I feel like I'm getting into a better work groove. My "desk" set up isn't ideal, so last week it was daily migraines and now that's turned into 4 days of severe neck pain and I can't turn my head well. I found out my chiro is still open, so hoping to get in today and get some relief. I've been trying to get out with the kids for walks daily and last night we did a nice long walk and did some killer stairs. Then DD had a breakdown because her roommate told the landlord they're not renewing their lease so she's freaking out about where she'll live.
I'm glad you're going to be able to get some relief, doriswe. Sorry to hear about your DD, though.
I'm doing pretty well, mostly because I'm going to work like things are normal. I've been able to keep my anxiety down most days. Last night I baked browned butter chocolate chip cookies. I've currently gotten past a lot of the feelings I was having early on about lack of communication, etc. My company even sent an email that they're trying to get temporary raises (minimal, but something) to give to everyone who's working during this time. We'll see if it happens, but the fact that they're doing that makes me feel better about the company.
I set some firm boundaries with the guy I've been dating because last week he was getting really needy, or at least came off that way, which was draining. Like multiple long texts, telling me "I'm thinking of you and feeling for you and hope your day gets better" when I wasn't having a bad day. Almost a little hero worship-y, if that makes sense. He's been better since we talked about it, but I'm not sure this is going to last long-term.
hugs doglove. You'll be WFH when you start back to work, right?
I'm feeling run down, and blame it entirely on stress. My company has been deemed essential, which means everyone has twice as much to do as before (I'm suddenly providing daily updates on orders and expected delivery dates and trying to reroute trucks to pick up products before our vendors close down, etc). While I'm WFH now, because my company is essential, they could order me to report back to the office at any time. My boss keeps saying "well, I think we'll be at home *this week*" and then we'll decide on next week. I'm not good with uncertainty - our state is under a stay at home mandate through the end of April, and I'd really appreciate it if my company could just say "all you office workers are def going to be at home until the mandate is lifted".
Monday's and Tuesdays are my wknd. Yesterday I did absolutely nothing, so today I am trying to be semi productive. It 12:45 And i have grocery shopped, did a load of laundry and took my 1st nap of the day. LOL! Naps are a priority man.
Going to try and clean my office. 1 thing I am jealous of is seeing everyone's clean and organized home office spaces. Yes it is still fresh and new and everyones area will be a mess soon but I only look at one day at a time right now.
Yes chalupa, I will be WFH until at least the 17th, but hopefully the 30th with the new order. I do have to go into the office to login to my computer and pick up plans to do work at home, but there is not many people there and closed to the public. Our poor admin is stuck there every day because development (residential and commercial) is still happening in our town.
