The three of us have all found ourselves working at home in the past several months, rather than the on-site, in-office situation we were previously used to. We’ve enjoyed some of the obvious perks — PJ pants all day everyday? Love it! But how do we really feel about our makeshift home offices, and what’s it like starting a brand new job remotely? Work life has changed drastically for many of us in the past several months, and this week we talk about some of the strange new ups and downs of working from home.
Did you start the quarantine with a to-do list a mile long? Same. Now is your daily to-do list more like “survive the day and don’t eat everything in the fridge”? Samesies! Listen to us chat about our expectations for working from home with kids, quarantine, and furlough… and how that’s changed over time.
This new safer-at-home lifestyle has us talking about how each & every one of our relationships — spouses, children, coworkers, extended family & friends — has changed, practically overnight. This week we share some of the more interesting & fun results of this, as well as some of the more trying ones (*cough* kids *cough*).
On this episode, we all talk about how we are all coping with the stress of COVID-19 and being under quarantine. Danie and Nicole talk through how they are processing some tough news they received from work, Carrie talks about how she’s handling working from home and trying to homeschool, and we all use this episode as a mini-therapy session to talk about ideas on how to manage the changes and the new normal we are all dealing with.
Our first self-quarantined podcast! (And honestly, we’re pretty proud of how well we did.) We each get comfy in our own homes (extra comfy in a closet for Nicole) to dig into the oddly timely topic of invisible illnesses, how prevalent they actually are and how hard they can be for others to understand.
