…to quote Elton John. The world changed sometime around the first of the year. Early March, I got word that the Miva conference in California was being postponed until August. I wasn’t surprised. I was getting a little nervous about flying mainly due to the lack of hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes that I would have packed for the trip. Then the day I was supposed to travel to California, the first case of this virus was announced in Alabama. Things had already started getting crazy by then.
I’ve been working from home for over 10 years now, so this is nothing new to me. My normal routine had to be adjusted a little. I tried Walmart’s Grocery pickup (3 times) and it failed each time. So I shifted my shopping day to Tuesdays and go first thing in the morning. I have always shopped with a list, now I get just is what is on my list.
I’ve made hand sanitizer (although it’s only used after I get back in the car after a shopping trip), made masks for family, checked on out of town family and worry about friends.
