My husband and I are both at home, so we decided we'd paint the house. We had been talking about doing it spring break anyway. And we aren't busy, we just have to be available to answer any questions or fix issues that come up.
We painted the bedroom this weekend. And called a painter today. :)
(To be a little fair, the other areas to be painted have high ceilings, some of them over stairs.)

I started in the garage yesterday and have made several list of things to do. Hopefully I can get it all completed

I’ve been working on a flip house. Spent yesterday undoing stupid things whoever had put an addition on the house had done. Work some people do makes me shake my head. Should be the last of the unmessing things up I have to do. Have started putting 1st floor back together already.

After 20 hours of overtime this past weekend trying to get everything paperless, I’m now working from home for the first time in my life (not sure for how long, we had a major layoff on Friday in response to NY governors executive order). It’s odd being by myself and not talking to others. I wonder if I’ll be more or less productive from home.

My husband still has to go to work as he is employed by an essential business. I’m grateful that he’s still employed but at the same time I’m not thrilled that he has to be around others so much. We are taking precautions wherever possible but it’s still a little scary.

Stay safe everyone!

If you force yourself to be busy - this is the great time to do all those projects you kept putting aside - and keep a schedule, you can keep yourself pretty busy. We are actively using slack as a team communication tool, and we have zoom for video conferencing. We also have a jabber as another chat tool, although I use it more as a softphone - it rings my landline at work on my computer, so I didn't have to forward calls to my cell phone (although I can still set it up.)

 

I have huddles with my team everyday - and what I started as a check in the last couple of days have been full on "this is what we need to do temporarily because of this new directive" so it's keeping them informed and on top of things. Others have done virtual teas/water cooler breaks, virtual lunches - everyone just gets on zoom and chat at set times. One group set up a shared google doc and people are just pasting in photos of their kids, pets, etc - things you'd normally talk about/share in person, just in a digital format.

 

We don't know how long the shelter will last, and California has been the most aggressive (well where I live, we called it first..) so we are doing the best we can.


GO BRUINS!

Oh my gosh, I know exactly where you're coming from! Although we've never flipped a house, we have redone ours. You start out thinking it's just going to be a simple thing, then this turns to that and then that has issues too. Nothing ever goes as planned! Good luck!

Thank you, it just shocks me the things people try to cover up. I've said since we started doing this that these houses we redo have to be something I would be fine with living in with my family. To me that means EVERYTHING needs to be done right.

It’s certainly been a crazy year so far...I can’t help wondering what April will bring.
