    update: We ended up calling the number they gave us and found out the problem was nothing we did or didn’t do. Turns out our router was registered by someone else named Matt Everly on Feb. 14, 2020! The only WiFi network showing was Everly WiFi, not what our default name was, but that didn’t mean anything to us.
    All right Amazon- you’re next. I ordered this as a new item

    Was just at Menards. Forgot to look at prices of masks, TP and soap.

    Guessing it about time to change into pajamas again. Got dressed to go for recreational drive in old Porsche. Not much reason to stay in street clothes now that I am back home.

    Life is good outside the obvious. I have a job that’s very easy to work from home so no worries there. Other than that I was in the very early stages of looking for houses.

    I’m running out of friends that still live in Dallas, a lot of them have moved and the last two really good friends are moving in April. So while Dallas is on the list of potential places it’s quickly going away. Looking at Chicago, Minneapolis, Dallas, Vegas, Seattle and San Diego. Leaning towards Chicago because of a lot of ISU friends and Seattle since the HQ Mothership is starting to come calling.

    I also applied to some pretty top business schools for an MBA with a GMAT exemption to see if anyone them will accept me without it. Which might change some things and postpone house buying. NYU seemed semi promising when I interviewed with them. I’m expecting a lot of them to tell me to take the GMAT since my ISU GPA was pretty damn low. No harm in trying though since my company pays for application fees and will pay for tuition. At the very least they’ll tell me what I need to improve on.

    How’s baby life? I haven’t been active in this thread since shortly after they were born.

    Wife wanted homemade bread. Gets stuff and then says, can you make it you have more patience than I do with that stuff. There is an experience from 30 years ago. Let’s see how it turns out.

    Flour Water Salt Yeast has been one of the best cookbooks I've ever bought. All about making bread and my bread has turned up to 100 ever since I bought it. Amazon Link - https://amzn.to/3999Ua3

    Doing well too...aside from the obvious. We can both wfh. Lot with a toddler around though so idk how weeks of this will go. He did ok this week. Excited for warmer weather so it's easier to get outside and go do stuff.

    Good luck on MBA stuff!

    Used the bread for supper. Used as pizza dough. Turned out ok, but one piece filled you up and I made two pizzas. Enough for all of tomorrow but I’m smoking us some pulled pork so meals will be leftovers all week.

    Had an old neighbor and friend from the hometown contact me today about checking in on my Dad and helping with supplies etc.

    Not saying that's not happening elsewhere but I ****ing love Iowa and small town life and will be forever proud and grateful I grew up there.

    Local animal shelter telling people that they have rescued dogs to keep you company while quarantined. Will probably be a pitbull and be biting my *** the whole time.
