    I was smiling when I read that :)
    I ride the Tobacco Trail from vault toilet to vault toilet. Nice to have pee breaks :)

    Just , emptied the camper of cleaning supplies, bleach spray, lysol wipes, and hand sanitizer. Counted up the extra TP rolls. Lol I think this stuff is more needed at work right now. I also took out the baby wipes, 4 packs! Score. I will make some homemade wipes for work, eaither add diluted bleach or alcohol. Probably the bleach as i have more of that on hand. The things we think of when were sitting home doing nothing.

    Working on the popup. It needs a bit of TLC. Nothing major, just bringing the maintenance up to date.

    We are enjoying skiing as our snow dwindles down. Of course many more are on da dogs blog. Note, this is how socialized dogs act in public.

    God bless and keep her and you all. She will be in my prayers. I moved from a bedside oncology/medsurg nurse in 2006 to infection control. Wondering now if they will call us back to bedside. Iowa Governer waived requirements for inactivated and lapsed licensed RN/LPN to go back to work this week. Be safe.

    I've been busy doing nothing this past week. The kids had their official Spring Break last week and will continue (sort of) this week as the schools work on how to proceed with online learning. They will not be going back to the buildings until the fall. I really wish that the weather would cooperate so we could open up the pup and start working on a redo.

    Maybe you can come up and camp with us this summer?? Hope so! We'll be down to lake st. Catherine NFS campground as soon as the snow is low enough. Not gone granted. This is just north of Crystal falls WI.

    Love seeing those dogs jaw play! They definitely are comfortable around each other.

    Something says they love camping as well as skiing.

    Rapidly going insane. I was officially laid off on the 20th. Working in the airline industry when NO one is traveling is, well, not good.

    Laid off since the 20th but I’ve been home since the end of February, just the way my schedule worked out. I have 3 kids and my wife is also home. It’s pure insanity and I seriously wonder how much the national divorce rate will increase due to covid...

    I painted our master bathroom. I pulled the old canvas off my E3. Now I’m waiting for warmer weather so I can do some painting on the interior of the E3 and put the new canvas on. After that my fingers are crossed for an early spring and I’ll take the kids boondocking for a few days to save our sanity.

    Thank you very much for your well wishes, it's appreciated. If you go back to bedside, be careful, and good luck. This stuff is very quickly getting out of control. Instead of learning from the mistakes that China made, and what happened(ing) in Italy, North America is following the same path instead of doing things differently to prevent the same outcome. People who don't follow the simple rules to avoid spreading it are now called 'Covidiots'. Be careful, Stay healthy.

    @justwork, maybe you should change your handle? :D

    We not only have Mason and Charlie; but for some reason Charlie's brother (by birth) Skylar, and my daughter's baby (and usually the teens she married into), are at my house weekdays when I'm trying to WFH. The boys were hogging what little bandwidth we have out here, playing Fortnite and other junk when they're not doing schoolwork, until I issued a "no online games during working hours" edict.

    I have two weeks off in April. so I hope to fix a few things in & around the house then. And get some camping in.

    keeping busy - I am finishing a rolling cart that stores under our office desk when not in use. Except for the ball-casters (not shown) - I used what I had in the garage, nothing else needed from the store. The purpose of the cart is to hold all the reference books, maps etc relevant to planning a vacation. And we can easily put them aside (on the cart) when not in use. And drag the whole thing from room to room as needed.

    Nice! Dh put new steps at my mom's so she can get in and out easier. The old step was really big (it has been there as long as I can remember) and was difficult for mom to do now at her age. Wish I had a pic., maybe later.

    Got a good deal on a new 26gal air compressor and sold my old one within a week, so now working on swapping to high flow footings and adding a new drier/filter to the lines. I can't get over how quiet it is compared to my old one.

    Is it made by California Air Tools? I got a small one at Christmas and it's quiet.

    So now I've been deemed non-essential, so I am replacing the kitchen and dining room floors. Ran up to the depot yesterday before the statewide shelter in place order became effective. Hope I got everything I need!
