The Coronavirus has hit my little part of Ohio . . . almost everything is shut down . . . starting to look like a ghost town around here . . . and not a roll of TP or a can of vegetables to be found anywhere . . .
I’m fine . . . my family is fine . . . I have plenty of supplies to last a couple of weeks. Yes, I was caught a little unprepared and I swear I can hear Prince Charming’s laughing at me for not taking his “prep for anything” lectures seriously. Right now my biggest worry (besides worrying that my mom might get sick) is “will I have enough green beans to feed Millie?” and “why the heck can’t I find any canned green beans anywhere?” . . .
The Public Library where I work has closed until early April. Once the schools closed, the kids were coming into the library to hang out during the day. And since we couldn’t keep the kids away . . . and since we have several staff members who are part of the “high risk” group . . . the Director decided it was best to “shut ‘er down”.
Even though the library is closed to the public, there is still work that can be done and most of the staff will be able to work partial hours at full pay during the shut down. I work in the business office and was offered the opportunity to work from home. For the next couple of weeks, I have to work four 4 hour shifts. Two days a week at home, and two days a week at the office . . . I won’t have to work on Fridays!! The library provided a laptop and a mobile hotspot to use as an internet connection . . . I just needed to find a spot to convert into an “office” for the duration . . .
So that’s what I did today . . . converted Prince Charming’s “Ham Shack” in the basement into my new “office” . . . and it broke my heart to tear apart all his ham radio equipment and put it away someplace safe . . . because . . .
And now that I have an organized work space . . . I need to clear out the clutter in the rest of the basement . . . and maybe tackle the spring cleaning . . . and . . . and . . . and
If nothing else, it’s going to be interesting . . .
