    When all this "stay at home" stuff started, there was an interview with Dr Oz and he said to use this time to reconnect with your spouse and grow closer as a couple. So we have been doing a lot of "reconnecting"

    But when I am working from home, well, I need to be working, so there is little time for distractions.

    So much so that I have started going to the office 2 or 3 days of the week to get some work done.

    Too many distractions at home :rolleyes:

    Our business is considered "essential", but everyone is working from home, except for the guy that is doing the shipping/receiving work.

    So when I am there, it is just the two of us. He is in one side of the building and I am in the other side.
