Working from Home is the New Reality

Work from Home Reality

Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00445

For the foreseeable future I’ll be working at home. So, part of that is a nightly check in with my group. When we do it we do it with Google Meetings Hangout and so there is video. We goof around with each other and if we have masks we wear them. It gives everyone a chuckle before we get the meeting started.

I’ve also made some changes to my office setup for the week ahead. I’ll be doing some livestreams each day and was thinking about building a giant LEGO set. I have the Voltron set and I want to build that one. I think if I do one lion each day it will be a lot of fun. I’ve been inspired by what Mo Willems has been doing each day. He does lunch doodles for kids and he’s wonderful. You can see his show below.

For all that I’ve griped about work I am happy with how they have been handling this virus stuff. Working from home has been good. The kids are feeling safer that I am home. I like being able to put them to bed each night. I do get at least one night where I can’t but for the most part I can. I’ll take it.

Eight Years on WEON

While I have not quite hit eight years on the Weekend Overnight shift we will be eight years old on Monday. The shift began on February 4, 2011 and I began in May of that year. It was a year of big changes with a new job and a new child and new house the very same year. Maybe 2019 will be another year of big changes.
