    My wife tested positive for COVID

    We aren't too worried about it because we are young, we have been masking up, and we have not visited our elderly family in quite some time. It still sucks nonetheless.

    I have no desire to sample such foul offerings firsthand. My agents have done so at my bidding and have confirmed that your braggadocio is not entirely unfounded.
    They are not easily nauseated. You are clearly a force to be reckoned with.

    You will be contacted in due course with full instructions.

    Everything is happening to you, this year. Hurricane after hurricane, deaths in the family, and now this. Hopefully, it will pass without symptoms of any sort...but...you seem to be a lightning rod of the weirdest kind this year.

    She is just very lethargic and lost her sense of smell. Every once in a while she'll catch a fever, but so far it hasn't broken 101.

    2020 has been a rough year, but I'm just grateful that I am still employed and have a good core of friends and family. That alone is much more than some.

    I was laid off at the end of July after nearly 15 years at a job I quite liked. It's a bummer for sure.

    Will the job come back, or is it a permanent change?

    Well they said that engineering was not a key skill in the company anymore. Which struck me as sounding a bit odd because it's an engineering company.

    So I reckon it's gone forever. So it goes.

    When I was an exclusive agency owner with Allstate, they made a shift from being an insurance company to being a data collection company that sells insurance.

    That was when I saw the writing on the wall for the traditional brick and mortar franchise model that I was under. If I had to guess, the will be less than 1 agent per parish (or county) in the next 10 years and everything will have been moved to their mobile app, website, and/or corporate customer support (which is more often than not outsourced).

    Have you considered becoming a bereavement counselor?

    I counsel you to avoid it as much as possible. Bereavement is no fun for anybody, so it would be best if you just avoided it. As we get older, that becomes harder and harder, but it's still a goal.

    The company that I work for have an offsite learning allowance which allows us to essentially get paid to learn something.

    I've been taking a Udemy course on NodeJS and I have learned a ton. I'm excited to have this new skill in my pocket.
