It’s just after midnight here and the very start of Day 40. I’m awake, not because of insomnia, but because I’m not ready to sleep and then work again.
I’m on my 4th week working from home. Today I had on a nightgown, but no one knew because they only see me from the chest up in video chats. I put lipstick on and it looks like I’m trying to look good for work.
I’ve been self-isolating since about a week after my quit date. It has helped not being around smokers. I hope that in addition to quitting cigs, this difficult time that we’re going through will cause a shift in our culture allowing us to be softer with each other. Life is precious and we know that now more than ever.
