What have you learned during COVID times?
« on: October 17, 2020, 01:25:25 PM »
What is one thing that you've learned during these COVID times?

Please keep politics out of it.

Ive learned that I really like working from home.  I thought I would go nuts being at home so much and never seeing my co-workers but Im really enjoying the freedom of not having someone constantly looking over my shoulder. Also enjoying not having to commute and having an extra hour in bed every morning.

One thing I learned is how much I need other people in my life.  These days we can't get close to each other, shake hands, hugs are out.  I not allowed to hug my own daughter because she works in a lab and does a lot of testing.  I really miss that. :-[  The whole thing is pretty depressing.

I've realized that I like eating outside more than I ever thought I did.

I learned just how little I actually need to go to a store for things. I tend to let them build up and do them all in one sweep rather than here and there like I used to.

Also, Walmart's grocery pick up is awesome! I save so much time and now only get what I need.
Life has three aspects: Paradox, Humor, and Change.

Paradox: Life is a mystery; don't waste time figuring it out.
Humor: Keep a sense of humor, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure
Change: Know that nothing stays the same.

Go to sameday.costco.com to get them to deliver by Instacart. It's also awesome!

I learned that having good neighbors is a blessing.  Back in March, my wife and I had to quarantine because I was exposed to someone who tested positive (ironically, it was in a training course about remote learning!)  I texted several of our neighbors to let them know since at that point we didn't know how easily the virus spread.  They were terrific, offering to pick things up from the store, asking if we needed them to walk our dog, etc.
