I'm good Jeff. Good to hear from you. Take care my friend XXX
Sorry you feel lonely, Jeff. We're all here for you though xx
Likewise Jeff. Although with the heat wave I've not exercise for 3 days
We miss you, Jeff!
Come back, Jeff
Seriously! MP isn't the same without you, Jeff.
I know I'm lucky. I have a job. My dog gives me some outlet. I can still get outside and run. But it's hard to keep things in perspective.
Anyway, I hope you're all getting through these days as best you can!
Pretty much same here. I can work from home, but being alone brings new kind of weird to the everyday life. When/if this'll be over, I will get large beer, I will sit in the place where there are people around and I will very slowly drink and listen
BIG HUGS XXX
Hang in there, Jeff. I hope spring awakening will help.
Thank you, friends!
It's a tough time for sure. But we'll get through it
Hope you are feeling better Jeffbear
Miss you, Jeffbear! I hope you are ok.
Thanks for sharing that, Jeff - enjoyed them in my youth:)
If you're stuck inside with a family member, remember how lucky you are to not be alone. I'm grateful for my dog, at least. But the loneliness is defniitely getting to me.
And I was so unmotivated to work last week. Wasted so much time. Now super stressed about the work that has to be done. Not sure how I'll be able to do it or how I'll be able to focus.
So sorry you are feeling this way. I know it's gotta be super difficult when you are alone. I am so thankful for my family. Really hope things can look up for you soon!
Hi Jeff, I have found it very difficult too. I guess we just need to try to keep going. X
Yeah, we are limiting our news time. It was so depressing watching the numbers rise. Hope you get to feeling better, Jeff. 💚
Happy hour over Zoom sounds fun! Hope you start getting better sleep, Jeff.
I'm glad you have the dog too. I am sure that the majority of people struggle with motivation working from home (change to routine, lack of social interactions, less accountability to management/colleagues).
Are you still getting out to do some running? X
Glad you have your dog. Pets make things a bit easier to deal with when they are around.
Hope today is going better for you!
Well-done for keeping active, Jeff!
Sending love, Jeff!
Don't worry, Jeff, pandas are here for you
We love you, Jeff! I feel the same way about prepping my whole life for this. I hope you are able to find ways to enjoy your time. xx
*big hug* I'm having all kinds of feelings and emotions, too. It's a tough time. We gotta be strong.
Sending love, Jeff! 💚
Pandas love you Jeff! We might not be blood family but I like to think of my panda bears as the ones who are here for me at the lowest of the low. The very opposite of Fairweather friends.
Great idea going for a run. I continue to be amazed at your perseverance with it and how you can motivate yourself to get out there!!
You're so right. Take care :*
Stay safe, Jeff!
Hard to find context right now. Too much doom and gloom, not enough reality and balance.
it's not helpful to give in to the panic, but still it's a serious thing. the contagion rate is fast and high, in italy (my country of origin) people were careless and now the whole country is shut down.
so, i know it sucks, but until a cure is found we should avoid people especially when it's a lot in a closed space. the economical consequences of a country shutting down are more scary than the health concerns.
we're at 1500 cases now and today they proihbited us to get in the bus from the door in the front
I'm quite lucky because I'm out in the suburbs and it's quite a rural area. I also don't like crowds, or to mix with people. Gloves on hands, scarf around mouth, keeping away from humans and not touching things. Hope you stay well Jeff.
These are scary times. I go to town 2-3 times a month & always to the grocery. Scared to have to face crowds. I live in a rinky dink rural area with lots of dumb people & saw people wearing masks 2 weeks ago. Will be going again on Monday.
It's a tough thing. I don't want to stay inside unless it's required. Bars and restaurants are clean, and the risk was there with the flu. If it spreads, things change. For now, I'm not giving up real life.
Our fun run tonight and St Patty's race Saturday were canceled. Blah.
Thanks for the perspective, Corrado. The person who has it here flew back from Rome. Sad... It will be controlled, I hope!
Sorry to hear the race was cancelled. That's a bummer.
Crazy times. I'll be carrying on as normal otherwise I'd go nuts.
Glad you're having some fun but sorry to hear about your cold. Hope it passes soon
Dreamt I was losing my dog. I don't know if I was dying or he was. But it made me very sad. I gave him lots of hugs this morning.
Dinner/drink pairing tonight with a few friends. I'm looking forward to that!
Even warmer today! I can't wait for my run tonight, with the time change meaning I don't have to wear the headlamp and reflective gear. Couldn't get up to treadmill this morning, though. Too sleepy. That's ok!
Yaaaay! Love to see this green, Jeff. I'm going to be sure to go outside & enjoy it, too!
Running in the dark doesn't sound like fun, well done for keeping at it!
Had a good run last night on mostly runable trails. Poor night's sleep, though. Dog kept barking at something. Eye is bothering me. Need to make an appointment that I don't want to do. Blah.
The world is a sad and scary enough place without a pandemic like this. Though I suppose without it, the news would be all political junk.
