I don't mind telling you, I am desperate for some normalcy. I've done my best to establish some consistent routines working from home. But you know what they say about consistency and little minds…
So, yes, the coronavirus has been humbling. My attempts at establishing consistent routines over the last five months have been consistently beset by television, naps, and red wine during the work day. Maybe I shouldn't say all that out loud… pretty sure my boss reads these articles.
Anyway… both my kids are now attending college classes. My son is starting his freshman year at University of Maryland 100% online, semi-confined to his dorm room. Not ideal.

I didn't get to see my aunt and uncle who live 20 minutes away on Mount Pleasant, but we did have a nice beach happy hour and dinner with my cousin, his wife, and daughter. It is amazing how good I feel after that little jaunt.
And I'm determined to keep the good feelings going, so I've been making the 20-minute drive into Baltimore's Mount Vernon neighborhood where I can sit in my office at Angel HQ for a few hours every day. I've always been aware that it's the little things that make life sweet. I feel damned lucky to have an office to sit in…
