#WFH Chronicles: Am I on mute?

We're six months into this #WFH adventure. Have you noticed that hosting or attending a video meeting still feels a little like herding cats? In the beginning, it made sense that none of us knew what we were doing, because none of us knew wha.....»»

#WFH Chronicles: A different kind of malady

Unfortunately, I have all the symptoms. Shoulders hunched so high they're starting to look like part of my head. Eyes that flit from visage to visage, looking for any bit of connection. Stifled eye rolls piled up so high in the back of my mind they'.....»»

#WFH Chronicles: Time for a mood swing

I'm in a foul mood today and, honestly, it's pretty ridiculous. I have so little to complain about. I'm warm and dry. I have steady work, a roof over my head, good health and people who love me. By just about any measure, I have it good. And ye.....»»

#WFH Chronicles: Time to get the clutter out

A couple of weeks back, I took a vacation. As I've shared before, it was the 2020est vacation ever. It started with a hurricane, ended with an earthquake, and left me with clean closets and cabinets. My office BFF returned on Monday from vacation, .....»»

#WFH Chronicles: What we could learn from our kids

My Urchin has started back to school. It's virtual, which seems to suit her fine. She has always been self-motivated when it comes to her schoolwork, and she merged right back onto the highway without her dad or me having to help at all. Over the summe.....»»

#WFH Chronicles: Revisiting the games people play

I'm just back from vacation and I can't seem to get in a groove. During my week away, I was chased inland by a hurricane and awakened by an earthquake. My cabinets and closets were relieved of half their contents. My laundry room got so organized I ca.....»»

#WFH Chronicles: The field trip edition

I stopped into my office the other day to pick up a couple of things I've been doing without. It was like wandering onto a movie set, or waking up after the Rapture. Like a snapshot of the time before the humans disappeared. My desk looks eerily ou.....»»

#WFH Chronicles: Taking back some power

If someone had announced that last weekend would be officially named Fall Freakout, it couldn't have been more apt. In my home and in homes across the galaxy, families had to make a decision about which school option to choose for the fall and bey.....»»
