    Fortunately, I am able to work from home. Unfortunately, that means I have to work...while at home.

    My gaming PC is sitting here not doing anything while I work on this Surface laptop all day.

    Finishing house renovations, as I was caught halfway through.
    Unpacking boxes and have my gear prepped for tomorrow.
    My ISP will not come anytime soon to hook my fiber, I am stuck with my 3 DL/1 UL connection.
    But the world doesn't end for that, I have so many things to do...
    Also, German classes online are a PITA

    My work is closed. I am at home. Not the same thing as working at home. I am in a high risk group as I am in my '70's. Virus cases are in the next town over. Does not feel like much of a vacation.

    After two weeks on Canary Islands I'm quarantined for two weeks - voluntarily, it's recommended. Lots of magazines to read and recorded tv programs. And this thing called Internet. Tens of recorded movies, too.

    --Reading/watching more news than I have since 9/11.
    --I washed, cleaned and thoroughly sterilized my car.
    --I went through all my PC parts bins, re-organized and tossed obsolete/useless items
    --I've been procrastinating fixing a Subaru Outback head gasket so I intend to tackle that soon. (same with "the garage")
    --People are toilet paper crazy. (?) Me, I go to the weed store every few days and buy mass quantities, anticipating it's imminent closure.
    --I can't seem to get into gaming, but the last couple days I've been playing Plague Inc, killing off the planet. It keeps my mind off of the virus.

    Clearing the backlog of older video games mostly far as gaming is concerned, dog owner too so storm, rain, snow, cold or the real problem of people not picking their trash up he still needs his walks ha ha.
    (Birds are coming back though, part of that is on them and the err dog-drops well that's probably universal sadly.)

    Not much else happening here although this little situation has changed a couple of things and who knows what will happen over the next few weeks depending on if it gets worse or whatever is next.

    EDIT: Oh yes shopping is a experience long queues of people buying mass amounts of hygiene products at least so far no shortage on anything too important but who knows how that will change.

    Our condo has 2 cases of the Covid-19 (same house). The risk for me is not that big (I think) as the affected unit is in another block
    so we dont share the same lift or lobby but we do go in. Nevertheless, im forced to work from home as precautionary measures just in case I develop symptoms


    I really hope some good news comes out soon and the global situation/sentiment turns out for the better

    occupying my self my back catalog of game and looking at the YAY and and slowly getting more worried, last i looked at that we were at 2200 before that it was 800 and now we at 6500+ and we talking ever other day in coarse of week the number went up from 800 to 6500.

    ATM I more worried about my mom have one of her dumb idea despite know better, and tell my dad to get there daugther in NJ at there other house so she stay here with us so she not "alone". Which would be very bad idea and my mom knows that cause I dont get alone with there daughter, As i no longer refer to her as my sister anymore and wont. Likely hood of a week going by let alone months going by without something bad happen is zero.
