Well we are all doing just fine (“we” being myself, my wife, and our 3.5 year old).
None of us has gotten sick, but San Diego has been low in numbers compared to the rest of California and the nation, so that of course could change. But we are not going out much, and both of us are working at home. My wife could do it forever, given her line of work (but she does miss the camaraderie of her work environment). As a PE teacher, it has been interesting. I learned how to do exercise videos and how to create a YouTube channel. And been getting parents sweaty as much as kids.
And, as you can imagine from that, financially we are fine too. In fact, we are better off than we were before the pandemic and recession hit. We had a combined 2019 income of 148,000 and got a full stimulus check bonus. AND a 25% reduction in mortgage payments due to refinancing (yes, we did that).
The way the nation is heading though, this well being may only be temporary, as it will eventually bite all of us as a nation HARD unless drastic action is taken. And it starts with the need to VOTE (so be sure to do it)!
I left here, because there really wasn’t anyone to talk to anymore. Sure, I enjoyed chewing the fat once in a while with Chaski and mrmhead, but that was an echo chamber (you two are smart, so I know you don’t take offense in that, and I know you see it when I say that.). There really wasn’t anyone else to keep things alive for me here - I felt I was talking to a wall with my threads and posts - it became more of a self-edification/education thing than actual real conversation.
If Eagle and Dave ever returned, I would though. The three of us had a storied history on here when together.
Take care everyone, and stay safe.
