The bored at home / COVID19 / Working from home thread

Do to a woman at work having a friend who tested positive, I've been teleworking from home since Tuesday. I have since organized my shed, organized kitchen cabinets, and have gone mountain biking to enjoy the weather. I will be teleworking for the foreseeable future as we are just in the initial climb of this curve.

I'm going to run out of things to do. I also have nothing to install on my car so that's no good. I think I will start painting and installing some closet shelving for the heck of it.

I totally forgot.... Being at home is making me order mad stuff off Amazon, which isn't good. Mtb stuff for my bike... Wedge pack, bottle holder, bike hoist, etc... Lol.

I would be working from home if Amazon would learn how to properly package monitor cables. Alas, soft packaging fails them yet again!

If we can work from home, we're super lucky. If you're used to it, no sweat. If you're not, it's a learning experience, says this old high school Latin teacher.

Working from home is pretty normal for me. I usually only do 3 or 4 days in the office, and 1 or 2 remote.

Now, trying to work from home with my wife also trying to work from home, and our 5 year old daughter home all day since schools and daycares are closed down... That's a whole other story. It's enough to make me want to rip my hair out.

Heard that. My gf's place closed entirely so she's home but not working which makes her incredibly bored and wanting attention. Meanwhile I have to keep working....it's not going well.

Today was supposed to be my first WFH day, but I spent 6 hours chasing issues with the VPN on the company laptop. What a giant pain that was.

Amen...same situation except with three daughters instead of one...lol! Thank goodness for Gigabit internet and Netflix, but they still get restless. Nothing like being on a business call with a child yelling "That's my crayon!" in the background. And thanks to the grocery stores, PB&J with chips for lunch is getting old fast. But one of my twins found a cure, so, we are good...lol!

My new home office has a view and fresh air. Cat-6 cable is taped to the floor, running from the router to my garage. I'll probably crawl in the attic and make a permanent drop this weekend.



I count myself very lucky that I'm able to work from home nearly as effectively as I can from the office, and that we currently have contracts, projects and deadlines that are largely unaffected by this crisis.

Checking in. Wifey and I are both on mandatory work from home for 2 weeks, and school has been cancelled for at least that amount of time.

We don't really have an office, which sucks, and the kids have taken over the kitchen table--which is fine, because they're occupied. The wife claimed the couch, and I'm sitting on my weight bench using my pool table for a desk, which isn't doing my back any favors.

On the plus side, we have plenty of alcohol, food and toilet paper :)

Oregon res here.

Not on a mandatory work at home yet but will be by Monday I am sure. I work with wine so no shortage of booze here.

I do love how my friends all laughed when I came back from East Asia a over a year ago and immediately bought a Bidet... who's laughing now B!
