Name something GOOD that has come out of the CV isolation.


Recommended Posts

I'll start.

I am now fully in LOVE with InstaCart (and similar services) !!!  I realize that they had been around for a while prior to this madness, but since the plague, I have realized what a WONDERFUL service this is.  I no longer have to go to the grocery story and I LOVE IT !  Today I was able to get 3 cases of beer, 2 bags of potting soil and nifty new slicer/shredder (oh....plus some food) delivered.  Only in America !!!   I intend to keep using this service even after the plague has subsided.


What an awesome example of good old fashioned Yankee capitalism !  We WILL get through this, stronger than ever.

I can focus on my passion projects and hobbies. I am actively writing again. I really wanted to be a writer when I was younger but life got in the way. I have been lucky enough to write a short story every now and again over the last decade. But to write when inspiration strikes has been amazing. Since I am working from home until 2021, I might even be able to finish my children book and collection of short stories.

I guess also that the color scheme I chose for my living space is on point......you would think slate grey and grape candy colored walls would be detracting but its quite soothing.

Saved about 250 miles worth of gas per week between our two cars.

Not as much benefit as it would be for some because one is a hybrid getting 50+ mpg.

^^^^ This!

We haven't filled up.since we left for the airport March 5

Downside: haven't been anywhere since we returned March 16  😖

I'm learning to be more patient, especially with companies that might not deserve it (United for example). I've also realized how wasteful my wife and I are ... Paper plates, napkins, toilet paper, etc. We have learned to conserve. 

Of course saving money without eating out, me not commuting (wife still does) and all that.

I decided to add 600 sq/ft to my garage.  And since a tree fell on it damaging one of the eaves I was able to get it done during lock down because it was covered under essential construction because the crew had to come out and repair that damage.....and since they could come out....they knocked out the addition....and loved me for it because otherwise they weren't working.

I have learned just how important traveling is to me and how lucky I have been to be able to travel without restrictions. I know I am going to miss a lot of the things that make vacations so great but at the same time I am so thankful for the memories. This whole pandemic has helped me appreciate the small things. And I have had to reintroduce myself to cooking. 😂

I get to wear funny t-shirts 7 days a week instead of 2. Also, I think my job will be more open to flexibility with telework - they already were pretty flexible, but i think if I asked to work part time from home in the future, they wouldn't blink. We got 2 puppies right at the beginning of this, and I'd like to be able to keep up with their potty training by being here more.
