First, tightly managing (restricting) potential contacts, which leads to hunkering down, planning grocery deliveries, etc;.
Then, doing neglected maintenance and projects in and around the house; reading; boning up on computer and device management and up-dates; and comforting my wife, while she does same with our kids, their families and grandkids – via new and challenging remote tele communications. M 🙂
Glad you’ve found ways to keep busy! Finding tasks around the house is also on my list, too, just not immediately. Hope you and your family are safe and enjoying virtual time together!
Focusing on other things is a wise choice. I’ve been doing that too. 🙂
