I hear lots about disagreements (even violence) and cabin-fever and unrest.

I personally enjoy being at home. Do you?

If you hate it, why?

If you love it, why ?

I like being home with my books and pets and garden and movies and crafts and spouse. I don't want to go out if I don't have to. It suits me just fine.

Is your home a comfortable place for you?

I've always been a hermit so it's not much different to me. I don't like being afraid to go get groceries though. That's pretty #ed up.

Yeah....I prefer to be out in my yard and not worry about it. But I work in "essential" retail, so I have to balance that. Have not been going shopping except as absolutely necessary. Remembering how to cook!

Yep.
We'd rather just be at home.

I don't.
I still work every day.
If anything I've been more busy for the last month since this nonsense kicked off.

We have lots of games and puzzles and projects and interesting stuff to do. I'm cool with it.

I work five days a week. Yes, it's been crazy busy for the last 3 weeks. Now it's starting to taper off. I guess people have their "essential" stuff organized at last.

I'm running out of "Where's Waldo" audio books... so cathartic...

I listen to them, while feeding the livestock.

Idaho is weird.

A little too comfortable I fear.
Not short of anything and I can get to the local shop for the basic stuff.
Don't really get out much these days anyway but I'm in the countryside so no problems if I fancy a walk etc.

More books than time to read them. Tons of music. Radio and of course a phone for this kind of thing.

I'm grateful that I'm so lucky and have a lot of sympathy for those who are not.

I love it! Of course, I partially retired on April 6th, but I'm getting a ton of stuff done....on my car. Fine tuned the datalogger, wrapped the turbo pipes in lava cloth, same with the headers and I suppose I'll tackle the exhaust pipes and the turbos next. I might rewire the fuel system too.

I've got a lot of time to read, binge watch shows, listen to the radio, drink beer and BBQ!!

It hasn't been easy staying drunk for all of “mapril” but I’m holding my own.

LOL!!!
Yes, I reduced my hours at work to "six and out" per day --

so now I get home 3 hours earlier than usual. Soon as the weather lets up I'll try to go spend those 3 at the barn and messing with the horses.

How many are at home with you?

Seven souls (unless you count the fish).

Four dogs, two cats, and my spouse. All entertaining.

I have been working from home since March 16th. I don't mind it but I do miss the personal contact a little. We have WebEx and Jabber so we stay in touch frequently. From the sounds of it we won't be going back anytime soon but that's ok, I'm saving gas and can sleep in an extra hour.

I'm also putting on a little weight because I'm not walking as much. It has been cold out for the last couple of weeks and I don't want to get chilled. Plus I've been fighting off a head cold on and off for a while but nothing serious.

It was unfortunate to be laid off but these past weeks just being home with my family have been trying, stressful, chaotic, busy and absolutely wonderful.

If been able to read stories to my spawn before bed. Have deep and lengthy conversations with my wife. Start and actually finish projects on the 'stead.

Would trade them for anything. I'd hate to applaud government incompetence but almost have to!


Also squandering all my reddit karma and probably a ban soon. They seem to hate independent thought.
