@signalstation Funnily, my house is now cleaner than it's been in months, simply because I have to stay here all the time and look at it.

In case people haven't noticed, I am trying to toot more to try and overcome social isolation of being permanently WFH/homeschool teaching.

So far, during the morning my wife wrangles the kids (three, cause we also have my niece) and works intermittently, and in the afternoon it's my turn. This way we each get four productive hours and the kids get some semblance of an education.

I am hoping that after a week or so this will be easier. I have a sneaking suspicion that schools in NYC aren't re-opening this year.
