    Looks great. I felt tired just looking at the before and after. Nice job.

    My wife and I are both retired and still working. Well, I still am at the moment, she is on hiatus.

    I am essential, so still going to work every day. Actually have less to do with so many things shut down. Occasionally get some free food from the local places still open. Still go to the farm as needed, and getting ready to make it a daily trip, save for rainy days. Got plenty of bourbon.

    Wife is staying busy at home, made some sourdough bread Sunday and has been collaborating with the neighbor who is smoking beef, pork and some goose breast I have. Good eating! But she shows signs of cabin fever. We are okay and should be for he foreseeable future.

    Pretty much everything.

    My wife, our health, home/lifestyle, family and friends.

    Although, I do have a 90 minute one way commute to work, which I don't enjoy.

    It's by choice and a small price to pay.

    Downtime has let me remodel our 3rd 3/4 bathroom. It's MY bathroom in man land which is in the FROG so I got to do it up to my taste. I went industrial which my wife hates but she has her say so over the other two bathrooms. I'm almost done but about out of steam. You don't always think about all the work, money and time that goes into a project when you start. I would never do our larger bathroom myself, just an armature.
    -Removed toilet, sink, mirror, toilet paper holder, light fixture, base boards, tile, tile backing board, 100,000 backing board nails +/- 1.
    -Fix all the holes and imperfections in the sheetrock, prime, paint
    -Lay new backing board, tile, grout, grout sealer, baseboards, wax ring, toilet , new toilet paper holder, new mirror, new faucet, new sink, new hand towel holder, new light fixture.
    Here is the old set-up. This was as is from when we moved in. I literally had to bend over to wash my hands. Being the room was so small I went with a pedestal sink and have boxes on the shelves for cleaning gear, toilet paper and hand towels you would normally keep under the sink.

    I've been practicing social distancing for probably twenty years. I've always been a homebody person. Only thing I'm missing is hitting the golf course with my wife and the the gym by myself lol.

    Otherwise, life is great! My wife and my two dogs are awesome!

    Been wrenching on the cars a lot lately.

    Those diecast races were pretty neat. Gotta admit, I got hooked and watched each video. Anything that puts a smile on your face is great! :)
