I am happy to say that working from home has its advantage

  • Transportation
  • Morning Coffee
What I miss:

  • Having a morning conversation at the cafe
  • Seeing people on public transportation.
What a minute these two are equal. I guess I will need to adjust. The sad thing that some people have already been layoff from work and that is hard to hear. The Coronavirus has affected people's health and the economy in just a few weeks. It times like now that we need to look hoe the government and see their reaction to their community and the action the will take to repair health, education, and the economy. I am hoping we being to see some reaction that has concrete answers to this pandemic.

DIa VI Trabajando de la Casa- COVID-19

DIa VI Trabajando desde la Casa- COVID-19

I returned to work today, and to my dismay, it was the same as if I was in the office. I meet with my supervisor we discuss the day the only real difference is that we net via video conference. The governor of the state that I live in announce that as of 12pm tomorrow and a stay at home until April 7, 2020. People are starting to feel isolated and needing to contact people. The news is very informative becuase it keeps people up to date on what is going on around the world.

What I learned today:
  • Case globally are increasing 
  • Medical professionals from Cuba are in Italy assisting.
  • It snowed in Massachusetts.
  • Beaches are closed
  • Scholl remain closed
  • Hosptial are overwhelmed 

To keep my self and family in functional space, I did the following:

  • Morning exercise routine with family
  • Breakfast drop-in 
  • Work from Home/ Children Google Classroom assignments
  • Lunch 
  • Back to work form Home/ Children Google Classroom assignments

Dia VI Ningún País, Ningún Ingreso, Ninguna Edad o Raza está Exento del COVID-19.

Domingo con COVID-19 

No country, no income, no age or race is exempt from the COVID-19.

This is a bilingual blog English below/ Este es un blog bilingüe español a continuación 

Hoy es domingo, y las noticias y las redes sociales son siempre desalentadoras para encontrar soluciones para el Coronavirus en los Estados Unidos. Los servicios de adoración religiosa fueron vistos a través de Facebook en vivo con enlaces web para la placa de colección. Parece que todos han tomado la medida para garantizar la seguridad, pero aún encuentran algunas normas en la vida cotidiana. La conversación dominical se ha limitado a conferencias familiares y de video y llamadas telefónicas. No es lo mismo, pero las personas están explorando más formas de mantenerse conectados. Para aquellos de nosotros que tenemos familia en diferentes partes del mundo, es increíble que tengan la misma preocupación y que este virus sea testigo de la conciencia mundial. Lo que todos estamos aprendiendo es que ningún país, ningún ingreso, ninguna edad o raza está exento del COVID-19.

Hoy necesitaba un poco de aire fresco y fui al patio para prepararme para la jardinería de primavera y noté que el perro de mi vecino entró al patio con ganas de algún contacto humano. Supongo que la ansiedad de estar en la casa también está afectando a nuestra mascota. Parece que mis otros vecinos tomaron una pista para sentarse afuera y tomar un poco de aire fresco o simplemente limpiar sus patios como lo hice con la distancia social en primer plano con un saludo para saludar.

Regresaré a trabajar el lunes después de mi primera semana en casa bajo COVID-19. 
Trabajar desde casa comienza el lunes.

Today is  Sunday, and the news and social media are ever daunting of finding solutions for the Coronavirus in the USA. Religious worship services were viewed via Facebook live with weblinks for the collection plate. It seems that everyone has taken the measure to ensure safety but still finds some norms in everyday life. Sunday conversation has limited to family and video conferences and phone calls. It is not the same, but people are exploring more ways to stay connected. For those of us who have family in different parts of the world, it is incredible that they have the same concern and are witnessing this virus unfold to global awareness. What we are are all learning is that no country, no income, no age, or race is exempt from the COVID-19.

Today I needed a bit of fresh air and went to the yard to prepare for spring gardening and noticed my neighbor's dog came into the yard wanting some human contact. I guess the anxiety of being in the house is getting to our pet too.  It seems my other neighbors took a  hint to sit outside and get some fresh air or just clean their yards as I did with social distance at the forefront with a wave to say hello. 

I will be back to work on Monday after my first week at home under the COVID-19 Homebased. Working from home starts on Monday.

