Working from home: Day 1.

On Friday, Grey Midwest had a trial run of all employees working from home. About half way through the day, it was recommended that all Grey Midwest employees should work from home until further notice. So this morning was the first official day of my working from home. Thankfully, we have our terrific little work space setup on our second floor, and it will finally get put to good use…

I pulled in some dog beds from upstairs and barricaded us in the office…

And I got to have some of my giant Lunchables I got at the grocery for lunch…

Everything worked really well. And it was so nice and quiet. Our internet was able to keep up with all the video conference calls and meetings. The dogs were really good all day. And I continue to make small adjustments to my working from home set-up but I’m really feeling it so far…

It’s definitely not terrible. I think I could get used to working from home. πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ’»β€οΈ

For the time being, Genifer still has to go into the office to work. Hopefully, she’ll be able to work from home soon too.

Checking in on the WyzeCams.

It was a very rainy night as you can see from our third-floor WyzeCam

The new iPad that Genifer got me for Christmas came with a free year of Apple TV. So we finished watching the first season of The Morning Show and also watched the latest episode of The Servant, both on Apple TV. While we were watching those on our TV, I was also watching our Mavs get thumped by the Lakers on a little tablet.

It seems that almost everyone has a streaming service. Right now, we do YouTubeTV, Netflix, Disney+, PrimeVideo (free with Amazon Prime), Hulu (free with Sprint), Apple TV (free with my iPad), NBC Sports Gold (for Premier League), ESPN+ and Pluto TV (Pluto is completely free). And they all have apps for our Amazon Fire TV sticks and all of our mobile devices.

I saw a bundle deal where you could get Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+ for $12.99 a month. That’s a great value. Disney is worth it just for The Mandalorian. And I just love ESPN+ for all the extra sporting events. All the soccer alone makes ESPN+ worth it for me. And I’m on my third trip through the thirteen seasons of Ancient Aliens on Hulu. It’s one of my go-to shows to listen to at work.

What’s funny to me is that out of all these streaming services, the one I think I watch the most is Pluto TV. There are just soooo many random channels on Pluto. I love their surfing channel, 4KTV and the slow tv channel. It’s really a pretty incredible service considering that it’s completely free. There is so much stuff.

Anyway, it was such a grey and rainy Friday. It was perfect for binging watching shows. πŸ˜€πŸ“·πŸŒ§οΈπŸ“Ίβ€οΈ

Checking in on the WyzeCams.

Meteorologists were predicting that Cincinnati would get a “wintery mix” starting at 6pm tonight. And they weren’t very far off for once. It started snowing right around 6:15. We watched the snow fall from our third-floor WyzeCam

It’ll be interesting to see what it looks like when we wake up in the morning…

Brrrr. πŸ˜€πŸŒ¨οΈβ„οΈβ€οΈ

UPDATE: And I forgot to take a photo of the snow in the morning. But I’m guessing, it looked quite a bit like this.

As I was walking home from the bus stop, I was checking in on the WyzeCams

Genifer made this delicious turkey meatloaf for dinner tonight…

And after dinner, we shut off the lights to head upstairs and our tree looked so pretty…

It’s always good to be home. πŸ˜€πŸ“·πŸ¦ƒπŸŽ„β€οΈ

Checking in on the OscarCams.

Oscar was sleeping on the sofa. We love seeing what Oscar is up to on the OscarCams. We were all pretty lazy for the rest of the day. πŸ˜€πŸΎπŸ“·β€οΈ

Checking in on the WyzeCams.

Genifer’s new Audi Q3 sure does look nice out in front of our house. πŸ˜€πŸ“·β€οΈ

Checking in on the WyzeCams.

I got a motion alert from our third-floor WyzeCam this afternoon, and when I checked it, there were literally no cars parked on our street in view of our camera…

I don’t think I’ve ever seen our street empty before. πŸ˜€πŸ“·β€οΈ

It is late night or early morning?

It started thundering and lightning and then monsoon pouring tonight late night or maybe super early this morning. When I got up to look outside, the streetlight across the street from our house was out, and that made our street pitch black. Until the lightning hit. And it would go white for a split second before being light as day for a second and then back to pitch black…

I probably stood there and watched it for a good five minutes. And the storm was so close. You’d see the lightning flash and a second or two later, there’d be a huge thunder boom. As soon as the storm started to blow over, our street light came back on…

I think everyone was wide away after this storm. πŸ˜€β›ˆοΈβ€οΈ

Checking in on the OscarCams.

Oscar was waiting for us to get home on the arm of the sofa again

It’s his new favorite place to wait for us to get home. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

It must be Thursday.

After work this evening, we stopped at Queen City Radio for a Whip Classic burger, a cheese coney, and some fries. We think QCR has some of the best fries around…

On our way home, we checked in on the OscarCams to find Oscar sitting up on the arm of our sofa waiting patiently for us to get home…

What a silly head. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŒ­πŸŸπŸ“·πŸΎβ€οΈ
