Dutch Lock Down Day Sixty Four

I totally worked today.

Like, not for Red Hat or the new company, but I organized my wall calendar with upcoming events and worked on a CFP for a virtual event and setting up IRC on my personal laptop and basically nested in my home office.

Okay, so I ate? AND I’M STILL HUNGRY

But first the news:

While I still don’t know what’s going on with my metabolism, I know that I’m still having nightmares, that I skipped today’s walk, and that I don’t have to cook tonight.

Life is good.
