Lockdown Day #8
And the boredom is kicking in. Mrunmay's exams are about to get over and there's only so much he can do on his own. Meghana and I are on call almost through the working hours and hence can't spend time with him. And the post lunch he starts getting bored. Today he said - "I am hating this WFH". I am not surprised. There were very few days when either of us were WFH and he was also home. So he is not used to see us around but not spend time with us. He is finding some ways on his own to keep himself occupied - reading and TV is common. Now he ia also spending time with his Robotics kit, some Python programming, some synth etc. Hope he will find more ways as days go by.
Another day has passed without stepping out. Routine is somewhat settled, but will change again as Mrunmay's exams will get over on this Friday. Hopefully I can start working early and finish early so that I can give him some time.
I was talking to one of the team members generally checking if he is doing well. He seemed doing just fine.. said "my wife and I both are having fun, both continue doing our work, but having fun". That made me realized that every person doing WFH may not be going through same state as I am. Here Meghana and I barely get time to talk to each other through the day. And this diff is probably keeping their energy and enthusiasm.
With the rising cases, it looks like the rules will become stringent about stepping out. I heard even jogging outside is not allowed even if you are alone. Seems weird though.
Will need to see how this Lockdown unfolds further.
