The process of working from home has been generally smooth. A few “user error” moments on my end but nothing too bad! GFF’s IT team has been very helpful and patient along the way. The complicated part is figuring out how to teach and parent a small child from home while also trying to work: I think that’s taking all families some time to figure out because there aren’t enough hours in the day! That said, it’s been interesting to participate in Stella’s lessons and become more involved in her schoolwork.
As extroverts, my daughter and I both miss seeing teachers, classmates, coworkers and clients in person, so we will definitely be looking forward to returning to school and work when things have calmed down. In the meantime, we are thankful for technology that allows us to remain connected and productive. And we’re having fun going on walks and spending more time with our dogs (who definitely don’t mind us being home more often)!
