..new cases today here in NZ. Been in single digits for a while, but this is our first clean day.

We’re still under a pretty tight lockdown here for the next week and a half at least, (though we’ve come out of full shelter in-place). But I’m starting to believe that when we come out we might stay out.

Though it’s not all rosy. As I write this I’m supposed to be dealing with paperwork associated with pay cuts and restructuring: the company’s positioning for shit to stay ugly for a while on the economic front.

And on the personal front, I currently own two houses I can’t live in or rent, am renting a third I actually live in, have major renovation contracts in place on both the unlived in ones which I can’t wriggle out of without major consequences, and since none of this was entirely voluntary you can imagine how ugly my finances look. So I need a pay cut like a kick in the head. Beats unemployment though.

Still apparently I don’t need to worry about my folks dying of COVID19, so that’s good.

Bouncing bomb for your time. Because what goes down will come up. And go down. And come up. And go down. And come up. And go down. And....ah, well, bad analogy.
