For starters, our daughter has been ahead of the curve in running her business remotely. She has a successful web design and research business. She helped develop one of the first websites back in 1994 with Warner Brothers for Rosie O'donnell. Her gotomedia employees began working remotely the last few years.
Now with this WWIII type experience, we are getting more practice in "applied planning" as explained by Eckart Tolle. It occurs to us that loosing our electricity is something that has happened many times here on Mercer Island. It's time to get a generator.
Sunday, the girls had a session of practice for entrepreneurship. They sat around the kitchen table and came up with a list of invention possibilities. They are good at brainstorming.
The girls were promised a dog. So it was decided that this isolation time is a good time to train a new puppy. "Suki" (means 'I like you' in Japanese), a Bernedoodle is now part of the Goto household. Suki crate trained the first night or two, but the girls are working on potty training. Our 12-year-old says, "I didn't know it would be so much work." Cleaning up the pee and poop is going well.
The toilet paper roll is lasting longer. The motto: "Three to Pee, four for more!"
Our 10-yr-old is delighted with her designer sleeping/desk area with a Crow's Nest view upstairs. She prides herself in her picture perfect cleaning.
I cancelled my get-away trip to see the English Gardens in May. But it's fun to be able to start making plans and goals for what will be fulfilling for the rest of my new life. For sure, I've solved my loneliness issue.
As an 81-yr-old, it is best I isolate completely. Exercising on my rebounder is going well and I am working to get to 10,000 on my FitBit at least every other day. So far this week, I've made it the last two days in a row!
Time to get up and move! Exercise is my goal. I plan to put in the other eye next year.
