For me, I started working from home on March 18, 2020. I think that it was the next day that the governor ordered non-essential state employees (not emergency or law enforcement) to work from home. I mentioned last week that it will probably be at least a year of working from home for me.
But it has allowed me to spend more time with our three Beagles. Our two eleven-year olds that we had raised from birth, Zeus and Athena, had limited time left on Earth. Twice a week for three weeks, I would drive 1.5 hours in the morning from Columbia, SC to Greenville to drop Zeus off for radiation; my wife would drive up in the afternoon to pick him up. Zeus's last day was October 27 and his sister's was November 30. Our four-year old, River, was mourning and miserable. Earlier this month, we drove to Raleigh to pick up a nine-year old, Austin, whose owner passed away in September. River has accepted Austin and she is no longer howling, except for ambulance sirens.