Dia V de la Coromavirus - Fin de Semana

Fin de Semana con el Coronavirus 

It was great to hear China has gotten a handle of the Coronavirus. It is unhearted that other around the world they see a rise in their countries' cases. In a recent report from CNN, the data demonstrated the following :

Fue genial escuchar que China ha manejado el Coronavirus. No es sincero que otros en todo el mundo vean un aumento en los casos de sus países. En un informe reciente de CNN, los datos demostraron lo siguiente:

Today is Saturday,  I followed my weekend routine minus teaching my Saturday school

Dia 4 Vendura al Super

Dia IV Homebased- Safety

I made it to Friday Day 4 of being home-based once again. I went to the supermarket today and finally witness the bare minimum that is actually available. I guess I never thought in the USA you could ever see something like this.

I am sensitive to all the posts via social media; this is becoming very difficult for people to bare. There are many posts asking people to connect to see how they are managing each day. I also noticed therapist posting for 15 minutes check-in, social media workout session, and YouTube posting from schools. Some told me today safety is all we have now, and as I thought about their comment, I agree.

What I learned today:

  • There are more tractor-trailers on the role of trying to meet the food demand
  • The USA president state that they may have a medication for the COVID-19
  • The USA president may implement a spending stimulus plan for families to reinvest in the economy 
  • Some states in the USA is putting in some relief plans for small business

What I did today:

This was a relaxed day.
Looking forward to my next week's work from home but first I need to enjoy my weekend.

Coronavirus Day3 Dia II

Understanding Day II of the Coronavirus

"Living My Life One Day at a Time"  

Wow, being home had its challenges and rewards today. I see that everyone in my home is enjoying being home together, having more meals together at the table, and making time for more family conversation. Today was an interesting day becuase the sun did not shine, it just rained and stayed cloudy. One of today's highlights was that it was trash day.🚚 I guess seeing the bright color of the trash truck brought some joy to the ever gloomy day.
The streets are tranquil as a  late-night hour. I find myself continuing to adjust my stay at home to avoid the COVID-19.  

I like to keep myself informed and today I saw that there is a rise in cases of Coronavirus in the USA and that is not comforting information. This morning  I learned: 

  • Some college students are on Spring Break at the beach in South Beach
  • The New York Stock Exchanged  discovered that 2 employees tested positive for the Coronavirus 
  • CBSN no longer states the amount of tested positive from the national headquarters; instead, they report many more cases... Indicating that the number 6 they reported yesterday is rising
  • States have partnered with clinical laboratories to support testing, and you can also learn about the Coronavirus and Migration plan.  
  • Main city streets in the USA are quite  https://www.facebook.com/cnn/videos/2370947026499160/ 

My last couple of days were similar, but today I finally got some headway with my family routine.

Coronavirus Day 2 Dia II

Coronavirus  March 18th Day 2-Adjustments

While we remain in quarantine in the USA. I had to check to see if I am keeping my social networking. In all honesty, I have been able to connect more with my children and teachers the ever before. In my household, we are all trying to ensure that learning time is maximized by scheduled school time and still find time to enjoy our time together.  So what did I learn today? 

  • Human gathers have been lowered to 50 or fewer people. 
  • CBSN national station remains closed due to 6 people have tested positive to have the  COVID-19 😷

As we stay in uncertainty, we must still be safe and stay connected. 
So, what did you do today? Well, what I did was:

  • Wish my husband a happy birthday as he remains abroad 🎂
  • Billy Blanks Kickboxing video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJLkzjeU5FU it seems I am in better shape than my kids.
  • The local breakfast distribution center- milk, muffin, fruit, milk
  • How to navigate and complete assigned work  using Google Classroom💻
  • The local lunch distribution center- tortilla with chicken, vegetables, fruit, milk
  • Watched Amazon Prime "The Courage to Love"   https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0217749/ connect classwork to have a discussion with family. 
  • Light reading- I am reading"As Real As It Gets" by Monica McKayhan, and my children are reading "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and "Esperanza Rising."  📚
  • Let Dance- keep moving.
Although this is not an easy time for social gatherings. You can create your own group that consists of conversations. HASTA MANANA!
