delivered early in the day and he will be setting up shop directly behind me. This should be very interesting. I really enjoy my alone time, just me and the dogs. The kids are already taking bets on how long this arrangement will last before one of us has to move to another room or I change my work hours. 😀  Daughter #1, Daughter #2 and Son #2 are all still working at their necessary jobs using proper safety protections as are the x-ray techs.

As you have all probably seen grocery store shelves are still having hard times staying full. Thankfully, our daughter-in-law works at a store and was able to get us a good supply of toilet paper and daughter #2 has been stopping at several places around the area to stock our shelves at home with our favorites and needs.

We need to remember these store clerks, managers, and others are on the front lines so that the rest of us can shelter at home. Most have been advised to wear masks but with the shortage that is almost impossible. I am so proud of the women at my hometown store that are making their own fabric masks to keep themselves and their co-workers safe. I see stories of this happening everywhere. People taking action where they can is so uplifting.

I do my best to keep politics off this page but our government has really dropped the ball regarding this virus and keeping us and all the people on the front lines safe. In a country as wonderful as this one Personal Protective Equipment in hospitals and for other services should be a high priority as well as providing all supplies necessary to take care of the sick and supplies to test those that may be carrying the virus. This administration has been more reactive instead of proactive from the start and we see how well that is working. Please stay safe. Together we will get through this.

  1. It will be truly interesting for you and Mr. Dollycass! Good luck!
    I agree wholeheartedly with you re gov’t dropping the ball…all due to hubris and greed…shame on them!

  2. It made me sad to see members of Congress (both parties) who sold off their stock before prices fell. Very sad. I hope we can all act with the best interest of others. I know it is difficult.

    It would be difficult to have my husband with me in the same workspace. Good luck to you! And thank you to all who are working in this dangerous environment.

  3. Stay well. This administration has failed us on so many levels . In Ohio we have been closing things for weeks but got the shelter in place order yesterday.

  4. Good luck with your new co-worker! My husband and I have worked at home for years — he’s in the basement and I’m on the second floor. Works great!

  5. A friend recently recommended a book called Jane Doe. I wonder if it’s part of the series you’re reading? I’ll need to double check on the author now 🙂 Take care of you and yours!
