I've been going through daily temperature checks, masks are worn always (unless I'm outside), and my mental state is a little raw. Management is wondering why our "applied time" is low for April.... but the last two weeks have been very busy. On top of everything else, I've been gathering quotes for replacing the A/C and getting new siding, which adds a little stress on top.

I'm ready for a little hammock hanging, porch camping, outdoor relaxing weekend. Ophelia wants to sleep on the porch and make smores, so I'm all OK with that.

I just need to see some tall trees. I sound like a broken record but biggest damper on my free time is my wife's work schedule.
So I'm stuck home regardless.

My last planned outing was a bust. Not due to the virus just life stuff. So that sucked.

Besides my only opportunity to hit the woods not working out I've been pretty good. Work is no different (besides the mask). Home life is busy, getting new floors and other home improvements. I've been able to go to the river a few times just to get out with the boys. Hitting the range pretty frequently. Reloading is taking a lot of my time, its relaxing and very zen like.

All in all I miss the nights under the stars and unfortunately don't see any outings in the near future.

I was away at work when this started.
I have now been sitting at home for about a month and I am going nuts.
Don't know how y'all have managed to do this from the start.
Need to find something (besides a nap) that will pass the time.

Stay safe, maybe we'll be able to get together soon.

I didn't get a China Virus vacation everyone else did and I got a big stack of work orders with no help. Got to do a little hog hunting a couple of weeks back but I need to get away for a few days

Tried to "camp" in the horse trailer, but the skeeters found me after about an hour and a half.
Shoulda put up a tent.

Nothing better than the sleeping porch, Glamping at its finest.
