Working From Home

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you pretty much know that americas workforce is working from home minus the essential people. Medical staff, grocery stores, truckers, police, fire, i hope im not missing anyone if i am please forgive me, the rest of the people are being laid off or simply being paid to sit at home to try to stop the spread of Covid-19.

While i know this will help a bit i know it wont completely stop it as there are too many idiots who think they wont get it, its a cold or a conspiracy thing.

I know this isnt typically what i write about but hey its on my mind why not.. Ok enough of the intro and onto the show.

Monday: I setup my laptop at the kitchen table and had a beautiful view of the street and the farm across the street. The sun was shining in and felt, oh so good. Then the sun was shining on the table and i had to put a towel there as it was blinding. Next close the blinds. Not sure when it happened but i started getting a headache maybe from the sun… Later as the sun was overhead i could open everything back up. This setup didn’t work as my kitchen chair is wooden and uncomfortable to sit on for 8 hours. I threw a pillow on it, that helped a little but now enough.

Tuesday: I decided to use my mobile computer cart. I disconnected the desktop and connected my work laptop. I sat on my comfortable Ikea poang. This was much better but i had to sit forward or reach for the keyboard and mouse. Also im using a 32″ TV as a monitor and it was seriously bothering my eyes.

Wednesday: I setup the cart in front of the couch. Much much better. I noted that i may have to visit the office and pickup a monitor this is still bothering my eyes. I am comfortable on the couch, i put the heating pad on my lower back and yes this is better. BOOM! My computer crashed and rebooted. Whats this? The screen looks better? AH! Dummy i said, i need to start the laptop while connected so it picks up the proper resolution. Gotchya wont do that again. 🙂

Thursday: Feeling a little lazy and tired today. Im not going to closeup the couchbed ill just sit at the edge and work. At lunch i fixed it because my back started really hurting trying to sit up that long. Damn. Everything else is good and my headache is finally starting to subside.

Friday: Oh yes. I think i figured this all out everything is working well. Its been a very long week though. My migraine is gone, im comfy on the couch, and to add to it work has quieted down a little.

Friday evening I had some groceries ordered from an online service i use and they cancelled. I was really looking forward to the fresh fruit and veggies i get, so i looked and my local grocery store had a spot open up for pickup. I placed my order quickly. Why was i waiting for pickup/delivery spots? Because I am #immunocompromised and my life counts. #HighRiskCovid19 so I dare not take chances.

So ive actually been trying to order groceries online. they dont have any open slots for pickup or delivery. so since i use https://misfitsmarket.com heres a code if you want COOKWME-SY4GZN and https://imperfectfoods.com code: http://imprfct.us/v/jim_316 the 1st save you 25$ (i think) and the 2nd 10$ the 2nd has more options.
