Still been working as I'm a maintenance technician at a shipping hub for one of the big 3 and deemed essential... for now. We're busier than ever, hopefully stays that way as I am certain I'd be first in line for layoffs.

But I haven't been going anywhere other than for supplies at the moment. I have plenty to do; all 4 vehicles need a serious detailing, mower deck needs rebuilding, etc. The Tacoma still needs some work getting it back into shape after 140K hard miles. Several painting projects need done on the house, along with a dresser and chairs that need stripped and redone. Garage needs some serious organizing, but I have a feeling that'll be last on the list. Also have a strange feeling I'll need to pull the engine/trans out of the SLK for some resealing and other misc. work.

Been working, business as usual for me. It is nice having much less traffic on the roads, less stressful days. Can't afford to be off work.

Wife and I are both working from home some days and traffic is very light for both of us when we do have to hit the office.
Obviously fewer shopping expeditions, which I've found easy to adjust to.
We did make a wine run yesterday and the place was empty. We picked up a couple of cases of decent reds.
Red with our steak and fresh green beans dinner tonight or something sparkling?
I'll ask wifey which she'd prefer.
Anyway, we are spending more time at home and fortunately we don't get on one another's nerves at all.
Plenty to do here as well as plenty I've continued to put off.

Laid off for lack of work right now too. Catching up on some needed car maintenance and repairs as well as home. At least 2 more weeks home is what we are being told. We are directly connected to Ford but get to live off unemployment if they pay. Union pays the Ford teammates 90% of their normal pay. Not much incentive to get back to work on their part. It seems the unemployment people are telling me this is a natural disaster and they don't have to pay unemployment at all due to this. Very confusing and makes you want to just give up on the pain the put you through. Also supposed to be looking for new job but being told old job will be back in 2 more weeks. mad

I am going out of my mind, the weather has been lousy and does not allow for any garage work. The garage is my home away from home.

I try to do some cleaning in the basement but it bother my asthma and had to stop it. mad

I'm not a doctor, nor do I pretend to be one on this or any other thread.
Seems pretty hypocritical to me

Well there's a difference between stating what you're doing to pass time as opposed to misinformed rumors and speculation about a virus.

My thread wasn't about "rumors and speculation about a virus".
It was simply about what you are not doing anymore (and as a result how are you passing the time).

I went back and found your thread, I see your point.

Today I set up a new TV antenna-- amplified and rotating. It's so awesome it picks up a little translator of the ABC affiliate so I get duplicates now.

Fixed the license lights on my truck-- LEDs, just the right amount of light and in the right pattern.

New clothesline. Old one held on by a thread. Perhaps a metaphor.

I work for a pipeline and somehow have been busier during this. One of the terminal operators is in quarantine because they went to Mexico the week before so I have been helping the remaining one at that terminal fix all the stuff that keeps breaking. Once I get home I help the wife regain her sanity from being with all 5 kids all day. 2 to 9 years old.
