Hoping for me to what, though?  I don't think I want to get married because Linz thinks the world is ending.  I'm not sure I ever want to get married at all.

We talked more about it.  She is worried that if the government issues a lockdown order, we could be separated for weeks or months. She wants us to be a single household so that we can be together even if there is a lockdown.  We're not talking about moving in together, but she thinks that if she just does paperwork to say she lives with me, that would be good enough. I'm not sure how lockdown orders work, and hopefully things never get to that stage. But she's worried about the possibility.


Aaaand.... I'm self-isolating, so I won't see her for two weeks anyway.


My co-worker Technical Sales Tom was in hospital (heart attack :( ) and while he was there they tested him for covid and it came back positive. He had no symptoms on Wednesday when he was at work.  And while I also feel fine, I know that the right thing to do is stay home.  Luckily I can do a lot of work from home... I will be in email contact with Good Boss Greg and Ed Engineer, writing the documents and reports they need.

It's possible that he tested positive because he already had covid and recovered.  It's possible that the terrible cold that had me and various others home from work a couple of weeks ago was actually covid and we didn't realize it.

Smart on all accounts.   No need to rush into anything. 

And smart to self isolate.   Dumb of your boss not to have people work from home if they could right from the start.
